In 2016, Millie Bobby Brown's character from "Stranger Things" was a favorite Halloween costume choice. 

While most people couldn't pull it off quite quickly, singer Halsey could pull it off better than anyone else, and this was due to their uncanny physical resemblance.

This has always been brought up repeatedly and most recently, at Halsey's appearance on "The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon."

Halsey was asked by the host who should play the singer in a movie. The singer, who identifies as they/them, didn't think twice before suggesting Brown, adding that they looked like sisters. Read on for more details about the disclosure.

In a recent appearance on "The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon," Halsey revealed who they'd like to act in a biopic of their life if produced.

Fallon then brought up a picture of Halsey dressed up as Eleven for Halloween, a character played by Brown in "Stranger Things." "I mean, yeah, Millie would be great," the New Jersey native added. "But I don't really think I'm famous enough to cast Millie."

They continued, "It's kind of uncanny how much we look alike. It's like, 'Oh no, we actually just look like sisters.'"
