To live life as a woman is to live life on the defence: Larson

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Actor Brie Larson says women always live life "on the defence".

The "Room" star says women need to be careful before interacting with strangers.

"I merely smiled at a TSA agent and he asked for my phone number. To live life as a woman is to live life on the defence," Larson tweeted.

The actress received criticism for the tweet, with one person replying, "OH NO! A guy asked for your number. You poor thing. Women be complaining they don't find a good guy, but complain when dudes ask for their #."

The star quickly responded writing back, "You do realise you're blaming me for a situation I did not ask to be in? A situation that made me uncomfortable?"

Larson continued, "I hope you take the time to learn more about the experience of women. It's real + scary sometimes and people like you can make it better."

The Oscar winner also tweeted her support to all women who have been sexually harassed.

"As always, I stand with the brave survivors of sexual assault and harassment. It's not your fault. I believe you," she tweeted.
