This month's Elle is the magazine's very first social media-focused issue, and they've tapped Anna Kendrick, who we'd say is a pretty solid choice. She's got over 2.5 million Twitter followers and an Instagram army about 1.4 million strong.
Elle has published a preview of the article, much of which talks about Kendrick's perceived "hotness." Yup, an accomplished lady, Oscar nominee and Billboard Hot 100 chart topper once again has to talk about how sexy she is to men. SMH:
"This lack of ego, coupled with the stealth hourglass shape, the porcelain skin, and the smart mouth, add up to a very specific kind of sex appeal. Kendrick, who hasn't publicly dated since she and Edgar Wright broke up last year, says she hasn't been hit on since Up in the Air, 'honest to God.' For the 5 million-plus people who have YouTubed her Newcastle Brown Ale Super Bowl ad, this will be hard to buy. In it, the actress is simultaneously sexy and hilarious, twirling her movie-star hair and deadpanning that she's 'approachable hot, like the-hottest-girl-in-your-improv-class-hot.' [@RyBrockington: “Breaking News: I can indeed confirm that @AnnaKendrick47 was the hottest girl in my improv class.”] 'I’ve never felt like I’ve exactly traded on my looks,' the actress says matter-of-factly. 'When I was a teenager, I was an ultralate bloomer, and my mom would say it was a blessing, because it means you never have to wonder if guys are only interested in you because you’ve got boobs. I would have been thrilled if guys were interested in me because of my boobs!' But maybe it's for the best. 'Similarly, I think I’m lucky that I’ve never had a crisis about whether the only reason I’m successful is because I’m crazy hot. It’s not something that crosses my mind.'"
What a coincidence – it hadn't crossed our minds either.
