Academy and Tony Award nominated actress Anna Kendrick makes her writing debut with the hilarious memoir Scrappy Little Nobody.
For those of you who are more familiar with her comedic work in the Pitch Perfect films, her humor continues to be spot on in her writing. Kendrick finds the funny in her worst situations.
What I liked most about this book was how honest Kendrick is about her rise in Hollywood. She said without the Twilight movies (yeah, remember her in those?) she would’ve been Academy Award-nominated Anna Kendrick living on the street in her car. She talks about one time after an awards show, she was sitting on her cheap IKEA bed in front of her cheap IKEA dresser wearing a million dollar dress and it was a jarring feeling.
Final say: Aspiring actors, this is a must read. ★★★★☆
