Brie Larson: Everything You Need To Know

Golden Globe Winner Brie Larson's Ultimate Style Highs


by Elizabeth Atkin |

The 73rd Annual Golden Globes was a seriously star-studded event, with Jennifers Lopez AND Lawrence taking to the red carpet - but, for us, one women really stole the show.

If it wasn’t the glowing metallic Calvin Klein gown catching your eye on the red carpet, it was definitely the humble and gracious acceptance of her Best Actress In A Drama award that managed to hold your attention.

Yep, we’re talking about 'Room' actress Brie Larson. Here's what you need to know your new style icon...

Brie Larson: The Facts

Born Brianne Sidonie Desaulniers on 1st October 1989, the now 26-year-old Californian began her seriously impressive acting career at the ripe old age of ten.

Brie Larson’s Filmography

Brie’s got one of those 'where do I know that face from?’ faces, which isn’t much of a shock considering she’s been in some huger-than-huge movies during her career.

In 2004, Brie starred alongside Jennifer Garner in '13 Going On 30', as one of the seriously too-cool-for-school Six Chicks. In 2009, she joined Rooney Mara in boarding school drama 'Tanner Hall'. In 2010, she landed the role of Envy Adams in 'Scott Pilgrim vs The World', and in 2013, popped up alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt in his directorial debut, 'Don Jon'.

Most recently, well, you could say that Brie’s been keeping busy. In addition to winning way too many independent film awards to list for her starring role in Short Term 12, she interspersed her indie darling glory with appearances in Amy Schumer's 'Trainwreck', the Channing Tatum-helmed '21 Jump Street', and 'The Spectacular Now'.

She's also been a TV regular, starring in shows like 'Raising Dad', 'The United States Of Tara' and 'Community'.

But does anyone else remember a fresh-faced Brie from the 2004 classic teen movie 'Sleepover'? No? Is that just us?

Wait, what did Brie Larson win at the Globes? And for what?

The award for Best Actress In A Drama went to Brie for her work in the 2015 drama/thriller 'Room', in which she plays a young mother who was kidnapped, and trapped with her son in the same room for over five years, finally free and re-discovering the outside world. Not to be confused with Jennifer Lawrence’s Best Actress In A Comedy Or Musical win for 'Joy'. Watch Brie accepting her award above.

Brie Larson's... teenage music career?

Yep, the future Oscar winner (we're making that prediction now) released an album in 2005, and took part in Sessions With AOL back in the day, all of which have been immortalised on YouTube. Brie also put her vocal chords to work in Scott Pilgrim vs The World.

What’s next for Brie Larson?

Surely, by now, you’ve gathered that Brie has a few films scheduled for release over the next year or two. And on the heels of her big win, we're sure plenty of incredible new scripts are set to land on her doorstep. Keep an eye out for the 2017 monster film 'Kong: Skull Island', which reportedly stars Hollywood heavyweights Samuel L. Jackson and Tom Hiddleston and reportedly began filming just days ago.
