There’s a huge fanbase surrounding Beca and Chloe from Pitch Perfect as a couple.
KENDRICK: Yes. I love it, I love it!
What are your thoughts on that?
KENDRICK: I love it! I couldn’t be more excited about it. In the first movie when we were doing the scenes I was like, ‘This is entering sketchy town and I love it, that’s where I live, that’s my home, is in sketchy town’ Then we just kind of leaned into it and in the second one—I don’t know, it’s a weird combination in the second one where there’s moments where you’re like, ‘Oh, come on! That’s a perfect opportunity for a BeChloe moment’ and then there’s stuff where like, ‘Oh, that’s gonna blow those chicks’ minds’ Because some chick are really into it and I’m like, ‘Dope! I love it!’ the fanfiction and all of it.
Are you reading the fanfiction?
KENDRICK: I’m not gonna lie to you, I tried to read one fanfiction because I was like, ‘I have to know’ and I was… maybe I chose the wrong fanfiction to read, but it was so slow. I was expecting it to be like, ‘Oh my God! I can’t believe they’re writing this crazy shit about me and Brittany [Snow]’ but there was a lot of exposition and I was like, ‘This isn’t a [Charles] Dickens novel’ so I gave up on it after that. It’s probably for the best, I probably shouldn’t be reading that.
So basically fans should know that they need to tweet you the ones with the heavy sex, the ones that go really fast, that jump into it.
KENDRICK: Your words, not mine!
KENDRICK: What are you doing to me, what are you doing? Well, it’s weird because in this one there’s also the weird thing where I can’t stop complimenting the commissar, but then the way they edited some of the stuff with Hailee [Steinfeld] I was like, ‘Dude, why does it look like I wanna bone this chick?’ We filmed a perfectly normal scene—unlike the Beca and Chloe scenes in the first movie which were always borderline—Hailee and I filmed this perfectly normal scene and they cut it together with these lingering looks and I was like, ‘Why does it look like I wanna bone this chick?’ First of all, we already got my potential lesbian storyline with Chloe so I feel disloyal, and secondly, Hailee is 17! So I’m a creep.
