Kendrick in ‘Pitch Perfect’

In 2012, Kendrick appeared in Pitch Perfect, a film that would solidify her name in the Hollywood entertainment industry. The singer played a rebellious college freshman Beca Mitchell who joins an A Capella group called the Barden Bellas. Beca soon learns that her modern approach to music differs significantly from the group’s leader’s traditional and reserved approach.

Kendrick’s character auditioned to be part of the Bellas using her real song “When I’m Gone (Cups).” She leads the Bellas to transition from their boring musical approach to a fun and upbeat nature and genre, leading them to victory in the A Capella competitions. She also reprised her role in the second and third Pitch Perfect films.

Anna Kendrick appeared on ‘Sesame Street’

According to Entertainment Weekly Kendrick visited the Muppets on Sesame Street to teach kids about the word ‘absorb.’ She partnered with Elmo and Abby for the ‘Word on The Street’ segment. They were joined by Murray, who was a bit shy to get in the frame. The actor seemed hesitant to get Murray in the frame and then looked a bit too eager and almost looked like she was strangling the Muppet.

Kendrick made light of the situation by saying, “an assault on Murray isn’t the way to win the heart of our Murray.” However, the Pitch Perfect actor managed to get the orange furry supersized monster in the frame right before filming.
