Anna Kendrick opens up about kissing Blake Lively
Anna Kendrick, 33, decided to talk about her sexuality in the interview. She was asked about being attracted to women in a romantic way. "There’s somebody I’m still friends with, and when we met we kissed. This was after high school, and it was the first time I had kissed a girl where it wasn’t just like, we’re at a party and boys are watching! That horrible performance silliness. But I think I haven’t had that emotional love for a lady, which isn’t saying it could never happen to me," she stated.
Kendrick plays Stephanie whose new best friend Emily, played by Lively, disappear and Stephanie wants to find her.
The two characters’ sexualities seem to be quite complicated, Kendrick explained: "I think Emily is a surprise for Stephanie, and she is completely in love with her in a way that she can’t totally understand."
"I do think that Stephanie probably would define herself as straight, except that there is this woman and she really is kind of in love with her and there is a part of her that is attracted to her."
Anna Kendrick claims that "Emily is very comfortable with the fluid aspects of her sexuality, whereas Stephanie has more of an emotional component to it."
She continued "I’m more of an Emily than a Stephanie."
Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively - their kiss
When talking about their kiss, Kendrick said that "Blake and I both feeling like neither of us wanted to be the aggressor in the scene."
"All I’m ever thinking about in (kissing) scenes is, who has gum? Who has a mint? And I think Blake is probably the same because I’ve never experienced a guy, like, searching for a mint and searching for gum."
"It was a fun day," she said.
"I definitely - there’s somebody I’m still friends with, and when we met we kissed."
"This was after high school, and it was the first time I had kissed a girl where it wasn’t just like, we’re at a party and boys are watching! That horrible performance silliness."
"But I think I haven’t had that emotional love for a lady, which isn’t saying it could never happen to me, but I think I’m more of an Emily than a Stephanie," she added.
A lesbian relationship in her films has affected her life before.
Pitch Perfect comedy - lesbian relationship?
Some followers of the Pitch Perfect comedy wanted her character Becca and Brittany Snow’s character Chloe, to be more than friends and Kendrick likes this idea.
"I definitely wanted to have an ending that was a Bechloe ending, and we did shoot one version where Brittany and I tricked everybody into just shooting one that was just the two of us getting together," she said.
"We knew it was a long shot. It meant so much to us that there was this following around their latent relationship and, yeah, I thought it would’ve been really cool if it would have ended up coming to fruition in the end."
"If we ever do a [fourth film], I will fight tooth and nail for it, but I’m not sure it’s gonna happen."
