Anna Kendrick Admits People Don't See 'Pitch Perfect' For Sex Appeal

Anna Kendrick is opening up about early wardrobe fittings for Pitch Perfect 3.

The 32-year-old actress dished about turning down risque clothing and how fans aren’t coming to see the film for the sex appeal.

“It’s funny — 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,” she said in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar UK. “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.”

“It’s nice that audiences are interested in seeing a movie of misfits and girls of different shapes and sizes,” Anna added.

Andy Walken is starring in A Christmas Story Live! tonight on Fox in the starring role of Ralphie Parker.

Here’s some fun facts about Andy…

  • 1. Over 350 young kids were considered for the role of Ralphie after Telsey and Company had an online search for the role. They were apparently looking for a “regular kid” to take on the iconic role from the Christmas movie
  • 2. “If I got this role, it would be the greatest, most awesome Christmas present I’ve ever gotten in my life,” Andy said before landing the role. Andy also told producers he was a big fan of the movie when he auditioned.
  • 3. Andy has been interested in acting for a while now. “When I was really young my mom signed me up for a theater camp, where we worked on singing and dancing and performing Peter Pan, and that was when I realized that I wanted to be on stage or on camera all the time,” Andy told Broadway Box.
  • 4. He’s learned a lot through this rehearsal process. “I’ve learned so much from the [veteran actors in the production], they’re absolutely amazing to work with. This is my first musical performance, and I’ve learned how to work hard during long days of rehearsals, and try to do my very best, but still how to be relaxed and have fun and take care of my voice all at the same time,” Andy told Broadway Box about the rehearsals.
  • 5. Andy had such a sweet reaction to learning he landed the role of Ralphie – and it was all caught on video! Watch below…
