Brie Larson Says Holding Applause for Affleck 'Speaks for Itself'

Larson told Vanity Fair her behavior, or lack thereof, on the Oscars stage was intentional.

During Wednesday's Hollywood premiere of her new film, Kong: Skull Island, 2016 Best Actress winner Brie Larson spoke to Vanity Fair about Casey Affleck's controversial Oscar win.

To recap: Affleck won Best Actor for his performance in Manchester By The Sea, and when Larson presented him his award onstage, she did not clap, but, rather, kept her arms still at her sides.

Prior to his win, Affleck was sued twice for sexual harrassment by two women during the filming of I'm Still Here--both cases were settled in 2010.

"I think that whatever it was that I did onstage kind of spoke for itself," Larson told Vanity Fair. "I've said all that I need to say about that topic."

The actress noteably wore a beautiful red Oscar de la Renta gown to this week's premiere in support of International Women's Day.
