Brie Larson was born with the birth name Brianne Sidonie Desaulniers, and is an American actress. She stars as the headline superhero in the Captain Marvel movie franchise, and won a Best Actress Academy Award for her role as a kidnapped woman in the 2015 movie Room. Larson has also starred in Kong: Skull Island and made her directorial debut in Unicorn Store. As a ten-year-old, Brie made her screen debut in a small part for a 1998 episode of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
Born on October 1, 1989 in Sacramento, California, her zodiac sign is Libra.
There is nothing published confirming what religious beliefs Larson has. We did find a mention of her being Christian but without any attribution to back up this claim it can’t be considered as a fact.
Keeping her religious views private shouldn’t come as a surprise given Brie’s reluctance to open up about her personal life.
“Because we put ourselves in a movie or on TV, then it must mean we want to be completely open to the world,”the actress once told the press. “I understand their point of view, but it’s difficult to explain how terrified it makes me. I’m so nervous.” (1)
Since winning her Oscar for playing an abused kidnapping survivor in Room, Larson has been vocal about a number of movements. She has lent her voice toward wanting stronger starring roles for women in movies, and with standing firm in supporting women who have claimed to have been victims of sexual assault by men. Sometimes Brie’s actions generate controversy, such as the time she stood alongside Casey Affleck on the Oscar stage and did not applaud during the actor’s acceptance speech. Allegations of sexual misconduct had been made against Affleck by female workers on the set of a 2010 movie. (2)
When asked if she wanted to explain why she chose not to applaud for Casey Affleck, Larson said, “I think that whatever it was that I did onstage kind of spoke for itself. I’ve said all that I need to say about that topic.” (3)
In 2013 Brie began a relationship with Alex Greenwald, the lead singer of rock band Phantom Planet. The two announced their engagement in 2016, but in early 2019 the couple ended their engagement plans and called it quits. (4)
