"I spent months thinking about whether or not I was going to do the film," said Larson...


"...and I realized that it was a chance to tell a story on the largest scale possible. 


"I know it is going to make me lose some of the things I love most about my life, but I think it’s worth it.


"I find that the projects I enjoy signing up to at the moment are with a director who's interested in the script...


"... isn't completely sure what the movie is and isn't concerned about it. 


"He's just interested in going on the journey and discovering it.


"We have to choose every day to be active participants. To wake up in the morning and choose this life and make something of it is an incredible thing. 


"Not many living creatures have that ... 


"We have so many opportunities and options - it's a huge burden, but it's also the most freeing part of our lives..."
