Brie Larson Reveals Porn Inspired 'Scott Pilgrim vs The World' Audition

Brie Larson reveals that thanks to porn, she landed the role of Envy Adams in 2010's Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.

In her latest YouTube video, Brie Larson goes over the "good, the bad and the ugly" of her auditions, revealing the roles she tried out for and obviously didn't get, which also happens to include Iron Man 2 and the first Thor movie in addition to a lot more films and tv shows.

Regarding the porn thing and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Brie Larson says she didn't know anything about the graphic novel or her character but ended up inspired by the women walking the red carpet during the adult film awards.

"Scott Pilgrim... [laughs] was interesting. I was a huge fan of Edgar Wright. Really wanted to be in this movie. Didn't understand what the movie was exactly," explained Larson. "It was based off of a graphic novel that there was only one of them out. So I didn't have enough information to really understand what it was. The pages that I had were a little bit pieces of the script and most of it was redacted, and the only thing that was there was a description that said, 'a husky non-Ramona voice.' I didn't even know who Ramona was. It was like 'I don't know how to not be Ramona but I gotta not be that.'

Larson continued: "This is the truth and it's really crazy. So, I was staying up way too late, flipping through the channels, and I stumbled on the Adult Video Awards, and I was watching the Red Carpet, and I was watching these women with this confidence and this allure, and they were so great at their self-promotion, and I was like 'that's it' [laughing]. That's what I'm going to do... I was cast pretty quick [laughs]. It was bomb."

Larson shows off the audition which landed her the role at the 6:24 mark on YouTube. Check out a screengrabs below.
