Anna Kendrick Strips For ‘GQ’ Spread, Talks Drinking
Anna Kendrick, who plays Jill in the new comedy Drinking Buddies opposite New Girl’s Jake Johnson, stripped down for her photo shoot with GQ and talked about her drinking – and underwear shopping – habits in real life.
Kendrick’s character in the film is in a seven-year relationship with Luke (Johnson), who has a flirtatious relationship with his coworker at the brewery Kate (Olivia Wilde). Together, they make quite the impressively functional alcoholic pairing, though they’re trying to get it together to finally get down the aisle.
While Kendrick might not booze the way her onscreen character does, she does enjoy a good brew. In fact, she loves “every single Belgian-style beer,” she told GQ. When the magazine implied that beer fans are easy to get into bed on the first date she replied, “Oh my,” with fake shock, adding, “I mean, correlation doesn’t suggest causality – but that is f—kin’ interesting.”
Twilight may have been the film to expose Kendrick’s scene-stealing potential, but from there she went on to star in Up in the Air, 50/50 and Pitch Perfect – establishing herself as a leading lady with both comedic and dramatic acting chops. With that being said, the 28-year-old actress now gets recognized wherever she goes – sometimes in inconvenient situations.
"There's something deeply embarrassing about being approached when you're holding knickers. And it's happened TWICE!" she revealed to the men’s magazine. "Like, for bloomers? How humiliating would that be?"
Drinking Buddies will be in limited release starting Aug. 23.
