Anna Kendrick Covers Manhattan September 2012
The 27-year-old actress looked stylishly chic in a floor-length frock for the John Russo shot front page while dishing about everything from her start in Hollywood to her hopes for the golden years.
Highlights from Miss Kendrick's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Manhattan!
On her start in Tinseltown:
“The first year in Los Angeles I was like, ‘What am I doing? Is this worth it?’ I could work as long as I could pay rent.... I remember working with a girl who told me, ‘Don’t worry about the money—do what you love and the money will be there,’” she recalls. “There’s not really anything you can do to force it.”
On the difference in life now that she's famous:
“People ask how things are different, but to me they don’t really feel that different. Except at my brother’s wedding, when my extended family kept saying they wanted pictures with me—that was strange!”
On her plans for future roles:
“I’m not thinking, ‘In the fall I need to make this kind of movie.’ It’s more, ‘I want to make this recipe for Thanksgiving.’ I’m thinking about decorating my house for Christmas, and whipping out my Martha Stewart crafting crap.”
On where she sees herself at age 80:
“I want to be sharp and funny at 80. I want to be the next Betty White.” On:
