This isn't meant as a negative point by any means, but merely an observation: if you don't have a girlfriend, you may not know who Anna Kendrick is. She isn't one of those celebrities who works a lot, and also doesn't frequently have her face and name splattered all over the tabloids and newspapers. She's that cute girl in the movies your girlfriend likes (if you have one) and that is where most dudes know her from.
Her biggest two roles have likely been the Twilight series in which she played Jessica, and the two Pitch Perfect films, in which she was the main character Beca. More recently she had a supporting role in The Accountant, but like we said, she's an actress who has made her career thus far in chick-friendly movies. But with that said, she's the kind of star most people can get excited about.
She can act, she can sing and she can crack a joke, and does so frequently. By the way, we don't mean, she can make noise come out of her mouth and make it sound good with a specialized machine, she can actually sing. But aside from the acting, singing, and occasionally being witty thing, we forgot to mention she's very attractive. At just over five feet tall and very petite, she has the body type that many dudes like, and a face that is pretty darn cute (okay, we'll admit, there are plenty of guys who aren't crazy about her look, but we'll try to change their minds here). Here are fifteen jaw-dropping hot pictures of the talented Anna Kendrick.
15 Hey, I Like Your...Chair
This one seems like a fitting picture with which to start out. We're having some trouble coming up with context for this one, but we can use our imaginations and come up with some half-entertaining scenarios, right? Maybe she was in the middle of changing and someone barged through the door, taking her by surprise, and she just backed up awkwardly and sat on this chair, haphazardly managing to put on an intense, sexy face while doing so. On the other hand it's far more likely that like any other photoshoot, those behind the camera just choreographed this pose out of thin air. We're not arguing with the result of course...
14 Purple Works
This is a theme that will come up a lot throughout this list: clothes, makeup and hairstyles that look like they are from decades past. We aren't quite sure whether the look is a personal favorite of our lovely subject or if the people designing her shoots just think she looks awesome with big hair (she does, for sure). In this case, the combo of the intense eyes, purple dress and bright red hair look great together. What she's doing on the table rather than sitting in one of the tables we'll never know, but that's just more photoshoot magic; they don't have to make any sense.
13 That Smile
Before we get to drooling over this picture, we'd like to point out what is on the banner behind her: The Trevor Project is a non-profit that provides crisis and suicide prevention help for LGBTQ youth. It is a good cause and she's a vocal supporter of it. So, you know, if you ever see her at the bar, be sure to mention this and have a convincing way of lying about your involvement, it may be a good angle to take.
Back to the star of the picture though, that is a heck of a dress and shows off her wicked body perfectly.
12 Dark Lipstick
We believe that the one word that could be accurately used for those eyes is "piercing". That is a nice color of blue and in combination with the eye makeup and the purple lipstick make an almost threateningly good looking Anna Kendrick. The serious face and the hands on the hips pose works to offer the same effect.
We also can't help but point out the slightly see-through dress which is always a welcome sight for the wardrobe of a hottie like her. Not to mention, around the bottom of the picture, we can see what a great side profile she has; the judges give this one ten points, for sure.
11 That's A Short Dress
When you're about 5'1, we imagine it can be a little difficult to look like you have long legs, but a short dress like that will do the trick every day of the week. The shoes are sexy but they look supremely uncomfortable, which sucks, but these are the things beautiful women go through for our viewing pleasure and we salute them for it. Between the amount of leg it allows her to show off, and the amount of skin it covers on top (not a whole lot), we're big fans of whoever designed this gem of a dress, but of course, we're bigger fans of the babe wearing it. She may be a short metaphorical drink of water, but she clearly knows how to work with what she has.
10 Bright Lights
There may have been a bit too much flash used while this picture being taken, because Anna looks like she is either looking at a bright light or she's so high we need to scrape her off the ceiling. Then again, celebrities make good money and like to party, maybe she was high. She isn't known for being a big party girl, but everyone needs to cut loose from time to time. But back to the stunning image at hand, the little black dress is always a crowd-pleaser and we totally dig the fact that you can kind of see-through the top of it. This goes without saying but see through clothing is one of those magical little tricks that more women should employ in their clothing routine. This may be an overstretch of logic, but we imagine if more women wore see-through attire, there would be less war in the world.
