Anna Kendrick is a well-known actress who was born August 9th, 1985. She has always loved acting, and was excited about it. Her parents supported this, and even put her on the bus at the age of 10 with an older sibling so she could go to New York and audition for Broadway. They rode this bus from Portland Oregon. This sibling is Michael Cooke, and he is an actor.
She was accepted on Broadway and her first play was High Society when she was 12 years old. Up in the Air was her role in 2002 that got her noticed. She did a variety of movies that weren’t well known for a few years. Kendrick had a secondary role in Twilight in 2008 and the follow up Eclipse in 2009 that brought her plenty of recognition. She was also in a small part of Breaking Dawn in 2012.
The role in 50/50 for her in 2011 was her first movie about romance. She has plenty of movies as well as a theatrical performance of Cinderella coming up in 2014 and 2015. Many believe she is going to be one of the top actresses over the next couple of years due to her variety of types of movies she is successful in.
She has been very close friends with Adam Lambert since she was 18. There have often been rumors about them romantically but she denies them. Kendrick was actually dating Edgar White from 2008 until the early part of 2013. She was nominated for a Tony after the role in High Society. Even though she didn’t win, she is the second youngest nominee.
Fans love Kendrick and her great sense of personality. She is carefree and talks openly through social media. Her topics range from a day spent being a complete bum to random talks about why masturbating is a great way to relax. Of course such posts do create some controversy but she takes it all in stride.
She loves to bake, and when she has some free time from work, she often volunteers at a local bakery. She enjoys the work and she finds it to be very therapeutic. Kendrick is short, only standing 5’ 2” tall. Her favorite place to eat is Hot Doug’s in Chicago, and they have a hot dog named after her on the menu. She loves Lord of the Rings and watches all of the trilogy often.
