Anna Kendrick draws hundreds of fans for ‘Scrappy Little Nobody’ book signing in Ridgewood

On Monday, funny woman Anna Kendrick made a stop on her book tour at Bookends in Ridgewood to sign copies of her memoir Scrappy Little Nobody. I joined what looked to be hundreds of fans patiently waiting outside in a line that wrapped around the parking lot to meet and greet the Grammy-nominated actress and singer.

They were letting 20 people at a time and after nearly an hour, it was finally time for my group to snag a picture with the Trolls star. The 31-year-old Portland, Maine native was nothing but smiles as she goofed around with guests before they received their exclusive editions of her autobiography graced with her signature.

“Oh my gosh, why would anyone give me their baby,” Anna jokingly and rhetorically asked after an attendee handed over her son for a fun photo-op.

Everyone, myself included, left extremely satisfied knowing the woman from the Pitch Perfect franchise was just as sweet and down-to-earth as we thought she would be.

Check out a few of the fan photos captured at the November 14 event:
