Millie Bobby Brown, of Stranger Things fame, has finally broken her silence on the ‘flat Earth’ conspiracy.

While appearing on Vanity Fair’s ‘lie detector’ series, Millie is asked about the time she said that she believed the Earth was flat. To which she replies, “Unfortunately, yes I did [say that].”

Millie’s then asked whether she still believes this conspiracy. The actress laughs but then says, “No”.

The lie detector operator (a man named Judd) at this point confirms that Millie was telling the truth when she said she no longer believed the Earth was flat.

However, Millie then says, “Although, I’ve never seen, like the, you know; you know when you’re on a plane sometimes you can see it? The curve? I’ve not seen that yet.”

Which means that the Enola Holmes actress may not be entirely convinced that the Earth is round.

Judd instantly chimes in and says in a disgruntled tone, “You’ve seen satellite pictures, right?”

And Millie replies, “I have. I have, yeah. Thanks, Judd,” before making a face.

The flat Earth model is an outdated conception of Earth’s shape that’s been scientifically disproven and yet, there are many people who still believe that the Earth is flat.

And in 2018, when Millie was 14, roughly when she was filming Season 3 of Stranger Things, during a TikTok Live, a fan asked her if she believed the Earth was flat; and she said yes.

Millie explained that she’d stumbled upon a Shane Dawson conspiracy video that focused on the Earth being flat and said, “Guys, there are so many facts that it’s flat.”

“I mean think about it, like think about it… Guys, you don’t even know, you don’t even know. I think I am, what do they call it? Um, a flat, I think they call it a flat earther.”
