Anna Kendrick was delivered to this planet on August 9, 1985. She is an American actress and singer. Anna rose to international fame after her performance as Natalie Keener in Up in the Air (2009), for which she was nominated for the Academy Awards, BAFTA, Golden Globe, and Screen Actors Guild Awards for Best Supporting Actress. She portrayed Dinah Lord in the Broadway production High Society (1998), for which she was nominated for a Tony Award. Her other notable roles include Fritzi Wagner in Camp (2003), Jessica Stanley in The Twilight Saga (2008-11), Stacey Pilgrim in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010), Beca Mitchell in Pitch Perfect (2012), and Janet in End of Watch (2012).

Kendrick was born in the state of Maine, the daughter of Janice and William K. Kendrick. Her descent is Scottish, English, and Irish. She has an older brother, actor Michael Cooke Kendrick. He appeared in the 2000 movie Looking for an Echo. She attended Deering High School in her hometown.

Kendrick began her career at the early age of 10 when she took a bus from her hometown to New York City where she could attend auditions. Kendrick's first acting role was as Dinah in the Broadway production High Society in the summer of 1998 when she was 12 years old, a role for which she won the Theatre World Award. She was also nominated for a Drama Desk Award and Tony Award. The Tony Award nomination made her the third-youngest Tony Award nominee ever. Kendrick went on to appear in a number of other productions, including A Little Night Music, playing Fredrika Armfeldt in the New York City Opera production. Afterwards, she made her motion picture debut in the 2003 comedy musical Camp. Due to her portrayal of Fritzi Wagner in this film, she was nominated for the Independent Spirit Awards Best Debut Performance.

In 2007, Anna appeared in her next film, Rocket Science, in which she played Ginny Ryerson, a fast-talking high school debater. Although Kendrick said she found the role challenging and intimidating after watching a real national collegiate championship debate, her performance was praised by critics and she was nominated for an Independent Spirit award for Best Supporting Actress. Later that year, Anna auditioned for the part of Jessica Stanley in the film adaptation of Twilight, a 2008 film based on the initial book of the novel series by Stephenie Meyer. She had intended to do auditions with various actors, but she was too ill and had to leave prematurely. Fortunately for her, she was able to come back for a later session where she was given the role of Jessica. Kendrick reprised this role in the first three Twilight sequels.

Anna's singing experience in theater won her the opportunity to star in The Marc Pease Experience (2009), where she appears as a high school senior involved in musical theater. She also appeared in the 2009 film Elsewhere, in which she plays her first lead character, a girl whose best friend goes missing. She also appeared in Up in the Air, based on Walter Kirn's 2001 book of the same name. For her role in Up in the Air, the National Board of Review named her Best Supporting Actress, and she also garnered nominations from numerous other awards including The Screen Actors Guild, The Golden Globes, and the Academy Awards.

She reprised her role as Jessica Stanley in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. She appeared in Edgar Wright's adaptation of the graphic novel Scott Pilgrim, the name of the movie being Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. In this film, she played Stacey Pilgrim, the sister of the lead character. In 2010, she appeared in LCD Soundsystem's music video "Pow Pow" as a "shape-shifter" who gathers "the souls of wicked men". In October 2010, she attended the 2010 Top Glamour Awards based in Mexico where she was given the award for "Best International Actress".

In 2011, she was featured in the dramatic comedy 50/50, and reprised her role as Jessica Stanley in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. In 2012, she was Rosie in the screen adaptation of the baby guide What to Expect When You're Expecting. She also lent her voice to the character Courtney in the animated film ParaNorman. She starred in Pitch Perfect as Beca, a rebellious college student who discovers her voice in her school's all-women a cappella group, and she is also featured on the film's soundtrack. Kendrick was also in the police drama End of Watch, playing Janet. In 2012 she appeared in the thriller The Company You Keep.

In 2013, Anna scored a hit song with "Cups (When I'm Gone)" from the film Pitch Perfect which became a No. 2 hit on Billboard's Adult Pop chart. Anna also hosted SNL on April 5, 2014 with musical guest Pharrell.
