“I’ve never felt like I’ve exactly traded on my looks,” Kendrick tells Elle.”When I was a teenager, I was an ultra-late bloomer, and my mom would say it was a blessing, because it means you never have to wonder if guys are only interested in you because you’ve got b**bs. I would have been thrilled if guys were interested in me because of my b**bs!”
The actress has cashed in on her impressive acting and singing abilities, but much of her self-deprecating charm — and comedic talent — has made Kendrick “approachable hot,” as she previously described herself, especially in connecting with fans on social media.
Kendrick calls herself the “hottest girl in your improv class” in her now-viral Newcastle Brown Ale Super Bowl ad.”I think I’m lucky that I’ve never had a crisis about whether the only reason I’m successful is because I’m crazy hot,” she tells Elle. “It’s not something that crosses my mind.”
