Anna Kendrick can’t stand low-rise jeans

Anna Kendrick is not a fan of the trend for low-rise jeans.

The Pitch Perfect actress always looks polished whenever she steps out for a Hollywood event, often sporting designer gowns or chic ensembles.

However, when it comes to her off-duty style, Anna is all about wearing comfortable athleisure items such as T-shirts and leggings.


“I love the fact that athleticwear is acceptable as a real outfit, and not as just an I’m-running-to-7-Eleven (supermarket) outfit. I can go into the world in a stretch top and sweatpants, and it’s fashion. I live for that,” she said in an interview for the June 2020 issue of U.S. Shape magazine. “I want to tell this generation: Never look back. Please don’t return to the dark age of low-rise jeans. That was a hateful time, and we don’t need to go there again.”

Not only good for running errands in, Anna can also wear her athleisurewear outfits for her exercise sessions. After experimenting with yoga, Pilates, and barre classes over the years, the star is really into hiking.

“Right now, I’m in a hiking phase. I live in a funky hilly area of L.A., and I realised I had to commit to going on a hike because I get my best ideas then. Actually, it’s more like mental clarity. Sometimes I’m in my head too much, and I overanalyse things. When I’m walking, I can work through whatever it is,” the 34-year-old shared. “For a long time, working out meant that the only goal was to change the shape of your body. But now, it’s about the strength and flexibility aspects rather than appearance.”
