“I got the magic in me. Every time I touch that ‘show/film’, it turns into gold.” Will altering the lyrics to B.o.B’s Magic bode well with the artist? Perhaps if we told him the star we did it for, he might just accommodate. We are obviously talking about Millie Bobby Brown, the telekinetic teen who took the fantasy world by storm. And no, it is not because of her powers.
In fact, we are not the only ones who believe that. Natalie Portman, known for her incredible performances in films like V for Vendetta, Leon the Professional, Black Swan, and more, also had the same opinion. Let us find out why the critically acclaimed actress saw magic in the Stranger Things star.
Natalie Portman found Millie Bobby Brown absolutely wonderful
Ever since her debut, fans constantly drew parallels between Millie Bobby Brown and Natalie Portman. From their roles to their appearances, the audience just couldn’t help themselves from finding similarities. So much so that some supporters and convinced that the two actresses are the same person. Truth be told, a side-by-side comparison of their pictures can boggle anyone’s mind.
Perhaps we shouldn’t rule out time travel just yet. Natalie and Millie even met at the Golden Globes 2018 and addressed the fan theories. In an interview with MTV news, Portman narrated the incident. Apparently, Millie came up to the Star Wars: The Phantom Menace actress saying,
“People keep telling me I look like the kid version of you!”

Although flattered by the endearing and talented Brown, Natalie responded by saying, “That is very nice, but I think you’re your own magical person.” Portman, who was promoting her film Annihilation at the time, truly believed the Netflix sci-fi flagship was an “incredible show.” In fact, she even embodied Millie’s character Eleven in an SNL sketch. Portman had only good things to say about the Enola Holmes actress. She expressed,
“I see that there’s something there, but I also find her much more magical than I see myself.”
Do you think Natalie Portman and Millie Bobby Brown look alike and that brown has a magical quality? Let us know in the comments. Obviously, this also calls for a Stranger Things re-watch, don’t you think?
