Good Morning Redditors!

This is Brie Larson.

I'll be on for a few hours to talk about all the things. EDIT: For those who are all "Who the heck is this person?!" I'm an American Actress mostly(You may have seen me in Scott Pilgrim VS. The World, Rampart, 21 Jumpstreet, and/or The United States of Tara) but I also play music and make my own films. My hobbies include: trying to get through the Beatles Anthology, making fonts, drinking coffee, over explaining, worrying, taking odd college classes, and going on reddit.

EDIT 2: Alright everyone, time to sign off. Thanks for the great questions. What a lovely morning. BANANA BREEEEAD.

So, you're here to talk about Rampart right?

Hey Brie!

First of all, welcome to Reddit!

Which was more fun: Working with Jonah Hill/Channing Tatum in 21 Jump Street or the cast of The League as The Au Pair?

Also, how long did it take you to perfect "Black Sheep" in Scott Pilgrim? By the way you were ridiculously hot performing this and I actually prefer you singing it to Metric.

Edit: As hot as you were singing Black Sheep, I will never get this scene of you and Rafi out of my head. Forever unclean:

TonTonClub448 karma

Hey thanks! I've been a Reddit lurker for a year now, first time speaking out. My voice is a little scratchy from staying quiet in the shadows.

Both sets were super fun to be honest. It's nice to be able to balance more dramatic films with silly kid play time movies. When I say dramatic I mean the script, not the people.

BLACK SHEEP IS PERFECT?! No one told me!!!!!! I just sang it a few times(way too few times I felt) and then I had to dance around in shoes that required vaseline to slip into them.

ItsDJ77 karma

Have any favorite subreddit(s) Brie?

TonTonClub248 karma

I was absolutely obsessed with /r/monkeyjesus. It was everything, my light. I've always found /r/toasterrights incredibly festive. Recently I've been spending time on /r/India. I'm going to be spending a few months there very soon.

NotMittRomney132 karma

Oh god, she's pretty deep in Reddit. You could perhaps say.... trapped. In Reddit.

Could it be...?

TonTonClub269 karma


DragonfromtheEast49 karma

Hi Brie, any chance that United States of Tara will make a return ? That was the best show ever ! Loved the scene with you and Keir Gilchrist getting high

TonTonClub87 karma

I doubt it. I loved that show too. And Mooshie.

pokstad31 karma

Also, is your version of Black Sheep available as an mp3? I can't find a high quality studio version of it on iTunes or Amazon!

its_that_one_guy28 karma

I thought it was included on the Scott Pilgrim sountrack on iTunes, but isn't available otherwise. I could be wrong though.

TonTonClub217 karma

It's not on the Scott Pilgrim soundtrack. It's something like...Metric got to choose which version went on the soundtrack...and they chose themselves.

four_reels241 karma

How awesome was being in Scott Pilgrim? You were probably my favorite character in that movie.

TonTonClub516 karma


It's the best movie ever and I still can't believe I'm in it.

Gyrael209 karma


You know the scene in Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World where your character meets Scott and Ramona in the coffee shop? Well, how many takes did you do to get that eye-roll you do at Scott so well? That is the best eye-roll I've ever seen.

TonTonClub349 karma

I'm not kidding when I say, at least 10. Edgar is a perfectionist.

joshi38209 karma

So, this could be entirely false, but according to Wikipedia, you're to be in an upcoming episode of Community. Anything you can tell us about that? What's it like on that set?

Also, loved you in Scott Pilgrim.

TonTonClub328 karma

Yeah! I did film an episode. You would know better than me(I don't have cable) has it aired? The set was great for me. I had just come off of 2 dramatic films and was so ready to just make laffs.

I'm not sure if I can say anything about it? But I will say most of my stuff is with Danny Pudi!

joshi38125 karma

I've heard Danny is just an all round awesome guy, I hope he was fun to work with.

As of yet your episode hasn't aired, but I will be looking forward to it. Thanks for answering!

TonTonClub252 karma

He is lovely. So are you!

TierbyFive153 karma

Your pic proof says tonttonclub and your username is tontonclub, explain yourself imposter!

