Actress Brie Larson wouldn’t say too much about her highly anticipated “Captain Marvel” movie, but she did reveal that she discovered her inner and outer strength through her portrayal of the titular character at the Crystal + Lucy Awards Wednesday night. “I will say that I learned that I’m much stronger than I realize in playing her,” she told.
For Larson, playing “Captain Marvel” is unquestionably a surreal moment of her career. “A lot of my life recently has felt like it’s happening to somebody else,” she explained. “I think part of it is a defense mechanism. It feels better to kind of continue to have my own understanding of myself, rather than one that was put on me by the outside world.”
According to Larson, she trained extensively for nine months in order to build her physical strength prior to production. “My highest right now is 215 lbs. in deadlifts. 400 lb. hip thrusts,” she shared, while stating, “being able to lift weight like that really changed my perspective and understanding of myself.”
While Larson said she doesn’t feel any added pressure, she surely recognizes her influence and hopes to utilize it to create more inclusion within Hollywood, including among the press. “All of this, boils down to more women with keys to power,” she stated “I want to be able to share it with others and make sure that as we move forward, there is inclusivity at the top.”
