On screen, Anna Camp is the girl you love to hate—whether it’s her turn as the havoc-wreaking televangelist Sarah Newlin on True Blood or as the overly stubborn Aubrey Posen on Pitch Perfect. In real life, however, the actress is the girl you love to love, boasting a bubbly personality that is utterly infectious. We caught up with Camp during promotions for the highly anticipated return of the Barden Bellas in Pitch Perfect 2, and after bonding over our shared affinity for the LWD (little white dress), we challenged her to a quick game of 10 Questions. Her responses? Aca-mazing, duh!
1. What is your favorite aca- word?
That’s amazing! I like aca-awesome.
2. What’s your go-to karaoke song?
It’s Lisa Loeb’s “Stay.”
3. What’s your favorite Pitch Perfect memory?
Oh my god, so many. One of the best times, we were shooting the dance sequences so much and our feet were hurting—we had these wedge shoes on. So all the girls held hands, and we stood on our ankles and walked around and started singing and being crazy.
4. Describe your personal style in three words.
Romantic. Fresh. Fun.

5. What’s your best-kept beauty secret?
Wash your face every night before you go to bed, because I did not do that growing up, and that is not a good thing. Never go to sleep with makeup on.
6. A really great bag or really great shoes?
Shoes, for sure.
7. What’s your most memorable fashion moment—good or bad?
I really loved this Peter Pilotto dress that I wore to the MTV Movie Awards. That was one of my favorite things that I’ve ever worn, so I’d say that was my favorite good memory.
8. What’s your number one style staple?
The weird thing is I got asked this awhile ago, and I said a white dress, which is really weird. I think if you a have a beautiful fresh white dress in the spring or summer, you always look chic and you always look clean and sexy. There is something so effortless about a white dress.

9. What song are you obsessed with right now?
I am obsessed with that Alabama Shakes song “Don’t Wanna Fight.” I love them!

10. Can you tell us a funny story?
Yes, I can. I was thinking about this other day, because people were asking if I’ve ever been starstruck by somebody. I was rehearsing a play that we were taking to New York in Los Angeles, and it was years ago when Justin Timberlake was going on tour for one of his first concerts. We were freaking out, because we were in the same space as him, so we’d all be watching and peeking in at him. One day I had to go to the bathroom in the middle of rehearsal, and I walk out to the bathroom and run right into Justin Timberlake, and I can’t speak. I didn’t realize what was going on, and I said, “Oh sorry, I have to go to the bathroom,” and he just looked at me and said, “Cool.” And then I went to the bathroom, and the whole time I was peeing I was like, Why did I say that?
