Anna Kendrick Opens Up About Her Past Relationship: Anna Kendrick said this man was “for all intents and purposes, my husband” during their relationship.
The “Pitch Perfect” star discussed a previous romantic involvement with a person she claimed to have lived with during an interview with Monica Padman and Dax Shepard for their podcast, “Armchair Expert.”
This was my person. We had embryos together, Kendrick claimed. Then, somewhere about six years later, I recall telling my brother, when things had just started to sort of go down, “I’m living with a stranger. I have no idea what’s going on, etc.
The actress most recently appeared in the movie “Alice, Darling,” about a woman forced into an abusive marriage.
She admitted to the hosts of the podcast that things in her relationship had gotten so bad—she said he would “scream” at her until she was “curled in a ball sobbing”—that she started to lean toward theories like her boyfriend having a brain tumor as a possible explanation for the behavior.
“That gave me a moment of relief,” Kendrick said.
It made it possible for her to avoid thinking that she had “done something so bad that I deserve to be living with this stranger who scares the s**t out of me,” as she put it.
“It was just like, ‘I don’t know who this person is,’” Kendrick said. “It was terrifying.”
According to Kendrick, after learning that her boyfriend had affection for someone else, she sought to improve their relationship and herself by going to counseling, joining Al-Anon, and disclosing to her agents that she was experiencing mental health issues and needed time off.
“I started seeing two therapists a week, and I started trying to learn to meditate, and I got into Al-Anon, and all of these things ended up being wonderful things for me in the long run,” she said. “But initially went into them thinking, ‘Tell me how to stop being crazy. Tell me how to stop feeling anything.’”
Since then, the relationship has dissolved.
