Anna Kendrick has made quite a name for herself after the Twilight movies ended. In fact, she's had quite possibly the best career bounce back from appearing in those films, thanks to such hits as Up in the Air and Pitch Perfect and thanks to her hilarious and adorable personality. Add that to the fact that she's gorgeous and you can imagine my surprise when the July cover of ELLE magazine revealed that Anna Kendrick hasn't been hit on in five years. Wait. What?
"I’ve never felt like I’ve exactly traded on my looks," said Kendrick in her interview with ELLE. "When I was a teenager, I was an ultralate 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. I would have been thrilled if guys were interested in me because of my boobs!"
Listen, Anna Kendrick is a celebrity. She's Anna Kendrick. For those who weren't distracted by the charms of Fat Amy in Pitch Perfect, Kendrick was sour-faced Beca Mitchell learning a darling lesson about letting people in through the power of song. She's aca-awesome. How is it possibly that no one's approached her with a line about getting hurt falling from heaven, let alone that no one's done it in five years? Five years is the time that has passed between now and when Kendrick appeared in Up in the Air and I refuse to believe the last time that Kendrick got hit on was all the way back when she was making faces like this:
Of course, I could be blinded by my own intense love for Anna Kendrick which has only steadily increased since she played Jessica Stanley in the Twilight films.
