For Brie Larson, Captain Marvel was more than just another movie role.

The 30-year-old Oscar winner launched a YouTube channel on Thursday because she's found that the platform "is the place to talk about things that matter."

In her first video, Larson said that she plans to use her channel to create "deep conversations, anti-racist rhetoric [and] inclusive content."

The remainder of the video was set up similarly to show how most talk shows are operating these days, with virtual conversations between the "Room" star and other internet personalities.

“I auditioned for 'Star Wars,' I auditioned for 'Hunger Games,' I auditioned for the 'Terminator' reboot," she recalled. "I actually was thinking about the 'Terminator' reboot today because I got a flat tire and I was like, ‘Oh, the last time I got a flat tire was when I was driving into my audition for 'Terminator,' got a flat tire at the audition and then didn’t get the job.'"

Things turned out alright for the actress after earning an Oscar and appearing in two different billion-dollar movies, and now, a successful YouTube channel earning over 69,000 subscribers on its first day.

“I’m feeling excited, I’m feeling like I’m gonna pee a little bit. I hope that’s a good thing. I’m feeling nervous,” the actress said. “I think that we’re on the train here and we’re going. So in the meanwhile, I’m gonna figure out when I’m looking into the lens who it is that I’m talking to.”
