Anna Kendrick: Lively is tough
Anna Kendrick says Blake Lively could “kick her ass”.
The actress is currently shooting indie thriller movie The Voices with Blake’s husband, actor Ryan Reynolds.
Anna joked that she’s sure the Gossip Girl star doesn’t mind her working with Ryan, as Blake’s physically much more impressive than she is.
“I’m in Germany with Ryan Reynolds, I’m doing a movie with him now. He’s a sweetheart. He’s here with his wife Blake Lively, they are the cutest couple. It makes you sick. They are very, very sweet. No, there’s no PDAs they are very lovely, they are not obnoxious at all,” Anna told Australian radio hosts Kyle & Jackie O.
“She’s so tall too, I’ve met her before, years and years ago, and every time I see her, her height surprises me. She could totally kick my ass! I don’t think she’s worried about it [me working with Ryan].”
Anna has been making headlines for her saucy posts on Twitter. She enjoys seeing what she can get away with when posting her rude comments online.
“On Twitter you say something dirty and then watch people’s minds explode, it’s really fun. It’s the mischievous part of me that would pull Halloween pranks. I do have fun saying dirty things on Twitter,” she laughed.
“Yeah my mom does read them, she follows me on Twitter, but I cursed like a sailor growing up so she’s probably used to it. Although she probably does think I’m quite strange saying it.”

What’s the first information you consume in the morning?
I still haven’t bought a clock radio, so I look at my phone to check the time. And then I’ll see that I’ve got texts and emails. So then I’m just up because I’m afraid that somebody’s died in the middle of the night.
How do you get your news?
I’m addicted to Reddit. I spend a lot of time there, probably more than I should, but it’s definitely one of the first things that I check in the morning. That’s how I found out about the theater shooting in Aurora because someone who worked there had posted about it. It’s amazing—that site gets information faster than anybody.
Are you a fan of any particular subreddits?
Sometimes I’ll go to the “Get Motivated” subreddit just to get me off Reddit … There was one this morning that literally said, “Whatever you’re supposed to be doing right now, go fucking do it,” and I was like, “Aye aye, Reddit!”
What occupies you in the car?
I like to listen to This American Life in the car. There is something really soothing about it. They present stories in a way that’s not overwhelming, even if it’s really intense.
How do you listen to music?
I just got into Spotify. It’s a game-changer. Weirdly, I’m in this rut where I haven’t been listening to a lot of new music, so I’m actively looking for recommendations. I’ve been listening to comedy albums, like Paul Tompkins and Maria Bamford and Eugene Mirman, which is actually really fun when you’re getting ready in the morning. It totally gets me pumped for the day.
Are you a TV junkie?
Not really. I didn’t own a TV for years, so I almost forget that it’s available sometimes. But there are certain shows that I’ll obsess over. I finally just watched all of Girls straight through. And I’m a big Game of Thrones fan.
How do you wind down at bedtime?
I’ve been reading this book, Sex at Dawn, which is fascinating but dense. It’s about sexual anthropology, and it was recommended by Dan Savage, who I adore.
Give us the skinny on your favorite app.
You know what somebody just got me into? Snapchat! It’s totally for teenagers to send each other dirty pictures, but I use it to send my friends ugly faces throughout the day. I spend so much time trying to look nice and smile and never take an unflattering photo that there’s something deeply satisfying about making the ugliest face I can make, and knowing that somebody is going to see it for five seconds.
What’s your biggest digital indulgence?
I got my house done so that I can control everything from my phone, which is kind of dorky but really fun. And probably a lot more money than I should have spent for stuff that I could do with wall switches.
With such a bloated media universe, how do you cut out the fat?
I’ll let you know when I figure it out.
