She played the role of Emily Stewart. She was a series regular in the television show United States of Tara, in which she played the role of Kate Gregson from 2009 to 2011.

Brie Larson was engaged to actor and musician Alex Greenwald for two years. They broke off their engagement in January 2019. A source told People the couple decided to take a break. “They have taken a step back from their engagement for the time being but they remain close,” said the source.

Larson and Greenwald seemed close before the breakup. Larson told Entertainment Tonight at the Screen Actors Guild Awards that Greenwald was a missing piece in her life. “He’s the other half of the equation—how can you explain support? I mean, it goes beyond anything. He’s just my person; he’s my best friend.”

How much money Brie Larson was paid for Captain Marvel

Brie Larson was paid $5 million for her appearance in Captain Marvel according to The Hollywood Reporter. She has committed to a seven-picture movie deal. This salary is a lot higher than the $500,000 Robert Downey Jr. was paid for his first Marvel movie. However, Larson’s paycheck is likely higher for her first Marvel film because she signed on for seven films.

What’s next for Brie Larson

The actress has a few projects in the works. Up next is Avengers: Endgame. After that, she will appear in two other films titled Just Mercy and I’m Thinking of Ending Things.
