Anna Kendrick Opens Up About Surviving ‘Emotional Abuse’: ‘Recovery Was So Challenging’

Anna Kendrick has spoken candidly about her personal experience of surviving “emotional abuse.”

The 37-year-old actor stars in the upcoming drama Alice, darlingas the title character, caught in an emotionally abusive relationship with her boyfriend, Simon (Charlie Carrick).

Speak with persons In a recent interview, Kendrick shared how the film’s script resonated with her in a “personal” way.

“I usually just read a good script and like the people involved and make the film,” she explained. “And it was a really surprising timing when we found that script at that moment in my life.”

“I came from a personal experience of emotional abuse and psychological abuse,” she recalled. “I think my rep sent it to me because he knew what I was dealing with and sent it to me. Because he said, ‘That speaks to everything you’ve spoken to me about.’”

That Pitch perfect star added, “It kind of helped me normalize and minimize what was happening to me because I was like, ‘Well, if I was in an abusive relationship, it would look like this.’

“I’ve been in a situation where I loved and trusted that person more than I did myself. So when that person tells you that you have a distorted sense of reality and that you’re impossible and that everything you’re thinking happened Not As you go along, your life gets very confusing very quickly,” she said of her former relationship.

She continued, “And I was in a situation where I ended up having the unique experience of finding out that everything I thought was happening is actually happening. So I had that kind of springboard for feelings and recovery that a lot of people don’t get.”

While Kendrick declined to name her ex-partner, she said that coming to terms with “what really happened” was “the hardest part of my adult life.”

“My body still thinks it was my fault,” she admitted. “Even with this specific starting point for me to walk out of this relationship and know I wasn’t crazy, it’s amazing how challenging this recovery has been.”

She added that the role “felt incredibly cathartic.”

Directed by Mary Nighty Alice, darling will have its world premiere on September 11th at the Toronto International Film Festival.
