Exciting news for those who read new Anna Kendrick tweets slowly, savoring every character. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actress is adding "author" to her resume, after signing with Touchstone to pen a collection of autobiographical essays, which will, of course, be humorous in nature. Plan to read Kendrick's remarks on her childhood, success in Hollywood, and, most importantly, Pitch Perfect. In the statement from the publishing company, Anna intended to set the bar pretty low, but obviously set the bar pretty high in her efforts:
I’m excited to publish my first book, and because I get uncomfortable when people have high expectations, I'd like to use this opportunity to showcase my ineptitude, pettiness and the frequency with which I embarrass myself.
