While criticizing her own red carpet skill set, the 29-year-old actress basically said what we’ve all been thinking about Spears over the last several years.

“Every year that goes by, I think that my on-camera smile is going to get easier,” Kendrick says in British Glamours May 2015 issue. “It’s got worse and worse, to the point where I’m giving that Britney Spears terrified smile, where the lips are upturned, but there’s nothing but fear in the eyes” (you know exactly what she’s talking about).


But it’s not just her public appearances she tends to mess up.  Kendrick adds, “I’m also the queen of ruining group photos. All my friends will be smiling and looking really pretty, and I’ll be there pretending to pick my nose—or actually picking my nose. It’s a fine line.”

LOL! In general, the funny girl admits she just doesn’t seek the camera’s attention. “Part of it is because I’m dressed really boring in sweatpants and sneakers, so those pictures just don’t sell,” she admits, reflecting on her daily attire. “You need to be really styled—in the perfect leather jacket and little booties, and have your red lipstick and your coffee—and I haven’t managed that yet. If I’ve got jeans on, it’s a good day.”

However, despite her clothing, Kendrick says she’s really trying to be a mature adult.

“I feel like 29 is just total garbage. I’d rather just be 30 for two years,” she admits. “When I say I’m 29, I think I sound like I’m trying to make sure everybody knows I’m not 30. I look like a teenager. I really like ’50s-style dresses, but they make you look childish, and I don’t want to look like one of those people trying to look like a little schoolgirl. I’m trying to give a message to the world that I am a grown up.”