TonTonClub239 karma

YOU'RE RIGHT. I had to write in the mirror image. And it was 8am. Hadn't had coffee. Can you forgive me?

Frajer124 karma

Hi Brie, I loved Kate and Moosh's relationship on Tara, was that organic or in the script? Also did you get to keep the Princess Valhalla costume?

TonTonClub219 karma

Moooooosh. We were reading a script, but that relationship was very much inspired by the closeness Keir and I had. We spent every moment together and I think the writers enjoyed watching us banter and hearing me give him advice. It's a nice change from the typical "My little brother sooooo annoying!!!" bit. Keir ended up moving into my house for a few months with his girlfriend after hitchhiking around Canada. He's the coolest. EDIT: I didn't get to keep the Valhalla costume. Showtime put all of Kate's clothes on eBay after we were cancelled - and that included the Valhalla shorts being sold separately from the rest of the costume.....ew.

TerminatioN133730 karma

That sucks about the Valhalla costume. I was wondering about that as well.

You should try and find the owners (would be willing to bet redditors would help) and buy it back from them to keep the costume together and put it on display in your house or something. It is too awesome to get lost forever.

TonTonClub105 karma

I don't know if I want to see those shorts after what they have been through.

mistress_of_seitan121 karma

No question. I just wanted to say I loved The United States of Tara and was sad when it ended.

TonTonClub207 karma

I was sad too. That's why I ate chocolate cake for breakfast.

kindofawardance109 karma

What's the most clever cheese-related joke you've ever heard about your name?

TonTonClub225 karma

I've yet to actually hear a clever one. "Brie? What - did your mom eat a lot of cheese when she was pregnant with you?" "Erm, no."

You got anything?

kindofawardance304 karma

Well, I didn't think you'd respond to my mundane question, so, no. And now I'm all giddy and shit.

But, uh... I was summering in France last year. Went to a cheese store. Ate tons of samples. Bought nothing. Not exactly a crime, but I guess it was... pretty... brie larcen-y.

I'll show myself out sorry you rock

TonTonClub524 karma

That was pretty Gouda.

HobNobz42098 karma


TonTonClub139 karma

That most incredible trust fall. Oren lights everything so the actor has the freedom to move anywhere, and say anything(or nothing). My part grew a lot from the script through this process. Working with Woody was such an honor.

musical_stampede98 karma

Who is cooler: Michael Cera or Jonah Hill?

TonTonClub229 karma

That's highly controversial.

Warlizard94 karma

Didn't know who you were, looked you up, really impressive.

Congrats on your success.

nv734lsdkf279 karma


TonTonClub503 karma

The first porn star to make cheese sexy. Melt that on your pizza and eat it.

Slevo80 karma

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is one of my favorite movies, and you were awesome in it. Hats off to you m' I need a haircut?

TonTonClub227 karma

It's looking a little shaggy.

Pinwurm76 karma

Good afternoon Brie!

I really enjoy your body of work. You were great in US of Tara and 21 Jumpstreet!

My question is: What's it like to sit on a cake?

TonTonClub140 karma


dearthed73 karma

Welcome to Reddit, this is the perfect place to "get weird".'re not here to talk about Rampart are you?

TonTonClub210 karma

One year later the reddit community is still paying the debits of the worst AMA ever done.

ZachMettenberger73 karma

You are insanely beautiful. Would you consider dating a black man?

TonTonClub178 karma

I have.

oh_sheesh26 karma

Have considered or have dated? I need to know

TonTonClub78 karma

Have dated.

Quasifrodo67 karma

Hi Brie!

So... being named after a cheese: net positive or net negative, all things considered?

TonTonClub176 karma

Net positive. But sometimes I wonder what my life would have been like with a name more...Human Namey.

LLBee65 karma

What was it like working with Edgar Wright?

Hats off to you for being so great in Scott Pilgrim by the way!

TonTonClub207 karma

He's great. Super perfectionist. He never let me blink on camera. Said it made Envy look weak.

nomansland33364 karma

What's your favorite movie you've starred in?

TonTonClub200 karma

Probably Scott Pilgrim. I love that movie.

