Anna Kendrick Covers 'Boston Common' Summer 2012

Anna Kendrick rocks a red Oscar de la Renta dress on the cover of Boston Common‘s Summer issue.

Here’s what the 26-year-old actress had to share:

On doing different genres of film: “It wasn’t strategic. Those other roles were more a case of wish fulfillment, being able to do [in movies] what I’d find much more difficult to do in life. I’m a control freak but not nearly as rigid. When I fall apart, I’m all over the place.”

On how Hollywood won’t change her: “I still find it all rather scary, I still get sweaty and super-nervous before I walk the red carpet. I remember when I first came to Los Angeles, I was shocked at the open ambition and complete lack of humility. Bragging about what you had, what you had done, and what you hoped to do – I thought it was such a strange phenomenon. Those are things you keep to yourself.”

On preferring indie films over big blockbusters: “I don’t know if my agents would appreciate me saying this, but the focus and energy demanded when you don’t have any money or time is much more exciting than those projects where there’s a little too much time and a little too much money and it gets sluggish. You lose that urgency, and that’s what I love most.”
