Who is Anna Kendrick?
Born on August 9, 1985 in Portland, Maine, Anna Kendrick embarked on an acting career at a young age, earning a Tony Award nomination for her work on the Broadway musical High Society in 1998, before she made her film debut in 2003’s Camp, according to Biography.com.
After Anna’s role in the independent comedy Rocket Science, she showed off her vocal talents on Viva Laughlin, a short-lived musical drama before winning a supporting role in the million-dollar franchise Twilight.
In the films based on Stephenie Meyer’s teenage vampire novels, Anna played Kristen Stewart’s character Bella’s friend and went on to reprise this role in the sequels New Moon, released in 2009 and Eclipse, which came out a year later.

Anna Kendrick boyfriend
Anna Kendrick is very private about her relationships and speaking to Cosmopolitan, the actress revealed that there was a three year period during which she did not date anyone.
‘There was definitely a period in my life – I think from 19 to 21 or 22 – where I just didn’t date or go out much or hook up or anything.
‘I think [back then] I felt a little bit awkward around the idea of dating, the idea of going to dinner and seeing if you have some kind of love connection still seems very silly and formal to me.’ However, since then, Anna has been linked to Jake Gyllenhaal and Edgar Wright.
Anna also dated Zac Efron for a spell, but since 2014, she has been dating cinematographer Ben Richardson and as Cosmo described the relationship, ‘they are probably the most low-key lovers you’ll ever encounter’.
Despite very rarely being seen together, he has worked on a number of Anna’s films, including Drinking Buddies and Happy Christmas. Ben has also worked on The Fault in Our Stars and Beasts of the Southern Wild.
