Pitch Perfect was a massive success – so much so that they’re making a sequel – and Anna Kendrick even found herself with a Billboard hit with her ‘Cups’ cover. She’s also doing the off-Broadway musical The Last Five Years and she’s also appearing in Into the Woods, all of which require her to sing… and she’s sick of it.
From The Wrap:
“I never want to sing again, honestly. It’s hard as f-ck,” the actress, who starred on Broadway as a 12-year-old, admitted to TheWrap at a distributor screening of her film at Lincoln Center on Monday night. “The ‘Pitch Perfect’ [sequel] is going to be fine, ten girls have to be able to sing the songs so it’s going to be fine, but doing ‘The Last Five Years’ and then ‘Into the Woods’ straight away, I was like, I don’t want to have to think about my voice so much. I want to be able to drink beer whenever I want.”
I like Anna, so I’m interested in seeing her in whatever she does, but I guess she’s probably wary of getting boxed in to too many musical roles.
I’m sure she’ll be just fine and get back to her beer drinking soon.
