Raise Your Glass to Anna KendrickGQ "Do you like beer?" Anna Kendrick, the pint-size—pun intended—actress best known for playing control freaks (see: Up in the Air, 50/50), doesn't normally get this question. But today there's good reason: her new comedy, Drinking Buddies, in which she plays one-half of an admirably functional alcoholic couple. Kendrick does in fact enjoy beer—"every single Belgian-style beer"—which brings us to this irresistible follow-up: According to OkCupid's infamous data nugget, beer fans are also more likely to go home with someone on the first date. "Oh my!" she says, mock-scandalized. "I mean, correlation doesn't suggest causality—but that is fuckin' interesting." Another fuckin' interesting correlation: the one that exists between Kendrick's underwear shopping and fans asking for autographs. "There's something deeply embarrassing about being approached when you're holding knickers. And it's happened TWICE!" Knickers? Was she shopping in the nineteenth century? "Like, for bloomers? How humiliating would that be?" Very—especially if it's true what they say about beer drinkers.
