Anna Kendrick was "inspiring future drag race challenges" on Instagram as she posted side-by-side photos of herself and Dusty Ray Bottoms wearing the same bikini top. The share was a big hit with fans, with many complimenting her taut figure and saying she killed the look.

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 Shows Love In The Caption

In the image, the Pitch Perfect star, 36, wore a striped black-and-white top with spaghetti straps going around her neck. The low-cut number, which she paired with denim shorts for a casual beachy look, exposed her lean midsection and showed off her small waist. The actress appeared to be sitting in a beach tent and wore her hair styled in pigtails.

Meanwhile, the other photo showed Dusty Ray Bottoms on stage in a glamorous fit that included black high-waist shorts, evening gloves, and a sparkling necklace and hat. As fans will remember, that was her "Alaskan Winter Realness" look in Season 10 of RuPaul's Drag Race.

In the caption, Kendrick showed love to the drag queen, quoting one of her 2018 songs. "NEVER LOVED YA," she wrote. "I see you Miss @dustyray 👀 💋💋💋💋💋💋."

Gets me everytime," replied another user, while others told Kendrick that her post "won the internet."

"You are so cool both of you," a third Instagrammer lavished praise on Kendrick and Dusty Ray Bottoms. "Omg, soo good. Never actually thought I would totally involuntarily lol at your IG," read another comment.

She Loves Hiking

One thing we know about Kendrick is that she loves being active. The actress embarked on a fitness journey after turning 30 and hasn't stopped since. And, while she told Ellen DeGeneres back in 2015 that her workout of choice was "walking vigorously," she has since experimented with yoga, Pilates, barre classes, and running.

More recently, Kendrick has fully embraced hiking, according to her May 2020 cover interview with Shape. "The only thing I've never tried, because I know I would be bad at it, is workouts where they yell at you: 'Come on! Get those knees up!'," she said.

She Tries To Eat More Veggies

Dishing some of her diet tricks to Ellen DeGeneres, Kendrick revealed in her trademark comedic style that she's been trying to incorporate more vegetables in her meals. "And it's awful. I hate it! But I feel like, 'Oh, this is how healthy people feel.' Yeah, alright, I get the appeal," she said, via E! Online.

"I was really hoping I would just do it as an experiment," she continued. "And I would feel exactly the same, and I could go back to eating Taco Bell whenever I wanted."

According to the Mayo Clinic, a diet rich in "plant-based foods, such as whole grains, vegetables, legumes, fruits, nuts, seeds, herbs, and spices," is particularly beneficial for heart health.

"Numerous studies have confirmed that the Mediterranean diet helps prevent heart disease and stroke," states the clinic, noting that the Mediterranean diet involves olive oil as the main source of added fat: "Fish, seafood, dairy and poultry are included in moderation. Red meat and sweets are eaten only occasionally."

She Lives In Leggings

Often dazzling in cute dresses on Instagram, the Trolls and Dummy star's go-to style item is actually the good old-fashioned leggins. "I love the fact that athletic wear is acceptable as a real outfit, and not as just an I'm-running-to-7-Eleven outfit," she told Shape. "I can go into the world in a stretch top and sweatpants, and it's fashion. I live for that."

One thing she's not a fan of? Low-rise jeans. The actress dubbed the fad a "dark age" in fashion in her interview: "That was a hateful time, and we don't need to go there again."
