Anna Kendrick Shut Down Plans For "Sexier" Outfits In Pitch Perfect 3
Badass Anna Kendrick reveals she wasn't having any of it.
Anna Kendrick has been talking up the third instalment of the uber-popular Pitch Perfect series, and has revealed that there was some pressure from above to get her and her co-stars in "sexier" outfits. Happily, confirmed badass Kendrick wasn't having any of it...
"It's funny," says the star. "Whenever we do the wardrobe fittings, I feel like we get notes from the top saying they should be tighter and sexier and show more skin. And I'm like, 'That's not why people are coming to see the movie.'"
"They definitely aren't showing up because of our sex appeal," continues Kendrick. "It's nice that audiences are interested in seeing a movie of misfits and girls of different shapes and sizes."
The star also had her say on the recent #MeToo movement, making the point that it isn't just "visible" industries like Hollywood where there's work to be done. "I spoke to friends the other day," says Kendrick, "one who works in tech, and one who works in marketing, and I said, 'I'm so glad this is happening,' and I hope it continues to happen in industries that are less visible, that isn't just Hollywood and politics, and that when women report it in any industry, they are believed."
Directed by Trish Sie and co-starring Ruby Rose, Rebel Wilson and Brittany Snow, Pitch Perfect 3 opens in UK cinemas on 20 December.
