When the queen met the superhero: Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach recently interviewed Captain Marvel’s Brie Larson, whom you could say is the new queen of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the interview released this International Women’s Month, Brie talked about the importance of “female representation and showing female complexity onscreen.”
Pia asked Brie about that viral video of her pushing a jeep for a full minute as part of her Captain Marvel workout. “That was a big moment for me. I didn’t know how to do a push-up before this, and by the end of it, I was able to do weighted push-ups, pull-ups, things that I never thought I would be able to do in my life.”
At the Philippine premiere of the movie, Pia couldn’t help but gush over meeting Brie. “She was very pleasant. She was nice. She even laughed at my silly joke. It was really fun,” she said, according to ABS-CBN News.
Pia talked about a moment with Brie that made her feel “really kilig.” After their interview, “she was about to leave, but she came back to me and she shook my hand and said, ‘Thank you for everything that you do.’ Sobrang kinilig ako. I really feel like I met a superhero.”
Pia said, “If you ask her about work, seryoso siya. If you ask her about the training that she went through, you can see. When you talk to her about women’s empowerment, she’s very passionate about it as well. Those are the things I think are very dear to her heart.”
