Anna Kendrick is an American actress and singer. She became world-famous for her role as "Natalie Keener" in Up in the Air, for which she received an Oscar, BAFTA and Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress.
Anna Kendrick has been an actress since childhood. She got her first Broadway role in High Society in 1998 at the age of twelve and received her first Tony Award nomination months later. She played in many other plays until she finally made her film debut in 2003 with the film Star Camp.
However, Hollywood critics did not notice Anna Kendrick until six years later when she starred opposite George Clooney in Up in the Air. For this, she received her first Oscar nomination for best supporting actress.
Anna also starred in such films as Scott Pilgrim Vs the Rest of the World and the Twilight saga, which has changed a lot since then. She became known to a wide audience through the teen musical comedy "Pitch Perfect", in which she played a DJ who joins an a cappella group.
The film spawned two popular sequels and gave Kendrick her first single called "Cups," which was on the Billboard pop charts for several weeks. Anna continues to work on several projects for Netflix, Apple TV, Paramount and Disney. She has been in a relationship with cameraman Ben Richardson since 2014.
