Why we think she’s hot:

If we can let you in on a little secret, Anna’ Kendricks birthday falls only one day removed of that of our magazine’s creator, which doesn’t just account for why her twitter feed and ours are so similar, it probably validates exactly why she’s plausibly our favorite celebrity of the twenty-teens as well. Which basically means, if all you know about Anna is Up In The Air and the Twilight flicks, you’re missing out on one of the brightest young minds in Hollywood today. While it’s very august, that this lovely August born Leo was either nominated for, or won awards for six of her first nine films, there is so much more to Miss Kendrick than just her stats and acting skills. In fact, if you ever get into a situation where someone forces you to follow only one person on Twitter, Anna’s all you need, and you’d be wise to dig up her Shower Thoughts on the web to boot. Likewise, go rent any of her Pitch Perfect films, or better yet, her indie stuff like Drinking Buddies or Happy Christmas. Trust us, any bookie will tell you that if you do, it’s a safe bet that you’ll fall in love with Anna Kendrick as much as we have.
