Anna Kendrick: I have strange scent habits

Anna Kendrick has revealed her strange scent habits.

The actress attended See by Chloé's fragrance launch in New York City's West Village earlier this week, where she shared her quirky fragrance habit with US Elle magazine.

Anna likes to keep a nice smelling memento from every film she has worked on.

"God, that's a good question," Anna answered when quizzed on her favourite scent memory. "This is kind of gross, but I keep a bottle of lotion from every movie I've ever done. It's usually some cheap bottle of lotion or shampoo that I picked up at a drug store, and then I'll keep it in a closet somewhere so if I smell it, it totally takes me back. So I've got a little drawer of body butters, shampoos, and stuff that I was just using for one movie."

Sniffing a scent transports the 27-year-old back to a certain time and place.

"I don't know the brand, but there was a mango body butter that I used during Up in the Air and if I smell it, it completely takes me back even to this day," Anna revealed.

The redhead discussed her summer beauty rituals. She likes to have a slight tan, but is aware of the damage the sun can have on skin.

"PCA always has great sun block. Also, always hydrate! I use more serums than anything. I think that those are a little lighter on the skin [than face cream]. A bit of colour is good for you, too," she finished.