TheRoyalTenenThom62 karma

What was it like being the au-pair on "The League?"

TonTonClub169 karma

Pretty cool. Barely had to watch the kid. Mostly just ate pistachios and laughed.

BusinessJCasual57 karma

Please visit Doug Loves Movies more.

TonTonClub58 karma

Tell Doug!

BraverP_brain56 karma

How many pineapples does the tree normally produce?

TonTonClub127 karma

I was actually just reading about this because I bought a pineapple the other day and thought "HOW DID THIS GET HERE. IT'S WINTER, AND LOS ANGELES." Is it true that if you cut the top off you can clone it?

Oh, and it's one fruit per plant yeah?

ProjectBadass56 karma

I'm a fan of your music and wondering when we can expect more?

Also what are the chances of us going on a date?

TonTonClub136 karma

You bet your ears you can. I've been demoing things as we speak. My goal is to get an EP out this year. I don't have a name for the project yet. But I love the songs so far.

The chances of us going on a date are cloudy with a chance of meatballs.

ProjectBadass88 karma

So you're telling me there's a chance.......YEAH!!!!

TonTonClub240 karma

I'm saying...there's not a very good chance. But if there was, we would be having italian.

csreid56 karma

You may have seen me in [...] Rampart

Wait, seriously?

TonTonClub108 karma


GoldRhapsody55 karma

I really enjoyed you in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and 21 Jumpstreet. My question is, will you be venturing back to television soon or will you be sticking with films for a while? If not, is there something about film that attracts you more than television?

TonTonClub133 karma

There are some interesting things happening in TV right now. I'm not against it, it would just have to be a character/show that I felt I could really grow with. Otherwise I'll just feel stagnant. I love being able to take new forms, animorphing. Going from fresco, to fresco jesus.

TakeMyWingsAndFly47 karma

Do you prefer guys in Boxers or briefs?

TonTonClub155 karma

I prefer guys that aren't chaffed. So whatever gets them in that general area.

aniston22145 karma

How did you get introduced to professional acting? Was it something you wanted to do or did your parents put you into it?

TonTonClub115 karma

It was my choice. My parents were both Chiropractors in Sacramento. When I was 3 I went up to my mom while she was doing dishes and said "Mom, I know what my dharma is - I'm supposed to be an actor."

aniston22134 karma

How did you start? I'm a teenager that loves acting but i don't know where to start professionally.

TonTonClub101 karma

I started taking private lesson. That was helpful in learning how to memorize quickly and trust instincts. Then you throw yourself in the lion's den and AUDITION. Which is a strange and beautiful form of torture.

meme_devourer18 karma

Best dive bar in Sacramento?

TonTonClub92 karma

I moved from there when I was 8. Wasn't getting much action in those days.

lalalacecilia43 karma

I loved The United States of Tara and can only imagine how much fun and exciting it was to work on it. I really enjoy seeing you in random movies (13 Going on 30, Sleepover) and being like "Hey! There's Kate!"

What was it like working with Toni Collette? Was it as awesome as I think it is to watch her "transition" to different characters?

Good luck on all your future projects!

TonTonClub80 karma

Oh man, Toni is THE BEST. She was my absolute hero idol everything I wanted to be before working on Tara. I'm happy to report that getting to know her more only made it more clear: SHE IS THE BEST. The transitions were incredible to watch. She really knew each of the alters so when she switched it was a complete change.

Xizithei41 karma

Welcome! Just a question: is your name a reference to the tool the creatures the rebel scum imported to Hoth are beaten with??

TonTonClub83 karma


AGallagher41040 karma

What's your favorite song of all time?

TonTonClub209 karma

This Must Be The Place by Talking Heads.

zzman149038 karma

I don't have a question for you, just wanted to say I thought you were perfectly adorable in 21 Jumpstreet and you pulled off every joke like a fucking pro. Hope to see you in more films soon!

TonTonClub53 karma

Hey thanks!

Heres_the_kicker38 karma

If you could reenact any movie with you in it instead of one of the other characters. Which movie and character would choose?

TonTonClub143 karma

I'd wanna be Scott Pilgrim.

