Brie Larson (born Brianne Sidonie Desaulniers on October 1, 1989) is an American actress and pop singer. "I guess I can't really say where it all started. I didn't have a light bulb moment when I realized that I wanted to be a musician or an actor; I was probably too young to remember when it the idea came to me. I have always watched good movies and listened to great songwriters. I also went to the theater a lot and that was a big inspiration.
