Bio For: Brie Larson
(The Latest Available Bio)

BRIE LARSON (Amy Phillips) has built an impressive career as one of the more versatile young actresses working today. Most recently, she garnered numerous 2014 Best Actress award wins and nominations for her performance in Short Term 12, directed by Destin Daniel Cretton. Her dramatic role as Grace, the director of a foster care facility, earned her Best Actress at the Locarno Film Festival, and Best Actress at the Gotham Awards. She was also nominated for a 2014 Critic's Choice Award.

The Los Angeles Times labeled her the "It Girl" of this year's SXSW film festival, with four films showing. In addition to Short Term 12 (which took home the Grand Jury prize and the Audience Award), she had supporting turns in The Spectacular Now opposite Shailene Woodley, playing Miles Teller's seemingly perfect girlfriend, as well as Don Jon, Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut, playing the cynical/ realist sister of Gordon-Levitt's character. Both films were also at Sundance and SXSW film festivals.

Up next, Larson will star in the film adaptations of two best-selling novels: Matthew Quick's ("Silver Linings Playbook") The Good Luck of Right Now, Judd Apatow's Trainwrecked and Emma Donaghue's Room.

Previously, Larson was seen in the hugely successful film, 21 Jump Street as the love interest to Jonah Hill, and received rave reviews for her supporting role in the Oren Moverman film Rampart, playing the incorrigible, defiant daughter of Woody Harrelson, a dirty cop in the Los Angeles' Rampart division.

Larson is still widely recognized for her portrayal of Kate, Toni Collette's sarcastic and rebellious daughter, in Showtime's breakout drama United States of Tara, which was created by Academy Award-winning writer Diablo Cody and based on an original idea by Steven Spielberg.

Other notable credits include Edgar Wright's Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, in which she played the rock star ex-girlfriend of Michael Cera, and Noah Baumbach's Greenberg as a young temptress flirting with Ben Stiller. She has appeared on stage at the prestigious Williamstown Theater Festival in the role of Emily in "Our Town," and recurred on the F/X cult favorite series, "The League" as an overly amorous au pair.

In addition to acting, Larson is a writer and director. Her short film, "The Arm" won the prize for Best Comedic Storytelling at last year's Sundance Film Festival. The other "Weighting" was in competition at this year's SXSW film festival.

A native of Sacramento, Larson started studying drama at the early age of 6, as the youngest student ever to attend the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco.

Larson currently resides in Los Angeles, CA.
