“It definitely is scary to think of people paying attention to me. I’m not gonna act super-strong when I’ve been kind of freaking out seeing how quickly my numbers on Instagram have been going up since ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ came out … I’ve been sort of like, ‘Oh God, I did not think about that. Um, like why are people paying attention to me?'” Larson said.
“I really just feel the same. I do feel like just a person. And so it’s a weird feeling when people on the outside view you differently,” she added.
“Captain Marvel”, directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, also features Samuel L Jackson, Jude Law, Ben Mendelsohn, Clark Gregg and Gemma Chan.
