Brie Larson is making a statement with her latest Throwback Thursday post!
In honor of her 2013 self, the Room starlet reminisced about her pre-“glam squad” days in the best way possible with an inspirational message.
Sharing about how she used to “cringe” while taking photos, she posted this photo and caption on Instagram:
It shocked me to find this photo because I remember the day so well. I was respected enough to be honored at the Maui Film Festival – but not known enough to have a stylist or “glam squad”. I found this Madewell dress in my closet. The most I knew how to do for grooming was pin half of it back and blink on a few coats of mascara. Before we went to the ceremony I felt flashes of embarrassment – I worried I was too fat, too ugly, too depressingly banal to be honored. I cringed to take photos. But today I see this moment and feel only love for myself. There is nothing wrong with this person. She is honest and beautiful and committed to showing up for this life. I wish I saw myself then as I see myself now. There is no need to waste your time working to be anything other than you. So hey, #tbt – thank you for the chance to honor all the hilarious ways we didn’t know ourselves upon first meeting, and all the exciting new ways we get to know ourselves while we keep living.A photo posted by Brie (@brielarson) on Jul 21, 2016 at 9:29am PDT
Even looking as flawless as she was, it’s hard to believe the 26-year-old had any doubts. But here she is, laying them out for everyone to read.
Her honest message about loving yourself may sound cheesy, but we think Brie really nailed it!
Keep preachin’, girl!
