Who is Pitch Perfect Star “Anna Kendrick” Dating Right Now?
The star of Pitch Perfect has made a concerted effort over the years to maintain a high level of discretion regarding her personal life. She is only seen in public with the person she is dating on a very infrequent basis, and she has never been spotted on the red carpet with any of her boyfriends. Having said that, maintaining the secrecy surrounding the Love Life Season 1 star's romantic life has not been an easy task.
When asked by The Sydney Morning Herald how difficult it is to keep something private, Anna Kendrick said, “Well, as far as keeping it private, it isn't easy, as you are proving right now, But that's just always how it's been for me.”
Having said that, Kendrick's past romantic relationships are not entirely “up in the air.” The following is a list of the people that Anna Kendrick has dated according to what we know about her relationships.
Who is Anna Kendrick Dating Right Now?
Bill Hader is currently dating Anna Kendrick. After dating for more than a year, a source close to the ultra-private Hollywood pair revealed to Entertainment Tonight that they are “enjoying their time together.”
The insider said that “Bill and Anna are in love and very happy in their relationship,” Still, the two don't have any plans to tie the knot just yet. “They're in no rush to get engaged and are happy with how things are going.”
“They are both very private people, and with the pandemic it was easy to keep it quiet,” adds the source. “They're both hysterical so they must keep each other laughing all of the time. She's really, really happy.”
When Did They Started Dating?
They became acquainted with one another while working on the 2019 Christmas film Noelle, in which they played siblings. On the other hand, a source who spoke with Us Weekly exclusively in January 2022 revealed that the actors didn't start dating until “they were both single at the same time.”
The former cast member of Saturday Night Live was rumored to be dating Rachel Bilson one month after the movie was released. He and his ex-wife Maggie Carey are the parents of their daughters Hannah, born in 2009, Harper, born in 2012, and Hayley, born in 2014. The couple ended their relationship in July of 2020.
It was love at first laugh. When Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader were just friends, their relationship was full with mutual admiration, fun times, and laughter.
What Was Hader’s Kids Reaction After the Relationship Disclosure?
Even before their relationship, Kendrick was popular among Hader's children.
“When I told [my kids about Noelle], I was like, ‘Hey, I’m reading a script now about this woman who, you know, Santa Claus’ daughter becomes Santa,’” the comedian told Collider in November 2019. “And they went, ‘A girl Santa?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah.’ And they’re like, ‘But does she have a beard?’ And I was like, ‘No, no, no.’” He added of his girls: “They were excited, and I was like, ‘And it’s the girl from Pitch Perfect.’ And they went, ‘Ah!!’”
The Oklahoma native explained his silence about his connection with Kendrick to The Hollywood Reporter in March 2022, saying it was for the benefit of his daughters. “They just want me to be their dad,” he said.
Anna Kendrick Relationship With Edgar Wright
In 2009, after Kendrick's success in the role of Star in Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World, she began dating the film's director, Edgar Wright. The two dated until 2013, when Kendrick moved to Los Angeles and Wright to London, a distance that a source claims contributed to the breakup of their relationship.
Kendrick also said in 2012 that he struggled to deal with the paparazzi and media attention on their relationship: “I started crying immediately [when I saw paparazzi photos with Wright]. It was like someone emailing a picture of you sleeping. It felt scary and dangerous. It still does. I try to ignore it.”
Anna Kendrick and Ben Richardson
While filming Drinking Buddies in 2013, after her breakup with Wright, Kendrick met British-born cinematographer Ben Richardson. They collaborated on “Happy Christmas” in 2014 and “Table 19” in 2017. Their breakup was mutual, but exactly when it occurred is unknown.
Anna Kendrick Relation With Jake Gyllenhaal
There were rumours of a connection between Kendrick and Jake Gyllenhaal when they co-starred in the 2011 police drama End of Watch as a couple, but the two actors never publicly acknowledged their relationship.
At one point during the film's promotional run, Kendrick did reveal to Mario Lopez that Gyllenhaal was his favourite actor in the film “a great kisser. He's a real gentleman.” She said she enjoyed stroking his shaved head on set (hello!) and that she also likes Gyllenhaal “with a little scruff.”
A few months earlier, she had also revealed the identity of Taylor Swift's controversial scarf muse to E! News, saying, “We were shooting [End of Watch] on tiny cameras with very little lighting and a very small crew. There was a lot of improv. It felt incredibly intimate. You're in character all the time because you're shooting all the time. So Jake and I would be holding hands and suddenly we'd be like, ‘Oh, we're not filming.'”
