Brie Larson on her Hollywood actress friends: They 'saved my life'

The actress opened up about her friends Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence.

— -- When dealing with the pressure and scrutiny that comes with fame, friends who have been through it themselves can help.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson talks about the friendships she's cultivated in Hollywood.

Larson said that while promoting her 2015 film, "Room" she "felt lonely and bad sometimes."

"I was embarrassed to keep talking about myself," she said.

"Emma wrote this beautiful email out of nowhere, and then one day Jen [Lawrence] sent me a text message after she saw 'Room,' and we started talking," Larson said.

"That [group of friends] saved my life," Larson, 27, said. "I was able to talk with them about everything that was going on in my life, and it was with people who had been through it before and are also hilarious. That support and acceptance was everything. I was home-schooled, so I didn't have friends that had the same interests as me, and I found it to be absolutely incredible."

"You know what's better than winning?" the caption reads. "Watching your friends win."

Larson won her own Oscar last year for her performance in "Room," and she said Stone was there for her during that time as well, giving her gifts and a good luck card before the ceremony.

"It's those little things," Larson said.
