The "Captain Marvel" star also struggles in Ellen's pop culture quiz game, but knows all the members' names of a popular boy band.
It took a while to get there, but we finally know what it is that Brie Larson does know a lot about, thanks to Ellen DeGeneres' balloon-popping pop culture trivia game.
The "Captain Marvel" star was on Ellen's show Tuesday alongside fellow "Avengers" star Scarlett Johansson, where she admitted that she can't remember her first kiss. In fact, she isn't even sure if it happened in her private life or on-camera.
Hilariously, Larson also showed that she doesn't know much about the Kardashians or the Royal family or the other film works of her "Avengers" costars or even (possibly) "Game of Thrones." She doesn't even remember when she and Johansson first met, which left Johansson feeling a bit put out.
Even better, Larson tried to play it off after Johansson realized she didn't know. "You don't remember how we met?" she asked indignantly.
"I do, I thought you didn’t?" Larson tried, but Johansson called her out and asked her point-blank, "How did we meet?"
Larson remembered a New Year's Eve dinner, which totally did happen, but that wasn't the first time they'd met. "We worked together!" Johansson said and then the light bulb went off.
But for everything Larson didn't know or remember, she absolutely knows all five names of the members of former boy band One Direction, and she remembers her first acting gig. And for everything she didn't know, when she can spout out that she kicked off her acting career in a project called "Roadkill Easy-Bake Oven."
Turns out it wasn't a kid's movie with a terrible name, or even a b-horror movie with a terrible name. It was a sketch for Jay Leno with a terrible name, but Larson attacked it with gusto. Ellen didn't have the clip, but we couldn't deprive you of this gem:
"It was quality work," Larson laughed of the skit.
As for that first kiss, the women decided that if Larson doesn't recall it, that must say everything about how it was. Most people remember their first kiss, so it must have been not great, but also not as bad as Johansson described about her own because that would certainly be memorable as well.
Later, during Ellen's balloon-popping game, Larson spent more time yelling at Johansson for not pressing the button to stop the balloon inflating than providing any answers. Luckily, Johansson proved to have plenty of pop culture knowledge, though it was Larson's 1D fandom that unexpectedly saved their bacon on the names of the Royal children.
