Working Out & Eating Healthy Are So Overrated, Says Anna Kendrick

Anna Kendrick is turning 30 in August, and it has meant saying good-bye to one of her long-standing love affairs. Specifically, her romance with Taco Bell. The actress confessed the end of her dalliance to Ellen DeGeneres. It's in the interest of better health, but Kendrick was still devastated to discover that what everyone told her about eating vegetables and exercising is entirely true.

"I’ve been trying to be more healthy, and ugh, it’s the worst! It’s awful," Kendrick confessed. "The worst part is I feel so much better...I'm trying to work out and eat some vegetables, and it's awful. I hate it! I feel like, 'Oh, this is how healthy people feel. I get the appeal.'" 

It's the exact opposite result she'd hoped her health kick would have. "I was hoping I'd do it as an experiment, and I'd feel exactly the same so I could go back to eating Taco Bell whenever I wanted," Kendrick said. 

Turning 30 really is about facing some essential life truths. When they involve breaking up with Taco Bell, they're that much harder to accept. Anna Kendrick had to learn this lesson the hard way — eating vegetables and her workout of choice, "walking vigorously."
