Actress Millie Bobby Brown did not have the best things to say after kissing co-star Finn Wolfhard while filming "Stranger Things." The Netflix series started airing in 2016, with Brown starring as Eleven and Wolfhard's Mike Wheeler as her love interest.

The co-stars had shared several on-screen kisses over the years, starting from when they were just 12 and 13. At the time, Brown revealed it was awkward for them, and Wolfhard claimed he felt embarrassed watching old scenes.

Although his co Star told him he had improved compared to the first time, Brown recently implied that those were mere words of reassurance. When strapped to a lie detector machine, she said that he is still a bad kisser and has not shown any improvement over the years.

Brown recently underwent a lie detector test with Vanity Fair, where she went into detail concerning aspects of her career, personal life, and relationship with her cast mates on the popular Netflix show, "Stranger Things." The "Enola Holmes" actress answered several questions concerning her cast mates, including Wolfhard.

The Vanity Fair interview started the line of questioning by asking Brown if she thought the actor was a "lousy kisser." "You exclaimed 'kissing sucks' after your first kiss with Finn Wolfhard. Is Finn just a lousy kisser?" they asked. The actress answered in the affirmative immediately, and the test revealed her answer was true.

Eleven And Mike Wheeler In 'Stranger Things'

Netflix's 'Stranger Things' Season 3 Premiere

Brown and Wolfhard played Eleven and Wheeler in the Netflix "Stranger Things" series. The duo was depicted as love interests whose relationship began when they were children and deepened over the years. As a result, they have shared several kisses via their characters for the entirety of their adolescence.

The characters shared their first kiss on the series in 2016, during its first season. At the time, Brown was 12 while Wolfhard was 13, so it was unsurprisingly awkward on both ends. The duo joined "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" that period, and according to Brown, they were keeping things "young and juvenile."

The actress continued at the time, "I got up, and then I said, 'kissing sucks.' And then Finn was like, 'It wasn't too bad.'"

Besides the actress, Wolfhard and Noah Schnapp were in the interview and revealed that some of them had their first kiss in season one of the Netflix sci-fi.

Wolfhard also revealed that he felt embarrassed watching the old scenes because he looked like he was eating Brown during kissing scenes.

In what can now be seen as mere reassuring words, Brown said, "I will say this; We've progressed. We've gotten better."
