Anna will be model for the new Kate Spade bags, and has done a Behind the Scenes look with People for her new photoshoot.

Anna Kendrick’s Kate Spade New York Ad Is Here – Go Behind the Scenes With PEOPLE!

Anna Kendrick is the ultimate multi-hyphenate in Hollywood at the moment. She can sing, dance, act, Tweet hilariously — and now she can add “model handbags” to the list, thanks to her holiday campaign for Kate Spade New York. She took PEOPLE exclusively behind the scenes of the shoot, but before you get to ogle all the gorgeous photos in this week’s PEOPLE (on stands Friday), we thought we’d give you a little sneak peek.

“It was so much fun,” Kendrick tells PEOPLE of the shoot. “We went to all these old spots in Vegas, so it felt like we got in a time machine. It was so romantic and fun. There were eight guys on the shoot with me who were just cracking me up! Mostly in their 50s and 60s but a couple in their 30s, and the photographer kept being like, ‘Just try to get her attention. Try to get her to laugh.’ So these guys were just cracking me up. They were totally these Vegas big shots for the day.”

Kendrick posed in a variety of luxe Vegas-appropriate looks (fur hats! bejeweled minis! glam gowns!) while surrounded by a coterie of men holding the brand’s latest bag. And lest you think the bag is too small, know that Kendrick already has her tiny-bag essentials list down to a science. “Just wallet, keys and phone. Well, and my retainer.”

The star, who sums up her style in three words as “Lazy or classic” (hmm, sounds familiar) says she likes to be versatile in her style — not just low-key or super-glam. “I’m either! If I’m running to the grocery store, [I’m in] jeans and a T-shirt,” she says. “But when I go out, I’ve started enjoying looking nice, and that’s a fun new phase for me to be in. To me, when I want to look nice, I just want to go with something that’s flattering and classic.”

From her first splurge (a pair of $75 Ralph Lauren sunglasses) to her most recent (a Cartier orchid pin as a reward for Into the Woods), two things have remained constant: her Weezer tank from a concert 15 years ago (“This is embarrassing.”) and her love of Kate Spade New York bags (even before she was the spokeswoman, she wore them everywhere). “[It’s what] I’ve always loved about Kate Spade, which is that it’s just gorgeous stuff. It’s timeless and it’s sophisticated, but it’s always a little bit playful.” Just like the lady herself. {stylenews.peoplestylewatch.com}

Anna Kendrick serenades Jeremy Jordan in ‘The Last 5 Years’ clip

“You don’t have to get a haircut,” Anna Kendrick sings to her beloved in The Last 5 Years, “you don’t have to change your shoes.” And you don’t have to wait until the film’s 2015 release to get a taste of Kendrick as Cathy.

The Last 5 Years, directed by P.S. I Love You‘s Richard LaGravenese, is adapted from Jason Robert Brown’s Off-Broadway hit that follows a couple’s five-year relationship told almost exclusively through song—and also told from two different timelines. Cathy’s parts begin at the end of the relationship while Jamie’s (Jeremy Jordan) begin at the start of it, and the two story lines don’t collide until Jamie proposes.

Sound confusing? Kendrick says not to worry. “It all just kind of feels like vignettes, like scenes from a marriage, except musical versions,” she told EW in February. “We were really worried about making sure that people were following the timeline of it, and actually it all works.”

In an exclusive clip, Kendrick’s Cathy seems to be at a good place in the relationship: She sings to Jamie about how he’s perfect the way he is in a song that’s often interrupted by kisses and, eventually, some undressing.

The Weinstein Company’s RADiUS nabbed the North American Rights to the film at the Toronto International Film Festival and are planning for a Valentine’s Day 2015 release. {insidemovies.ew.com}

Anna Kendrick says she threw out diamond earrings sent to her home by fan

Anna Kendrick does not accept gifts sent to her private residence.

The 29-year-old “Pitch Perfect” actress told a disturbing story in a recent podcast about when a crazed fan sent a very pricey present to her home address.

“I got (a gift) with, like, a really long letter about how he really felt like we should be together, and if I would just give him a chance, and he didn’t want to do it over social media because he thought that would pressure me because it was public … he (wanted) to be a gentleman. And he, uh, sent me a pair of diamond earrings,” shetold host Marc Maron Monday on an episode of “WTF.”

“Get the f–k out of here, for real ones?” Maron asked Kendrick.

“For real diamond earrings,” the brunette beauty confirmed.

“I did go and check. And I was just like, these have to go into the trash. I can’t. I cannot. I cannot wear them. I can’t give them to someone. It’s too weird. If the teddy bear goes in the trash, these go in the trash,” Kendrick continued.

“Just on principle. So, I had to throw them away. If you send something to my house, it’s going in the trash.”

The starlet just wowed onlookers Sunday at the Toronto International Film Festival as she stepped out for the premiere of her latest film, “The Last Five Years.”{nydailynews.com}

Anna was interviewed for WTF Podcast.



When Anna Kendrick was 10 years old, she convinced her parents to drive her from their home in Maine to New York City for auditions. That decision has paid off with a pair of huge award nominations, roles opposite some of the world’s biggest movie stars and a multi-platinum hit song. Anna and Marc talk about the many highlights of her young career and why she’s always worried that none of it is real. wtfpod.com

Anna Kendrick & Jeremy Jordan Sing Their Hearts Out In TIFF’s ‘The Last Five Years’

Two years after hitting it big in Pitch Perfect, Anna Kendrick is back singing her heart out in the musical movie The Last Five Years. Newcomer Jeremy Jordan joins Kendrick in the film they both premiered on day five at the Toronto Film Festival.

ET Canada caught up with the co-stars, and quickly got one small detail out of the way — the singing was pre-recorded. But unlike in Les Miserables, most scenes wouldn’t allow the on-set singing. “There are scenes where we’re in a convertible on the westside highway. It would make no sense to even try to record live sound,” Kendrick says. “So we didn’t want to be precious about singing live and making it a gimmick just to be like ‘we did the whole thing live.'”

Jordan, who formerly starred in Newsies and the hit musical series Smash, is a Tony-nominated actor who, sadly, is spending his two-year wedding anniversary away from his wife while promoting The Last Five Fears at TIFF.