Enforcer8435 karma

What Font are you most proud of?

TonTonClub92 karma

I made one where every letter looks like it's a 3d mouse hole.

friedpants29 karma

Is there any show(s) you would like to act in an episode of?? Also I loved you in Scott Pilgrim and 21 Jump Street. :)

TonTonClub112 karma

I wanna have a cartoon head on the Ricky Gervais show.

sifer627 karma

I hope I'm not too late... Who would've won in a fight between you and Mary Elizabeth Winstead?

TonTonClub72 karma

Mary! Her shoes were way more practical.

hdog201226 karma

Big fan! What is Relanxious about?

TonTonClub66 karma

It's about a boy and girl who both have extreme social anxiety so even though the two would like to go on a date, neither can get themselves to leave the house. So they go on fantasy dates. It's real good.

carrot-man24 karma

What's your favorite drink?

TonTonClub75 karma

Coffee, Banana Lassi, and fresh squeezed orange juice - I guess I love strictly breakfasty beverages? I guess I woke up thirsty. It's clouding my judgement.

VicYesterday24 karma

I absolutely loved you as Envy Adams on Scott Pilgrim. I would rewatch the movie over and over again just because of how well the director handled Envy and Todd Ingram.

I guess my question to you is, what has been the most fun project for you to have worked on in your career?

TonTonClub36 karma

Hmmm. I've had many fun experiences for different reasons. The one that I remember strongly was the first film I did without parental supervision. It was filmed in Rhode Island. I was working with a few other girls and it was my first experience of being on my own and dictating how my days were spent. I loved being able to run around in a new city.

sdgrant23 karma

Do you still sit on cakes and balloons despite not being on "Life and Times of Tara" anymore?

TonTonClub50 karma

I gave that up pretty quickly. Not a way to satisfy the soul.

kronicfeld21 karma

Better lover: Mark Duplass or Jason Mantzoukas?

TonTonClub104 karma

Neither felt real. Both of them felt like they were just, reading a script.

princessk820 karma

If you could remake any movie, frame by frame, which movie would it be, and which character would you play?

TonTonClub62 karma

Woah, that's hard. Probably Lord of the Rings. And I'd wanna be Legolas DUH.

karmaghia20 karma

Hi Brie! can you write me a song or poem for my girlfriend?

TonTonClub48 karma

Sure. What's her name. Gimme a theme or something to work with.

bluexjeans19 karma

Does it bother you that someone on Twitter stole your name (@brielarson) and is pretending to be you? In all honestly, the real you would be a better tweeter. Why don't you have an account on there? They have a block button by the way. No more James ;)

TonTonClub53 karma

I find it strange. Especially when that faker isn't creative. That twitter is rather boring isn't it? I'm in the process of getting it removed.

bree32118 karma


TonTonClub59 karma

I can't believe you said Black Banded Beings.

It's not still a thing. But we could make it a thing. Wanna make it a thing?

I smell /r/blackbandedbeings

EDIT: Working on new music. Goal is to put an EP out this year and play at least one live show!

dazedconfuseddude19 karma

What is Black Banded Beings?

TonTonClub55 karma

I fake club I toted as a real club many years ago. It was a forgetton fake club until now. Actually, it's still fake. Just remembered.

nineknives17 karma

Hi Brie, it was a (nice) surprise to see you in a JJAMZ music video. Are you pretty good friends with Z and the gang?

Also, what was up with the video? Was your character supposed to be suffering from an unrequited love with your best girl friend, or were you just super bummed that you were best friends but she ditched you at the party for some dudes?

TonTonClub30 karma

Yes! Z is my roommate actually.

We just wanted to shoot something about the intimacy of girl best friends. When girls get close, it starts to feel like a relationship. Shooting that video was one of the best weekends ever.

HeyZeusCreaseToast17 karma

Tell us the story of the first time you ever got drunk.

PS Loved you in United States of Tara.

TonTonClub59 karma

It was Halloween. I was drinking punch. It just tasted like punch. Next thing I knew I really thought I could dance. I ended up soaking wet because my glass was spilling all over me while I danced. I didn't notice.

