Brit Marling is the anti-It Girl.
The 27-year-old actress and screenwriter emerged as a Sundance Film Festival breakout this year after starring in two popular low-budget films that she also co-wrote, Another Earth and Sound of My Voice. Both of those movies were acquired by Fox Searchlight and will have theatrical releases; Another Earth on July 22 and Sound of My Voice next year.
New to the Hollywood scene, Marling is a Georgetown University valedictorian who kick-started her acting career by creating roles for herself. Oh, and she’s pretty, too, which seems to befuddle some of the media. Consider this New York Times headline about Marling from last month: “How to Succeed in Hollywood Despite Being Really Beautiful.” Apparently, being attractive and smart is that much of an anomaly in the entertainment industry.
