  • Quotes

    • Anna: (on a cappella singers as it relates to her movie Pitch Perfect (2012)) Yeah, they're incredibly talented. Before Pitch Perfect, I didn't realize how difficult it was. You have to lock in, find your note. You have to know your part inside and out, and then to add choreography on top of it? It's insane.

    • Anna: (on the resurgence of musicals) It's everywhere. There's Glee, and they're bringing back a lot of musical movies. I used to watch a lot of Judy Garland films and musicals growing up, but then it reached a point when those just weren't cool anymore. But suddenly it's all back.

    • Anna: (on being a Jessica Lange fan) I'm a huge fan of Jessica Lange and American Horror Story. I would love to work with her. She's been one of my favorite actresses for a while.

    • Anna: (on the strugles in her early acting career) I've been acting since second grade, and I just remember when I first moved to New York and I was living in Washington Heights with three other actors in this tiny apartment and busting my butt to get to the subway, walking to, like, five auditions in a day.

    • Anna: I went to college at North Carolina School of the Arts and took a lot of singing classes, and it really is so connected to emotions.

    • Anna: (on how her Southern upbringing influenced her) Well, I'm from the South originally. I grew up in South Carolina definitely learning about manners and being proper and having to go to cotillions.

    • Anna: (on her careeer beginning) I started doing regional theater. My first job was 'The Importance of Being Earnest' at Dallas Theater Center

    • Anna: (on her singing) I went to School of the Arts in Winston-Salem, and we had a bunch of singing classes. My first job in New York was an Off-Broadway musical.

    • Anna: (on being from the South) In the South, you don't say exactly what's going on or what's on your mind.

    • Anna: I've been acting since second grade, telling stories, making my parents laugh here and there, so I'm hoping my 'thing' is acting. But I also make a really good bread pudding.

    • Anna: (on having or not singing talent) Ultimately, I don't think you can teach a tone-deaf person how to sing. Some talents you're just born with, unfortunately.

    • Anna: I think everybody wants to be a rock star.

    • Anna: The word 'revelation' is used far too often to describe random things these days...

    • Anna: Don't just be kind to people you want something from. Be kind to everyone. Or at least try.

    • Anna: (on her role Broadway production of Equus) I had a lot of thought; I didn't even know if I was going to do Equus because of the nudity and because of the high profile of it. But you only live once and you have to take those risks because you'll only be a better person or actor because of it.

    • Anna: A character that's surprising, that surprises from scene to scene and show to show, is the best kind of character to play.

    • Anna: I would rather do something that's challenging rather than something that's easy, always.

    • Anna: When I first started doing TV and film, it was a scary place. On stage you can be incredibly free because you can do so much physically and with your voice, because you're trying to reach over 1000 people in a room. And when I got [in front of] the camera, I became a little more constrained because I was worried about not being too big or not being over the top.

    • Anna: (on enjoying doing comedy) Oh, absolutely! It's one of my favorite things to do. I didn't really realize it. I grew up acting since second grade and always watched these old movies and these dramatic scenes and wanted to be a very dramatic actor. But it's just so refreshing to have fun, to truthfully have fun and play with the other actors in a really safe, fun environment where you all want the same goal and trust each other so that it's really easy to be funny.

    • Anna: (on her play Equus) I have so many friends who are like, 'I'm sorry, Anna, but I can't see your show!' [laughs] And if I had a million dollars I would pay for them; I wish I could, because it is something I'm really proud of. I'm incredibly proud of this play and the acting I'm doing in it.

    • Anna: I grew up just really wanting to act, not focusing on math or English or anything at school except drama. My favorite class would probably be recess, then acting after school.

    • Anna: Honestly, I'd rather be home watching the Food Network in my pajamas eating ice cream than going out to clubs.

    • Anna: My father, who went to military school, says if you're early, you're on time; if you're on time you're late and if you're late you're dead.

    • Anna: (on acting) I've always known it was something I had to do. It's very freeing for me. The safest place I feel is onstage.

    • Anna: (on having a shrink to help her with the psychological pressure of doing "Equus") I have a wonderful dresser who I talk to on a daily basis. She's fantastic and I do tip her well at the end of the week. She's kind of my therapist right now.

    • Anna: (on being part of the play Equus) I just know that there are so many actors in New York who are incredibly talented and who are not big stars, and it's an uphill battle for everyone to climb, and I'm very lucky to be in the show.

    • Anna: I've never been one to even walk around the gym naked, but part of me figured if I was ever going to be naked on stage, it's better to do it on Broadway than in some Off-Broadway garage.

    • Anna: I don't want people following me and taking pictures, like with Daniel [Radcliffe]. I enjoy being anonymous. But I want to be successful at what I do.

    • Anna: (on her nude scene in Equus) This is the most vulnerable I've ever been when it comes to acting. You can't hide behind the character. It's very scary that everyone who sees the show will see me naked. I wouldn't do it were it not this play. I wouldn't be naked in a film getting out of a shower.
