Anna Kendrick, Marie Claire

Even movie stars and princesses face criticism over their looks—just ask Anna Kendrick!

The 29-year-old actress, who stars as Cinderella in the upcoming film Into the Woods, tells Marie Claire's December issue that the "most common thing I get is, 'Am I the only one who doesn't think that Anna Kendrick is pretty?'"

"And you're like, 'No, you're not the only one,'" she responds, "'Arguably, all the boys in my high school agree with you.'"

Your loss, fellas! The Oscar-nominated actress, who has joked before she's not "beer-commercial-babe hot," likes playing roles that aren't always picture perfect. Like, she tells Marie Claire, the "thoughtful and complicated" version of Cinderella she plays in Into the Woods.

"You see what happens after she marries the prince, when you start to face problems in seemingly perfect situations," she explains. "The interesting thing about her is she overthinks things, she's uncertain–we don't see that in most versions. In a lot of ways, I think it's this incredibly brave story. She's neglected and abused her entire life she finally gets love and it's not the kind of love she was looking for, and she stands up for herself."

In the same vein, Anna is standing up for the celebs who fell victim to a nude hacking scandal earlier this year. "I'm so infuriated on behalf of those girls," she says. "And bummed out that people feel like that's something they can do."
