Anna Kendrick on Finding Prince Charming and Dating Anyone Who Resembles Chris Pine
The 29-year-old actress is featured as the cover girl for Fashion magazine’s February issue, opening up about finding love both on and off screen.
“The idea that Cinderella gets cheated on by her prince is the most twisted and genius concept,” she told the mag before adding what she believe is the go-to signal for what to avoid in a man. “The wrong kind of guy to fall in love with is the guy who will let go of the steering wheel as a joke. A guy who finds it amusing to make you uncomfortable—which is more common than you’d think—is someone you want to avoid.”
Speaking of her prince, would she ever be the type to date someone like Chris Pine (who plays Prince Charming in the film).
“Oh no. Never,” she quickly answers. “I’ve never really gone for the razzle-dazzle types, no quarterbacks, no flashy guys and no Prince Charmings. Chris Pine’s version of Prince Charming is so funny, and so on-point, and very much all style and no substance.”
She recalls the one time she found herself in a situation with someone who was the typical hot guy: “A [date] once picked me up in a Mustang and he was leaning on the hood of it. He was waiting for me and I was inside my apartment, looking out the window, thinking ‘Oh, this is going to go terribly.'”
Valentine’s Day of her life didn’t even include a man at all.
“When I was in my early twenties, I was in L.A. and I had one of those big kind of ‘Anti Valentine’s Day’ dinners with all my single friends which is just a classic move. That went terribly wrong,” she revealed to the magazine. “We tried but none of us could cook—to make pasta with sauce—but it got all sticky and we just had to use like a fork to cut it up and like the chicken was so dry that people couldn’t eat. Cookies got burned too. We ended up ordering pizza and laughing about it.”
