Anna Kendrick ‘recently’ experienced ‘psychological abuse’ in relationship

Anna Kendrick describes the “emotional abuse and psychological abuse” she experienced in a previous relationship.

The actress, 37, was “in a situation where I loved and trusted this person more than I trusted myself,” she told People in an interview published Wednesday.

“So if that person tells you that you have a distorted view of reality and that you are impossible and that all the things that you think are nothing to worry about are not going on, your life gets very confusing very quickly” Kendrick continued, refusing to name her ex-boyfriend.

The “Pitch Perfect” star called her recovery the “hardest task” of her life.

Despite finding out that everything she “thought was going on, was in fact going on,” Kendrick’s healing was still “challenging” for her.

“My body still believes it was my fault… even with this concrete starting point for me,” the Oscar nominee explained to the outlet.

Kendrick was drawn to her upcoming movie “Alice, Darling” because of main character Alice’s similar experience with partner Simon, played by Charlie Carrick.

While other relationship abuse films allowed the Emmy nominee to “minimize” her own suffering, “Alice, Darling” felt “distinctive.”[ly]” familiar.

In fact, the “Up in the Air” star’s rep sent her the script because it “spoke to” conversations they’d shared about Kendrick’s ordeal.

However, filming the movie in 2021 wasn’t “traumatic again,” said the author of “Scrappy Little Nobody.” She noted that although her experience was “recently,” she had “many, many months” to prepare for the shoot.
