Posted on

One of the benefits of “The Whisper Challenge” is getting actresses like Brie Larson to shout out phrases like “the prosciutto is happiness” or “the parachute of love.”

The Room star joined Jimmy Fallon on Thursday night’s episode of The Tonight Show and did her best to guess the expressions mouthed to her as she wore headphones blasting music.

Having previously challenged both Rebel Wilson and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Fallon silently said phrases like “the pursuit of happiness” and “got my mind on my money and my money on my mind.”

Probably the hardest phrase Larson mouthed to Fallon was “crouching tiger, hidden dragon. The host guessed “round straight sucker eats straights.” Which was…not close at all.
