What do you know about this actress and singer? She is sincere, creative, authentic and supportive. Our quotes of the day are by Brie Larson. Listen to her!
Sincere: “It’s really hard to see yourself and to recognize that you are a human being like everybody else. You just think everybody’s judging you.”
Room is a 2015 Canadian-British-Irish drama film directed by Lenny Abrahamson and written by Emma Donoghue, based on her novel of the same name.

The plot focus on a woman (Larson), captive for seven years in an enclosed space with her 5-year-old son (Tremblay). Finally, they gain their freedom, allowing the boy to experience the outside world for the first time.
Creative: “Singing is an incredible expression and something that is important to me, but where I feel comfortable with how much I reveal about myself is acting. I enjoy the characters, the costumes, the wigs and just being a chameleon.”
Room premiered at the Telluride Film Festival on September 4, 2015 and had a limited release in the United States on October 16, 2015. It was nominated for four Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Director for Abrahamson, Best Actress for Larson, and Best Adapted Screenplay for Donoghue.
Authentic: “Maybe you’re not perfect, but you’re willing to actually look at yourself and take some kind of accountability. That’s a change. It might not mean that you can turn everything around, but I think there’s something incredibly hopeful about that.”
Brie Larson won several awards, including the Academy Award, BAFTA Award, Critic’s Choice Award, Golden Globe Award, Independent Spirit Award, and the Screen Actors Guild Award.
Supportive: “I’m learning with the older that I get that some feelings are just universal and that I’m not the only one who hates their hair or their life at times.”
And above all, she is a great actress: “I know that I’m an actor and I guess I could kind of put on an act, but it takes so much more time to be someone you are not. I feel so much better just being comfortable with myself and hopefully girls will accept that.”
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
