Watch Anna Kendrick Become a Cat Whisperer on Billy on the Street

Acting, singing, philosophy … Is there anything Anna Kendrick can’t do? After this week’s episode of Billy on the Street, we can add feline mind-reading to Kendrick’s ever-growing list of talents. Manic host Billy Eichner challenged Kendrick to discern between things Katy Perry’s cat does and does not care about. (Being a cat, Kitty Purry apparently cares a lot about food but not so much about Perry’s relationships, career, or activism.) Props to Kendrick for both acing the pop quiz and managing to poke a little fun at Anne Hathaway as she accepted her award for doing so. {}

Anna Kendrick to be published by S&S UK

S&S UK will publish a collection of “humourous” autobiographical essays by actor Anna Kendrick.

As one of America’s “most popular versatile” actors of stage and screen, Kendrick’s autobiographical book will “amusingly recount memorable moments from throughout her life,” from her upbringing in New England to the blockbuster films.

The book will expand upon the “witty and ironic dispatches for which she is known” offering her “one-of-a-kind commentary on the absurdities she’s experienced” in her career.

Kendrick said: “I’m excited to publish my first book, and because I get uncomfortable when people have high expectations, I’d like to use this opportunity to showcase my ineptitude, pettiness, and the frequency with which I embarrass myself.”

She added: “And while many of my female inspirations who have become authors are incredibly well-educated and accomplished comedy writers, I’m very, very funny on Twitter, according to Buzzfeed and my mom, so I feel like this is a great idea. Quick question: are run-on sentences still frowned upon? Wait, is ending a sentence with a preposition still frowned upon? I mean, upon frowned? Dammit!”

Abigail Bergstrom, commissioning editor at S&S UK said: “We are immensely proud to be welcoming Anna Kendrick to our list, joining forces with Touchstone in the US. Anna’s wit, self-deprecation and wry sense of humour will translate brilliantly onto the page. We shall be thoroughly entertained, moved and captivated by her unique take on life and, for S&S across the world, this will be a stunning book for our autumn 2016 list.”

Kendrick was nominated for an Academy Award for her breakout role in “Up in the Air” in 2009 and has made numerous theatrical appearances including starring roles in the “The Twilight Saga” and “Pitch Perfect” film franchises. In 2013, she achieved musical success with the #2 Billboard hit song “Cups (When I’m Gone),” featured in “Pitch Perfect.” She also recently starred in “Pitch Perfect 2”.

The yet-to-be-titled book will be published in simultaneous hardback and audio editions in autumn 2016 with Touchstone and S&S Audio, imprints of S&S in New York. {}

Anna is 30-years-old today, August 9th! In honor of the big day, I scourged up some oldies — some high school yearbook photos and a very rare (albeit tiny) promo poster of her first TV production in ‘The Mayor’.
