Brie Larson's Adorable TBT Correctly Predicts Her Career, Or One Of Them At Least — PHOTO
Few things are more cringe-inducing than middle school yearbooks. From the style to the quotes to the braces, there's a lot of memories crammed into those pages. But not everybody is letting their yearbooks get dusty on some random shelf. On Instagram, Brie Larson shared her yearbook photo as a #TBT and it's such a full-circle moment. In the section where it asks her "Ambition," she wrote: "Egyptologist, actress." You know what that means? She had a 50 percent success rate in following her dreams. And considering she won the 2016 Academy Award for Best Actress, she totally blew that goal out of the water.
I've got to admit that I had to Google what an Egyptologist is. If you're like me and unsure, it's exactly what it sounds like — someone who studies Egypt and its history, as well as its archaeology. Props to Larson for having such a wide variety of goals. Still, I can't help but chuckle at the randomness of it all. What spurred that professional interest? It's not like it's common for kids to walk around and blurt out that they have big dreams of being an Egyptologist. Regardless, it's never too late to make that dream come true too.
While her passion for acting hasn't changed, this throwback shows that one thing did: her bad attitude. Like a typical middle-schooler, she wrote a snarky remark on the photo above, calling the girl a "foney boloney." Sure, she could've been a lot meaner and in her defense, the girl said she liked wind blowing her hair on the jungle gym. It's amusing that even Larson went through her angsty adolescent phase. She captioned the photo, "Bratty misspelled yearbook frustrations. Isn't it wonderful to grow up? #tbt."
Perhaps making the moment all the more full-circle, it's kind of reminiscent of the role she played in 13 Going on 30. After all, Larson was one of the Six Chicks. Does that mean she was just like that IRL? I sure hope not. And if I had to guess, she wasn't that much of a meanie if her biggest insult was "foney boloney." That sounds like Dr. Seuss' the Cat in the Hat tried his best to be mean, but just couldn't do it.
Regardless, Larson's post is a fun trip down memory lane and shows that if you put in your yearbook, there's a chance your goals will come true. And either way, at least you'll get a laugh when you look back.
