She shot to international fame after her performance as Natalie Keener in the film Up in the Air (2009), for which she received the Academy Awards, BAFTA, Golden Globe, and Screen Actors Guild Awards for Best Supporting Actress. She played 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 William K and Janice Kendrick. Her descent is Scottish, English, and Irish. Her older brother is actor Michael Cooke Kendrick, who appeared in the 2000 production Looking for an Echo. She attended Deering High School in Portland, Maine.

Kendrick began her performing career at the early age of 10 when she took a bus from her hometown to New York City where she could try out for roles. Her first role was as Dinah in the Broadway musical 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 Tony Award and a Drama Desk Award. The Tony Award nomination made her the third-youngest Tony Award nominee ever. Kendrick went on to perform in a number of other productions, including A Little Night Music, in which she played Fredrika Armfeldt in the New York City Opera production. Afterwards, she made her film debut in the 2003 comedy musical Camp. For her portrayal of Fritzi Wagner in this film, she received a nomination for the Independent Spirit Awards Best Debut Performance.

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

Anna's theater singing experience gave 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 disappears. She also starred in Up in the Air, based on Walter Kirn's 2001 book of the same name. For her performance 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 Golden Globes, The Screen Actors Guild, and the Academy Awards.

Kendrick reprised her role as Jessica Stanley in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. She appeared in Edgar Wright's rendition of the graphic novel Scott Pilgrim, the name of the movie being Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Kendrick played Stacey Pilgrim, the sister of the lead character. In 2010, she appeared in LCD Soundsystem's video "Pow Pow" as a "shape-shifter" who collects "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 starred 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 film version of the baby book What to Expect When You're Expecting. She also lent her voice to the character Courtney in the animated movie ParaNorman. She starred in Pitch Perfect as Beca, a rebellious student who learns that she has a voice in her school's female a cappella group, and she is also featured on the film's soundtrack. Kendrick also appeared in the police drama End of Watch, as Janet. In 2012 she appeared in the thriller The Company You Keep.