9 Even The Swan Is Interested
If you read the title of this list entry and said quietly to yourself "what swan, all I see is a sexy Anna Kendrick sitting by a pool", you're cool and we like the way you think. But yes, if you can look away from the strikingly good looking poolside Goddess with shocking "chills-down-your-spine" eyes and flawlessly shaped legs, there is a swan in the background, and if that swan is a dude, we imagine he's fantasizing about being a member of our species and trying to get with that fine piece sitting on the side of his pool. Again, and we hate to keep coming back to the absurdity of photoshoots, but why is there a swan in what looks like a backyard swimming pool?
8 At the Beach
If you're a fan of legs and eyes (if you're a straight dude, you probably are and at least should be), you've come to the right place, because Anna Kendrick has both in spades. This picture looks like the end of some outstanding day at the beach, but it also shows off what a bunch of crazies women are. Look at what she has on: a sweater and a sport jacket (likely borrowed) on top, and nothing but a swimsuit bottom on down below. Every dude can relate to this silliness: "I'm cold, no not my legs, they're fine, but the rest of me is FREEZING".
But then again, a woman on the beach with a sweater and a pair of jeans on is nowhere near this sexy.
7 Oops, My Shirt is Undone
Every guy has (hopefully) seen this look before. We also hope that each of our readers has seen this look from a woman comparably hot to Anna Kendrick. This look, by the way, in conjunction with the open shirt, and messy hair, is a non-verbal cue that some adult rated stuff is about to go down. Come to think of it, given how messy her hair is, this look may actually indicate that something adult is about to go down again. Of course, this is from none other than GQ, who should be commended for taking classy, sexy pictures of smoking hot women.
6 The Ol' Plunging Neckline Routine
This should be implied, and most guys will agree with us (which is good, we'd hate to be going out on a limb for this one), the "plunging neckline" is a delightful choice in women's fashion and we could watch necklines plunge all day. Anna can rock this look about as well as just about anyone (it helps to not have gargantuan sweater-puppies that might pop to the side at any time), and while we enjoy checking out her top, this shot also shows off her absurdly pretty eyes.
For the record, she was wearing a pantsuit, and while Hillary Clinton's Presidential campaign may have nearly destroyed the look, Anna Kendrick looked fantastic.
5 No, It's Cool, We Didn't Want To Sit Down, You Stay Right Where You Are
There isn't much out there quite as sexy as a tiny, beautiful woman on a leather couch. She looks like she's wearing a dress made out of shag carpet (which also looks very easy to remove), and the black leather boots are a nice touch too. Forget all that though, and just gaze at the look in her eye. Again we'll say it, this girl can be intimidatingly sexy, which is not an easy feat for someone who stands about five feet tall and likely weighs a hundred pounds soaking wet with extra layers of clothes on.
4 Another One From The GQ Shoot
Again, the guys over at GQ have blessed us with a picture of some kind of semi-clothed stunner with messy hair and an intense look on her face. There is something oddly sexy about women who don't seem to realize how clothes actually work. If you're cold, arms go inside the jacket, and while we're at it, sitting on a radiator is one way to warm up, but putting on pants might be more comfortable. Actually, scratch all that, what you're doing is fine.
If there is something that isn't a turn-on in this shot, it is the underwear, which kind of looks like the kind of granny-panties a wife of a sixty-year-old Harley Davidson enthusiast might wear.
3 We're Speechless
We can't quite tell what kind of look she was going for here (or whoever designed this photoshoot was going for), but we really like it. Anna kind of looks like she was trying to get dressed up classy but decided to just give up halfway through and instead start wrapping herself with cloth. Whatever the intention and inspiration, the result is absolutely beautiful. It's funny how that works, sometimes making something look "effortless" actually takes a metric ton of effort. But again, and we can't stress this enough, what goes into these pictures is a small price to pay for great shots of flawless women.
2 In A Field
Most women out there would never get dolled up like this and then go lay down in a field, unless they were required to for a photoshoot. But we'd like to think that this quirky, fun, interesting, and laid back cutie would do something like this just for fun. Maybe she would, maybe she wouldn't, who really knows?
Based on her hair and what we can see of her dress, Anna looks like she's ready for prom or something like that, but when all is said and done, she looks so good we could care less about context, after all, it's just a shoot, and they generally make no sense.
1 Am I In Heaven?
We imagine that this is the kind of thing most billionaires come home to... but minus the watermelon and rabbit. We actually have no idea what the watermelon and rabbit are doing there; when Anna Kendrick looks like this, you have no need for anything other than her. But back to what is important, the decision for number one on this list was not a difficult one, there could have been no other.
This shot perfectly catches her slim, but gorgeously shaped body, and of course, her face, which is stunning, beautiful, and sexy all at the same time.
