Actress Anna Kendrick isn’t usually posting on social media, but she’s been quite active the past few days as she’s shared her first posts in three months.

The highly-awarded actress is coming off of the release of her latest film, Alice, Darling, and still winning from her directorial debut back in September when it was revealed she would be directing a true crime thriller called The Dating Game.

Though she’s held various roles, Anna is known for being humorous and seemingly easygoing, and a bit quirky, and her latest post shines a light on her fun side.

She shared a couple of photos with her Instagram followers on Thursday as she posed for a quick mirror selfie in what looks like a hotel room.

Anna wore a casual white minidress with dainty embellishments and thin straps and winterized the look with a black turtleneck sweater under the dress.

She brought special attention to her incredibly high heels in the shot, pointing a question to her followers.

Anna Kendricks asks, ‘Is it a crime?’

“I mean, is it wrong to love yourself while wearing stripper heels?? Is it a crime???” She asked in the caption.

Based on the hundreds of thousands of likes from her 22.8 million followers, it doesn’t look like Anna is guilty of any crime here aside from stealing fans’ hearts.

The gorgeous Twilight star tagged in a number of high-class folks who had helped contribute to her look; these included Gucci, fashion designer Giambattista Valli, Walters Faith for her jewelry, and stylist Jordan Johnson Chung.

She posted two pics; one where she gives a big smile into the mirror and another where there’s just a hint of a grin as she looks into her phone.

In a different post, Anna put up another couple of shots in the same outfit, but this time, fans could only see her from the chest upward.

Rather cryptically, she wrote as her caption, “gonna leave my body real quick.”

Steal The Style

Black Satin Square Toe Double Platform Heels by PLT


We’re big fans of Anna Kendrick, and even bigger fans of this outfit! If you don’t have a pair of platform heels on your feet this festive season, what are you waiting for?

Platforms have been big news since last year when designers including Versace and Valentino started the trend and others quickly followed.

Anna’s heels are by Gucci, but lots of retailers have hopped on the platform bandwagon with more affordable styles!

We love this pair by Pretty Little Thing – the satin keeps them looking luxe, while the 5.5” heel will have you standing out from the crowd!

Anna Kendrick’s workout routine

Anna generally doesn’t take herself too seriously and is pretty relatable when it comes to sharing her experiences with trying to be into health and wellness.

She revealed to Shape magazine a couple of years ago that she wants to find the perfect diet and workout routine and be able to do it all the time, but the whole workout-and-diet-routine thing just isn’t for her.

However, she still puts in the work to stay healthy and to make time for herself when she can, as her life is often working.

As for her workouts, she doesn’t usually stick to one thing. She revealed at the time, “Every time I try something new, I’m like, I found it! I found the only workout I’ll ever need! Then I get so obsessed with it that I burn out and have to start over with something new.”

She added that she has gone through a lot of different classes and phases where she’s done different workouts like yoga, pilates, barre classes, and running, and at the time of the interview with Shape, she added that she was really into hiking.

For Anna, it’s important to work out not to change the appearance of her body but to build and maintain her strength and flexibility.

Anna Kendrick stars in new movie Alice, Darling

Anna is starring in a new called Alice, Darling, directed by Mary Nighy, making her directorial debut and co-starring Wunmi Mosaku and Kaniehtiio Horn.

Anna stars as Alice in the role of a young woman who is trapped in an abusive relationship, and two of her friends attempt to stage an intervention to help her out.

Last week Anna attended a special screening of the movie in Los Angeles. And she looked totally fabulous in a long black gown, and again she was helped out by stylist Jordan Johnson Chung.

She posted a pic of her dress to Instagram with the caption, “After 3 months behind the camera in cargo pants, she finally shaved her legs. A whole new woman even.”

Anna also got the opportunity to hang out with Bridesmaids star Paul Feig. Paul sure looked dapper in a tailored suit as she sat on some stairs with Anna for two snaps. One of the pics featured a promo poster for the new movie.

The actress captioned this post, “So grateful to have Paul Feig as a friend and collaborator, and especially grateful he came out to moderate a lovely evening and talk about “Alice, Darling” ❤️❤️❤️ (Plus I always know I can dress up when we hang.)”

Alice, Darling debuted at the Toronto Film Festival in September but is set for a more general release on January 20, 2023.
