Famous Quotes by Anna Kendrick

• I feel like people want there to be this mystery between film and theater, but I just kind of went where I got jobs, you know?

• My family has had to become quite understanding about me not returning phone calls when I’m filming.

• There have definitely been more than a few moments in my life where I’m wondering where the next paycheck will come from and how I’m gonna pay rent.

• There will always be a part of me that wants to do a movie musical. I feel like you’re doing yourself a disservice when you say something like that, because you never know if that thing is gonna come along and be right, but I’d be lying if I said that that wasn’t true.

• To not be self-conscious of your appearance is huge, and something that I desperately hope to carry into film at some point in my useless life – to not be thinking, ‘My ear looks weird from this angle, why is the camera over there?’
