(NEW YORK) — If you meet Anna Kendrick in the street, don’t expect a warm and fuzzy reaction.
“When I’m snarky with people, they know that’s just how I communicate,” the Pitch Perfect actress and singer tells fashion website Net-a-Porter. “I’d be terrible at being like Taylor Swift, the perfect Miss America version of interacting with fans and making sure they have a good experience.”
“I mean, I don’t want people to meet me and have it f*** up their day,” she adds, “but I’m glad I can say something weird to them and they know that’s just me.”
The actress’ attitude is on display in Twitter feed, which includes recent quips like, “I’ve always heard that Tom Cruise is tirelessly positive and upbeat and I’d to work with him one day. I think I could break him,” or, “Oh God. I just realized I’m stuck with me my whole life.”
Her tweets helped Kendrick land a book deal. Scrappy Little Nobody is due out in November. And while she was happy to have an outlet, she couldn’t escape approaching even that with cynicism. “I was so happy to create something that was all mine,” she tells the website. “Although, my editor kept saying, ‘It’s up to you, it’s your book.’ And I was like, ‘But could you tell me what to do?’”
Kendrick stars in the R-rated comedy Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, out July 8.
