Did Brie Larson just let something slip? The actress posted a video of herself taking quizzes on her YouTube channel, and one answer left the internet shocked.
"You're 10 years old, how do you spend an hour of recess?" Larson asked herself in the clip. "Searching WikiHow on the library computer for 'how do you know if you're gay?'" she answered.
It should be noted that the question was what she likely did and not what she definitely did when she was 10 years old. Larson hasn't made any comments about her sexuality, but social media still went wild.
"brie Larson said I respect the straight community but it ain't me," one fan joked.
Another fan showed Larson as Captain Marvel scrolling through the internet for answers.
"BRIE LARSON GAY? A win for the lesbians!!!!" another person exclaimed.
One user pointed out that there's more to it than just being gay or straight, while others thought that fans should refrain from making any assumptions about Larson's sexuality.
This isn’t the first time there has been speculation about whether or not Larson is part of the LGBTQ community.
At ACE Comic Con Midwest 2019, Larson and Tessa Thompson were asked if there would be any lesbians in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
"How do I top lesbians?" Larson asked. "I'm sure the lesbians could show you," Thompson replied, which also sent social media into a frenzy.
The pair have also shown support for many fans' desire for Captain Marvel and Thompson’s Valkyrie to get together. "We're here to ship, ya'll!" Larson said. "We can dig into it; I'm just telling you we're shipping."
"If it becomes canon, that's cool, too," Thompson said.
Whether Larson was just questioning her sexuality or simply just made a comment, she has been an ally to the LGBTQ community and has previously expressed a desire for more representation in films.
"I’m happy to be on the forefront of the normalisation of this type of content and to prove once again that representation matters. Diverse storytelling matters, the female experience matters, and these are markers,” Larson told Variety.
"That breaks my heart to hear that, because there’s no reason,” Larson replied when Marc Malkin said he never expected to see a gay superhero on screen. "I don’t understand how you could think that a certain type of person isn’t allowed to be a superhero. So to me it’s like, we gotta move faster. But I’m always wanting to move faster with this stuff."
On her YouTube channel, Larson also turned some of her Instagram comments into short songs, including a comment that says, "I'm gay."
