Real talent is hard to come by, but Brie Larson has it in spades. If you weren’t looking you might think that her career came out of nowhere; somehow she's practically everywhere these days. Over the course of just a few years she has gone from a moderately familiar silver screen face to pure Hollywood royalty. Beyond that, she's currently poised to potentially win her first Oscar for her amazing performance in Room. If you’ve seen the movie, you already know that – even up against her strong competition – Larson has a fighting chance to take home the gold this year.

However, anyone who knows Brie Larson’s career knows that she did not necessarily pop up overnight. She has paid her dues by portraying a wide variety of characters in a wide variety of films, big and small, over the years. Some of these roles have been funny, while others have been powerfully moving. All of them, however, managed to showcase her incredible talent as an actress. We've taken it upon ourselves to assemble a list of eight roles you have seen Brie Larson in (prior to Room) whether you realized it or not. Now let's get the ball rolling with the first entry on our list...

Trainwreck
The most recent of the roles on this list, and easily one of the most memorable, Brie Larson starred opposite Amy Schumer in this summer’s hit comedy, Trainwreck, as the standup comedians sister. Larson’s character represented a distinct foil to Schumer’s, as she chose a quiet, boring family life away from the potentially negative influence of her father. While she was a wholly different type of person than her sister, there existed an immense sense of history between Larson and Schumer that helped anchor the film. It’s the sort of role that required a delicate balance between comedic timing and overwhelming pathos, and we have to say that we think Brie Larson performed those duties admirably. Aside from that, all we have to say is that her motherhood duties in Trainwreck were a hell of a lot easier than what she went through in Room.
