Natalie Portman is flattered by comparisons to lookalike Millie Bobby Brown
Natalie Portman described her meeting with her doppelganger Millie Bobby Brown, and confessed that she watches "Stranger Things" and thinks that the young actress is wonderful.
Last month, Twitter went crazy over how similar Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown looked to a young Natalie Portman. The resemblance between the two was uncanny, but what was more uncanny was that both started off as child actresses, both works primarily in the science-fiction horror genre, and, get this, both of them have shaved their head for a role.

SNL didn't take long to pick up on the resemblance and cast Natalie, 36, as Eleven in a Stranger Things parody skit earlier this month.
Then on February 20, Natalie addressed the comparisons in an interview with MTV News, as she promoted her new science fiction horror film Annihilation, set to release on February 23.
When asked if she was a Stranger Things fan, Natalie laughed and said, "You know, it's an incredible show, and I met Millie at the Golden Globes a few months ago. She came up to me and was like, 'People keep telling me I look like the kid version of you,' and I was so flattered because she is absolutely adorable and so talented."
Natalie said that she told Millie, "That is very nice, but I think you're your own magical person." She went on to add, "It was fun to get to give a nod to that on SNL. I see that there's something there, but I also find her much more magical than I see myself."
Natalie was full of praise for the 14-year-old star, ending with an emphatic, "She's really wonderful."
Millie was ecstatic about the interview and shared the video to her Twitter account with the caption, "Was a dream come true meeting Natalie! So beautiful and talented 🙌😍."
