The 29-year-old Pitch Perfect starlet explains that most movies insist on casting all the male leads before they can consider females for the cast. "There's [a film I'm considering] now where I have to wait for all the males roles to be cast before I can even become a part of the conversation. Part of me gets that," she concedes. "[But] part of me is like, 'What the f**k?'"
"'You have to cast for females based on who's cast as males?' To me, the only explanation is that there are so many f**king talented girls, and from a business standpoint it's easier to find women to match the men. I totally stand by the belief that there are 10 unbelievably talented women for every role," she continues.
But just because there's tons of talented females in the industry doesn't mean everyone's super competitive and catty, Anna says. "If anything, it bonds you because we're all dealing with the same problem," she muses.
See Anna in Pitch Perfect 2, a total girl power flick which her cast mate Elizabeth Banks both directed and produced, on May 14!
