Teachers use the website to seek out donations for various resources and projects from books and science equipment to field trips. The donation from Kendrick will primarily be disbursed to schools in southern and central Maine.

Anna Kendrick Covers Glamour

Anna KendrickAnna Kendrick covers the June 2015 issue of Glamour, where she is promoting her new film, Pitch Perfect 2.
Anna Kendrick
On the uncertainty of the next job: “As an actress you’re perpetually about to be unemployed. That fear — when you have two parents who worked 9-to-5 jobs and went through periods of being unemployed — is real. Those were not welcome times in my childhood. Working 14 hours a day isn’t sustainable, but I prefer it [to doing fewer films]. I might as well be doing the thing that I wanted to do my whole life.” Continue reading

Anna Kendrick Covers Glamour UK

Anna KendrickAnna Kendrick covers the May 2015 issue of Glamour UK where she is promoting Pitch Perfect 2.

On posing for the cameras: “Every year that goes by, I think that my on-camera smile is going to get easier. It’s got worse and worse, to the point where I’m giving that Britney Spears terrified smile, where the lips are upturned, but there’s nothing but fear in the eyes… I’m also the queen of ruining group photos. All my friends will be smiling and looking really pretty, and I’ll be there pretending to pick my nose — or actually picking my nose. It’s a fine line.”

On not staying out of the spotlight in her off time: “Part of it is because I’m dressed really boring in sweatpants and sneakers, so those pictures just don’t sell. You need to be really styled — in the perfect leather jacket and little booties, and have your red lipstick and your coffee — and I haven’t managed that yet. If I’ve got jeans on, it’s a good day.”
Anna Kendrick
On her public image: “I feel like 29 is just total garbage. I’d rather just be 30 for two years. When I say I’m 29, I think I sound like I’m trying to make sure everybody knows I’m not 30. I look like a teenager. I really like ’50s-style dresses, but they make you look childish, and I don’t want to look like one of those people trying to look like a little schoolgirl. I’m trying to give a message to the world that I am a grown up.”

On reuniting with her Pitch Perfect co-stars: It felt “a lot like school. Some of the girls got me into The Bachelor, so that became a group texting moment for us, and when you get back together, you remember every little quirk of everyone’s personalities. Because we’re basically shooting the same movie again — different scenarios, but in a lot of ways, very much the same, so it was trippy. It was like, ‘Didn’t we make this already? Was the first one just a fever dream? Or a premonition, and this is actually the real thing?'”

On maturing in the entertainment industry: “I know that things will be more complicated as an older actress, in ways that I can’t anticipate, but I would really enjoy getting to the point where the reason I’m getting roles or not isn’t based on if somebody thinks I’m hot enough. I feel like I’ve always been a character actress, and this is a blip in my career where I’m playing the ingénue. I’ll be a lot more comfortable and get excited when I’m playing women who aren’t supposed to be pretty.” Continue reading

Anna Kendrick Covers Nylon

Anna KendrickAnna Kendrick, who stars in the new film Into the Woods, covers the February 2015 issue of Nylon, where she discusses how she became such a Twitter phenomenon.

On Twitter: “I don’t give a fuck. Twitter is only 140 characters. There’s really not that much I could reveal, then regret later. Of course, me being me, the tweets I want to take back are the ones that I think could’ve been punchier or more concise.

On her crush on Ryan Gosling: “Thank God I’ve never been in a room with him! I don’t feel embarrassed, though. I’m sure he has a sense of humor. But I’d probably feel like I’d have to address [the tweet], and I’d end up saying something to make it much, much worse.” Continue reading

Anna Kendrick Covers Marie Claire

Anna KendrickAnna Kendrick is on the cover of the December 2014 issue of Marie Claire magazine, where she discusses her looks, her role in the new musical Into the Woods and her plans to take a break.

Kendrick tweeted about the interview, saying, “Marie Claire got me drunk for my interview #true Didn’tFightIt.”

On people commenting on her looks: “The most common thing that I get is, ‘Am I the only one who doesn’t think that Anna Kendrick is pretty?’ And you’re like, ‘No, you’re not the only one. Arguably, all of the boys in my high school agree with you.'” Continue reading
