Unknown to the general public in 2016, this “girl next door” won the Academy Award for best actress for her poignant performance in “Room”, the true story of a woman sequestered with her child by a predator. She had preceded on the charts Cate Blanchett and Jennifer Lawrence, both already haloed of a statuette, but also Charlotte Rampling and Saoirse Ronan.
At the age of 26, at this Oscar night, where she appeared in a steamy blue-gauze dress, the auburn-haired actress gained access to the club of Hollywood’s hottest actresses.
With its classic and discreet beauty, this Californian from Sacramento has won the summit. She was seen in “21 Jump Street” with Channing Tatum, and in “Crazy Amy” by Judd Apatow. And against more prominent actresses such as Jennifer Lawrence, Gal Gadot or Scarlett Johansson, Brie Larson signed a seven-deal deal with Marvel.
