Larson, who has been busy promoting her “Captain Marvel” movie, appeared on Wednesday’s “Good Morning America”, where she was asked about her female heroes.

The actress shared, “Over the years I’ve had this incredible experience of getting to work with legends.”

Larson added of her love for Carrie Fisher, “I wanted to be Princess Leia.”

“I bought a shirt, I was probably 8-years-old, I bought a shirt that was for maybe my size now, thinking that I was going to get to play her at some point.”

Larson has been speaking a lot about her intense workout regime for the eagerly anticipated flick, telling the “GMA” hosts that she spent a lot of time in the gym.
