As if things couldn't get better for the reigning Queen of the Interwebz, Anna Kendrick. Let's see if we can say this in one big breath: Just this year alone, the 27-year-old Maine native finished filming The Voices, opposite Ryan Reynolds, premiered the lovable rom-rom Drinking Buddies at SXSW, earned a platinum record for her Pitch Perfect single "Cups" (whose video also hit over 20 million views on YouTube), signed onto Zach Braff's Kickstarter-funded Wish I Was Here (as a manic pixie dream girl), and is currently filming the movie musical The Last Five Years. And to pencil in one more thing or her to do list, she recently signed on to play Cinderella in Rob Marshall's Disney film adaptation of the musical Into the Woods, which already boasts a cast that includes Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep, and Emily Blunt, to name a few. According to IMDB, it's due in 2014.
Christ. Is that all? Not that anyone here is complaining at all. Ever since Pitch Perfect became the sleeper hit of 2012, Kendrick's been one of the most obsessed-over celebrities on the Internet. Hell, she even has her own subreddit dedicated to her. Maybe it's her sardonic sense of humor, hence her tweet response to director Rian Johnson congratulating/threatening her about Into the Woods:
@rianjohnson If I fuck it up I'll do the job for you! :-) I'll meet you at the Golden Gate Bridge ;-) You bring some rope! haha :-|â€” Anna Kendrick (@AnnaKendrick47) June 21, 2013
Whatever it is, one thing's certain: Anna Kendrick's star is continuing to rise with no signs of slowing down, so you better hop on the bandwagon now before you look like the jack-ass trying to be cool and pretending to be familiar with her when she's a household name.
