Kendrick: Looks don't win me roles

Anna Kendrick says she's happy with the way she is

Anna Kendrick has said she'd hate to make it on to a "most beautiful" list - because it would be too "stressful".

The Twilight and Pitch Perfect actress, 28, told Glamour magazine that she was relieved that her appearance wasn't what got her roles.

Anna, who donned sixties style outfits for the mag, said : "The thing is, my appearance - that's never been my moneymaker. I'm fine being small. I'm fine being all the things I am."

The 5ft 2in star added: "And I'm happy I'm not supposed to be on the 50 Most Beautiful list all the time, because that would be super f***ing stressful."

Anna also discussed not using a script in Happy Christmas, a film co-starring Lena Dunham and released later this month about a 20-something who moves into her married brother's house.

"There was an outline, so we'd have an idea of what day it was. But we wore our own clothes, did our own make-up. It was an experience unlike any other I've ever had and probably ever will again," she said.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Spending time on your own will be rewarding. You're an extremely conscientious person who is hyperaware of your surroundings. Sometimes this sensitivity can inhibit you from doing what you really want. You're afraid of offending people with your bold ideas. Instead of repressing your instincts, obey them. If you've developed a romantic interest in someone special, make your move. Playing the aggressor will boost your confidence. Keep your conversations light and playful.More
