Millie Bobby Brown has opened up about her journey to becoming a feminist, though she seems to have been influenced by a powerful, external force.

In a new interview with Glamour, the Stranger Things star opened up about finding her way to feminism with the helping hand of a psychic who told her she was destined to be one.

After being told the news, she immediately went home and googled: "How do I know if I’m a feminist?" and after a deep drive on the internet, she quickly realized that this was her calling.

"[I] really grasped the idea of feminism and what it means to me," she told the outlet. "Ultimately it’s about opportunity."

With her production company PCMA, which is named after the initials of Brown and her siblings (Paige, Charlie, Millie, Ava), the 19-year-old actress aims to live her truth by being able to award equal opportunities to other actresses who may otherwise be overlooked.

Brown’s upcoming Netflix fantasy-action film titled Damsel, also showcases her dedication to shining a light on female-focused stories. The film, which has an all-star cast including Brown, Angela Basset, and Robin Wright, follows the story of a fierce and passionate dragon-fighting princess, which the star emphasized to Glamour that the running theme throughout "is feminism."

Elsewhere in the interview, Brown opened up about another upcoming project - the latest being The Electric State, "a postapocalyptic adventure movie from the Russo Brothers."

When asked about the movie, she stated that she was thrilled to be working alongside Chris Pratt.

"To be able to go toe-to-toe with Chris Pratt!" she marvels. "It’s a very exciting opportunity that I never thought I’d be able to have, to be able to be treated the same as him and to be looked at and respected the same as him on the set by the production, by the studio."

Brown also added: "He’s such a great man, but also a great actor and a great costar. And you rarely get that in this business, to work with men that really support you and understand you and let you shine."

Pratt, also had only kind words to stay about the teenager.

"In a way it’s hard to believe she’s so young," he told the outlet. "There’s a rawness to her performances. She’s present, capable, talented, and her process is like shooting from the hip—it takes real confidence. The people who can do it are especially electric."

Millie Bobby Brown rose to fame in the Stranger Things franchise but has recently confirmed she will be saying goodbye to her humble beginnings in order to pursue other projects such as the two mentioned above.

She described the feeling of leaving the show behind as "graduating from high school."

"When you’re ready, you’re like, 'All right, let’s do this. Let’s tackle this last senior year. Let’s get out of here,'" she said. "Stranger Things takes up a lot of time to film and it’s preventing me from creating stories that I’m passionate about. So I’m ready to say, 'Thank you, and goodbye.'"

But that doesn't mean she's also saying goodbye to the great friendships she's made thanks to the show.

"No one is dying," she pointed out. "When it ends, I’m going to be able to still see these people."

Season five of Stranger Things is set to be its last season but no official release date has yet been confirmed.
