Anna Kendrick had a few things to say about her Into the Woods costars during a game of "Cinder-Tell-A!" with Andy Cohen Tuesday.

The Pitch Perfect 2 star made an appearance on Watch What Happens Live! and played a rapid-fire round of the game — aptly named for her Into the Woods character — with Cohen, dishing on her famous cast-mates.

When asked to rate Meryl Streep, who plays the film's witch, on scale of Meryl to Meryl -— awesome to icy, Kendrick spitted out, "She's not that Meryl. No. I mean, 'cause you think Meryl and you think she's going to be like cold and regal and you have to talk to her about very serious things," Kendrick tried to explain. "She just wants to have a beer and talk about the MTV Movie Awards. She's just kind of a bro. She's not super Meryl, for Meryl."

Next up was a question about what Chris Pine tasted like during their onscreen kiss.

"Cinnamon in a meadow. Dreams," she said, adding that his butt was "taut and covered in blue velvet. In pale blue velvet."

Kendrick said her biggest disappointment came when actor Jake Gyllenhaal, who was slated to play the Prince, quit the musical to work on Nightcrawler.

"I didn't know anybody on the set and it was a real intimidating cast," she said. "I was going to be all alone, I was going to be Sally No Friends. And it's all your fault, [Jake]."

On the other hand, the 29-year-old actress and singer said the nicest surprise was the friendship she developed with actress Emily Blunt, who plays the Baker's wife.

"She's real self-deprecating. She's another one you'd think she'd be like cool and English and icy but she's the kind of gal that who loves a fart joke and I appreciate that," Kendrick said.
