"Drunk" Anna Kendrick Talks About Not Being Pretty Enough for Boys in Her High School
"The most common thing that I get is, 'Am I the only one who doesn't think that Anna Kendrick is pretty?' "
Anna Kendrick is often hilariously candid and self-deprecating, and for her recent interview with Marie Claire she did not disappoint. The actress tweeted that she got drunk before her interview with the magazine. So what does drunk Anna Kendrick say in an interview?
Pretty much the same type of things that sober Anna Kendrick says — unless she's drunk 100 percent of the time in interviews. (Maybe that's why she always has empty cups lying around to make sweet, sweet music with.)
The Into the Woods actress talked about people not thinking she's pretty, her short break from acting and of course, her version of Cinderella. Here are a few highlights:
On having her looks scrutinized: "The most common thing that I get is, 'Am I the only one who doesn't think that Anna Kendrick is pretty?' And you're like, 'No, you're not the only one. Arguably, all of the boys in my high school agree with you.'"
On taking a short break: "The whole going-movie-to-movie-to-movie thing, I've been living that way for three years. Like I need to be a person and, you know, maintain relationships."
On her role as Cinderella in Into the Woods: "The character is thoughtful and complicated. You see what happens after she marries the prince, when you start to face problems in seemingly perfect situations. The interesting thing about her is she overthinks things, she's uncertain — we don't see that in most versions. In a lot of ways, I think it's this incredibly brave story. She's neglected and abused her entire life and she finally gets love and it's not the kind of love she was looking for, and she stands up for herself."
