  • Quotes

    • Brie: 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.

    • Brie: I wasn't interested in going to the school dances. I wasn't interested in going to the football games. What I wanted was to be in my room painting my walls and doing weird stuff. That's what I wanted and I got to do what I wanted, so that, to me, is my high school experience.

    • Brie: I was home-schooled, was always very close with my mom and was very straight-laced and square. I was never the rebellious one, and I never threw hissy fits.

    • Brie: I had a tough time fitting in, as I guess most kids do. I felt like school was kind of a grand opportunity to figure yourself out and to figure out what you wanted.

    • Brie: I didn't have a regular school experience and wanted a more abstract way of learning. I started exploring in lots of different creative ways. It gave me the opportunity to travel and play music, so it was good for me.

    • Brie: Sometimes I laugh with my parents, and sometimes I yell at them, and both are therapeutic.

    • Brie: It's very scary to allow the world to see you.

    • Brie: I'm so used to swimming with the piranhas. And they're really not that bad.

    • Brie: I was 3 when I told my mom that I knew what my dharma was and that I wanted to be an actor.

    • Brie: I have a sister and her name is Mimsy, like from 'Alice in Wonderland,' so we've got some strange names in our family.

    • Brie: I didn't go to prom - I was homeschooled.

    • Brie: 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.

    • Brie: In the past I've been very into the falling part, very into the swimming in the dark, deep emotional water. 'Rampart' I really went into it and it took me three times as long to get out of that depression as it did to just do the scenes. I had to learn to give it my all and then go home and laugh.

    • Brie: I was the type of person that would show a PowerPoint presentation about why I should do something versus crying and screaming over it.

    • Brie: I know how to have a conversation, but I've never done improv. I've never taken improv classes.

    • Brie: I think it starts to feel really redundant when you start to do something the same way over and over again. I don't think it's good to become so dependent on a certain writing process.

    • Brie: Whenever you want something that you're not going to get, suddenly the whiney 3-year-old comes out in you.

    • Brie: 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.

    • Brie: 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.

    • Brie: I think more things are becoming socially acceptable. I think that just by having more media, whether that's TV or Internet, we're able to see more things.

    • Brie: For me, the dumbest rule is that you can't chew gum in school.

    • Brie: For some reason, chewing gum for me gets my brain going.

    • Brie: 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: (on the set of Sleepover) It was soooo crazy because we've got 20 15 year-olds and everybody was so nice. We were all just there to have a great time. And our director was young, too, so he wanted it to be as fun as possible and all get to know each other.

    • Brie: You know what? 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.

    • Brie: I write the music so I kind of have a lot more control over it, which is nice. Image-wise – this is just who I am. I can't be anybody else.

    • Brie: (on her singing career) I'm actually incredibly lucky just to have a record deal just because the record industry is kind of dying down right now, because of CD burning and stuff like that. I think I've been really lucky to have this opportunity and I'm really taking control of it. I'm so lucky also to have a record label who is really letting me be creative with it. A lot of labels are more like, No, this is what you're doing. I'm just so lucky that I get along so well with them. We hang out all the time.

    • Brie Larson: I have a pretty good sense of humor and am able to laugh at myself. I think it's important to not put too much pressure on life and not make things that happen a huge deal, because I think in this industry especially, there is a lot of room to mess up.

    • Brie Larson: The album is really a big part of me and if I can give anything to those girls out there struggling to find themselves and their place, it's these songs. I'm always there to support girls through their insecurities and doubts because I think it's important.

    • Brie Larson: You always get the strangest comments like, my hair is too blonde or I'm too tall. And it makes you start to think, Man, I wish I was three inches shorter. The one that really bugs me is that I'm told I'm too smart to make it in this industry. It can be hard sometimes to hear stuff like that.

    • Brie Larson: (about music instruments) Well, here is my big secret... if you want to be good at anything you have to practice!
