Will the real Anna Kendrick butt please stand up?

The Pitch Perfect star says that she did use a body double in her upcoming comedy Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.

"Some of those shots are me and some of them are not me," Kendrick told me while promoting the raunchy flick with co-star Adam DeVine during SXSW.

In one scene, her character's bare butt is seen from behind.

"When you choose a butt double they're like, 'Is there anything you want?' As though they were going to scour the nation for the perfect ass you described and then they showed me three pictures and were like, 'This is the only one that could be you. This is the only one that isn't seven feet tall," Kendrick explained.

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates


The movie is inspired by real-life brothers Mike and Dave Stangle (played by DeVine and Zac Efron), who tried to find acceptable dates for their sister's wedding in Hawaii by placing an ad on Craig's List.

The movie takes things a lot further when Mike and Dave choose two party girls (Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza) who pretend they're nice young professionals so they could snag a free trip to Hawaii.

The Stangle brothers became a viral sensation when their Craig's List ad went viral in 2013. After appearances on shows like Today and Good Morning America, they snagged a book and a movie deal.

In the movie, Kendrick and Plaza first learn of the brothers when they see them on The Wendy Williams Show.

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates is set to be released on July 8.
