Anna Camp gets really emotional when she thinks about meeting her “soulmate” during “Pitch Perfect”
Today in adorable: Pitch Perfect‘s Anna Camp gets *real* emotional when she thinks about how much the musical series has totally changed her life — across the board, professionally and personally.
That’s because, for starters, Camp landed an absolute gem of a role in a cappella aficionado Aubrey, who’s arguably the most Type A ever, but does learn to loosen up.
"Even just in the first one, that was such a great arc to play, how she was so competitive with the other women in the very beginning of the film," Anna Camp recalled to HelloGiggles of what she loves most about playing her character. "And then, throughout the movie, realizes that she shouldn't be competing against them, but they should be a team and compete together as a team."
Hell yes to that.
No, but seriously, Camp is so passionate about playing Aubrey, she can’t imagine anyone else in the role.
Just as we can’t imagine anyone but her in the role. “My life has changed completely because of these films,” she said. “And I just feel so lucky and honored and I’m so happy that I got to play Aubrey.”
Then, there’s the whole thing about how Pitch Perfect has changed her life on a personal level, too.
She, of course, met her now-husband — Skylar Astin, who plays Jesse in Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2 — through the series. And when Camp looks back on the filmmaking experience, with that in mind, it makes her pretty sentimental.
"It's completely overwhelming and emotional if I really sit down and think about it," she said. "Because I didn't go in planning on meeting a boyfriend or dating anybody. I was so happy to have met my soulmate. And this is something that I will forever be grateful for and thankful for."
Hold on, she’s not done melting our hearts yet: “It’s something that we can show our kids when we have them. You know, like, ‘Hey, look. It’s mom and dad in this crazy movie called Pitch Perfect.’ They’ll probably think that we’re total nerds, but that’s okay.”
Um, that’s more than okay. That’s wonderful and honestly, all this is making us pretty emotional too. But like, in the absolute best way. Now, excuse us while we rewatch Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2 and revel in the amazingness that is Anna Camp and Skylar Astin.
Pitch Perfect 3 — sans Astin — is in theaters now.
