Brie Larson has grown from a background character to a lead actress in recent years. From having small bits in TV shows and movies to most recently winning an Oscar for her performance in Room, Larson has risen close to A-list status.
Larson, 27, will also star in this year’s Kong: Skull Island and it was recently announced that she is slated to play Ms. Marvel in the Marvel film Captian Marvel. She will also take on her directorial debut this year with the film Unicorn. Not only is Larson an accomplished actor, but she also is a screenwriter, poet, and musician.
With Brie Larson’s rising stardom and many feats, it’s not shocking that her net worth is only growing…
Brie Larson’s Net Worth as of 2017: $10 Million
In order to see how Larson got her net worth, here’s the timeline of her career from then to now.
2004 – 2009
While her acting credits go back to 1998, she did not have a huge role until the 2004 teen movie Sleepover. However, this film did not have huge success at the box office, barely making back its $10 million dollar budget.
After Sleepover, she had small parts in such movies as Hoot, Rember the Daze, and Greenburg, all of which did not find major success at the box office.
2010 – 2015
The new decade seemed to be a turning point for her career, as well as the start to her rising fame. Larson was able to use her singing and acting talents in the cult classic Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Even though the film only grossed $47.7 million from a $60 million film budget, the film did bring some attention to the young actress with its dedicated following.
From there, Larson took on supporting roles in the successful reboot 21 Jump street and the Joseph Gordon-Levitt film Don Jon. Larson was able to show off her talents as an actor, particularly with her performance in the 2013 indie film Short Term 12. The film was highly praised for its story and Larson’s performance garnered a ton of acclaim.
From there she was in a mix of box office hits such as The Gambler and Trainwreck, while also taking small parts in indie flicks such as Digging for Fire and The Spectacular Now.
2016 – 2017
The 2016 Oscars thrust Larson into the national spotlight for her performance in the 2015 flick Room. While Short Term 12 showed she had the potential, Room proved that Larson was here to stay. Not only did the Oscar win propel her forward, but it gave Room a huge sales bump, with the film grossing $36.3 million out of a $13 million budget.
Next, Larson will play Carol Danvers (aka Captian Marvel) in the Marvel cinematic universe and has already kicked off 2017 by getting top billing in the big-budget film Kong: Skull Island, which has already grossed $185 million in its opening weekend. Larson still has many other projects to come out this year, including the lead role in the Jeannette Walls memoir The Glass Castle.
Larson’s fame is still on the up and up, with many fans waiting to see what the actress will do next. She has proven that there truly is nothing she cannot do, so expect her net worth to grow over time.
