Get Aca-cited For Anna Kendrick’s Birthday With These Movie Quotes

Anna Kendrick is an extremely accomplished actress and singer who you may recognize from her starring role in the Pitch Perfect movies or any of her other films–because there are quite a few. Kendrick’s acting career stretches all the way back to her childhood and she actually started out as a child actor in theater productions. In 1998, she was in the Broadway musical High Society, which earned her a Tony Award Nomination for Best Featured Actress in a Musical. Her first role on screen wasn’t until 2009 in the musical comedy Camp.

Today is Anna Kendrick’s birthday, so it’s time to celebrate! What better way is there to do so than taking a look at some of her best movie quotes? Here are a few of my personal favorites.


As Sarah in Elsewhere (2009)

“Jasper: Jeez, I don’t think I’ve gotten 500 messages my entire life!

Sarah: That’s because you don’t have boobs, Jasper.”


As Natalie Keener in Up in the Air (2009)

Lastly, I give you my review of Up in the Air from 2009. First off though, I would like to say a sincere thank you to all my followers who continue to like my posts. I genuinely appreciate it and I hope you do enjoy these and I'm not just filling your feeds. I will definitely show some gratitude soon! Until then, more reviews! Ok, back to Up in the Air. Directed by Jason Reitman and starring George Clooney, we have an unflinching look at the business of firing people. I have been on both ends and there are some real gut punch scenes in this film. With more and more jobs out-sourced or automated, this movie is just as relevant today. Vera Farmiga and Anna Kendrick are excellent scene stealers in this one. There is a particular scene with Kendrick who as part of her training, has to fire someone. It's quite the moving scene. I really like this film and highly recommend it to all. My Score: 8/10 #upintheair #upintheairmovie #jasonreitman #georgeclooney #verafarmiga #annakendrick #jasonbateman #amymorton #melanielynskey #jksimmons #samelliott #dannymcbride #zachgalifianakis #movie #movies #film #filmreview #review #drama #romance

“Hearing the words ‘you’ve been let go’ is never easy change is always scary but consider the following: anybody who ever built an empire, or changed the world, sat where you are now. And it’s because they sat there that they were able to do it.”


As Jessica Stanley in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010)

The Twilight Series (2008-2012) twilight, all of them, is one of the most teenage romance lowkey crappy movies of eternity but i will love nothing more. it is such an emotional rollercoaster and it’s amazing. Bella is an awkward ass chick going to a new school because she’s living with her dad now (divorced parents obvi) and she sees Edward #teamedward this gorgeous beautiful mysterious guy who has a secret, he’s a vampire !!!! and she’s irresistible to him and it’s so amazing, than Jacob comes in and it just gets so complicated and messy and ugh😍11/10 recommend – – – – – #twilight #twilightsaga #twilightnewmoon #twilighteclipse #breakingdawn #breakingdawnpart2 #breakingdawnpart1 #edwardcullen #robertpattinson #jacobblack #taylorlautner #bellaswan #kristenstewart #vampires #werewolf

“When we were five, they asked us what we wanted to be when we grew up. Our answers were things like Astronaut, President or in my case, a Princess. When we were ten, they asked again.  We answered rock star, cowboy or in my case, a gold medalist. But now that we’ve grown up, they wanted a serious answer. Well, how about this – who the hell knows? This isn’t the time to make hard and fast decisions, this is the time to make mistakes. Take the wrong train and get stuck somewhere. Fall in love – a lot. Major in Philosophy because there is no way to make a career out of that. Change your mind and change it again because nothing’s permanent. So make as many mistakes as you can. That way someday when they asked what we wanna be, we won’t have to guess – we’ll know.”


As Stacey Pilgrim in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (2010)

“Maybe next time, we don’t date the girl with eleven evil ex-boyfriends.”


As Katie in 50/50 (2011)

“You can’t change who your parents are. The only thing you can change is how you deal with them.”


As Beca Mitchell in Pitch Perfect (2012)

”I can’t concentrate until you cover your junk.”


As Beca Mitchell in Pitch Perfect 2 (2015)

“Your sweat smells like cinnamon.”


As Jillian Stewart in Get A Job (2016)

“Will Davis: Charlie got a job today.

Jillian Stewart: McDonald’s or Taco Bell?

Charlie: Middle school chemistry teacher.

Jillian Stewart: I weep for our future.”


As Poppy in Trolls (2016)

“Hey, I know it’s not all cupcakes and rainbows, but I’d rather go through life thinking that it mostly is instead of being like you. You don’t sing. You don’t dance. So gray all the time. What happened to you?”


As Beca in Pitch Perfect 3 (2017)

You ready? 💥 – #PitchPerfect #PitchPerfect3 #AnnaKendrick #RebelWilson

“Beca: Are you sure about this?

Fat Amy: Have I ever let you down?

Beca: All the time.

Fat Amy: What?

Beca: You’re very unreliable. It’s like one of the hallmarks of your personality.

Fat Amy: You’re not remembering all the times I’ve been awesome.”
