Brie Larson pairs a makeup-free photo with a message of self-love

Everyone's favorite new Oscar winner and resident relatable celebrity, Brie Larson, has had quite the successful year — and she's not forgetting to thank her fans along the way.

The 26 year-old "Room" star took to Instagram to show appreciation for her followers and share two inspiring messages about finding self-love.

On July 21, Larson posted a throwback photo of herself from the 2013 Maui Film Festival. She wrote that she was not yet known enough to have her own "glam squad," so she threw on a simple dress and a coat of mascara. But still, she worried it wasn't good enough.

"I worried I was too fat, too ugly, too depressingly banal to be honored," she wrote in her caption. "But today I see this moment and feel only love for myself. There is nothing wrong with this person. She is honest and beautiful and committed to showing up for this life."

Before posting the photo, she made sure to honor her own support system that brought her to where she is today.

"So hey, #tbt - thank you for the chance to honor all the hilarious ways we didn't know ourselves upon first meeting, and all the exciting new ways we get to know ourselves while we keep living."

But wait — there's more love to go around.

On Tuesday, the starlet posted a beautiful, makeup-free photo of herself looking cozy on the couch, along with another message of gratitude to her fans.

“Woke up this morning thinking about the tidal wave of support I got this weekend ... We should all have the freedom to be our authentic selves without fear or judgment.

"It's scary to chip away at all the hardness we coat ourselves with to protect that perfect little being inside. Yeah, people can be mean, but they can also be so many other wonderful things too. Let's make this place a safe space. No hate and more understanding," she wrote, before including a little personal shoutout to new supporters.

"To the followers that are new: welcome!"

This new wave of support comes at the close of what was a fantastic weekend for Larson. She spent her Saturday at Comic-Con, where it was confirmed she will play the titular role of Captain Marvel in the Marvel's first ever female-led superhero film.

She even posted an adorable Instagram to celebrate landing the monumental gig.

Whoever did this is forever awesome.
