The penny has dropped and once you see it, you can’t un-see Millie Bobby Brown’s celebrity doppelgänger.
The Stranger Things star has a striking resemblance to Natalie Portman and Twitter is going into meltdown.
There are theories how Portman is her mum surfacing and the photos of their faces merged together are actually pretty creepy:

Millie is one of the principal people who’s responsible for this 80s nostalgia and making the TV show, Stranger Things so popular.
She’s regarded as an international treasure.
Yet she was conspicuously absent from the red carpet walk with the rest of the Stranger Things cast at the Golden Globes in December and instead, opted for a solo walk in front of the cameras.
The rest of the cast mates, including Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin and Finn Wolfhard, walked the carpet as a team, without Millie.
It wasn’t long before fans picked up on the significance of her solo outing, with many deciding to question why the cast weren’t together.

While an official reason for her absence hasn’t been given, clues can be derived from the Instagram story of Brown’s make-up artist, Kelsey Deenihan.
The story reportedly showed Brown still in make-up prep about 20 minutes before her co-stars appeared on the carpet and so she didn’t make it down on time, according to Refinery 29.

Millie did eventually make it down onto the carpet about an hour after her co-stars had completed their run and she did eventually manage to reunite with her cast mates at an after-party.
Fans weren’t happy with her absence, with many taking to social media to voice their dissatisfaction at the seeming disconnection between the group:

I don’t like that Millie Bobby Brown doesn’t do the carpet with the rest of the Stranger Things cast.
It is an ensemble piece and going alone creates a perceived separation.
She should be able to hang out with the other kids and have laughs with them #wyldedish
Natalie Portman is Millie's mom. I won't accept any other answer. https://t.co/jB4SUX88Nq

Still, at least we know it was out of their hands and they’re still best friends and fight the monsters of the Upside Down together and all that.
Unfortunately, we won’t be seeing the gang reuniting on our TV screens in the hit Netflix show until 2019, according to star David Harbour.
All there is to do is wait…and find more doppelgängers to fill the time.
