Brie Larson, Before and After

The beauty evolution of the ‘Captain Marvel’ star.

You know you’ve made it in Hollywood when you’re the star of Marvel Studios’ first-ever superhero movie with a solo female lead. That’s what Brie Larson has achieved with Captain Marvel, a box office sensation that surpassed $1 billion in ticket sales worldwide.

But long before she was waging war on aliens—or winning an Oscar and Golden Globe for her role in Room—the 31-year-old was a child actress and teen pop singer. And she has been walking the red carpet since the tender age of 12!

In recent years, Brie has often appeared in our celebrity beauty reports, but she never struck me as an obvious candidate for a Before & After. (Not like Khloé Kardashian or Ellie Goulding, where you just know their features have been altered.)

However, when I learned that she’d been acting for such a long time, I couldn’t resist tracking down her early photos... and I was surprised at what I found!

Let’s take a look at Brie’s beauty evolution from 2002 to the present.
