Anna Camp in Garden & Gun April/May 2014: "I Played a Drug Dealer in the Second Grade"

Posted Saturday March 29, 2014 12:43 PM GMT

With her new comedy-drama "Goodbye to All That" set to hit theaters April 17th, Anna Camp garnered herself a little added exposure by covering the April/May 2014 issue Garden & Gun magazine.

The "Pitch Perfect" star looked absolutely gorgeous in a stunning wedding gown for the Art Streiber-shot spread while opening up about everything from her acting career to her perfectionist traits.

Highlights from Miss Camp's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to visit Garden & Gun!

On her first acting job:
"It was in second grade, at Meadowfield Elementary School in Columbia, South Carolina, in one of those 'dare to keep kids off drugs' plays. I was in a group of kids who were supposed to be pressuring other kids to buy drugs. So, yes, I played a drug dealer in the second grade."

On her personality:
"I think at my core I’m a perfectionist. But I’ve learned over the years to not hold on too tightly and to ease up on myself if I’m not perfect. When I was younger, in college and in New York City, I definitely studied really hard and overprepared for auditions. Now I realize that you do better work when you can let go more."

On her other career aspirations:
"I’d probably be working with dogs, like breeding them. I love dogs so much. I have a puggle named Rocky. He’s an actor. There’s a mini-film about him on YouTube where he plays two parts."

On her future plans:
"I have a part in the final season of 'True Blood.' And I’m working on a pitch right now, a dark comedy, to take to HBO. I’m attached to a couple of movies that are waiting on financing. 'One of them is When We First Met,' a tragic coming-of-age love story set in Berlin. And 'Pitch Perfect 2' is being made and it’s rumored that the whole cast is returning."
