Anna Kendrick knows that she is small. She knows that she can be cheap, and that she can seem a bit distant, and that she possesses an uneasy relationship with the retail elements of her job as a movie star—the charm thing, the confidence thing, the Woman We Love thing. She knows these things, these supposed deficiencies, and she speaks about them dryly, ironically, without much charge. “I’m probably, at most, likable,” she says. Then, without fingering air quotes or making a bubbly suggestion, she instantly, effortlessly, creates a slant, an angle for what follows. This. She titles the afternoon spent with her “A Woman We Love but Whom We’ve Got Some Issues With.”
She means her.
“Woman We Like a Lot,” I suggest.
“Yes!” she says. “But Who’s Got Some Work to Do on Herself.”
It’s nothing-doing time in Hollywood, 3:30 on a Saturday, and Kendrick lays claim to the calmness of the afternoon, to the cup of tea in front of her in a half-filled coffee shop. She jokes. She refuses any invitation to take herself seriously. She’ll bust her own chops, thank you, and she’ll be the first to point out when and how she thinks she comes up short. She is funny, as followers of @AnnaKendrick47 know, and she likes to have fun. (She once predicted her last words will be “Hold my beer.”) At twenty-nine, in the shank of a career working opposite the Clooneys and Streeps of her profession and with a movie out this month (Pitch Perfect 2) and a few more throughout the year, Kendrick is starting to feel at home. She looks collected, tame even. Kind of a librarian thing. Even as a kid in Portland, Maine, she never really got into trouble. And she wears this hint of a grin when she says it that makes me say C’mon. Then she qualifies.
Anna is gracing the cover of the UK issue of Glamour. The cover and some outtakes from the photoshoot have been added to our gallery.

Have you met our May cover star yet? It’s only the super-talented actress and GLAMOUR girl crush, Anna Kendrick.
In the next issue of GLAMOUR – out soon – the lovely Anna talks Pitch Perfect 2, why she still finds red carpet posing uncomfortable and how ‘gorgeous’ George Clooney helps to keep her grounded…
Despite her style credentials and pin-up status, Anna says still finds the whole red carpet experience awkward: “Every year that goes by, I think that my on-camera smile is going to get easier…And it’s got worse and worse, to the point where I’m giving that Britney Spears terrified smile, where the lips are upturned, but there’s nothing but fear in the eyes…”
Anna graced the cover of Net-A-Porter’s The Edit Magazine back in February. We have added the digital scans and the photoshoot in our gallery. Be sure to head over to Net-A-Porter.com to read the full cover shoot.
On looking forward to maturing in the industry: “I know that things will be more complicated as an older actress, in ways that I can’t anticipate, but I would really enjoy getting to the point where the reason I’m getting roles or not isn’t based on if somebody thinks I’m hot enough. I feel like I’ve always been a character actress, and this is a blip in my career where I’m playing the ingénue. I’ll be a lot more comfortable and get excited when I’m playing women who aren’t supposed to be pretty.”
On Twitter: “I love seeing what people respond to and think is funny; it’s kind of a puzzle. Trying to express yourself in 140 characters can be this little word game. . . Some people play Candy Crush; I try to perfect my tweets.”
George Clooney on Anna: “There’s everything to like about Anna. She’s wildly talented, smart, and great fun to be around. And she’s going to be around for a long time.”

Anna Kendrick will be the first to tell you she’s not really a musician; she just plays one on the big screen. Her humility belies the mezzo-soprano belt that drove the actress’ cover of “Cups” from Pitch Perfect, the 2012 hit movie about a cappella competitions, to No. 6 on the Hot 100. That success has helped anoint the 29-year-old this generation’s Julie Andrews — the go-to belle for every female musical lead, including in Pitch Perfect 2 (out May 15), The Last 5 Years and Into the Woods (both out now). Off-camera, she’s not far removed from her theatrical persona: the acerbic underdog, constantly downplaying her talents — on the musical side, at least: “It’s so striking that I am an amateur among pros.”
Anna is also gracing the cover of Fashion Canada. Scans and some outtakes from the photoshoot have been added to our gallery thanks to Summer, who is the webmaster of Crazy Fangirl.
