When Pitch Perfect became the second highest-earning musical comedy of all time, no one was more surprised than Anna Kendrick.
The Scrappy Little Nobody author appeared on NBC News' Sunday Today this morning, where she opened up to Willie Geist about her rise from Broadway child actress to full blown movie star. Kendrick had tasted superstardom during the 2010 award season when she earned a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nod for Up in the Air, but it wasn't until Pitch Perfect hit theaters two years later that she realized her status in Hollywood.
"No, not at all," Anna answered when asked if she expected the flick's success. "When I read the script I was so expecting it to be something I'd seen before. I was just hoping a couple nerds would really like it."
