Brie Larson Opens Up About Unfair Fashion Standards For Women in Hollywood

Brie Larson is opening up about the experience she had during her first photo shoot for a fashion magazine.

The 27-year-old actress explained that she discovered there was an unfair standard for men and women in magazines.

“The first time I got a spread in a fashion magazine there was a one-off piece of clothing from the runway. I asked, ‘Can you only be in magazines if you’re the size of this one piece?’ There was this silence,” she explained.

Brie continued, “Men get custom suits or shirts made to fit, but as women, if you don’t fit into that sample you bump up against an aspect of your career you can never blossom into…We’d all love to get out of this cycle of abuse where our mental weight is based on our body weight.”

    I profited $104,000 last year by doing an on-line job a­n­d I did that by wor­king part-time f­o­r 3 or sometimes more hrs daily. I’m using a business model I found on-line and I am happy that i was able to make so much money on the side. It’s really newbie friendly a­n­d I’m so happy that i found it.

    “cycle of abuse”? this was gets more obnoxious by the minute.

  • Vanessa Graten

    This coming from an actress who’s had a nose job and breast implants and lost heaps of weight to fit into Hollywoods standards. Google her before photos and you’ll see exactly what I mean.
    She needs to get over herself, she’s a self-righteous hypocrite.

    It’s a visual media that sells fantasy. Duh…
    Plenty of jobs that doesn’t care about your looks but you actually need skills for those and pay much less.

  • LolaLola

    no, she’s not. how stupid to call not fitting into clothes for a photoshoot a “cycle of abuse.” she’s an idiot.

  • Dani Wulf

    Maybe she is pregnant, they look real to me. But even if they are implants that does not make her a hypocrite.

  • Cooper

    I find this really hard to believe. They would ask her size to pull the clothes before a shoot, they don’t do before or during. Time is money. Also, they have shown seamstresses before in plenty of fashion shoots who tailor on the go hence why all clothes no matter male or female look tailored.

  • gracia

    That is true. Hollywood que is a bitch with woman. They need to be phisically perfect
