Anna Kendrick, who plays Cinderella in Into the Woods, has some very specific thoughts about dating and finding Prince Charming, or not finding Prince Charming as the case may be.

The 29-year-old opened up about love and dating in an interview for the cover of February's edition of Fashion magazine.

"The idea that Cinderella gets cheated on by her prince is the most twisted and genius concept," she told the magazine and shared her viewpoint on what type of men should be avoided.

"I've never really gone for the razzle-dazzle types, no quarterbacks, no flashy guys and no Prince Charmings. Chris Pine’s version of Prince Charming is so funny, and so on-point, and very much all style and no substance," she said of her Into the Woods costar. "A [date] once picked me up in a Mustang and he was leaning on the hood of it. He was waiting for me and I was inside my apartment, looking out the window, thinking 'Oh, this is going to go terribly.'"

Kendrick continued to single out men who enjoy making a woman fearful or uncomfortable.

"The wrong kind of guy to fall in love with is the guy who will let go of the steering wheel as a joke. A guy who finds it amusing to make you uncomfortable—which is more common than you'd think—is someone you want to avoid."

Kendrick also shared lessons learned from her own parents divorce.

"They taught me that staying together for the kids is the wrong approach. It perpetuates this warped idea of what a healthy relationship looks like."
