Anna Kendrick Doesn't Think Actors Should Talk About Sexism: 'We're In Such Positions Of Privilege'

Anna Kendrick is all about talking about sexism, but she doesn’t necessarily believe that actors are the right people to tackle these social issues questions.

“It shouldn’t be the most important conversation about sexism – because no one really wants to f**king hear actors talk about this, because we’re in such positions of privilege,” the 31-year-old actress reveals in the latest issue of Glamour.

“I would love to hear more about sexism that exists in other fields and how we can address that – but we keep getting asked about it,” Anna added. “Well, it’s weird, isn’t it, because I feel like why would anybody want my ‘expert opinion’ on any of these topics? If you want to learn about intersectional feminism, read Roxanne Gay, don’t ask me, you know? I’m being asked to speak on these things when I’m trying to learn about them myself.”

    “Wow. I will never look at this film, Bertolucci or Brando the same way again. This is beyond disgusting. I feel rage,” Chris tweeted after reading the story.

    Anna Kendrick also got involved in the conversation and she said she’s been telling people about this for years, but no one seemed to care before.

    Anna Kendrick Reveals the 'Shameful' Truth About 'Up in the Air' Press Tour

    Anna Kendrick is perfectly pink in a Celine top on the cover of Flare magazine’s Winter 2016 issue, provided exclusively to Just Jared.

    Here’s what the 31-year-old Trolls star had to share with the mag:

    On telling people how many people you’ve had sex with: “When you’re 22, it feels like there’s an ideal you’re supposed to aspire to, but nobody will tell you what it is. It’s completely arbitrary, and some people are going to think it’s the right thing and some people are going to think it’s the wrong thing.”

    On Twitter vs Instagram: “There are so many people who are in the business of being outraged…Twitter just has a more negative energy [than Instagram], which I feel more at home in.”

    On the bad Up in the Air press tour: “I didn’t want to write the stuff about Up in the Air. It felt like this shameful thing…Having to take any dark and strange parts of my personality and shove them down for a few months—it made me crazy. I was worried I was going to let people down if I ever acted like me.”
