The actress has made a habit of mocking her fashion choices and beauty bloopers.

Oscar winner Brie Larson proved she's just like the rest of us on the red carpet by poking fun at her pimples on Instagram.

The Room star posted a shot of herself taken at the BAM CinemaFest launch over the weekend (25-26Jun16) on the social media site and pointed out her skin wasn't having a great day.

She wrote: "When you're stressing/obsessing over a zit so you put on too much zit cream before bed and wake up to giant dry spot but you gotta get your photo taken anyway."

It's not the first time Brie has beaten the beauty police to a blemish blog - she has made a habit of it.

According to, the actress often turns to Instagram to poke fun at her fashion blunders and pimple problems.

Posting a shot of herself as a teenager dressed up in denim at The Powerpuff Girls Movie premiere in 2003, Brie quipped: "Everything about this outfit makes a LOT of sense. Note: I embellished the jean skirt and blazer with iron-on patches from Hot Topic. World, you're welcome."

And she also dug out a summer shot of herself posing at the Good Boy premiere in 2003, which she posted on Instagram a month ago with the caption: "I don't remember the film 'Good Boy' but I did attend the premiere in flip flops, camo capris and a Von Dutch hat - for that I am forever grateful."

But the best example of her good humour at her own expense came three months ago, when she posted a makeup-free shot of herself walking through an airport, looking tired and dazed.

She added the caption: "How does one look fresh and beautiful after an international flight? I'm asking for a friend."
