Anna Kendrick doesn't feel her age

Anna Kendrick feels like a toddler.

The 'Pitch Perfect' actress turns 30 this year but found her 29th birthday more of a milestone, though she still doesn't feel her age.

She said: "I felt different at 29 because 29, to me, is 30. There are times when I still feel like an actual toddler in a grown-up - well, semi grown-up - body.

"But other times I can't wait to actually be 30, just so I can say things like, 'I'm 30. I don't have time for that. F**k off!' "

Anna admits pushing herself to working 14 hours a day on a regular basis is difficult, but she would rather be over-worked than unemployed.

She told the new issue of America's Glamour magazine: "As an actress you're perpetually about to be unemployed. That fear - when you have two parents who worked 9-to-5 jobs and went through periods of being unemployed - is real. Those were not welcome times in my childhood. Working 14 hours a day isn't sustainable, but I prefer it [to doing fewer films]. I might as well be doing the thing that I wanted to do my whole life."

And the 'Up in the Air' actress also spoke of her frustration that women are seen as secondary when it comes to casting, but she believes there are a lot of very talented women in Hollywood.

She said: "There's [a film I'm considering] now where I have to wait for all the male roles to be cast before I can even become a part of the conversation. Part of me gets that. [But] part of me is like, 'What the f**k? You have to cast for females based on who's cast as males?'

"To me, the only explanation is that there are so many f***ing talented girls, and from a business standpoint it's easier to find women to match the men. I totally stand by the belief that there are 10 unbelievably talented women for every role."
