Anna Kendrick Says She ‘Would Hate’ To Be Overconfident
There are plenty of reasons to love Anna Kendrick, but perhaps the actress’ biggest draw is her relatability. Kendrick’s candid interviews, hilarious Twitter account and self-deprecating humor tend to make her feel less like an untouchable celebrity and more like the best friend we wish we had. In Nylon’s February issue, the “Into the Woods” star told the magazine about why she would hate to be overconfident:
I think self-doubt is healthy. It pushes you, and humbles you, and I would really hate to be one of the three people in the fucking universe who are actually well-rounded, because then you can’t relate to anybody else’s inner shit. Sometimes I meet people who are too confident. I’m like, “I don’t even like being around you. You’re boring. Get a neurosis, and then we’ll talk.”
But that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t feel comfortable in her own skin. The 29-year-old told Nylon that she’s learned to accept and embrace her body over the years:
“I was a very late bloomer,” Kendrick said. “I was the smallest in my class, always telling myself, ‘I’m never getting boobs!’ I remember being comforted by hearing that guys like small boobs and big boobs. They like any boobs!’ At the time I was like, ‘That is excellent news!’”
