'World's Most Beautiful Girl' Millie Bobby Brown Can Handle Being the Next Big Thing If...

11/8/2017 7:12 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

French model Thylane Blondeau has advice for kids out there being coined "the next big thing" like "Stranger Things" star Millie Bobby Brown, and she knows how to survive the hype.

Thylane walked her first catwalk at age 4 and was dubbed the 'World's Most Beautiful Girl' by age 6, when other kids were just learning to count past 100.

She's now 16 and still crushing it in the biz ... so when she arrived at LAX Tuesday, we asked her to coach up 13-year-old MBB. Thylane's first tip -- move to the South of France.

We should all be so lucky. She still has more practical advice, too, for Millie and other child stars.

EXCLUSIVE

One of the kids on "Stranger Things" has been so well trained on not giving away spoilers for the new season ... he sounds like a dad telling his kids no dessert before dinner.

We got Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin, and asked if he had just one little juicy tidbit he could share before Season 2 drops in a couple of days.

Besides him saying "It's gonna be good," Gaten hilariously insists on keeping a lid on things -- but he was happy to tell us about the new pressure on the whole cast, now that Season 1 "raised the bar" so high. He also opened up about his favorite stuff from the '80s ... and it's pretty funny.

Note to Gaten: That "thing" is called a cassette tape.

EXCLUSIVE

David Harbour, aka Chief Hopper on "Stranger Things," let a big cat out of the bag Wednesday when he accidentally talked about season 3.

We got Harbour at LAX Wednesday night when he talked about raging hormones on the set. The kids are getting older, and that leads to teenage craziness, especially when they enter season 3.

Hmmm ... was David supposed to mention a third season when season 2 doesn't premiere until October 27? Watch his reaction ... he tries to backpedal, but without much success.

BTW ... he seems like an awesome dude.

Barb from 'Stranger Things' Comes Out as Bi Apologizes to LGBT Fans

4/19/2017 10:05 AM PDT

Shannon Purser -- who plays Barb on "Stranger Things" -- came out as bi this week, and apologized to fans who thought her show was misleading the LGBT community.

Shannon posted the news Tuesday night in response to online backlash over her show, "Riverdale" ... which fans accused of queerbaiting. If you're unfamiliar, that's when a show teases fans into thinking characters are gay to build an audience, but ultimately they turn out to be straight.

"Riverdale" was accused of doing that with it's characters Betty and Veronica ... pissing off a lot of Beronica worshipers. That's when Shannon got involved.

She posted an offensive tweet a fan sent her -- which Shannon felt harassed by -- and then announced ... she's bi.
