Anna Kendrick's New Motto: 'Don't Be a Pretentious F-ckface!'

Anna Kendrick's New Motto: 'Don't Be a Pretentious F-ckface!'

Anna Kendrick and her BFF Aubrey Plaza cover up with an umbrella in this new photo feature for Elle magazine’s “This is 30″ issue.

Here’s what Anna, 30, had to share with the mag:

On her new motto: “I can’t think of anything that wouldn’t make me sound like a pretentious f*ckface. Maybe that should be my motto: Don’t be a pretentious f*ckface.”

On the worst advice she’s received: “I got some terrible advice when I was really young, which was to not have a back-up plan. It really is terrible advice but I followed it. I had this singularity of focus. I never got to the point where I ever considered seriously doing something else.”

On the secret to her success: “I don’t know. I don’t really have a serious answer for that. I’m trying to think of a funny answer because so much of it is dumb luck and hard work and some kind of magical mixture of the two. If I had a secret to success, I’d make a lot of money writing a book about it.”
