Pitch Perfect 2 premiered last night, and the latest addition to the Bellas is Chrissie Fit, a Barbara Goleman and FIU grad who plays Florencia "Flo" Fuentes.
The Miami Herald sat down with this self-proclaimed "sequel queen" (she's set to reprise her role as CheeChee in Disney Channel's Teen Beach Movie 2), who had nothing but good things to say about her other castmates.
"Rebel gave me great advice and would write extra jokes for us in her trailer," she said. "Brittany is just so funny and talented." As for Anna Kendrick, Chrissie gushed, "She is literally pitch perfect like the title. Well, she is basically just perfect all around."
While the Hialeah native did admit to having a favorite Italian restaurant in the heart of 49th street, we wanted to find out how Miami this a capella singer actually is. Naturally, we took to Instagram...
Let's get this one thing out of the way: She supports the Miami Heat. DEAD GIVEAWAY.
She goes strawberry picking in Homestead, which is indeed super Miami.
There's no messing with this girl at the domino table.
And don't even think about getting in between her and her dad on the dance floor. SALSA FEVER.
She makes an annual pilgrimage to La Carreta for a batido de mamey.
But she, like, really likes batidos de mamey.
Homegirl is a pastelito connoisseur. She gets mad Miami points for that Materva though.
Her big debut to the world was at her Quinceñera.
Prior to that, she was just a kid at Ben Sheppard Elementary.
She belts out Louis Miguel songs with her mom while stuck in Miami traffic.
And celebrated her birthday at the now defunct Bongos Cuban Cafe.
Hold up though. It's time for a cafecito break....
And... back to our regular programming! Chrissie gets the star treatment at a local Cuban salon.
She also supports Radio Lollipop at the Nicklaus Children's Hospital, which was formerly the Miami Children's Hospital.
Above all else, though, she loves her hometown. #305tilIdie
