Captain Marvel earned a pretty major milestone, as it crossed the $1 billion mark at the box office. And now the movie’s lead actress, Brie Larson opened up about how she is using the power she accrued from the massively successful film to change the Hollywood system.
In an interview with Vanity Fair the 29-year-old said, “I’m grateful to have broken this glass ceiling. I don’t know why it was so hard for people to believe it could happen… I understand film history. This weird idea that women can’t open movies is bogus,” said the Room actress, adding, “The reason why I was able to get the payment that I got from the movie (Captain Marvel), a lot of it had to do with the women who came before me… Don’t do it for you. Do it for the next woman.”
