Anna Kendrick Says Guys Didn't Find Her Pretty in High School

Anna Kendrick Says Guys Didn't Find Her Pretty in High School

Anna Kendrick sits in the sand for her photo shoot for the cover of Marie Claire‘s December 2014 issue, on newsstands November 18.

The 29-year-old Into the Woods actress tweeted that “Marie Claire got me drunk for my interview #true #DidntFightIt.” Find out what she had to share here:

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 her role as Cinderella in Into the Woods: “The character is thoughtful and complicated. You see what happens after she marries the prince, when you start to face problems in seemingly perfect situations. The interesting thing about her is she overthinks things, she’s uncertain – we don’t see that in most versions. In a lot of ways, I think it’s this incredibly brave story. She’s neglected and abused her entire life, she finally gets love and it’s not the kind of love she was looking for, and she stands up for herself.”

On taking a short break: “The whole going-movie-to-movie-to-movie thing, I’ve been living that way for three years. Like I need to be a person and, you know, maintain relationships.”

    bollocks did she go to a school for the blind or something.

    She’s not traditionally pretty. She was on Broadway as a kid and returned to school in Maine during the 9th or 10th grade. Pictures are out there of her at that age and while I think she’s a super fox now, she wasn’t then. Also, if you go on twitter you can see comment after comment from people saying exactly what she pointed out in the article, “Am I the only one that thinks Anna Kendrick is ugly?” Show business isn’t exactly known for making women feel great about themselves.
