Anna Kendrick is learning a lot from her director on Pitch Perfect 3, Trish Sie — like how “vagina” can be used as a verb.

The actress took a break from filming the three-quel in Atlanta to chat with Seth Meyers on Late Night in New York on Monday, and she praised the filmmaker, who made a name for herself making OK Go’s famous treadmill music videos.

“It’s really helpful that she comes from the dance world because it’s involved in the movie, but some of her direction has been amazing and I feel like I’m just learning a lot about what body movements are,” Kendrick said. “There was a scene in the first week of shooting, she came in and she was trying to get one of the characters to do a lewd body movement, and she was like, ‘So I think, you know, you’re just over here and just like vagina-ing on the couch.'”

“I didn’t know vagina-ing could be a verb,” Kendrick joked. “But she’s a choreographer. This is her world. I’m just trying — I’m learning a lot.”

Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, Hailee Steinfeld, Chrissie Fit, and the rest of the Bellas are back in Pitch Perfect 3 — even Elizabeth Banks, who directed the second chapter. The gang has been posting behind-the-scenes photos and video from their cinematic reunion on social media.

“On a break, Bellas visited our new sea lion mascots” at the Georgia Aquarium, Wilson wrote on Instagram.

Pitch Perfect 3 hits theaters on Dec. 22. Watch Kendrick on Late Night in the clip above.
