Anna Kendrick goes with the flow.

Over the weekend, the 37-year-old was “stuck in an elevator” before heading to the Toronto International Film Festival on Sunday. But instead of panicking or worrying about being late for her event, the “Pitch Perfect” star made the situation bright on social media.

The actress posted a light-hearted video to Instagram of herself and her companions being stuck in a confined space in the elevator. Just before that, Kendrick was on his way to the premiere of her film “Alice, Darling” at Roy Thompson Hall.

“Ah, the classic ‘I’m delayed at this film festival because I had to be rescued from an elevator,'” she wrote in the caption, alongside the hashtag “#TIFF22.”

In the video, Kendrick poked fun at the situation: “That’s why I shouldn’t leave the house without at least one small airplane-sized bottle because you never know when you’re going to get stuck in an elevator.”

She also joked about how she and her crew “have had to ration the limited food supply we have.”

“Just swinging in the elevator… we love it,” the actress added.

Later in the video, firefighters from Toronto Fire Station 331 rushed to the rescue of those trapped, who had to climb a ladder to exit the elevator through the overhead hatch.

“So next time I should take the stairs… it’s all the food I ate last night, I knew it,” Kendrick said after looking up the ladder. “I can’t believe this is happening… are you kidding me?”

The would-be producer ended her video by sharing photos of those who responded and thanked them for their support.

“I’m in love with every single one of you,” the starlet told firefighters. “Thanks, people!”

In the comments, fans expressed their concern at the ordeal but were glad everyone escaped unscathed.

“I get claustrophobic just looking at this!” commented one follower.

“Being stuck in an elevator with Anna Kendrick honestly sounds like a dream come true,” shared another.

“This is hilarious. A way of staying brave and humorous,” added one fan.

“Wow this is real,” wrote another. “Nevertheless great atmosphere!”

Luckily, Kendrick made it to the premiere in time – and stunned fans in a striking yellow mini dress that ended just above her knees.

The strapless dress had a fitted bodice and a full skirt, which she accessorised with yellow strappy heels and dangling gold earrings.

For glam, the “Twilight” alum wore her hair in a slicked-back ponytail while her smoldering eyes were lined with black eyeshadow.

The brunette beauty smiled and waved at fans as she walked the red carpet.

According to the film’s official synopsis, Kendrick plays Alice, who is “trapped in an abusive relationship” and “becomes an unwitting participant in an intervention orchestrated by her two friends.”

In the film, Charlie Carrick plays her boyfriend Simon, which also stars Kaniehtiio Horn and Wunmi Mosaku. The film premiered at TIFF on Sunday evening.
