It’s not easy being the best a capella group at Barden University. Thanks to the help of the freshman DJ, Becca, the Barden Bellas rise to the top. Released in 2012, Pitch Perfect tells the story of one girl group on their road to their competition at Lincoln Center. There’s a few bumps along their road to success and, of course, a few iconic covers of popular songs.

The main character of the movie, Becca, is portrayed by singer, actress, and comedian Anna Kendrick. The performer later commented on her co-stars and fellow Bella performers, like Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, and Anna Camp.

The actress shared which of her ‘Pitch Perfect’ co-stars she wants to be serenaded by

Of all the Pitch Perfect characters, there was no one quite like “Fat Amy,” portrayed by Rebel Wilson. This character had a lot of spunk and talent, and the actress behind the Pitch Perfect character is no different. 

She even appeared in one of the Disney Family Sing-Along events, broadcasted during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. It’s actually Rebel Wilson that Anna Kendrick would want to serenade her. 

“Rebel Wilson for sure,” Anna Kendrick said during an interview with the Los Angeles Magazine. “I’ve heard a lot of technically great singing in my life, and there are times when you just want a passionate Australian to throw things like pitch and tone out the window in favor of soul and emotion. It’s not that she’s not a proficient singer, it’s that she doesn’t let that get in the way of the message.”
