Anna Kendrick’s Confession: ‘I was a very late bloomer!’


Even Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick has made it through the dreaded and oh-so rough teen years. Anna (whose Twitter, @annakendrick47, is one of the greatest things to ever exist on the internet) covers Nylonmagazine’s February issue. Inside the mag’s pages, Anna dishes on everything from confidence to boy trouble!

Anna’s a singer, dancer and style icon now, but confesses she used to feel a little bit insecure about her body. “I was a very late bloomer. 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!'” Anna tells Nylon.

We’ve all been there, Anna. The comedy cutie also admits she’s dated some guys who might not have liked her back.

“The great torture from my teen years into my mid-20s was trying to get attention from guys who were not interested in me — like, at all. So I’m happy that now my type is a nice guy who likes me back.”

Oh, Anna. Now you’re speaking to our soul. Speaking of relationships, Anna spills that she definitely doesn’t need her friends to be perfect. Perfect is so boring!

“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,” she tells the mag.

Despite finding megafame in Hollywood, it’s clear that Anna’s still the same hilarious, honest and amazing girl she has always been.

Can YOU relate to Anna’s growing-up woes? Let us know! And don’t forget to pick up Nylon’s February issue when it hits stands on January 20!

PS: There are only 242 more days until Pitch Perfect 2 is released. Not that we’re already counting down or anything.
