Anna Kendrick 3

I stole a little snow globe from the set of the first ‘Pitch Perfect’ that I don’t think ever made it on-screen, so it’s not like fans would be tickled by that information, but I still have it.

The music for ‘The Last Five Years’ is like running a 26-mile marathon, and singing Sondheim is like ballroom-dancing up Everest.
Anna Kendrick

‘The Last Five Years,’ we sang almost everything live. When we’re in a convertible on the West Side Highway, there was no point – it’s not going to be usable sound. But any time we were indoors, we were singing live.
Anna Kendrick

I’ve never really gone for the razzle-dazzle types: no quarterbacks, no flashy guys, and no Prince Charmings.

For every person that says, ‘I love your work, and my daughter thinks you’re great, and we watch all your movies,’ and is very kind, there are 10 more that are like, ‘Who are you? What’s your name? Are you on ‘House of Cards’?’
Anna Kendrick

If I took myself too seriously, I would be a mess every day because the world keeps my ego in check.
Anna Kendrick

I feel like what I say on Twitter has actually a lower rate of misinterpretation than what I say on interviews because I’m just kind of rambling on interviews, and I’m just talking, talking and talking.
Anna Kendrick

It’s almost better that Twitter limits me to 140 characters. There’s only so much trouble I can get in.
Anna Kendrick

I’ve never felt like I’ve exactly traded on my looks. When I was a teenager, I was an ultra late bloomer, and my mom would say it was a blessing because it means you never have to wonder if guys are only interested in you because you’ve got boobs.
Anna Kendrick

The movie industry can be tricky and occasionally creepy, and I have this sense that the music industry is just shady as hell. I don’t want to be a part of it.
Anna Kendrick

I am neither such a great songwriter or such a great singer that the world must hear my album. There’s just no point to make.
Anna Kendrick

I’m glad I got to do ‘The Last Five Years’ and ‘Into the Woods,’ which are both shows that I just don’t think I could have the stamina to do them eight times a week. I just have so much respect for the women who do these vocal roles eight times a week. They’re so challenging.
Anna Kendrick

When I have a big enough handbag to carry a little pair of booties with, I always do – those pointy Christian Louboutin heels are just no fun to walk around in.
Anna Kendrick

I never thought that tailoring was something that normal people did; I just thought that it was something that guys who had suits made of Italian silk depended on, and I wish someone had told me what a difference tailoring makes!
Anna Kendrick

I’m not big on lip color, but I like to have a little something.
Anna Kendrick

I’m really into lip cream. I have this one by Hourglass: it’s an oil with this gold-tip applicator, and it’s schmancy-schmancy. When you get to the point that your lips are cracking, the price is worth it.
Anna Kendrick

I find getting my nails done the most tedious thing. I’m such a fidgety person; it’s like torture. Everybody loves massages; I don’t know what my problem is. I feel like I have to talk to the masseuses.
Anna Kendrick

I admit that I look at my social media when I’m killing time, like on a plane and such. It’s just less embarrassing getting caught on Twitter than getting caught playing Candy Crush.
Anna Kendrick

If I’m on set and there’s no other option, I get on a treadmill, but that’s my most hated thing.
Anna Kendrick

I used to exercise an hour every day – no excuses. I live in absolutes: I either exercise every day, or I let myself off the hook. I’m trying to find that balance of working out three or four days a week and sticking to it.
Anna Kendrick

I never have used a trainer. I’m slightly intimidated by the idea of somebody in my face.
Anna Kendrick

I’m not one who can get by on six hours sleep night after night. You can see it on my face and hear it in my voice. When working 14-hour days, I have to go home, go to sleep, and wake up in time for crew call. I hate naps. They throw me off the rest of the day.
Anna Kendrick

When I was 12, I did this show on Broadway called ‘High Society,’ so we moved to New York for the run of that.
Anna Kendrick

People send you stuff if you say you’re interested in something. I have a tonne of body lotion. So I could mention I was interested in, you know, surfing, and some company would send me a surfboard.
Anna Kendrick

There’s a difference between being an actress who can sing and being a Sally Song-and-Dance.
