Some of these moments make me so uncomfy…
Recently, Millie Bobby Brown made headlines after she kinda dissed the writers of Stranger Things. She said, “[The cast] is way too big. Last night, we couldn’t even take one group picture because there were, like, 50 of us. I was like, you need to start killing people off. The Duffer brothers are two sensitive Sallies that don’t want to kill anyone off. We need to be Game of Thrones. We need to have the mindset of Game of Thrones.“
The writers responded, asserting that they are “not Game of Thrones.” Well, the whole interaction got me thinking about times celebs were rude and snappy to people behind the scenes — from staff to crew to writers to cameramen, and more.
