If you thought things were going to slow down for Anna Kendrick after ‘Twilight’ ended, think again! She’s had her busiest year yet with back-to-back projects. Anna dished to Glamour on her projects and even decoded some of her tweets. RELATED: Anna Kendrick reminds us why we love her on ELLE.
Anna’s making the most of her opportunities post-’Twilight,’ although she was doing well even while the franchise was ongoing. She was nominated for an Academy Award while the ‘Twilight’ movies were still coming out! Here are some excerpts from her Glamour interview.
Anna on managing back-to-back projects…
“It’s really fun. It’s like eating Cheerios every morning and then switching to Froot Loops. It’s exciting to eat Froot Loops!”
Anna on her “Dongs All Over the World” Saturday Night Live digital short…
“There was a moment when they worried it was too provocative. But even though it’s silly, there’s a pro-sex, feminist message in it somewhere. Like, if Justin Timberlake gets to say ‘Dick in a Box,’ then we get to say, ‘Dongs All Over the World.’”
Anna on her appearance…
“The thing is, my appearance – that’s never been my moneymaker. I’m fine being small. I’m fine being all the things I am. And I’m happy I’m not supposed to be on the 50 Most Beautiful list all the time, because that would be super f—king stressful.”
Anna on the complications of Hollywood life…
“Sometimes I just want to wear the same outfit for three days in a row. And I kind of can’t.”
Anna Kendrick (@AnnaKendrick47) decodes her tweets for Glamour:
The tweet: “Thought for the day: If I were going to take a naked picture of myself, I would…clean my room first.”
The backstory: “So I go on Reddit and invariably end up clicking on ‘GoneWild’ posts. It’s always girls taking naked pictures in the mirror, and their room behind them is a disaster. If I were a guy, I would not be turned on. I would be like, ‘Make your bed!’”
The tweet: “Someone just looked at my food selection and said, ‘Aw, good for you.’ If she goes missing, I’ve been at home all day.”
The backstory: “You know when you order pasta and somebody says, ‘Good for you’? It’s this passive-aggressive underhanded compliment. I should be secure enough not to let it bother me, but I was like, ‘What the f–k is that supposed to mean?’”
LOL! Anna got honest with Glamour, too, as you can see. You can read her entire interview, as well as see more of her cool photo shoot, in the August issue of Glamour. It hits newsstands TODAY (Katie Holmes is on the cover).
