Brie Larson has been working on her latest film, Captain Marvel, ever since March, and since then, she has taken a break to talk with reporters about her career and how she feels about the Hollywood scene in general. On Wednesday night, Brie went to the 2018 Crystal + Lucy Awards in Beverly Hills.
Larson spoke with reporters from E! News on the red carpet about what it was like filming her latest movie, moreover, the first female-led comic book movie created by Marvel Studios.
The actress said that it has been “sort of interesting,” and that she feels like it has been “happening to somebody else” rather than her. Instead of just saying it has been great in clear and simplistic language, the actress explained that it’s been “different,” but also “the same,” at the same time.
She thinks the only “real difference is that there are more people there.” However, she did reveal precisely what her favorite part of the movie was while preparing for her role as Carol Danvers.
She said that getting in shape, mentally and physically, was probably the most fun, because that’s where she “found the character.” Larson explained that she had reprogrammed her brain in such a way, a manner in which she had never done before, and that experience taught her a lot.
The star went on to explain that she is “proud of what it is we’re making,” and she thinks that all of the hype and anticipation will pay off in the end for her fans.
Larson also used her platform to promote activist causes, including the implementation of inclusion riders among movie reviewers. Larson said she didn’t “need a white dude to tell me what didn’t work for him.”
Larson went on to explain that her movie, A Wrinkle In Time, wasn’t “made for him.” It was created for women of color and bi-racial women, and teens of color.
The actress supports Frances McDormand’s call for more inclusion riders in the Hollywood scene. She wants more than just one “single perspective.”
