On September 12, Anna Kendrick posted a series of black and white photos on her Instagram celebrating her friendship with Rebel Wilson. Kendrick does not often post on the social media site (her post prior to the one with Wilson went up 10 weeks ago), so this new upload was notable. It seems the two are close friends, with Kendrick asking how she got “so lucky” to be friends with Wilson. “Ten years ago, in the bottom of a freezing, empty pool, this girl got stuck with me,” she captioned the set of photos.
Kendrick appeared to be referencing a time on the set of “Pitch Perfect,” specifically the “Riff-Off,” where the Bellas competed against some other a cappella groups from Barden University in the bottom of an empty pool. Interestingly, the song the Bellas end up finishing the riff-off with was Wilson’s favorite of the franchise, according to an interview with BackstageOL. So, it seems like Kendrick’s and Wilson’s first meeting was memorable for both women.
Kendrick posted a series of three photos, one of which looked to be from that first day on the set of “Pitch Perfect” and two others that appeared to be recent snaps from the last time they got together. In fact, Wilson and Kendrick recently celebrated a special occasion.
