Anna Kendrick has spoken candidly about how she’s shooting her upcoming film Alice, darling helped her recover from her own troubled relationship.
The process of filming the thriller, which involves psychological and emotional abuse, was a “cathartic” experience for the actor.
“The film was so personal that there was a point where I was like, ‘Oh, I don’t know if this is too early to do this role,'” the 37-year-old said during an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show.
That Pitch perfect Star told Clarkson Monday (December 19) that the film “discusses the power of friendship in the way you can get through things when you have the right people in your corner.”
“I know that’s how I came out and started my recovery,” Kendrick added.
alice darling directed by Mary Nighy and written by Alanna Francis is due in theaters on January 20, 2023. Kendrick plays the role of Alice, a woman trapped in an emotionally abusive relationship with her boyfriend Simon (played by Charlie Carrick).
said Kendrick people that when she first read the script, she “came out of a personal experience of emotional abuse and psychological abuse.”
“It felt really different because, honestly, I’d seen a lot of movies about abusive or toxic relationships and it didn’t really seem like what was happening to me.”
She said these films would help her “normalize” and “minimize” what was happening to her.
“I thought, ‘Well, if I was in an abusive relationship, it would look like this’.”
