Navigating the pressures of Hollywood can be difficult, which is why many celebrities lean on their loved ones during tough times, including Brie Larson. The 27-year-old actress recently revealed that her friends and A-list stars Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence “saved her life.”
During an interview with Vanity Fair, the Sacramento native admitted she felt extremely isolated while promoting the 2015 critically acclaimed film Room. “[I] felt lonely and bad sometimes…[and was] embarrassed to keep talking about [myself],” she confessed to the publication.
Emma and Jennifer helped lift Brie’s spirits up by sending sweet messages to the Golden Globe winner. “Emma wrote this beautiful e-mail out of nowhere, and then one day Jen sent me a text message after she saw Room, and we started talking,” Brie stated, adding that she talked to the Hollywood veterans “about everything that was going on in [her] life” in their group chats.
Delivering bursts of positivity is a theme in this threesome’s friendship. The Kong: Skull Island star recalled a time when Emma gave her a inspirational book called I Can Fly, an elephant totem for her purse and a good luck card before the Academy Awards in 2016. “It’s those little things,” she stated.
Brie further explained how grateful she is of the close bonds she shares with the stars as she did not have many friends growing up. “That support and acceptance was everything. I was home-schooled, so I didn’t have friends that had the same interests as me, and I found it to be absolutely incredible,” the actress said.
The trio’s unbreakable bond is still going strong as they continue to support each other both personally and professionally. Brie recently posted a touching message on Instagram after Emma won an Academy Award for her role in La La Land. “You know what’s better than winning? Watching your friends win. @theacademy,” she wrote.
