Anna Kendrick is "pissed."
In a new interview with The Daily Beast, the actress, who is playing Cinderella in the film adaptation of Into the Woods, reveals that she was upset to learn that Jake Gyllenhaal would not be a prince in the movie opening on Christmas Day.
"I know! I was so pissed at Jake, let me tell you," Kendrick says of her former End of Watch co-star. "I texted him and said, 'You’re abandoning me, and I’m never going to forgive you!' "
Last year, it was reported that the Nightcrawler star signed on to share prince duties with Chris Pine – Gyllenhaal was to be Rapunzel’s suitor while Pine lusts after Cinderella – but later pulled out of Rob Marshall’s big screen version to focus on the indie thriller. And, after awhile, Kendrick finally cooled her temper.

"And then I saw the trailer to Nightcrawler and texted him again and said, 'Wow, you inspire me every day,' " she says, adding that "Billy [Magnussen, Gyllenhaal’s replacement in the film] is really fantastic."
Kendrick also opens up about her comically popular Twitter account, which often incites unexpected replies. "I do get crazy shit," she says.
But if she gets unwanted messages then why does she still do it?
"I like Twitter because I’m incredibly long-winded, so being forced into brevity is a good thing for me," Kendrick tells Outin an interview for the magazine's December issue.
Never stop tweeting, Anna! We love it.
Into the Woods hits theaters on Christmas Day and Kendrick can also be seen in Pitch Perfect 2, which will reunite her with the Barden Bellas on May 15, 2015.
