Known in Hollywood circles for being difficult to work with, Brie Larson is rumored to have had a particularly difficult relationship with her Avengers: Endgame co-stars. Very vocal about her opinions, a number of controversial statements have won her few friends in Tinseltown.
“About a year ago, I started paying attention to what my press days looked like and the critics reviewing movies, and noticed it appeared to be overwhelmingly white male. So, I spoke to Dr Stacy Smith at the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, who put together a study to confirm that,” the homeschooled actress explained in an interview with Marie Claire in February 2019.

“Moving forward, I decided to make sure my press days were more inclusive. After speaking with you, the film critic Valerie Complex and a few other women of color, it sounded like across the board they weren’t getting the same opportunities as others. When I talked to the facilities that weren’t providing it, they all had different excuses.”
“I don’t want to hear what a white man has to say about ‘A Wrinkle in Time,’” said Larson at the Crystal + Lucy Awards in 2018, adding that she doesn’t hate “white dudes.”
“I want to hear what a woman of color, a biracial woman has to say about the film. I want to hear what teenagers think about the film.”
The actress emphasized that “If you make a movie that is a love letter to women of color, there is a chance that a woman of color does not have access to review and critique your film. Do not say the talent is not there, because it is.”
The awkwardness among the Avengers: Endgame cast members was evident in many of the press interviews for the movie. In a famous clip shared by Entertainment Tonight in April 2019, she gave a nasty response when Chris Hemsworth compared her to Tom Cruise.
In the short 10-second clip, Hemsworth says, “I do all my stunts.” Larson responds, “See this is the thing. I did my stunts because I thought that’s what everyone did.”
Hemsworth comments half-jokingly, “Kind of Tom Cruise over here.” Larson quickly retorts “No, I’ll be the first me, not the next Tom Cruise. Thank you very much.”
Hollywood marriages are notoriously short-lived, but there are a few couples out there that give us hope — like Elsa Pataky and Chris Hemsworth.
