The "Pitch Perfect" star plays a terminally ill woman who returns home to Oregon to end her life in the movie, and she has a new hummingbird tattoo to signify how much the project meant to her.
"It just meant something so special to me," she told U.S. chat show "The Talk" on Tuesday, January 15, explaining she was afraid to tell her dad about her ink.
"He's from the south and he always said that a tattoo is a permanent reminder of a temporary feeling, but I talked to him on the phone and he was like, 'I heard a girl got a tattoo of a little bird behind her ear', and I was like, 'Yes dad, that was me'," she explained. "He was like, 'That's cool, as long as it's not a dog on your face or something'. I said, 'Actually that's next, I'm getting (my dog) Rocky on my butt'."
