Anna Kendrick is über-talented, gorgeous, and extremely personable. But what really sets the Pitch Perfect actress apart is her warmness and, of course, the uncensored quips she's known for, which give way to a strange, widely accessible type of humor. Needless to say, we've wanted to be Kendrick's BFF for quite some time now, because, honestly, who wouldn't? So we invited the actress-slash-singer to hang (literally — we took trapeze classes with her), try on some Dolce & Gabbana, comb through an entire tray of rings, have a photo shoot, and ultimately become our February cover girl. (Spoiler alert: It was all in an attempt to get her number so we can eat pizza and watch romcoms together.)
Because everyone should experience the weirdo magic that is Anna Kendrick, we made a NYLON TV segment where we talked style icons, Hollywood badasses, Beastie Boys, creepy dreams, and world peace (she's a fan). She also does a little dance, which is pretty amazing. So watch below and see what her IRL-BFF Aubrey Plaza meant when she told us, "She's really something special. She's what America does best."
