Kendrick appears on the cover of the December 2014 issue of Marie Claire magazine. She talks about having her looks scrutinized, her role in Into the Woods, and on taking a short break.
The character is thoughtful and complicated. You see what happens after she marries the prince, when you start to face problems in seemingly perfect situations. The interesting thing about her is she overthinks things, she’s uncertain – we don’t see that in most versions. In a lot of ways, I think it’s this incredibly brave story. She’s neglected and abused her entire life, she finally gets love and it’s not the kind of love she was looking for, and she stands up for herself.
