Brie Larson Reveals The Movie Parts She Auditioned For But Never Got
Brie Larson managed to secure the movie role of a lifetime with Captain Marvel, however, she didn’t always win big. During an appearence on her new YouTube channel, the 30-year-old actress explained how she tried out for films like Star Wars and The Hunger Games but she never made it.
In her new YouTube video, Brie asked many content creators for advice on what subjects to cover. Juanar Zurita said to her that the beauty of the internet lies in the lack of “limitations.” There aren’t any auditions, the YouTuber explained.
Larson joked, “why didn’t I do this sooner?” Larson went on to list some of the other films for which she didn’t get a part, including the Terminator reboot. Larson claimed she was on her way to the audition for the Terminator remake, but her car got a flat tire. She didn’t get the job either.
As most know, the leading role for The Hunger Games went to Jennifer Lawrence, instead. Emilia Clarke got the lead of Terminator: Genisys. The actress went on to touch on her experiences with social anxiety as a public figure, including how portraying Captain Marvel helped her come to terms with her condition.
Larson shared with her subscribers that she grew up as an “introvert with asthma.” Playing Captain Marvel allowed her to portray herself in such a way where she no longer had such issues.
This won’t be the first time that Brie has opened up about the role. During her 2019 interview with People Magazine, she stated that playing Carol helped change her life and the movie hadn’t even come out yet.
The actress explained how she learned so much from the character, including the importance of having boundaries and how a person has to have their own voice. “I’m excited to share her (Carol) with the world,” the actress added.
Fans of Captain Marvel know that not everyone loved the film. Many people online argued that the movie was too motivated by feminism and identity politics.
