Anna Kendrick is more flattered by women finding her attractive
Anna Kendrick is more validated by the sexual attention she receives from women rather than men.
The 31-year-old actress has become something of a gay icon over the years, thanks to her role in movies such as Camp and a cappella favourite Pitch Perfect and its sequels.
And in an interview with gay magazine The Advocate to promote her new book Scrappy Little Nobody, Anna was asked how susceptible she is to girl crushes, after publicly flirting with stars such as Emily Blunt on social media.
"It’s funny, isn’t it?" Anna replied. "I can’t imagine how that manifests itself for straight men with guy crushes, but when girls have girl crushes, I feel like there’s this sort of puppy love that’s hard to explain. It’s not a grown-up attraction, but it’s not purely platonic admiration either."
Anna also revealed she finds it more of a compliment if a woman admits a girl crush on her than if a man finds her appealing.
"It’s flattering," she said of being the subject of a girl crush. "If a guy wants to f**k you, it’s like, congratulations, you have a vagina and a pulse. So if a girl wants to f**k me, I can actually feel pretty good about that."
Anna can soon be seen reprising her role as Beca in Pitch Perfect 3, with fans of the movies speculating about what the plot will hold for Beca and Brittany Snow's character Chloe.
The chemistry between Beca and Chloe is something that was noticed in the first film and capitalised upon in the sequel, so Anna is hopeful that this storyline will be explored further in the next instalment.
"I mean, our characters are pretty much in a lesbian relationship," she joked. "As far as we’re concerned, they’re secretly in love. We’ve joked that there will be all-out passionate lovemaking in the third movie. Too bad we still need that PG-13 rating!
"If people didn’t think it was cute, we wouldn’t have pushed that chemistry even further in Pitch Perfect 2. The more we have fun with it, the more people seem to like it."
