Prior to realising that her "toxic" ex-boyfriend had emotions for another woman, Anna Kendrick was prepared to start a family with him.
On Monday's episode of the "Armchair Expert" podcast, the 37-year-old actress disclosed that she and the unnamed ex had co-created embryos before their breakup.
"I was with someone; this was someone I lived with, my husband in all but name. This was my person, we had embryos together, she claimed.
And then, somewhere around six years later, I recall telling my brother, when things had just started to sort of go down, "I'm living with a stranger. I have no idea what's going on, etc.
The elephant in the room would always come up, Kendrick writes, and her ex would "scream" at her until she was "curled in a ball, sobbing."
She even related a time when he came to visit her on set and was being quite "weird," which inspired her to ask him what was wrong.
"The worst thing that could have happened was that he started talking about this girl even though I begged him not to mention her name,"
The "Pitch Perfect" actress claims she held herself responsible for the breakup and believed that "if he went, it was basically a validation that it's because I'm impossible, I'm lucky that he's even tolerating my bulls—t."
