  • Anna Kendrick got trapped in an elevator while attending the Toronto International Film Festival.

  • Kendrick shared a video of the ordeal on Instagram and also spoke about it in an interview.

  • "It just seemed so immediately comical," the "Twilight" star said of the "absurd" experience.

A group of Canadian firefighters had to rescue Anna Kendrick and her team after they became stuck in an elevator, the "Pitch Perfect" actress recently revealed.

According to Kendrick, she and several others became trapped in the elevator en route to an event at this year's Toronto International Film Festival.

"I got in the wrong elevator at the wrong time," she told People in an interview published Sunday. "I got out. Some lovely Canadian firefighters had me crawl out the top of the hatch. But, yeah, it was, like, seven of us in an elevator just waiting to be rescued by firefighters."

"It was so absurd that it would happen on a film press tour that it just seemed so immediately comical," Kendrick added.

The "Twilight" star also shared video clips of the incident to her Instagram page. In one, Kendrick jokes with the rest of her team that they need to "ration" their "limited food supply." In another clip, the actress holds the camera in front of her face and says, "Just vibing in this elevator."

Later clips show firefighters opening up the top hatch of the elevator and lowering a ladder down. After several members of her team exited through the top, Kendrick herself was helped up the ladder by firefighters and her hairdresser, Craig.

Kendrick's post ends with several photos of her and the firefighters, taken after everyone had been evacuated from the elevator.

The actress was at the festival to promote her new film "Alice Darling," which also stars Wunmi Mosaku, Charlie Carrick, and Kaniehtiio Horn.

Per Deadline, the new thriller "follows an abuse victim as she comes to terms with the end of her relationship."
