Anna Kendrick Feels She Can Be Weird Around Fans


During a recent interview with The Edit, Anna Kendrick opened up about her relationship with her fans, and mentioned she’s glad she doesn’t have to be “perfect” like Taylor Swift.:

How she acts around fans: “I’d be terrible at being like Taylor Swift, the perfect Miss America version of interacting with fans and making sure they have a good experience. I mean, I don’t want people to meet me and have it fuck up their day, but I’m glad I can say something weird to them and they know that’s just me.”

Her public persona: “I could play Madame Bovary and I’d still end up being dry and cynical. There are times where someone will be like, ‘Do that thing! You know, do your thing!’ I get mildly annoyed by that. But on a greater scale, I’m lucky that’s [my] reputation; when I’m snarky with people, they know that’s just how I communicate.”

Starring in a film she didn’t understand: “I did Scott Pilgrim because I was obsessed with [director] Edgar Wright’s work. On paper, I did not get [the script] at all. I trusted it would be up to the level of work he had created before, and it was. But the entire time we were making it, I had no idea what was going on!”
