Brie Larson says filming 'Kong: Skull Island' kept her grounded.

The 'Room' star was jetting back and forth from Vietnam to award shows around the time she took home her first Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role at the Oscars last year and feels the filming kept her humble despite her huge success.

She said: ''I think that's what was so healthy about it - and why I never got super freaked out by the awards season stuff.

''Because I would have these really magical, wild weekends in Los Angeles at an award show - and then I'd be back in Australia or back in Vietnam or back in Hawaii, and covered in dirt, running around, trying to run for my life. It was so awesome, and it kept me so grounded through all of that.''

And the 27-year-old actress thoroughly enjoyed working on 'Kong: Skull Island' despite having to push her mind and body ''to the limit every day''.

Asked if the film was actually fun to make, she added to ''It is really fun. I mean, it doesn't mean that it's not hard. It's both. It's both of those things. You are pushing your mind and your body to the limit every day.

''And we were filming over the course of, I think, five months in three different countries. And so over that time we dealt with 120-degree weather and then freezing cold and hail. And no matter what, it's the same tank top and pants and boots. And through rain, through mud, through desert, whatever it was you just keep going. And that was pretty fun. I mean, it was wild.

''We were actually out in the jungle every day. We shot very little on a sound stage, so we were outside pretty much the whole time.''
