Brie Larson on life as a women
Actor Brie Larson says women always live life “on the defence”. She says women need to be careful before interacting with strangers. “I merely smiled at a TSA [Transportation Security Administration] agent and he asked for my phone number. To live life as a woman is to live life on the defence,” Larson tweeted.
The actor received criticism for it, with one person replying, “OH NO! A guy asked for your number. You poor thing. Women be complaining they don’t find a good guy, but complain when dudes ask for their #.” She quickly responded, “You do realise you’re blaming me for a situation I did not ask to be in? A situation that made me uncomfortable?”
Larson said, “I hope you take the time to learn more about the experience of women. It’s real + scary sometimes and people like you can make it better.” The Oscar winner also tweeted her support to women who have been sexually harassed. Larson played the role of a woman who was kept prisoner in a garden shed for seven years and raped at the hands of her captor in the movie Room.
Brie Larson is best known for the 2015 movie, Room
