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