Brie Larson Speaks About Her Evident Reaction To Casey Affleck’s Oscar Win
It’s been a few weeks since the Oscar Awards aired and the whole world saw the biggest live television mix up in history. While that may be the most memorable part of the night for most people, it was also a night celebrating films and celebrating the people who are apart of the process. Casey Affleck was honored with the Oscar Award for Actor in a Leading Role for his performance in the dramedy Manchester by the Sea. While most of the room erupted in applause for the winner, Brie Larson, who was the presenter and announced Affleck as the winner looked less than impressed. The actress did not applaud for the actor as she stood on the side of the stage when he began his speech.
Many articles have come up in the past couple of months leading up to the Oscars of alleged sexual harassment on Affleck’s part by two women when they worked with Affleck back in 2010 on the film 'I’m Still Here'. Although the suit has been settled out of court since then, it seems to have still struck a chord in Larson regardless. The actress won an Oscar just a year earlier for her portrayal of a sexual assault survivor in Room and has been an open speaker for victims. When asked about her reaction she revealed to Vanity Fair.
"I think that whatever it was that I did onstage kind of spoke for itself. I've said all that I need to say about that topic."
