Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I received a copy through a Goodreads Giveaway!
Going into his book I really liked Anna Kendrick. She's always seemed incredibly down to earth and she makes theatre references. My kind of celebrity! Now after reading this book I can safely say I love Anna Kendrick. She comes off as being self-deprecating, sarcastic, but incredibly kind and endearing. I absolutely loved getting to read some of her behind the scenes stories of her early Broadway days, and her work on Into the Woods (oh yeah and those other non-musical movies too, I guess haha.) My one and only complaint is that I had expected her to mention and give so juicy details about working on my personal favourite movie of hers, The Last Five Years. But hey, she said she's writing her next book when she's 70 so I'll just have to be patient, haha.
And to those non-theatre lovers out there, don't be put off by my review. I'd say the vast majority of the memoir has nothing to do with her musical/theatre days; that's just what made me the most excited as that's what I live for.
If you like Anna Kendrick's hilarious Shower Thoughts video, and are interested in her thoughts on her personality, relationships, and fame, give this a read!
