  • Thanks to her Oscar-winning performance in "Room," Brie Larson is now the huge international star that she long has deserved to be.

    Born as Brianne Sidonie Desaulniers is an American actress and singer. Born in Sacramento, California, she was home-schooled before she studied acting at the American Conservatory Theater. Later on, Brie began her acting career in television, appearing as a regular on the 2001 sitcom Raising Dad, for which she was nominated for a Young Artist Award.

    Her breakthrough role came with the independent drama Short Term 12 (2013), for which she was received critical acclaim. Further success came in 2015 when she starred in Room, an acclaimed drama based on Emma Donoghue's novel of the same name. She won several awards for her portrayal of a troubled mother in the film, including a BAFTA Award and Golden Globe Award for Best Actress, and just recently, an Academy Award for Best Actress in a leading role.

    Behind the limelight, she is appealing as a person too. If you follow her on Instagram, you probably know this already. If you don't, you should follow her, as her recent posts clearly indicate that she's just like us. Well, sort of.
  • She loves history!

    As seen on the photo, the actress tries on a 100-year-old historic clothing. As captioned, "Was told these clothes are 100 years old. Does anyone out there know what region in Vietnam they are from? What is their story? I can feel the strength and history radiating off of them!
    UPDATE: These were in fact made by the Hmong people. Reading about their history now!"
  • She loves her dog dearly!

    Just like any of us, the actress cares for her pet like it's her own bundle of joy. As seen on the photo, when Brie is away on work, she facetimes her dog - for a proper convo and good night kisses, obviously.
  • Just like us, Brie misspells names of exotic food. As captioned, "Laurel and I are going nuts over Bahn Mi!!!!
    EDIT - I have been informed it is spelled "Banhmi" - Sorry, I'm new here."
  • She LOVES donuts!

    Just like us normals, the Oscars Best Actress gets giddy when seeing donuts. Yum!
  • One of her recent photos, Brie is seen eating a burger while holding her Oscars trophy - while AT the Oscars. Well, we all do get hungry, so it's only fitting to eat after a big Awards night.
  • As captioned, "Friend-made choker paired with a charm of a girl riding a unicorn that I begged my mom to buy me when I was seven." Like us, Brie loves to show-off sentimental things.
  • Just like any of us, Brie likes to post throwback photos from time to time. Check out her singing days!

    "#tbt to when I sang on a BARBIE CASTLE FLOAT with a dancing Barbie and Ken during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Yes. Take it in. Yes."
  • Fangirling over Leonardo DiCaprio. YES.
  • And the beautiful Cate Blanchett.
  • Just like us normals, she wears Crocs.
  • Like most of us who work longs hours in a day, Brie falls asleep amid a plate full of banana pancake with macadamia nut sauce. Well, because "life is hilarious," as she quotes it.
  • Like a handful of us, we dream of having glamorous photoshoots for us to share on Instagram. Because what better way to share these photos than Social Media?
  • She is a highly concentrated breakfast eater - like most of us.
  • When in Vietnam, what better way to explore a new country than to eat its food? Nothing!
  • When in Australia, do as the Australians do. Take a selfie with a kangaroo, of course!
