Here’s what the 15-year-old Stranger Things actress had to share:
On why her Stranger Things character Eleven resonates with people: “For me, I gravitate toward people that need help. I’m just one of those people. I think my mom is the same. I gravitate towards people like that. And I think that’s what people do with Eleven. They gravitate toward her because she feels, you feel like you need to help her. I don’t know, I find that really fun, especially in movies, you feel like you can try and help people.”
On how the Godzilla: King of the Monsters trailer resonated with her: “I have a rule, if I don’t cry at the trailer, I don’t see it in a movie theater. So I haven’t gone to the movies since Dunkirk…. I also live in a small town and they pick terrible movies to play on their three adorable vintage screens. But I cried every time watching the trailer for Godzilla. And I’m not even a Godzilla super-fan. I think it’s, you know, this is definitely the movie to become a Godzilla fan.”
On her upcoming collaboration with Converse: “I have another creative collaboration with Converse, and actually a collection that I worked on last year. I collaborated with Converse on a collection that I feel really passionate about, and I cannot wait for people to see it…. [I was involved in] everything, down to the little whale symbol on the shoe, which was really fun. I feel really passionate about whales. Whales, they symbolize who I am as a person, they’re loud, they’re the queen of the sea. I love the ocean, I was born in Spain [on the coast]. So I’ve incorporated the whale through some of the things that I’ve done in the future that’s coming out.”
