Actress Brie Larson has been earning rave reviews for her performance in the new movie Room and it seems that the actress worked very hard to give the viewers the experience they deserved. Brie plays the role of a woman who is kidnapped when she is just 17 years old and forced to live in captive for seven years, having a son along the way.
Once her character manages to break free from her captor, she agrees to do a television interview and Brie Larson decided that this would be the perfect time to let the audience see how being held captive for so long can take its toll on a person. Brie has now revealed how she prepared for the role, admitting that she did something that was actually a little gross.
Larson was talking about one of the key scenes in the movie, when she explained, "I wanted that to be the scariest she ever looked. You see her with no make-up and like, not how you normally see an actress in a film, just like, raw skin, clogged pores. I didn't wash my face for a long time just to get it all gross."
She added, "At first you're sort of like, 'Eurgh, gross', and then you sort of adjust to it and then by the time she has make-up on (for the interview scene), you're like, 'Why does anyone put make up on ever (in that situation)?' It's just the most bizarre thing to me. I think that's when she looks the most horrific, it's the ugliest she ever is..."
Room is out now in the US and is set to hit the big screen in the UK on January 15.
