The Maine native offered: ‘I’ve been in a situation where I love and trust this person more than I trust myself.

‘So when that person tells you that you have a distorted sense of reality and that you are impossible and that all the things you thought were happening weren’t happening, your life gets very confusing very quickly.’

She also notes that she eventually realized at the end of the relationship that the dysfunction wasn’t her fault.

‘I was in a situation where, in the end, I had the unique experience of knowing that everything I thought was happening was actually happening. So I have a kind of springboard for feeling and recovery that a lot of people don’t get,” she shared.

But finding out what ‘really happened’ with this man was the ‘toughest task of my adult life.’

Kendrick struggles with how he feels he is wrong and how he thinks he is right.

“My body still believes it’s my fault,” he allowed.

‘So even with this concrete stepping point for me, to come out of the relationship knowing that I’m not crazy, it’s been an incredible way of healing to be so challenging.’

Kendrick did not reveal his girlfriend’s name to the publication.

In the past she dated Edgar Wright (2009 to 2010), Jake Gyllenhaal (in 2011), Ben Richardson (from 2014 to 2020) and Bill Hader (from 2020 to 2022).

When he got the script for Anna, Darling – about a woman in an abusive relationship – he hooked up.

“I came out of a personal experience with emotional abuse and psychological abuse,” she said.

She dated him: Star, left, with director Edgar Wright, right, in 2010;  he didn't name the man who gave him a hard time but said it recently

‘I think my representative sent [the script] to me, because he knew what I was getting into and sent it. Because he’s like, “This is talking about everything you talked to me about.”‘

And Anna added: “It felt so different because I’ve, to be honest, seen a lot of movies about abusive or toxic relationships, and it didn’t really look like what happened to me.

‘It kind of helped me normalize and minimize what was happening to me, because I thought, ‘Well, if I was in an abusive relationship, it would look like that.’

And this is the first time he has had so much contact with film characters – including the films Up In The Air (2009), Pitch Perfect (2012) and Trolls (2016) – in which he has played.

Logline for Alice, Darling: ‘A young woman trapped in an abusive relationship becomes an unwitting participant in the intervention of two of her closest friends.’

“Usually, I just read a good script and I like the people involved, and I make the film,” he said.

‘And it was such a shocking time that we came across this script at that time in my life. And in fact, I remember my first Zoom meeting with Mary Nighy, the director, telling her what I was going through.

‘ And I even said to him, ‘This all happened recently. In fact, it happened recently so if the movie was shooting in a month, I probably shouldn’t have done it.’

‘But that’s still a lot, months away. So I’m not in danger of traumatizing myself again. But yes, it must have been a unique experience.’

Filming in Alice, Darling takes place in late 2021.

And the acting in this film feels ‘very cathartic.’

Alice, Darling will be released in the US on September 12.
