Anna Kendrick will soon be seen reprising her role as Beca in Pitch Perfect 3, with fans of the movies speculating about what the plot will hold for Beca and Brittany Snow’s character Chloe.
The chemistry between Beca and Chloe is something that was noticed in the first film and capitalised upon in the sequel, so Kendrick is hopeful that this storyline will be explored further in the next instalment.
In an interview with The Advocate to promote her new book Scrappy Little Nobody, Kendrick said
I mean, our characters are pretty much in a lesbian relationship. As far as we’re concerned, they’re secretly in love. We’ve joked that there will be all-out passionate lovemaking in the third movie. Too bad we still need that PG-13 rating.”
If people didn’t think it was cute, we wouldn’t have pushed that chemistry even further in Pitch Perfect 2. The more we have fun with it, the more people seem to like it.”
Despite that, she admitted that she still finds it hard to believe that some people consider her a gay icon.
Oh, man. I’m such a straight, cis, Boringface McGee over here, so I love that that could be even a little true. The idea that I’m resonating with other people who have ever felt like outsiders is the coolest.”
Kendrick was also asked how susceptible she is to girl crushes, after publicly flirting with stars such as Emily Blunt on social media.
It’s funny, isn’t it? I can’t imagine how that manifests itself for straight men with guy crushes, but when girls have girl crushes, I feel like there’s this sort of puppy love that’s hard to explain. It’s not a grown-up attraction, but it’s not purely platonic admiration either.”
Anna also revealed she finds it more of a compliment if a woman admits a girl crush on her than if a man finds her appealing.
It’s flattering. If a guy wants to f**k you, it’s like, congratulations, you have a vagina and a pulse. So if a girl wants to f**k me, I can actually feel pretty good about that.”
