Anna Camp is keeping busy in New York City these days. Not only is the the L.A.-based actress is the middle of starring in the off-Broadway play Verite, but she’s bracing herself for the worldwide release of Pitch Perfect 2.
Considering her character Aubrey Posen graduated at the end of Pitch Perfect, Camp told Backstage BFFEllie Lee that this time around you’d see working-girl (instead of neurotic college senior) Aubrey try to keep her lunch down. Additionally, don’t expect Camp to be in any scenes with IRL boyfriend Skylar Astin, who plays Anna Kendrick‘s love interest in the film.
Camp wasn’t shy to admit that while watching each other get intimate with other actors isn’t the best thing in the world, they’re completely supportive of each other. After all, Astin does have to watch Camp kiss Ebon Moss-Bachrach on stage every night. You’ll recognize her Verite co-star as Marnie’s (Allison Williams) bandmate/boyfriend on HBO’s Girls — although the actress says she’s waiting for the play to end to watch season three. Find out exactly why in the clip below.

While promoting her new film Danny Collins, actress Jennifer Garner says she’s enjoyed being at home with her three kids – daughters Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and son Samuel, 3 – while husband Ben Affleck has worked on various projects. That said, it’s time for mama to return to work.
“I’ve been home for a long time,” Garner told Us Weekly. “It’s my turn and I’m going to go to work this spring. I think I’ll work the spring and summer, maybe the fall too, as long as some of it’s at home. I don’t think my deals are done yet so I can’t say, but yeah, I’m about to go to work.”
Garner, who earned critical acclaim for her starring role in the early 2000s series Alias, has starred in Dallas Buyers Club alongside Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto, as well as Draft Day, Men, Women & Children, and Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.
“I really choose by what I like,” Garner said. “I thought Alexander was a super smart script. Just [costar] Steve [Carell] alone would have been enough, gosh I love working with that guy, he’s just the best.”
“I have had the best luck with costars, I’m just saying. And I’ve only married a couple of them,” Garner joked about Affleck, whom she met on the set of the movie Pearl Harbor, and first husband Scott Foley, whom she met on the TV series Felicity. “But yeah that was fun for me. My kids really got a lot of juice out of the fact that I was in that movie. I heard about a little kid saying to their mom the other day at school. The mom said something about Ben and the little kid said no Sera’s mom is a movie star, and her dad just comes along. I was like that’s awesome, because she saw Alexander.”
While they’ve both got successful Hollywood careers, it sounds like Ben and Jen have got the perfect balance at home as well.
“Ben is super busy and I’m super happy for him,” Garner said. “I chose to stay home this year and just said, ‘Go for it babe. Do it all. Do Gone Girl, do Batman, do The Accountant. Do everything.’ I want that for him and I’m happy for him. And he says the same to me. Except that he’s really busy. But he understands that when I really have to do it, we figure it out.”
She added: “You’d be amazed how we figure it out. I’ve never been away for more than I think four days. Maybe once I was gone for my kids for five days… I sit down at the beginning of the movie and say to the people making the schedule, ‘Let’s look at this.’ Then I figure out where I’m going to take the kid and when I can get home.”
