Brie Larson seems perplexed about being dubbed Hollywood's new "It Girl."

The 26-year-old actress, who co-starred with Amy Schumer in Trainwreck and appears in the new film Room, was asked about how she feels about the nickname in an interview with CBS Sunday Morning.

"What is 'it'?" she asked. "There is no 'it'! And who was 'it' before 'it'? And when does 'it' go away ?When did I get 'it'? Who's gonna take 'it'?"

"It's so weird," she added. "I think it's a really funny term. I'm just a person. I'm not anything!"

Room was released in November and has received rave reviews from most movie critics. Larson plays a woman who is kidnapped by a deranged rapist. Her son is born in captivity and she keeps their circumstances a secret from him for most of his childhood. After he becomes older, she plans their escape. The movie also stars Joan Allen and William H. Macy.

Despite the positive reviews, Larson is not thinking about potential Oscar buzz.

"But isn't it sort of like planning your fantasy wedding, and you don't even have a boyfriend?" she said.
