At just 27-years-old, actress Anna Kendrick has already accomplished more than what many dream to achieve in their entire careers. Though you may have only heard of her recently, she has been professionally acting since she was 12. While the rest of us were trying to identify newly emerging body parts and figuring out how to french kiss without our noses getting in the way, Kendrick was acting in the Broadway musical High Society — a role earned her a nomination for a Tony Award.
Most teens and tweens first knew Kendrick when she scored the role of Jessica Stanley in the blockbuster film-adaptation of Twilight. From here, Kendrick went on to act in more sophisticated and dramatic roles such as Natalie Keener in the film Up in the Air, for which she was nominated for an Oscar. Since then she dabbled in comedies, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and What to Expect When You’re Expecting.
In 2012, Anna showed the world she could sing in her role as Beca Mitchell in the comedy Pitch Perfect. Earlier this year, her version of the song “Cups,” which was featured in Pitch Perfect, aired on the radio and hit the US Top Ten charts. I know, I know – it’s not fair for one person to have all this talent. She’s beautiful, talented, and one look at her Twitter page will convince you just how down-to-earth and human she actually is. But lucky us we get to enjoy her talents for years to come. Keep an eye out for her upcoming performance in Drinking Buddies, due out August 23rd.
