Anna Kendrick: Nobody's Hit on Me Since 'Up in the Air'

Though Anna Kendrick's career has skyrocketed since her Oscar nomination for her role as Natalie in Up in the Air and since 2012's Pitch Perfect became a surprise hit, the hilarious actress confesses to Elle magazine in a new interview that her amazing success hasn't quite affected her love life.
"Honest to God," she tells the magazine about surprisingly not getting hit on since 2009's Up in the Air. " ... I've never felt like I've exactly traded on my looks."
Anna, 28, has joked about her "approachable hot" looks before -- such as in her popular Newcastle Brown Ale Super Bowl ad, which has been viewed by more than 5 million people on YouTube -- and reveals that she was actually a late bloomer growing up.
"When I was a teenager, I was an ultra-late 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!" she jokes. "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."
Elle magazine's July issue hits newsstands June 24.
