Anna Kendrick is crying less each day

Anna Kendrick is crying less each day

Anna Kendrick has been "crying a little less each day" after the results of the US presidential election earlier this month.

The 31-year-old actress has revealed she measures how well she is coping with the result of the election - which saw controversial Republican candidate Donald Trump beat Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton to the White House - by measuring how long she has spent in tears, and that telling people about it makes them feel "uncomfortable".

Speaking on 'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert' on Tuesday (15.11.16), the 'Pitch Perfect' star said: "I've been measuring my progress in like, I've been crying a little less each day, which is good. And I know maybe that makes people feel uncomfortable, but you've seen me cry in movies, it's nothing new, it's fine.

"But I've been going from laughing to crying and from crying to laughing a lot, so everything's kind of mixed up a little."

And the 'Mr. Right' actress joked that she needed "a man president" when she struggled to open a bottle, but the thought then made her start crying.

She added: "I was trying to open a bottle, I couldn't get a bottle open this morning and I had this thought like 'I guess I really do need a man president' and I kind of laughed to myself, and then started crying, and then laughed."

The brunette beauty isn't sure if her family will celebrate Thanksgiving (24.11.16) this year, as she says she has "one rogue uncle" who may have voted for Donald and could cause tension at the dinner table.

She said: "We've got one rogue uncle. I feel like every family has that one guy where you're like 'What did you do? What did you do?' Yeah, it's going to be interesting."

The news comes after Anna previously tweeted about how she felt like she was in "a nightmare" in the wake of the election result.

She wrote at the time: "Woke up feeling like I'd had a nightmare. Then started crying again. Mantra: I am not alone, we are not alone."
