Anna Kendrick: My love life was torture

Anna Kendrick finds people who are too confident boring.

The 29-year-old actress' love life has been in the spotlight since she found fame in 2009 movie Up in the Air. It was only last year she was linked to Game of Thrones star Alfie Allen, but it's thought she's currently dating cinematographer Ben Richardson after he helped on her movie Drinking Buddies in 2013.

While Anna may have figured out what sort of man she wants now, it was another story when she was younger.

“The great torture from my teen years into my mid-20s was trying to get attention from guys who were not interested in me - like, at all," she sighed to Nylon magazine. "So I’m happy that now my type is a nice guy who likes me back."

She also shared what impresses her and insists modesty is the biggest thing she looks for when meeting new individuals.

"Sometimes I meet people who are too confident," she added. "I’m like, ‘I don’t even like being around you. You’re boring. Get a neurosis, and then we’ll talk.'"

Anna is known for speaking her mind and often does this on Twitter. Some of her tweets cause controversy though, such as one referring to watching Hollywood heartthrob Ryan Gosling on the silver screen and joking about touching herself in the cinema.

"I don't give a f**k. Twitter is only 140 characters. There's really not that much that I could reveal, then regret later," she said of her online antics.

“Thank God I’ve never been in a room with him [Ryan]! I don’t feel embarrassed, though. I’m sure he has a sense of humour. But I’d probably feel like I’d have to address [the tweet], and I’d end up saying something to make it much, much worse.”
