How Did Anna Camp and Skylar Astin Meet?
Pitch Perfect stars Anna Camp and Skylar Astin announced Friday they were filing for divorce after two years of marriage. The pair met six years ago on the set of the first Pitch Perfect movie. Camp was wrapping up her divorce with actor Michael Mosley at the time.
Astin and Camp quickly became friends on set. Reports say the pair got along immediately. They were introduced by a mutual friend and then worked on the film together. Although, they didn’t play love interests in Pitch Perfect. Beca, the lead, was played by Anna Kendrick. Astin played Kendrick’s love interest, Jesse. Camp played along Kendrick as the uptight and controlling member of their acappella group — the Bellas. The sequel, Pitch Perfect 2 was released in May 2015. After the film stopped rolling, it seems Astin only had eyes for Camp.
How Anna Camp and Skylar Astin met
A source told US Weekly that the Camp and Astin had a great connection and became fast friends, but nothing romantic happened until the divorce with Mosley was finalized. Camp told Glamour magazine in 2014: “He’s just so great, and he’s a Libra too. We didn’t really have a scene together, but he’s such a fun guy. He’s great.”
Apparently, it was Astin who started the romantic relationship. He had fallen for her during those months of filming. Camp told Glamour that although he was currently dating someone else, and she had just finalized her divorce, he asked her on a date. Camp recalled it as: “I remember thinking, well, he’s younger than me. He’s five years younger. He’s 26 and I’m 31, but I was like, you know what? Okay, let’s do it.”
The pair made their first official appearance as a couple during the 3rd Annual 24 Hour Plays presented by Montblanc in Santa Monica back in 2013. A source later revealed that Astin felt he loved Camp from that moment on. Astin told PopSugar in 2016: “I never saw an end of wanting to be in her life…I think that I just can’t imagine my life without her, so there’s nothing I’d rather do than marry her.”
Anna Camp and Skylar Astin’s wedding
Astin and Camp were engaged in January 2016 and married in on September 10, 2016, at a vineyard wedding at Sunstone Winery in Santa Ynez, California. The couple was wed in front of about 100 guests at an outdoor ceremony, with rows and rows of the winery’s grape vines behind them. The decor was pastel pinks, peach, and white, with plenty of gorgeous flowers and roses. They said their vows under a massive canopy of flowers and vine foliage. The reception area was strung with bistro lights, creating a lovely glow, while the live band performed over the dance floor. Camp was overcome with emotion as they read personal vows to each other. Guests included Pitch Perfect’s Rebel Wilson, Elizabeth Banks, and the bridesmaid Brittany Snow.

Unfortunately, after only two years, the couple is calling it quits. Camp and Astin made a joint statement to People: “We can confirm that we have decided to separate, and this decision was made mutually and amicably.” The couple continued, “We kindly ask for privacy as we navigate this transition.”
Although they just made the announcement, the home they shared together was put on the market about a month ago, indicating the couple may have known for several weeks, that this was the end of their marriage. The home is being sold for $2.6 million.
