GET INSIDE THE HEAD OF BRIE LARSON
What’s happening to Brie Larson at this moment is every actor’s dream. On the heels of her Room triumph, the star goes gargantuan in her next project, Kong: Skull Island, and in just a few weeks she’ll walk down the biggest red carpet there is (16,500 square feet!). She sat down with Holly Millea for this month’s cover story and spoke candidly about her own story, revealing things about her past and present that paint an engaging, honest, and thoughtful picture of where she’s been and where she’s going.
To find out what she had to say check out the entire interview exclusively in our brand-new bigger, bolder March issue of ELLE (yes, ELLE magazine is literally blowing up!) on newsstands nationwide February 16. But first, a sneak peek at who the real Brie Larson really is.
15 FILMS, INCLUDING ROOM AND TRAINWRECK (2015).
Brie Larson’s breakthrough was a long time bubbling. Born Brianne Sidonie Desaulniers, a name which would have taken up the entire marquee, she began studying drama at the age of six and was racking up credits in original cable movies and TV series in her early teens, getting a long head start on her contemporaries. Like Elizabeth Banks before her breakthrough, Larson blazed in supporting roles (rock star Envy Adams in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, the mouthy daughter in Showtime’s United States of Tara, a bold spirit in the otherwise doodling Digging for Fire, Amy Schumer’s responsible younger sister in Trainwreck), both fitting in and standing out. With Room, based on Emma Donoghue’s novel, Larson proves she can shoulder the hefty demand of lead billing (and now has an Oscar nomination—her first—for best actress as additional proof), not that there was any doubt. Her unbreakable portrayal of the mother held captive for years in a cramped cell with her young son has put Brie Larson in the center of the conversation, where she belongs and isn’t likely to budge from anytime soon.
Last night, Brie attended the 2016 Screen Actors Guild Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. She was absolutely gorgeous in this Atelier Versace dress. I want to congratulate Brie because she won the SAG Award for lead actress with her performance in Room ; we are so proud of her.
