Brie Larson was "broke a dozen times" before landing the lead role in 'Captain Marvel'.
The 29-year-old actress is set to take on the titular superheroine in the upcoming Marvel movie, and has said the mammoth role came after she had found in dire financial straits several times throughout her career.
Brie admitted she once "had a hard time getting work again" after a television show she was on got cancelled, and was still "stressing about money" as recently as 2015, before she starred in "Room", which won her a Best Actress Oscar.
Speaking in a clip from her upcoming interview with Willie Geist for 'Sunday Today' - which will air on Sunday - she said: "I've been broke a dozen times. When you look at it, it kind of makes sense, or my IMDb maybe looks consistent, but really there's large gaps of time with three auditions a day - still. Even before 'Room' came out, I was stressing about money. It's not that long ago at all!"
Brie's comments come after she recently revealed playing Captain Marvel "changed her life", as she learned how to "stand [her] ground" and "value her voice" through her time in the role.
