The criticism against Brie Larson isn't slowing down, as a body language expert has criticized the Captain Marvel star for her appearance during an interview on the promotional tour for Avengers: Endgame.
Mandy O’Brien said the men interviewed at the time, Don Cheadle and Chris Hemsworth, looked relaxed while Brie Larson was "domineering" by trying to look "stiff" to appear "taller than these gentlemen."
IndieWire reports O'Brien released a video talking about the interview, saying Larson "is really trying to dominate them" and that "in her mind, domination equals acceptance…In reality, submission will get you a lot further in friendship circles than trying to dominate and boss everyone around.”
O'Brien also went on to say Larson was "unprofessional" and her body language showed she was also "insecure," giving Hemsworth "bedroom eyes" and looking at him to "validate her."
Don Cheadle saw the video and refused to remain silent on the criticism of Larson. According to Cheadle, the entire argument by O'Brien was "some of the funniest stuff" he has ever heard. He added Larson was trying to keep her ponytail behind her because her stylist kept trying to fix it, "OVER accommodating" in the process.

This isn't the first time someone has attacked Larson online. She was the target of online harassment when she asked for inclusivity in the media room, and a group of individuals launched an attack on Rotten Tomatoes to drive down the score of her solo movie Captain Marvel. The protests were all for naught as the movie grossed over $1.11 billion worldwide.
