Anna Kendrick‘s great! She’s funny, she’s talented, she seems really down-to-earth… what’s not to like? Well, as she revealed in a new interview with Marie Claire (during which she was most likely drunk, as she admittedly had just come from a bartending class in Los Angeles), plenty of people think she’s not all that attractive. Which, in Hollywood, is a Big Thing (not that she’s bothered).
Here are some of her thoughts on this and other topics:
On the celebrity hacking scandal this fall: “I’m so infuriated on behalf of those girls. And bummed out that people feel like that’s something they can do.”
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 ambition: “Mostly it’s the fear that the wolves are always at your heels and you’re going to be tossed out into the street. If you grow up middle class, you just always feel like you’ve got to be working, because otherwise you won’t be able to pay the rent.”
Yes, I’d be “bummed out” if… well, if my bum was out and shown to the world because someone hacked my pictures (sorry, I had to do it). Also, I do think Anna Kendrick is really pretty – NOT THAT IT MATTERS IN LIFE, PEOPLE – but I also wonder what in Photoshop hell happened to her cover:
