Anna Kendrick Wanted to Play Little Red Riding Hood in 'Into the Woods,' Not Cinderella!

Anna Kendrick stands alongside co-star Meryl Streep at the The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences screening of their film Into the Woods on Tuesday (December 9) in New York City.

The 29-year-old actress recently opened up about originally wanting to play Little Red Riding Hood instead of Cinderella.

“They told me an actual 12-year-old [Lilla Crawford] would play Little Red Riding Hood,” Annd told ET. “In the show it’s a grown woman, so I was like, ‘Put me in! I can do it!’”

She added about the film, “This was a dream come true. When I found out that they were making this into a movie, I just hoped and prayed and wished and wished, and it’s such a gift. I feel forever grateful to [director] Rob Marshall.”