MexicanSeaf00d14 karma

What's your favourite band?

TonTonClub60 karma

It depends. My favorites that have lasted are: Zombies, Burzum, My Bloody Valentine, Linda Perhacs, Broadcast, ELO, The Walker Brothers. My favorite stuff from the last year or so has been from Connan Mocksin, Grimes, and Bodies of Water.

LordPhilip2829 karma

Brie, I've been a fan of yours since I first saw you in United States/Scott Pilgrim, and this list only confirms my suspicion that you're a pretty cool person. I hate to self promote in this space, but a friend and I just put out a record that sounds a bit like MBV and some other stuff from that era, and it would mean a lot to me to think of you hearing it, so here goes nothing: . Thanks for all your great work in film and music!

TonTonClub62 karma

This is awesome! HEY. EVERYONE!! LISTEN TO WHAT I'M LISTENING TO EDIT: P.s. Getting some Big Black and Mazzy Star vibes too. Nicely done my Lord!

RedCarsParkFirst10 karma

Hi Brie, welcome to reddit, even though you've been here about the same length I have lol.

My question is, what made you decide to do an AMA after lurking for a year? Most people just come on here once to answer questions via a medium, I'm glad to see that's not the case with you, and that you're actually a part of the community.

TonTonClub15 karma

The director of the latest film I did "Short Term 12" encouraged me to do it. He knows how much I love this site and wanted me to participate!

undiscoveredwolf178 karma

Which legend of zelda game is your favorite? I naturally assume you have one.

TonTonClub19 karma

Oh snap. I loved Twilight Princess because of how the Wii Remote was integrated(Crossbow training was a dream). I don't have the Wii U(sad to say) But I drool over the new remote with the map on it. And how you use it as a shield ARE YOU KIDDING

TerminatioN13378 karma

I recently discovered the United States of Tara and REALLY enjoyed it. I was extremely sad to find out there were not more season and almost didn't even want to watch the last episode because I didn't want it to end.

Did you enjoy the show? How did you feel about it ending?

TonTonClub18 karma

I loved the show. Every person involved in the show was my family. It was my first real "break". I was 18, Toni Collette was my idol, and I was actually working. I moved out of my parents house so I could better focus on the job(they lived about an hour outside of LA). It was 3 years of growing, and learning through that show, with those people.

I was upset when it was cancelled. It felt like it wasn't the right time to say goodbye. So much of my identity and time had been put into that show. I was scared I would never work again.

cuthbert198 karma

Odd, but I'm watching Scott Pilgrim right now and happened to see this.

Anyway, I think you're a super talented actress. Loved 21 Jump Street and your episode of The League. Comedy suits you. And your singing ain't bad either.

Question: What's your dream acting job? Any certain TV show, character, co-star, director, etc?

TonTonClub15 karma


I'd love to direct a feature. Eventually!

cap10wow8 karma

Hiya, did you have any musical experience prior to shooting Scott Pilgrim?

TonTonClub16 karma

Yeah. I was signed to Universal a few years before as a songwriter.

phantomdarren8 karma

Brie Larson. I was just informed your boyfriend wants you to stop flirting with fellow Redditors, as beautiful as they all are.

...and I'm going to steal Bowie.

TonTonClub17 karma


jayisme827 karma

How amazing is Toni Collette?

TonTonClub14 karma

That most amazing person on the planet. Super genius and super lovely and just everything you wanna be.

iepartytracks6 karma

I've heard they want to do a 21 Jump Street 2. 22 Jump Street? Given how #1 ends do you think you'll be involved?

TonTonClub25 karma

Somehow, I doubt it. How would that work? Would I be like a 19 year old housewife?

TerminatioN13375 karma

Obligatory "Would you rather fight one horse-sized duck, or a hundred duck-sized horses?" question.

TonTonClub32 karma

I've been anticipating this question all morning.

One horse-sized duck. 400 less hooves to deal with.

popdisaster004 karma


Just stopping by to say that you're fucking awesome, really pretty, and it's awesome how many great movies (and shows) you've already been a part of.

