Millie Bobby Brown revealed she felt like ‘the female version of Tom Cruise‘ doing her own stunts for her role as Princess Elodie in the upcoming film, Damsel.

While reflecting on filming the project for Netflix, the Stranger Things actress, 20, opened up about how empowering it felt to test her physical limits from scaling up a rock wall and riding horses to wielding a large sword.   

‘I did all my own stunts from start to finish,’ she said while appearing on The Drew Barrymore Show. 

Despite admitting to initially feeling ‘scared’ about doing her own stunts, she told the host, 49, that it ended up making her feel ‘like Tom Cruise.’

‘Tom Cruise is the coolest,’ Barrymore gushed, to which Brown enthusiastically agreed as they sat side by side in coordinating lavender outfits from the British star’s new Florence by Mills fashion line. 

Previously, on Instagram, the performer stated that doing her own stunts, opposite of Love Simon star Nick Robinson, left her feeling ‘like a warrior.’

In this new film, Brown plays a noblewoman that agrees to marry a handsome prince, only to discover that his family intends to sacrifice her to repay an ancient debt. 

According to IMD, she ‘must rely on her wits and will to survive’ after finding herself trapped in a cave with a fire-breathing dragon. 

‘It was very physically demanding, I’ve never been challenged than the way I was on this film,’ she said in a behind-the-scenes video, uploaded to Netflix’s Instagram.

Over his more than 40-year career in Hollywood, Cruise has gained a daredevil reputation for doing some of the most dangerous stunt in cinematic history. 

This includes driving a motorcycle off a cliff and parachuting to safety in Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One, climbing a 2,000-foot cliff in Mission: Impossible 2 and holding his breath for six minutes for an underwater stunt in Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation.

During her latest talk show appearance, Brown also raved about her relationship with fiancé Jake Bongiovi and passion for fostering animals.

When asked about how both her parents and future in-laws also met their spouses at a young age, the two-time Emmy nominee talked about their influence on her and Bongiovi’s love story.

‘We grew up with really wonderful relationships to observe and I think that it just set a precedent for what we want in our lives,’ she said. ‘I watch my parents, like, fall more in love every day and that same goes for when I see Jake’s parents and I think that’s just what we wanna, you know, in hopes to achieve for ourselves.’

Brown later revealed that she is ‘fostering 23 dogs right now’ and declared a partner that is ‘good with animals’ as a swoon-worthy trait. 

The pair met via Instagram before they were photographed out together in June 2021.

‘I’m very very lucky to be with him and to be experiencing life with him,’ she said in an interview.

The 21 year-old actor popped the question April of last year after two years of dating in an elaborate underwater proposal while on vacation.

‘Jake and I bonded over diving. We love diving, we got our diving licenses together,’ she recently revealed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. 

‘One day we were on vacation and he was like, “Mil, you’ve got to be up at 8:00 AM we’re going on a dive. And I was like, “8:00 AM? Dive like, what are we…’ she added.

She added that Bongiovi told her they were, ‘going to the same spot we usually go to,’ but she suggested, ‘It’s boring let’s go somewhere new.’

‘He’s like, “No, we have to go to this spot.” So we go under, and we’re like many meters down, and he gives me like a shell. And I turn it over, and it’s a a ring,’ she said.

She said they both looked at each other as she mumbled something, mimicking how he sounded in his diving gear.

Brown added he motioned to go up, adding, ‘Because this means, “I wanna go up,” so that technically would mean like, “No, I don’t want to marry you, I want to go up.’

‘I was like, “Okay,” she said, making an hand gesture that signified she would marry him, joking, ‘I think it was underwhelming, but we freaked out anyway.’

The romantic proposal, however, took quite the unique – and nearly death-defying twist – though, Brown explained.

‘He puts the ring on my hand and as I go to show him, the ring falls off my finger, plummets like, so fast, it was like a a cinematic movie,’ she explained.

'We grew up with really wonderful relationships to observe and I think that it just set a precedent for what we want in our lives,' she said

‘Jake threw himself into — like, so deep. Like the diver was like, “You can’t do that. Your ears. Literally, you’re brain will explode.” He throws himself, he does a a cinematic like grab, opens, and he saved the ring,’ she said. 

She explained, ‘I truly feel like it’s a a reflection of who he is, and I feel like we’re always going to have each other’s back. And if anyone drops the ball, we got it. So there we go.’

Brown adds, ‘We got to the top, and he was like, “Do you want to marry me?” And I was like, “Oh, yeah. I mean, yeah that would be — you should probably ask me.”

‘And then he was like, “You know, I bought you this ring because your mom wouldn’t let me take her ring.” Which is the one I’m wearing this is my mum’s ring. And my mum was like, “Absolutely not, Jake. You’re not taking my ring down there. I know you’ll drop it,” and sure enough he did,’ Brown joked.

‘She was right so when we got up on the boat, he was like, “This is your mum’s ring, and I got it from your parents.” And it was very magical. And his parents were there and we just looked so disheveled coming out from a a dive. We were like, “We’re engaged, but also we have to tell you this crazy story that just happened,’ Brown said.
