The Duffer brothers used Charlize Theron’s standout shaved head look in Mad Max: Fury Road to inspire Millie to shave her head for the role of Eleven, rather than wearing a bald cap. Brown has said in interviews on multiple occasions that her father actually cried when she shaved off all her hair.

At the time, Millie posted a video to her Instagram the day she shaved it, describing it as “the most empowering moment of my whole life.” By season two it had partially grown back so she did use a bald cap when filming flashbacks.
