Another down-to-earth celebrity: Anna Kendrick

Self-deprecating selfie.

Anna Kendrick is a hoot. I adore her, and I haven’t even seen that many of her movies. She’s just so effortlessly cool.

She’s funny. For starters. Her Twitter feed is just about the only reason I might want to get Twitter someday. Fortunately, her stream of hilarious comments is public, so I can read them without getting an account, but I must remain on the sidelines.

Her humor is deliciously self-deprecating, but not in that phony (to me at least) Kathy Griffin My-Life-On-The-D-List way. Her Twitter description reads, “Pale, awkward and very very small. Form an orderly queue, gents,” and for “Location” she writes “Probably by the food.” On this blog her post happens to follow the one I wrote about a porn star. I’d like to think she’d be amused to follow a porn star. She’d surely come up with a great tweet about it.

It’s become a bit of a sport on the Internet, following and reposting the tweets of Anna Kendrick. Here are a few of my favorites:

It’s refreshing to see an actress in the entertainment biz who really is funny without someone having to put a script in front of them. Anna is among that small group of celebs who just seem to be happy and comfortable. Which is a better long-term strategy than trying to impress behind dark glasses and tinted limousine windows. Go Anna! We need more stars like you.

And finally, here’s a brilliant commercial she made for the [bleep]:

  2. I had to Google her, John, that’s how far out of the loop I am. But I love it when people are down to earth, whether they are celebrities or not. Anyone who is genuine gives me hope.

  3. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times
    it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal.
    I must say you have done a superb job with this. Also, the blog loads super fast for me on Chrome.
    Superb Blog!