According to IMDB, it looks like you've now been starting to write and direct as well. Are you planning on doing more of that in the future? Perhaps even directing a feature?

TonTonClub7 karma

Hey thanks!

I plan to write and direct more. I did a short that won a jury prize at Sundance last year, and my second is premiering at this upcoming SXSW. I've finished my first draft of a feature, but still doing re writes. I'm also writing an interactive webseries. I hope to do more in that direction as time goes on.

EricT593 karma

You say you make your own films. What kind?

TonTonClub7 karma

I've made two shorts. The first one is a comedy called The Arm. I did it with two friends: Jessie Ennis and Sarah Ramos. It's about texting. The second is called Weighting and I did that with Dustin Bowser. It's a strange drama. It's premiering at SXSW if you're going?

buhdoobadoo3 karma

Hi Brie! Thanks for doing an AMA!

What is something you love and hate about being a celebrity? Anything you typically dislike fans acting around you?

You mentioned you're a Reddit lurker - any favorite subs or do you mostly stick to the main ones?

Gonna be one of those people and say loved you in Scott Pilgrim! I loved Black Sheep and prefer yours to Metric's as well! It really was amazingly perfect. I tried to sing a cover for my boyfriend for Valentines Day and it turned out pathetically awful... haha

TonTonClub16 karma

Hi Buhdoobadoo. Love that song!

I love the fact that my job takes me to strange places and allows me the chance to learn new trades. Right now I'm taking dance lessons and shadowing at the UCLA labs. I'm doing a musical in India where I play a scientist. No other job would give me that opportunity.

There is nothing I really hate about it. Sometimes in highly public situations people get over excited and grabby. But that's okay.

EDIT: Just read the last part. ERMAHGERD I want to hear your version. I'm sure it's awesome!

4aceb14e3 karma

Has there ever been a role you were really sad not to get, or is there any where you are regretting that you declined?

Basically, what awesomeness could have been, but then it didn't work out.

TonTonClub7 karma

There have been roles that I've been sad I didn't get. The one that hurt the most was United States of Tara. I wasn't cast the first time around. They filmed the pilot, picked up the show, and then recast. Synchronicity!

pacleader10013 karma

Brie, I am going to be honest I have never seen anything you have done but everyone tell me you are amazing so but I was wondering why the TonTonClub? Do you just love Hoth's TonTons?

TonTonClub10 karma

I love the Star Warts.

el_butt2 karma

So what is your favorite dinosaur if you have one?

TonTonClub8 karma

Ya know, I'm more into arthropods. Devil's Flower Mantis.

Mc2sand3s2 karma

Have you been able to travel with work? Either filming or doing press? Which country or countries are your favourite? Secondly how does an average hardworking guy like myself end up going for coffee with you?

TonTonClub12 karma

I have! Mostly for music. Through my job I've been to almost every state - some just for a few days, others for months at a time. And Canada. I'm actually leaving for India in a few weeks to shoot a musical. I'll be there for a few months. Should be an adventure!

Well, it depends - are you trying to get me loosened up with coffee to get in my pants? My boyfriend would be bummed. But maybe we could all paint a fence some day.

iamnotfreud2 karma

Hi Brie! I loved you as Envy Adams in Scott Pilgrim!

My question: I read sometime ago that you were going to star in a Bollywood film called 'Basmati Blues'. How has the experience been so far, shooting in India and having the Bollywood experience?

TonTonClub11 karma

I haven't left for India yet. I'm still at home prepping. It's been so exciting and fun. I'm recording the songs tomorrow morning, taking dance lessons, and shadowing at UCLA to better understand what it's like to work in a lab. They are teaching me how to work with bio hazardous materials. I play a scientist in the film.

I'm thinking about blogging during my experience there. It's quite a long time to be away(2.5 months) and I'd like to have a document to remind me.

molrobocop2 karma

Sorry about Rampart. Never saw it, but a certain someone preemptively ruined that film for me and a lot of others.

Question: Um, what's your go to comfort food to make at home?

TonTonClub4 karma

Sorry about that. He didn't know?


AnchezSanchez2 karma

If Brie is not your favourite type of cheese, what is? Mine's Stilton.

