Anna Kendrick Gets Real About Her Sexuality & Her Kiss With Blake Lively
Anna Kendrick is speaking out about the first women she kissed after high school where “it wasn’t just like, we’re at a party and boys are watching! That horrible performance silliness.” Meaning, it was intimately real.
The actress opened up to PrideSource in a candid interview about her costar Blake Lively, who she stars alongside in A Simple Favor. “I think I haven’t had that emotional love for a lady, which isn’t saying it could never happen to me,” she said.
She added, “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. So, we were the mintiest, freshest two people to have ever kissed in the history of America. … Call Guinness.”
Anna also spoke about the painting of Blake Lively’s vagina, she says, was never on set during the shooting but was made post-production.
“Sometimes it was green screen, and sometimes it was this other painting that was very nice but very Tumblr art,” she said. “It was actually Blake’s idea to have it be a little bit more, um, obscene. Certainly it’s art, but a little more shocking for Stephanie to see. Not so polished, not so pretty, not so coy. I thought that was really brilliant.”
