Last week, a spicy TikTok claimed that actresses Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick were at odds while filming their 2018 thriller, A Simple Favour.
A TikTok account, aptly named Celebrity Memoir Bookclub, shared a vid claiming that “by the end of A Simple Favour, Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick were not speaking. They were basically enemies and their press tours had to be booked separately.”
The TikToker speculates what went down between the pair, pointing out that Blake Lively famously feuded with her Gossip Girl co-star, Leighton Meester, but on the other-hand, Anna Kendrick is notoriously difficult to work with.

Then in a subsequent vid, she revealed that she got the tea about the Blake Lively / Anna Kendrick barney from “someone who worked at the studio.” Interesting.
She went on to reveal that after sharing the vid, she received a DM from someone who claims to have worked at film company Lionsgate who confirmed that “the rumours are true.”
“They HATED each other. The studio even had to have a talk with them about making it look like they liked each other on press tours because it was starting to get obvious.”
They added, “Anna in particular was really competitive with Blake and was constantly asking to make sure she got more promotion than Blake and even made us PHOTOSHOP HER CLEAVAGE in the Simple Favour poster to be as big (or bigger) than Blake’s.”

Now, fans have done some digging to find evidence of the aforementioned tense interviews and bloody hell, they weren’t kidding.
One interview in particular sees Anna Kendrick mention the fact that she worked with Ryan Reynolds, a.k.a. the hubby of Blake Lively, and she says that she once thought Blake was nice, but doesn’t now.
She even goes as far as to tell Blake not to touch her and it could be just playful banter but it seems pretty damn real to me. Just look at their facial expressions and body language.
Awks. Awks. Awks.
Fast-forward to 3:11 – 3:35 for the particularly awks part.
And here’s one where Blake Lively reveals she got blocked by Anna Kendrick on Instagram which is… not ideal.
From that point on, as per the blind item above, the ladies pretty much did their A Simple Favour promo solo. Given that GMA is a bloody huge show, you’d think both ladies would’ve rocked up to promote the show together, but nup, it was just Blake Lively. I wonder why…
