Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna KendrickA collection of humorous autobiographical essays by the Academy Award-nominated actress and star of Up in the Air and Pitch Perfect.
Even before she made a name for herself on the silver screen starring in films like Pitch Perfect, Up in the Air, Twilight, and Into the Woods, Anna Kendrick was unusually small, weird, and “10 percent defiant.”
At the ripe age of thirteen, she had already resolved to “keep the crazy inside my head where it belonged. Forever. But here’s the thing about crazy: It. Wants. Out.” In Scrappy Little Nobody, she invites readers inside her brain, sharing extraordinary and charmingly ordinary stories with candor and winningly wry observations.
With her razor-sharp wit, Anna recounts the absurdities she’s experienced on her way to and from the heart of pop culture as only she can—from her unusual path to the performing arts (Vanilla Ice and baggy neon pants may have played a role) to her double life as a middle-school student who also starred on Broadway to her initial “dating experiments” (including only liking boys who didn’t like her back) to reviewing a binder full of butt doubles to her struggle to live like an adult woman instead of a perpetual “man-child.”
Enter Anna’s world and follow her rise from “scrappy little nobody” to somebody who dazzles on the stage, the screen, and now the page—with an electric, singular voice, at once familiar and surprising, sharp and sweet, funny and serious (well, not that serious).
Anna Kendrick Describing An Awkward Sexual Experiences Is Absolutely Iconic
I know, I know Aside from looking incredible as per usual , Kendrick talks about her affinity for Belgian-style beers, mentions the embarrassment that comes with signing autographs while shopping for underwear, and drops some foul-mouthed statistical knowledge. Kendrick does in fact enjoy beer—"every single Belgian-style beer"—which brings us to this irresistible follow-up: According to OkCupid's infamous data nugget, beer fans are also more likely to go home with someone on the first date. We'd venture to guess that there's a strong positive correlation between mentions of Kendrick on the Internet and getting "Cups" stuck in your head for three days. Oh, and there's a video of her shoot in which she warns people not to talk about liver cancer on the first date and explains how the drive-thru at Del Taco can actually be romantic.
