Brie Larson Accepts Jimmy Fallon’s ‘Tonight Show’ Whisper Challenge (Video)

”The Room“ actress and the late-night host wear noise-canceling headphones while trying to lip-read random phrases

Brie Larson was the latest star to take on one of Jimmy Fallon‘s increasingly creative games on Thursday’s “Tonight Show.”

“The Room” and “United States of Tara” actress played a round of The Whisper Challenge with the late-night host, which involves contestants wearing noise-canceling headphones that blast loud music while trying to guess what their competitor is reading aloud from a card.

The key to the game is having stellar lip-reading skills, which Larson stumbled with at first by translating “The Pursuit of Happiness” as “The Bears are Juicing It” and “Parachute of Love.”

Obi-Wan Kenobi was an easier one to guess, while “Got My Mind on My Money and My Money on My Mind,” turned into a major tongue twister.

Larson will next be seen playing a far more serious role in Lenny Abrahamson film “The Room, starring as a woman who is abducted and imprisoned in a garden shed for years as she tries to protect and raise the 5-year-old son (Jacob Tremblay) fathered by her captor.

“The Tonight Show” airs at 11:35 p.m. on NBC.
