There are a million reasons to love Anna Kendrick – okay, maybe a little bit less than that but you catch my drift. Most of us fell in love with her after she sang and remixed her way into our hearts as Beca in Pitch Perfect. Yet there’s so much to more to this 26 year old than her ability to make us fall in love with her by just being her awesome self. So without further ado, here are 9 reasons to love Anna Kendrick!
1. She Can Actually Sing
Like really, truly, this girl has an amazing set of pipes on her! She sang with Kristin Chenoweth – you know the singer, actress, theatre powerhouse who nearly sang circles around everyone on Glee? And she KILLED it. As if her musical talents aren’t enough to add to the list of reasons to love Anna Kendrick, maybe the fact that she’ll be back for Pitch Perfect 2 will change your mind. Beca, we can’t wait to see what other amazing songs you’re going to get stuck in our heads!
That’s right, one song is one of the biggest reasons to love Anna Kendrick. Why? Because I was completely and totally mesmerized when she pulled this stunt out in the movie, so much so that I made it my ringtone. Then I saw her perform it on Letterman, then I realized she had a music video for this song and I was done. In fact I love it so much that my boyfriend and I learned the entire Cups routine on Thanksgiving, then got his entire family into it. It’s addictive and quite easy to learn. Go try it!
3. She’s Hilarious
How do I know this? Because I follow her on Twitter and her comments and Tweets make me giggle and laugh, instantly making me want to be best friends with her. Her humour definitely runs high on the list of reasons to love Anna Kendrick. Plus the fact that often times it’s self-deprecating humour mixed with thoughts us regular folk have in our heads – such as drooling over Ryan Gosling in any movie he’s in – makes her that much more relatable, and that much cooler in our eyes!
4. She’s Truly Talented
She’s been in some of the best movies out there, and her resume truly reflects her range of talents.

6. Her Interviews Are Awesome
Another thing on the list of reasons to love Anna Kendrick is that her interviews are awesome.
