Millie Bobby Brown Is at the Center of Drama Between Paris Hilton and Evan Rachel Wood

When Millie Bobby Brown posted an Instagram photo on Oct. 29, she likely had no idea that it would lead to so much drama

The Stranger Things actress shared a picture of herself in a fitted mini-dress, prompting tens of thousands of complimentary comments, including one from Paris Hilton. But not everyone liked what The Simple Life star had to say. 

Among the critics was Evan Rachel Wood. Wood seemingly felt that Hilton’s comment was inappropriate, and she didn’t hesitate to let her know it.

A closer look at Millie Bobby Brown’s Instagram post

Brown shared a photo of herself in a cheetah-print dress with spaghetti straps and dangling earrings, with her brown locks swooped into a slick ponytail.

“Same dress but v different day,” Brown captioned the post.

Fans quickly hit the comments to compliment the actress, calling her “gawgeous,” “beautiful,” and “pretty.”

Hilton also left a comment. “That’s hot,” she wrote, mimicking her famous catchphrase from the early aughts. Hilton topped off the comment with a friendly pink heart emoji.

But Wood wasn’t happy about Hilton calling Brown “hot.” She responded to Hilton’s comment by reminding her that Brown is still underage. “She’s 15,” she wrote.

As of writing, Hilton has not responded to Wood’s comment.

Fans weigh in on the drama

Many people backed Wood, with one person saying (via People), “You are the moral compass of modern Hollywood!” Another thanked the Westworld star for her comment.

“My daughter is 15 and doesn’t dress like this. Nor does she have friends who do,” someone else wrote. “She tells me all the time that she doesn’t want to grow up too fast and I think that is few and far between sometimes in today’s kids. Let them be kids first :)”

But just as many people came to Hilton’s defense.

“Some of y’all haven’t seen The Simple Life and it shows,” one person mused.

“She said ‘That’s Hot’ not ‘you’ or ‘she,’” another noted. “If anyone familiar with her knows that the phrase ‘that’s hot’ just basically means ‘that’s cool’ or to show appreciation for something you think is awesome.”

The entertainers have not yet commented on the matter.

It’s not the first time that drama has happened on Brown’s Instagram

In September, Brown was accused of faking a skincare routine in an Instagram video highlighting products from her beauty line, Florence by Mills.

In the clip, Brown tried all of the products, but she appeared to retain her eye makeup, prompting speculation that she only pretended to use them and was rubbing her face with dry hands.

She later apologized in a note shared to Instagram.

“I’m still learning the best way to share my routines as I get to know this space better — I’m not an expert,” she wrote. “I thought doing a quick video replicating my personal process for that night was okay, but that’s not what was conveyed. I understand, I appreciate all of your feedback on this journey, please keep sharing your thoughts and I will too!”
