Brie Larson is one of those low-key celebrities that everyone seems to support. You don’t always hear from her, but when you do, it’s always a pleasant surprise. Larson started out as a child actress in Hollywood — she was a six chick in 13 Going On 30 — but got her biggest break in 2015 when she starred in Room. At the age of 26, she won an Oscar for Best Actress for her role, and from there she rose to superstardom. She then starred in major projects, most notably as Captain Marvel in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
With a growing fan base, fans can’t help but take an interest in her personal life, but the actor is usually reserved about her affairs. We know she’s best friends with fellow Hollywood It Girls, Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone. “That [group] saved my life,” Larson told Vanity Fair in 2017. “I’ve been able to talk to them about everything that’s been going on in my life and it’s been with people who have been through this before and are also hilarious. That support and acceptance was everything. I was homeschooled, so I didn’t have friends who had the same interests as me, and I thought it was absolutely incredible.”
As for her love life? We know she was formerly engaged to Phantom Planet singer Alex Greenwald, but they called it off years later. She is reportedly dating Elijah Allan Blitz these days, but not much is known about him aside from occasional red carpet appearances and an Instagram cameo.
Elijah Allan-Blitz is also part of the entertainment industry
While Brie Larson and Elijah Allan-Blitz aren’t the kind of couple who find themselves in tabloids, they’ve apparently been dating for a number of years. According to People, the two were first spotted kissing in Calabasas, Calif. in 2019, about half a year after the “Captain Marvel” star broke up with Alex Greenwald.
Allan-Blitz apparently also works in the entertainment field and is credited in various projects as either an actor, musician or virtual reality director. As an actor he was part of the popular TV series “The Shield” and as a musician he was nominated for a Grand Jury Award for his single “Hey Yo”. But it’s directing where he really thrives, having directed and produced a number of VR projects including Take Every Wave: Laird in VR and Defying the Nazis: The Sharps’ War, according to Allan- Lightning.
In 2020, he collaborated with Larson on The Messy Truth, a virtual reality series that won them both an Emmy.

Brie Larson is halfway to becoming an EGOT, all thanks to the project she worked on with Elijah Allan-Blitz. They created The Messy Truth VR Experience, an original virtual reality series that, according to the site, “puts viewers in the shoes of people from other walks of life, in communities they may not be familiar with.” Larson served as producer, Allan-Blitz as director, and boyfriend Van Jones served as director, according to E! News.
The series won Outstanding Original Interactive Program at the 2020 Creative Arts Emmys, prompting the couple to share their excitement on Instagram. “Oh my god! Thank you!” Larson said, and Allan-Blitz added, “To the television academy, to everyone who has supported this for so long.”
In a separate post, Larson expressed how thrilled she was to have the opportunity to work with her partner on something close to her heart. “Just two professional people who would love your support of our project ‘The Messy Truth’. More importantly, we would appreciate your support to expand our compassion for one another — whatever that looks like to you!” she wrote. We can’t wait to see what else these two have in store!
