Brie Larson was recently referred to as the new "It" girl, and she dished on the moniker during a recent interview with CBS News.

“What is ‘it'?” she asked. “There is no ‘it'! And who was ‘it’ before ‘it'? And when does ‘it’ go away? When did I get ‘it'? Who’s gonna take ‘it'?”

“I think it’s a really funny term. I’m just a person. I’m not anything!” Brie Larson added.

It was during this past summer that Larson earned the name, while starring alongside Amy Schumer in her film Trainwreck. More recently, however, it's her work in Room that is garnering her lots of attention.

Room stars Brie Larson as a young woman who is kidnapped and kept in a shed for years--along with her 5-year-old son, Jack (played by Jacob Tremblay). Jack was born in captivity and never experienced the outside world.

Brie Larson is flabbergasted that she's hearing Oscar buzz with regard to her role in this film.

“It’s just not even something that your brain can wrap itself around," she says.

It won't be long before everyone knows everything about Brie Larson. She will no doubt be front and center in the media as the Academy Awards draw near.
