Personal Quote:

[on being lazy while filming Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)] I have an older brother and when I told him about the movie he said, "Oh, so you've been preparing for this movie for 24 years. Ha ha ha." Yeah, I'm just being me. I was SO lazy. I had source material and the REAL Stacy Pilgrim and I'm still just playing me. (Laughs.) See more »

Trivia:

Has the unique achievement of appearing in three big screen musicals - Into the Woods (2014), The Last Five Years (2014) and Pitch Perfect 2 (2015) - that are set to be released theatrically within just six months of each other, from December 2014 to May 2015. This is a rare feat, considering the low amount of big screen musicals that are made in Hollywood each year. See more »
