“I don’t know if I’m just tired but I feel like I’m going to cry. It’s been a couple of years of working on this movie,” Larson said. “Carol [Danvers, her character] changed my life and the movie hasn’t even come out yet.”

As for how playing a former airforce pilot changed her, Larson said, “Just, in particular, getting strong, learning how to stand my ground, own myself, and value my voice. Those are things that I learned from her.”

She added, “I’ve been very open about the fact I’m an introvert, I have asthma and I was able to push myself further than I thought possible. I’m excited to share her with the world.”

The actress won an Oscar for her portrayal as a mother in captive in Room and will reprise her role as Captain Marvel in this summer’s Avengers: Endgame.
