If I wanted to watch self absorbed physical manifestations of teenage angst with two legs cover popular songs I could do it for free on Youtube. But Universal Pictures decided in order to make money from distributing content that you could already view for free they would add a storyline with some sex appeal and voila, over $100 million in sales worldwide. Of course this upset actress Anna Kendrick who just wanted to deliver wholesome visuals for what is basically the college version of a Kidz Bop album.
In a new interview with Harper’s Bazaar, actress Anna Kendrick claims her Pitch Perfect franchise has succeeded because “audiences are interested in seeing a movie of misfits and girls of different shapes and sizes.”Despite that advancement, Kendrick said there was pressure on her and her co-stars to wear sexier outfits to entice viewers.
“It’s funny — whenever we do the wardrobe fittings I feel like we get notes from the top saying they should be tighter and sexier and show more skin,” she said. “And I’m like, that’s not why people are coming to see the movie. They definitely aren’t showing up because of our sex appeal.”
