Anna Kendrick: I Owe My Career to Weirdos [WATCH VIDEO]

“Cake” actress Anna Kendrick says her career took off thanks to people she calls “weirdos.”

Tony-nominated actress Anna Kendrick, who first caught everyone’s notice in her role as snotty high school student Jessica Stanley on “Twilight,” admits it’s the “weirdos” of her world who’ve made the success she is today.


Kendrick, 29, who played a Cinderella whose Prince Charming cheats on her in “Into the Woods” last Christmas, is on the cover of Fashion Magazine’s February 2015 issue where she credits where she is today to the oddball people who’ve come into her life.

“If it wasn’t for the weirdos, I’d have no career,” the actress told the magazine. “There were these two fans of mine that sent me this thing for my birthday-through my publicist. It was a letter about how they met on a fan forum and they like lived in different states but they met up and – sort of weirdly got together. Two weirdos found each other because they liked what ever weirdo vibes I was giving off!”

And despite the bizarre types of people that seem attracted to her personality, she is grateful, if a little bit creeped out.

“That was so sweet, it almost made me cry. That said, I’m really grateful to all the weirdos out there but I think it’s better for my personal sanity not to read my own fan fiction,” added Kendrick.

Kendrick, who’s reprising her role on “Pitch Perfect 2” this May, also shared her thoughts on the wrong kind of Prince Charming to date.

“The wrong kind of guy to fall in love with is the guy who will let go of the steering wheel as a joke,” she advised during the interview. “A guy who finds it amusing to make you uncomfortable, which is more common that you’d think, is someone you want to avoid.”
