The word ‘mindblowing’ gets tossed around a lot, but it’s the only way to describe this video of Anna Kendrick sharing some profound realizations. “Using your laptop to research buying a new one is like asking it to dig its own grave,” the Pitch Perfect 2 star muses in the clip, shot for Glamour magazine.
Most of the revelations are taken from reddit’s genius /rShowerThoughts subreddit, and the video was inspired by Nick Offerman’s take on it from last year. Another one of our favorites: “If I touch my phone in the right places, a pizza will show up at my front door.”
For the Glamour cover story, however, Kendrick got serious, discussing gender inequality in Hollywood. This quote says it all:
“All the films nominated [for a Best Picture Oscar] this year had male leads, like, every single one. So I’m glad that [equality’s] feeling like a bigger issue now … There’s [a film I’m considering] now where I have to wait for all the male roles to be cast before I can even become a part of the conversation. Part of me gets that. [But] part of me is like, ‘What the f--k? You have to cast for females based on who’s cast as males?’ To me, the only explanation is that there are so many f--king talented girls, and from a business standpoint it’s easier to find women to match the men. I totally stand by the belief that there are 10 unbelievably talented women for every role.”
Having Anna Kendrick on the cover of your magazine is the best.
