Brittany Snow Injured Her Back Twerking For ‘Pitch Perfect 2’

One of the stars in the hotly anticipated sequel to the cult hit Pitch Perfect, Brittany Snow, says she had to learn to twerk for one of the dance sequences in the film. Despite months of practicing and dedication, Snow never got the hang of twerking and actually hurt her back trying to pull off the tricky move.

Brittany Snow admitted her dancing failures in the May issue of Cosmopolitan. After appearing on the cover of the magazine, Snow gave an interview revealing the embarrassing truth behind Pitch Perfect 2.

“One of my favorite scenes to do in Pitch Perfect 2 was this number where we really get dirty with our dancing,” Brittany Snow explained. “We had a month of rehearsals learning how to do things I’m just not cool enough to do in my real life.”

According to People, Brittany Snow’s primary problem with the dance rehearsals was the twerking, which is an infamously difficult move to execute. It involves squatting and thrusting the hips rapidly to the beat of the music, which is virtually impossible for some people to do. Brittany Snow is apparently one of many who just doesn’t have the twerking talent.

“I’m a really bad twerker – I still haven’t figured out how to do it. I actually hurt my back one day. I woke up the next morning and my back was completely tweaked out … from twerking.”

Her failures at twerking aren’t the only private details Brittany Snow revealed about herself in the interview. She also spilled the beans about her romance with Teen Wolf star Tyler Hoechlin. According to E! Online, Brittany is very happy with Tyler but admits that she doesn’t like to talk about her love life very often.

“Sometimes if you give too much away, it loses its magic, as cheesy as that sounds,” Brittany Snow said. “We like to keep our moments to ourselves, which is why we don’t do much social media. We’re not hiding anything. We’re not not wanting people to know. Social media, for me, is about interacting with people who follow my career. I don’t think my relationship has anything to do with my career. So we just keep it simple, try not to think about it that much, and just be us.”

You can see Brittany Snow alongside stars Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson in Pitch Perfect 2 when it hits theaters on May 15.
