Anna Kendrick Asked Her Mom for Help with Her 'Accountant' Role
Anna Kendrick looks stylish while heading to her Good Morning America appearance on Friday (October 7) in New York City.
The 31-year-old actress was there to promote her new movie The Accountant, which hits theaters on October 14.
During the show, Anna revealed that she asked her mom, Janice, for help preparing for her role in the film, in which she plays an accounting clerk.
“My mom is an accountant and I sent her the script, which is kinda frowned up upon,” Anna shared. “But I sent her the script because I was like, ‘You have to explain all of this to me.’ She’s a math whiz and she’s been working as an accountant for her whole life. So she was explaining all the financial aspects of it because it’s kind of a puzzle.”
“You don’t have to be a math whiz to follow the movie, but since I was saying the lines I figured I should kind of know what they mean,” Anna went on. “And the second I was done I was like, ‘That’s gone forever. Farewell.’”
“[My mom] was also excited because there’s all these jokes about how accountants are boring, and so she was like, ‘This is a sexy accountant movie. There’s intrigue and fights, and it’s very exciting,’” she added.
FYI: Anna is wearing a Dorothee Schumacher blouse and skirt with Stella Luna shoes.
