If you've ever wondered if movie stars are just like us, Anna Kendrick's funny and self-deprecating memoir, Scrappy Little Nobody, tells us definitively: sometimes. Though she's built a successful acting career with roles in Pitch Perfect, Up in the Air, Twilight, and Into the Woods, Scrappy describes her childhood strategy to "“keep the crazy inside my head where it belonged," a resolution that resulted in "10 percent defiant" behavior and a book full of honest, amusing stories.
Kendrick also has excellent taste in reading. See her favorite books of the year below (including last year's most popular choice among celebrities, So You've Been Publicly Shamed), and look here for more celebrity favorites.
