Glare - Brie Larson - Netflix

Brianne Sidonie Desaulniers (born October 1, 1989), known professionally as Brie Larson, is an American actress, filmmaker, and musician. She is the recipient of such accolades as an Academy Award, a British Academy Film Award, a Golden Globe Award, and a Screen Actors Guild Award. Born in Sacramento, California, Larson was home-schooled before attending a training program at the American Conservatory Theater at the age of 6, becoming the youngest student accepted there. After relocating to Los Angeles, she began her acting career at the age of 8 with sketches on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. She appeared as a regular on the 2001 sitcom Raising Dad, and subsequently played supporting roles in several films, including Hoot (2006), Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010), 21 Jump Street (2012), The Spectacular Now (2013), and Trainwreck (2015). From 2009 to 2011, Larson appeared as a sardonic teenager in the television series United States of Tara. Larson's breakthrough came with the acclaimed independent drama Short Term 12 (2013). Further success came in 2015, when she starred in Room, an acclaimed drama based on Emma Donoghue's novel of the same name. She won several awards for her portrayal of a kidnapping victim in the film, including the Academy Award for Best Actress. In 2017, she starred as a photojournalist in the adventure film Kong: Skull Island, which became her highest-grossing release, and portrayed Jeannette Walls in The Glass Castle. As a filmmaker, Larson wrote and directed two short films, The Arm (2012) and Weighting (2013); the former received a Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival while the latter was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the SXSW Film Festival. She made her feature film directorial debut with the independent comedy-drama Unicorn Store (2017). As a musician, Larson released the album Finally Out of P.E. in 2005.

Glare - Personal life and off-screen work - Netflix

Larson has been in a relationship with musician Alex Greenwald since 2013. In May 2016, Larson's representative confirmed that she and Greenwald are engaged. She is an advocate for sexual assault victims. At the 88th Academy Awards, following the performance by Lady Gaga, in which she brought various sexual abuse victims on stage, Larson hugged all the victims as they exited the stage during the commercial. During the following year's ceremony, Larson presented Casey Affleck with the Best Actor Award, but in light of his past sexual harassment allegations, Larson took a step back and stood with both her arms at her side during a standing ovation from the audience for Affleck. Commenting on her actions, Larson told Vanity Fair, “I think that whatever it was that I did on stage kind of spoke for itself." In August 2017, Larson distanced herself from the non-profit cinematheque Cinefamily after several women accused its co-founder Hadrian Belove and vice president of the board of directors Shadie Elnashai of sexual harassment and assault.
