Millie Bobby Brown Cancels Pop Culture Convention Appearance: I've Worked Too Hard and Need to Rest

Millie Bobby Brown is taking some well-deserved time off. 

The 13-year-old breakout star of Stranger Things pulled out from a previously scheduled appearance at Collective Con on Saturday, citing her demanding schedule and need for rest. In a video message shared to Instagram, Brown briefed fans with the update: “Hey guys, I’ve never had to do one of these videos before. But I’ve had to cancel at Collective Con last minute, which is something I’ve never done and I’m planning on never doing again.”

She added, “I just think I’ve worked too hard and I have to rest as I’ve had a really long shoot and I’m still filming Stranger Things. I’m sorry to everyone who’s going and I promise you guys I’m going to get back to you. I love you guys all, thank you so much for your continued support and thank you.”

The pop culture-driven conference held this weekend in Jacksonville, Fla. sent their well wishes to the actress, tweeting, “A special message from Millie Bobby Brown! Get some rest and feel better soon. <3”

Millie was set to sign autographs and take photos with fans for a fee of $50 and $60, respectively, per Collective Con’s website

Similarly, Millie’s Stranger Things co-star Noah Schnapp also pulled out of the event for unspecified reasons. 

It’s been a whirlwind few months for the British child star, who attended nearly every award show with her Netflix fam and most recently stepped out on multiple occasions during New York Fashion Week in February. And with filming well underway for season two of Stranger Things, it’s no wonder Brown hoped to clear her plate for some R&R. 

Here’s to a clean bill of health in the very near future for Ms. Millie!

Javier Bardem Vows to ''Eliminate'' Johnny Depp in New Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Trailer

Javier Bardem wants Johnny Depp to walk the plank!

A brand new trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales premiered Saturday, and the feud between Captain Jack Sparrow (Depp) and Captain Salazar (Bardem) has never looked more deadly. 

Moviegoers get a little more insight into Bardem’s villainous character, and why he such a strong vendetta against the swashbuckling Captain Jack. “Pirates had infected the seas for generation, so I vowed to eliminate them all. Jack Sparrow cursed me. I will have my revenge,” he says in the 60-second spot. 

Cue an appearance from a much younger Depp, and it’s safe to say these two go way, way back. After all, Captain Salazar did come back from the dead to enact his revenge on the actor. 

There’s also more from female lead Kaya Scodelario, who stars as Carina Smyth. She’s recruited to help search for the infamous trident of Poseidon and apparently holds the key to saving Captain Jack and the other pirates from Captain Salazar’s wrath.  

Dead Men Tell No Tales will be the fifth and final installment in the Pirates franchise, and also stars Orlando Bloom, Geoffrey RushBrenton Thwaites, David Wenham, Kevin McNally and Golshifteh Farahani

Watch the full trailer above for the usual antics from Depp (once again pantsless), a monkey and a crew of terrifying ghosts. 

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is in theaters May 26, 2017.
