Anna Kendrick is Glamour’s new cover star. Inside the June issue, the 29-year-old actress discusses everything from developing a sense of humor to the gender bias in Hollywood.
“All the films nominated [for a Best Picture Oscar] this year had male leads,” Kendrick explained. “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.”
