Anna Kendrick seems to have come out of nowhere, and she is now a very sought after actress.
Over the last few years, she has played in a variety of films, most notably Pitch Perfect and Up In The Air.
Anna said that while she has many fans, she also has many critics and some of them don’t think she is pretty enough to be as popular as she is or deserving of certain roles.
“The most common thing that I get is, ‘Am I the only one who doesn’t think that Anna Kendrick is pretty?'” she told Marie Claire during an interview. “And you’re like, ‘No, you’re not the only one. Arguably, all of the boys in my high school agree with you.'”
Kendrick said that she doesn’t let the criticism get her down and that she is happy to have been given such great roles and to have had the success she has experienced.

“Mostly it’s the fear that the wolves are always at your heels and you’re going to be tossed out into the street,” she told the magazine. “If you grow up middle class, you just always feel like you’ve got to be working, because otherwise you won’t be able to pay the rent.”
It seems like Anna’s success hasn’t gone to her head and she is a very down to earth person.