TonTonClub4 karma

I love mozzarella, melted.

reiona2 karma

What country do you want to visit the most right now (excluding the ones you've already been in) and why?

Btw, you were awesome as Envy! I especially loved you in the background when Todd is explaining his "cleaning lady" joke. You looking up at the sky in frustration always makes me laugh.

TonTonClub5 karma

Prague! I wanna go to that cool skull cathedral I see on here all the time!

Uncentury2 karma

Hey Brie! I'm a huge fan. Scott Pilgrim is one of my favorite movies and my friend and I used to listen to your version of Black Sheep in the car all the time.

What odd college classes are you taking and what's the oddest you've taken? Speaking of which I'm about to go catch butterflies for one of my classes. Love being a biology major.

Also I'm going to San Francisco this weekend with my boyfriend. Have you been there and if so what are some fun things to do? I've never been out west much less California and I have no idea what to expect but I've been singing that Scott McKenzie song a lot so I feel ready.

TonTonClub3 karma

Right now I'm taking: Genetics and Evolution, World History from 1750, Philosophy, Hollywood Storytelling, The Modern and Post Modern, Know Thyself, Women's Civil Rights, and French.

I've studied Mycology for a few years now. That may seem like the strangest but I'm passionate about it. And a few months ago I took a Mathmatically Thinking class that was very helpful! EDIT: I love Cafe Gratitude, or Tartine food wise. There are some great thrift stores that sell their clothes by the pound.

Charrlee1 karma

Hey Brie - just wanna thank you for being so awesome in the shows/movies I've seen you in and ask what it's like to get all these thinly veiled marriage proposals on here.

Have a good one.

TonTonClub4 karma

It's nice, but I can't consider spending the rest of my lift with someone that has a username like "monkeyballnutty"

snowtard1 karma

Who have you been starstruck by?

TonTonClub10 karma

I'd be intimidated to meet Karl Pilkington.

Constable_Kane1 karma

Good Morning! always a good morning when people I recognize do an ama. Just a few questions:

  1. what is one of your current favorite hobbies?

  2. How do you feel about burritos?

  3. Have you ever been to New Mexico? I have lived here all my life and I usually wonder what most people think of New Mexico if they ever visit.

TonTonClub3 karma

  1. I've been polishing up my French. And learning Greek Philosophy.
  2. LOVE EM.
  3. I was just thinking about New Mexico. I watched a BBC Horizon on Carlsbad Caverns. The "cavers" were scientist at the University of New Mexico. How is it over there?

mannequinsmile1 karma

Hey Brie. Are there any upcoming projects that you'd really like to be involved in? What is your dream role?

Thanks for doing this AMA!

TonTonClub3 karma

I don't have a "dream role." I would love to be in Marjorie Morning star if that was ever made into a film.

Aw man, I never make it into these things in time to ask a question. Now's my chance... Hmm... What's your favorite band/song at the moment? How did you get into acting and how much of it is having fun compared to actually putting a bit of work into it? What was your favorite part of filming 21 Jump Street and Scott Pilgrim? Do you game? That's all I got for now, stay classy San Diego Brie Larson

I'm currently listening to the songs my friend Zach has posted on his site He posts a song from his collection of vinyl every tuesday and thursday. We DJ together from time to time and I'm always blown away by his knowledge and taste. The song that just came on is "Melody Fair" by Bee Gees.

Acting is certainly work, but I have the philosophy that if I'm choosing to be there, I enjoy it. YOLO.

My favorite part of filming Jump Street was when Jonah had a masseuse come to the free way we had closed down to film a massive action car chase and gave him a massage in the Peter Pan costume, on the freeway.

And yes, I have been a serious Nintendo lover my whole life. Tried XBox but 21 is too old to learn how to use two joy sticks at once.

How did you get your break? Did you go to acting school and apply at tons of auditions or did you just get lucky and meet the right people?

I auditioned a lot. Was told no a lot. I'm still told no a lot. Booking United States of Tara boosted my confidence. I worked more after that.

One joke and he just bails. Not the type to grow old with.
