Brie Larson didn’t just portray Vietnam-era war photographer Mason Weaver in Kong: Skull Island (in theaters nationwide Friday). She also shot the part.
The Oscar-wi
ing actress, 27, packed the Canon AE-1 film camera she’s had since high school and in between scenes chronicled her six-month Kong journey to Australia, Vietnam and Hawaii. On camera for Kong, Larson wielded Weaver’s Leica.
“I started taking pictures to get into Weaver’s mindset, but also because I was in such beautiful locations with such incredible, emotive actors,” says Larson. “It was a great opportunity to capture these moments.”
Months later, Larson developed the film and re-lived Kong.
“They really captured the experience,” says Larson. “And I’m just amazed that they all turned out.”
Here are excerpts from Larson’s photo journey.
