The Daily Grind Video

Anna Kendrick gets red-hot on the cover of ELLE magazine’s July issue.

The Cups singer and Pitch Perfect actress poses poolside with her fiery red hair and a smoking red dress to match. This is the magazine’s first ever “social issue,” so it’s only right for this trending and hilarious star to reveal all about her sex appeal and success.

Anna might be irresistible now, but she admits to ELLE that it wasn’t always that way:

“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.”

But don’t get it wrong, just because Anna’s pretty, doesn’t mean that’s how she became successful.

“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.”

Stay tuned for more info about the Pitch Perfect sequel, and be sure to snag the issue to read the rest of Anna’s interview when it hits stands on June 24th.
