Anna Kendrick Couldn't Afford Shoes to Wear to Her First Oscars

Anna Kendrick Couldn't Afford Shoes to Wear to Her First Oscars

Anna Kendrick shows off her gorgeous tulle dress while making an appearance on The Tonight Show on Friday (October 28) in New York City.

While promoting her memoir Scrappy Little Nobody, the 31-year-old actress revealed that she couldn’t afford shoes for her first Oscars in 2009.

“My stylist told me I had to wear the perfect shoes for an outfit, and because the movie isn’t out yet, nobody really knows who you are. ‘The shoe places don’t want to loan you the shoes so can you buy a pair?’” she explained on The Ellen Show.

Anna added, “I was like, ‘I’m still poor.’ So it was this weird combination of like all these great things are happening but at the same time nothing has changed so, it was a weird dichotomy.”

FYI: Anna is wearing a Jonathan Cohen dress.

    “I was like, ‘I’m still poor.’

    is this B serious? I dont think you have a clue as to what poor is.

  • Anna

    Seriously. It says her net worth is 10 million. Even if it was 1 million, no, even if it was 100,000 dollars, that’s still 100,050 dollars than what I have in my bank. I’m literally at -50. These people have no idea what poor means.
