Tomorrow comes Rob Marshall’s fairy tale mashup musical Into the Woods in German cinemas; Actress Anna Kendrick plays the role of Cinderella, who with her golden shoes on the run from her Prince Charming (Chris Pine) in the wild thicket of the fairy tale forest meets several other well-known characters, including Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy) and one seedy witch (Meryl Streep).
The fact that the musically gifted Kendrick likes to be used in musical roles goes back to her career beginnings on New York’s Broadway. Through her role in Twilight, she gained greater fame in 2008, followed by her breakthrough in 2009 with Up in the Air, for which she received an Oscar nomination. In the following years she built her career with Twilight sequels, Edgar Wright’s comic adaptation Scott Pilgrim against the rest of the world, the tragic comedy 50/50 – Friends for Survival and the successful comedy Pitch Perfect and today she is one of the most sought-after actresses of all.
Here are five naked facts about Anna Kendrick that provide interesting insights into the life of the down-to-earth actress:
1. Brave girl
Even at the tender age of ten, Anna Kendrick was brave, some might even say reckless. Because she was born in Portland, Maine, and what does a ten-year-old girl who wants to go to auditions do? That’s right, she gets on the bus and drives 500 kilometers from Portland to New York City. At least that’s what Anna Kendrick and her brother did – the early commitment seems to have paid off.
