Unlike her characters in Twilight and Pitch Perfect, it turns out that Anna Kendrick is actually one seriously forward (and, er, and feisty) woman. The evidence? She’s totally sticking up for ladies everywhere by blasting lazy guys in a sexy photoshoot and interview with GQ magazine.
Miss Kendrick, who is promoting her latest film Drinking Buddies, said that guys should seriously consider paying for the first date. “Paying on a first date is a tricky thing because even though it’s meaningless, if a guy doesn’t, or doesn’t offer, it suggests poor judgment more than anything else,” she said. We totally agree.
How does Anna prefer to get to know guys? “If sex is off the table, and you’re like ‘Let’s try to get to know each other,’ I would recommend drinking. Highly.” In other words, if you’re on a date with Anna and she starts drinking – you can get sex off your mind, stat!
From the tone of her interview, we’re guessing Anna has been on her fair share of bad dates. She reportedly split from her director boyfriend of around four years, Edgar Wright, in March this year, and while we’re not sure what her love life has entailed since then, Anna has definitely taken it upon herself to make sure that any potential dates are worded up on what she likes and totally does NOT like.
In need of conversation starters, lads? Anna’s got you sorted. “Two subjects to never bring up on a first date are anything to do with the actual reality of your family, and, you know, liver cancer and how we’ve probably all got it,” she told GQ.
Do you agree with Anna’s dating advice?
