Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick has opened up about her take on Hollywood—and a lot of it has to do with her height.
The 28-year-old may be famous for her witty Twitter updates and fondness for expletives, though she definitely isn’t known for towering over other ladies in Hollywood. Kendrick describes herself as “Five-two-ish” in a new interview with Glamour.
The atypical starlet admits that she isn’t one of the most glamorous women in Hollywood, and she is totally okay with that. “The thing is, my appearance—that’s never been my moneymaker,” she said. “I’m fine being small. I’m fine being all the things I am. And I’m happy I’m not supposed to be on the 50 Most Beautiful list all the time, because that would be super f*****g stressful.”
As for the thing that bugs Kendrick the most as a famous young woman, she admits that maintaining style can be a bit of a bummer. “Sometimes I just want to wear the same outfit for three days in a row,” she said. “And I kind of can’t.”
Because Kendrick is so petite, she has gradually learned the do’s and don’ts of dressing for a tiny frame. She wryly described her experiences with celebrity stylists trying to get her to wear things she knows she’s just simply too short to wear. “Every time a stylist tries to put me in, like, a chic pantsuit, I’m like, ‘This isn’t gonna work. It’s going to look like a diaper,’ “ she said. “ ‘I know you think that you can do it; I promise you, you can’t.’ So I appreciate stores that have petites sections.”
Kendrick is currently filming Pitch Perfect 2.
