Anna Kendrick: Sexiness is stressful

Anna Kendrick embraces her petite stance and doesn't want to change anything about herself.

The 28-year-old actress has been open about coming to terms with her sex symbol status, previously admitting she understands it has helped her in the industry. However, Anna doesn't use her stunning looks alone to get jobs and is relieved she doesn't have the same attention as some other female stars.

“The thing is, my appearance - that’s never been my moneymaker. I’m fine being small," she explained to the August issue of Glamour magazine. "I’m fine being all the things I am. 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**king stressful.”

In the photoshoot to accompany her interview Anna strikes a series of glamorous poses in classic ensembles, such as a wide brimmed hat and brown cape as she walks the streets.

It seems there are some downsides of being in the spotlight for the brunette actress, especially when it comes to her wardrobe.

"Sometimes I just want to wear the same outfit for three days in a row. And I kind of can’t," she sighed.

Anna turns to certain items of clothing to highlight her enviable curves and steers clears of others which are unflattering.

"Well, in sample sizes, the dresses can be hemmed, but I can’t wear pants," she added. "Every time a stylist tries to put me in, like, a chic pantsuit, I’m like, “This isn’t gonna work. It’s going to look like a diaper. I know you think that you can do it; I promise you, you can’t.” So I appreciate stores that have petites sections."
