“I think that’s what I found has been quite difficult: the transitioning period,” the Godzilla vs. Kong star explained. “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.”
She added, “It’s kind of like, I have 50 million people like my parents. My parents are like, ‘Yay! Thank God. You’re 17.’ Like, ‘Put on a pair of high heels. Let’s go!'”
This isn’t the first time the teenager has discussed the disheartening comments she’s received about her appearance.
Back in 2019, Millie told Harper’s Bazaar, “It’s always difficult to dress for a red carpet event because a lot of people have opinions and unfortunately you say you won’t listen to it, but you actually kind of have to.”
“For me,” she continued, “I sit there and think, I’m not going to listen to what they have to say, journalists or whoever wants to write badly about my inappropriate outfit.”
