Anna Kendrick pranked her Instagram fans in the most hilarious way possible. Sharing photos from her trip to French Polynesia in September, the 36-year-old posted a selfie with her "island boyfriend" but it wasn't who you'd expect.

Read on to learn about the activities that help her stay in shape, as well as the photographs that prove they work—and don't forget to check out the 30 Top Celebrity Swimsuit Moments to become beach-ready too!

She Knows How To Grab Attention

Making the hilarious reveal via a bikini selfie with her tongue sticking out, Kendrick put her tights abs on show in a checkered pink two-piece from MIMI The Label. She wore a plunging halterneck top with small triangular cups and had thin double straps going around her waist. Her side-tie bottoms were peeking from the lower part of the frame, while her ample decolletage adorned with a K pendant was front and center.

Smiling next to Kendrick was her Pitch Perfect co-star Chrissie Fit. Visibly more clothed, she rocked a low-cut black top and a floral skirt, with the ladies both sporting chic sunglasses and layered necklaces.

"My island boyfriend @chrissiefit," she captioned the upload.

She Dispells Romance Rumors

The post is even more hilarious now that Kendrick has been apparently linked to another just as unlikely romantic interest. According to The Independent, she was recently featured in a clickbait article that suggested she and her openly-gay Noelle co-star Billy Eichner were an item.

Eichner was the one to come across the article, with him and Kendrick trolling the internet as they pretended to come out as a couple on Twitter.

"Hey Anna Kendrick – cats out of the bag,” tweeted Eichner, with Kendrick replying: “We can finally live our truth Billy!"

The actress continued: “You've felt so pressured to seem like a gay man that you made #BrosMovie but you're free now! Our love can flourish!”

She's Off The Market

Their fun banter aside, the Trolls star is actually in a happy relationship and has been "quietly" dating another Noelle co-star for a year and a half. People was the first to break the news in January, announcing that Kendrick had found love alongside Bill Hader, 44.

"Anna has been dating Bill quietly for over a year," a source told the magazine at the time. "They met years ago. She's hosted Saturday Night Live and they've done a movie together, but they got together well after the movie."

The source also explained how the pair managed to keep it hush-hush: "They are both very private people, and with the pandemic it was easy to keep it quiet."

"They're both hysterical so they must keep each other laughing all of the time," the source added. "She's really, really happy."

She Loves Being Active

Apart from juggling her career and love life, the Portland, Maine native is also keeping on top of her fitness routine. The actress told Ellen DeGeneres in 2015 that she ramped up self-care and exercise after turning 30: "It's awful. I hate it! But I feel like, 'Oh, this is how healthy people feel.' Yeah, alright, I get the appeal."

Sharing that her efforts involved "trying to work out and eat some vegetables," she said, via E! Online: "I was really hoping I would just do it as an experiment. And I would feel exactly the same, and I could go back to eating Taco Bell whenever I wanted."

She's Big Into Hiking

Since then, Kendrick has been spicing up her fitness routine with fun workouts that keep her motivated. She's tried everything from yoga to Pilates, barre classes, and running, telling Shape in 2020: "Right now I'm in a hiking phase."

The actress explained: "I live in a funky hilly area of L.A., and I realized I had to commit to going on a hike because I get my best ideas then. Actually, it's more like mental clarity. Sometimes I'm in my head too much, and I overanalyze things. When I'm walking, I can work through whatever it is."

If you too are itching to hit the hiking trails, remember to watch out for ticks. "When hiking or camping, wear shoes, long pants tucked into your socks, a long-sleeved shirt, a hat and gloves," recommends the Mayo Clinic. "Try to stick to trails, and avoid walking through low bushes and long grass."
