Brie Larson says NO to hit the gym to train for ‘Captain Marvel 2’
All MCU fans must remember that Brie Larson went through intense training to get into shape for ‘Captain Marvel’ that was released in 2019. Like every other Marvel superhero, Larson needed to get jacked for her role as Carol Danvers – an intergalactic fighter pilot. That’s why she headed to the gym to do a bunch of crazy workouts.
Then, why is it that she’s refusing to train for ‘Captain Marvel 2’? Why is she saying ‘No’ to hit the gym? Is something wrong? Continue reading to find out.
Why did Larson cry in the gym?
Wait, what? Did Brie Larson, our very own Captain Marvel, cry at the gym? If you’re wondering that she cried because she was straining under the weight, then you are wrong. During a press conference in Los Angeles, Larson admitted that she has cried at the gym more than once, but it was because she found herself on a path of self-discovery.
“I sobbed in the gym many times. My trainer would be like, ‘Oh, she’s crying again’. It’s very emotional when you’re kind of stirring up something very vulnerable and raw inside of you, and you’re also learning that it’s just for you; there was nothing for me to prove. I wasn’t proving it to other people at the gym. I certainly wasn’t proving it to my trainer, because he was never going to be fully impressed; it’s his job to not be impressed. I [was there at the gym] for myself.”
So, if this isn’t the reason for Larson not hitting the gym, then what is it? Let’s find out quickly!
