Brie Larson Tells GQ: I Think About Quitting Actin Every Day
This weekend Barie Larson's new movie " The Gambler" hits theater
and she sat down with GQ to chat about her fun and crazy life .
The “Spectacular Now” starlet told writer Zach Baron that
she absolutely loves her gal pal Shailene Woodley, "I really
appreciate the fact that she saw me for me before even I did.
Before I could even recognize it and feel strong in that. I can't
think of anything in particular that she's actually said—it's more
just every time we see each other we cry and we hold each other
and we look in each other's eyes and we kind of go, like, ‘This
world is sooo interesting."
Ms. Larson is also into spirit animals, "I was like, 'Yeah but
for sure I'm an eagle and a lion.’ And I pulled them and I got
prairie dog. I got a beaver. I got a gopher. I got a chipmunk. I got
all burrowing small prey. My center was a black panther. But it's
like black panther mixed with like six other small rodents. So I'd
say at this point like 80 percent of me is rodent. And I had a really
hard time accepting that."
Meanwhile, Brie thinks about jumping ship from the acting game
on a daily basis. "Today. Every day. I think it is the fact that I want
to quit that keeps me going. It's very complicated. But I think part
of this whole exploration with every job that I do is, in terms of
overcoming fear and by overcoming the fear I feel so much more
complete, and I learn something new about myself. It can get
really messy inside my head and it's usually just because everybody
can get really self-centered at some point. And so what usually keeps
me from quitting is that my reasons for quitting are just lame."
