Anna Kendrick on turning 30

Anna Kendrick will not be throwing a huge party on her 30th birthday.

The Pitch Perfect 2 actress is entering her thirties on August 9.

And even though this epic birthday is just a few months away, Anna has no fear over the date’s approach.

"I felt like when I turned 29, I was like, 'Well that's basically 30,'" she told America’s Cosmopolitan. "So I've been sort of saying that I'm 30 for a year so it's gonna be an easy transition."

Although the hilarious star is known for her warm and outgoing personality, Anna is not planning on making her 30th birthday a big deal.

She is aiming for a more subtle celebration.

"F*** that, I'm not doing a birthday party,” she said of throwing a huge bash to say goodbye to her twenties.

Anna previously spoke about her perfectionistic nature.

The star is a self-proclaimed “stickler for detail”, which may be why she’d rather not plan a party.

"I love acting but I also think I'd make a great assistant director," she mused to German magazine Jolie.

"It's a job where you have to organise everything for the director. I'd be more efficient than anyone else, because I'm a real stickler for detail. I get really psychotic if there's an unplanned pause on set or things generally don't go the way they should.”

But Anna might be up for baking her own cake, as she loves cooking delicious things in the oven.

"I used to bake a lot. That requires my full attention, even more so than cooking, because you have to be very precise," she explained to publication Jolie.

"I just switch my brain off when I bake. All I have to worry about is things like, 'How much brown sugar and how much white sugar do I need?' Unfortunately I'm a bit out of practice.”
