Twilight Saga actress Anna Kendrick—and, lest we forget, Academy Award nomineeis putting her Broadway chops to good use as the reluctant new lead of an a capella group in tonight’s release, Pitch Perfect. (It’s like Glee goes to college for the big screen.) Her first order of business? Covering Bruno Mars’s “Just the Way You Are.” What’s especially fun about this rendition is that Kendrick’s R&B-loving character, Beca, mashes the Mars tune up with Nelly’s “Just a Dream.” We’re obsessed—who would have thought the two would go together so beautifully? Listen to the remix above, and catch Pitch Perfect in select theaters starting today, and nationally next Friday, October 5th.
