Millie Bobby Brown is tired of the people who still think she hasn't grown up over the years.

In a new interview with MTV, Millie opened up about people still viewing her the young star she was when her career began.

"I'm only 17, but at the end of the day, I'm learning to be a woman. I'm learning to be a young woman. So being a young girl, people watch you grow up, right? And they've almost become invested in your growth and your journey. But they aren't ready to accept the fact that you're growing up," she said.

She noted that it often happens with her fashion choices, especially over the most recent years.

"So I wear a crop top and people are like, 'She's 10.' I'm like, 'No, I mean, I am 17.' That's a thing that girls do," she said. "Or I wear high heels. Or I wear an outfit to an award so and they're like, 'She looks 50.' No, it's because you've watched me since I was 10. That's why you think that."

While the transition has been hard on her due to the fan reaction, Millie says she's not letting it stop her one bit.

"I think that's what I found has been quite difficult: the transitioning period. They're not accepting it and I've completely accepted it. You know, I'm ready. I'm like, 'It's been a while. Let me wear a high heel!' I'm not going to be playing those young girls anymore and it's kind of like I have 50 million people [who] like my parents," she said. "My parents are like, 'Yay! Thank God. You're 17.' Like, "Put on a pair of high heels. Let's go!'"

"I don't want anything to hold me back, which I think is the most important thing. I want to evolve," she continued. "And I don't want this industry to hold me back from evolving and telling stories that I feel like have to go with my age."

We're glad that Millie is standing her ground on this!
