Early Life

Brie Larson, with the full name Brianne Sidonie Desaulniers, was born in Sacramento, California, on October 1, 1989.

She is a daughter to Sylvain Desaulniers (father), a Franco-Manitoban, and Heather (mother). Both her parents were homoeopathic chiropractors who operated a practice together.

She has a sister named Milena Desaulniers.

During her childhood, Brie Larson spoke French as her first language. She shared a relatively close bond with her mother, although she suffered from social anxiety, thus was shy in public.

During the summer, she would creatively compose and direct her own home movies with her cousins as the main casts and the ‘filming’ done in her garage.

When she was six, Brie showed interest in becoming an actress, and that same year, she auditioned for a film training program at the prestigious American Conservatory Theater situated in San Francisco, where she was the youngest student admitted.

However, Brie Larson experienced trauma and depression when she was seven at the time her parents divorced.
After officially divorcing, Heather moved to Los Angeles with her two daughters to fulfil Brie Larson‘s acting ambition.

Because her last name was difficult to pronounce, she adopted the stage name Larson, which she got from her Swedish great-grandmother, an American Girl doll named Kirsten Larson.
