LOS ANGELES (AP) — Anna Kendrick just brings something out in fans in the Oscar bleachers that line the red carpet before the show.
The crowd howled its approval when Kendrick, wearing a peach-colored gown, flashed a devil's sign at fans in a saucy move not entirely unexpected of the "Pitch Perfect" actress.
"My heart melted, and I wanted to jump over the barricade, say hi, and sing with her!" gushed UCLA student Emilio Huerta, 19, who was sitting in the stands with his mother, Ofelia Huerta.
"She's so cool and relatable," he added, grinning widely.
