Anna Kendrick speaks her mind, especially on Twitter, and she doesn’t really care what you think. “I don’t give a f*ck,” she tells Nylon, referring to her social media habits. “Twitter is only 140 characters. There’s really not that much that I could reveal, then regret later.”

Not even her infamous January 2013 tweet: “Ugh – NEVER going to a Ryan Gosling movie in a theater again. Apparently masturbating in the back row is still considered ‘inappropriate.'” Kendrick tells the magazine, “Thank God I’ve never been in a room with him! I don’t feel embarrassed, though. I’m sure he has a sense of humor. But I’d probably feel like I’d have to address [the tweet], and I’d end up saying something to make it much, much worse.”

She’s also worried about being in the same room as “Girls” star Jemima Kirke, who once gave her a Twitter shout-out. “I’ve never met Jemima, and I hope to never meet her because she’s so cool, and for one moment she thought that I was cool, and I don’t want to blow it,” explains Kendrick.

The actress adds, “But I hope I don’t ever get the feeling that I’m the cool girl. I think self-doubt is healthy. It pushes you, and humbles you, and I would really hate to be one of the three people in the f*cking universe who are actually well-rounded, because then you can’t relate to anybody else’s inner sh*t.”

Self-doubt is a recurring theme with Kendrick. The Into the Woods star says, “Sometimes I meet people who are too confident. I’m like, ‘I don’t even like being around you. You’re boring. Get a neurosis, and then we’ll talk.'”

Her modesty may come from being a “very late bloomer.” Kendrick recalls, “I was the smallest in my class, always telling myself, ‘I’m never getting boobs!’ I remember being comforted by hearing that guys like small boobs and big boobs. They like any boobs! At the time I was like, ‘That is excellent news!'” Now she’s reached a new phrase with dating. “The great torture from my teen years into my mid-20s was trying to get attention from guys who were not interested in me —like, at all,” explains Kendrick. “So I’m happy that now my type is a nice guy who likes me back.” What do you think about what she has to say?
