Is Anna Kendrick Gay Or Lesbian? The Untold Truth

Hollywood is a tapestry of human personalities and in the fun weird corner is Anna Kendrick who has become one of the most beloved actresses working in the industry. Aided by the popularity of films like the Pitch Perfect series and A Simple Favor, as well as a Twitter persona that makes her a must follow, the depth of love for Anna has been growing with each new project and tweet. Of course, this love isn’t strictly platonic and a few have wondered if Anna Kendrick is gay or straight.

As equal fans of the actress, we went in search of answers, and here is everything we found about the sexuality of the Pitch Perfect star. Check it out.

Is Anna Kendrick Gay or Lesbian?

Over the years, questions about Anna Kendrick’s sexuality have invaded mainstream conversation, with fans and spectators desperate to know where the actress’ pendulum truly swings. The desperation has not been aided by onscreen chemistry with actresses like Brittany Snow, who played Chloe in Pitch Perfect 2, an onscreen match that earned a Teen Choice Award and sparked several fan fiction stories on various websites.

The film is not the only thing that has sparked questions about whether Anna Kendrick is gay or lesbian. Over the course of her career, right from her teenage years when she appeared in the film, Camp, up to her roles as an adult in films like Into the Woods and A Simple Favor, her filmography is filled with a lot of projects that are popular among members of the gay community.

If you believe in the Kinsey scale, then you also believe that sexuality is a spectrum, and on that spectrum, Anna Kendrick tips towards heterosexuality. According to the actress herself in an interview with The Advocate, she is a ‘straight, cis, Boringface McGee.’

It is a fact that comes as a surprise even to the most hardcore fans of the actress who think of her to be at least bisexual, based on her fashion style and personality trait that suggests she might be a little more fluid on the spectrum.

However, even though Anna Kendrick is not gay, she admits there are fluid aspects of her sexuality, and she is quite comfortable with them, they are just not strong enough for her to have an emotional and romantic love for someone of the same gender.

While the actress is neither gay nor lesbian, she has had a couple of gay experiences outside of her work as an actress. According to her, she kissed a girl in high school, in a nice, not-a-spectacle-for-boys way. She has also admitted to girl crushes on Blake Lively and Emily Blunt. In the movie, A Simple Favor, her character, Stephanie kissed the former, who was playing Emily in the film.

Anna Kendrick, considered a gay icon by members of the LGBTQIA community, is a strong supporter of the community, having grown up with male and female friends who are gay and lesbian.

Is She in a Relationship?

The question then is, if Anna Kendrick is not gay or lesbian, who is she in a heterosexual relationship with? That would be Ben Richardson, a cinematographer whom she has been in a relationship with for more than four years.

The actress is known for keeping her relationship private and when we say private, we mean private. She hardly talks about her personal life. However, rogue paparazzi photos of Ben visiting her when she is on set and other pictures show they have been together for a while.

It is difficult to determine how they met but it is presumed that they met either in 2013 while working on Drinking Buddies, or in 2014 when they worked on Happy Christmas. They have supposedly been together ever since.

Over the years, Anna, along with rumors of being gay, has also been rumored to be in a relationship with actors like Chris Pine and Jake Gyllenhal, but the actress has confirmed nothing.

Prior to dating Ben Richardson, Anna Kendrick was in a relationship with the filmmaker, Edgar Wright. They dated between 2009 and 2013 after they met on the set of the cult film, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Keeping true to her philosophy when it comes to her personal life, there is no published reason why their five-year relationship came to an end.
