The 'Pitch Perfect' star admits she still gets "butterflies" driving down some streets in Sunset Strip as she remembered how she felt in the beginning.

She said: "There are still streets that I go down that give me butterflies, because the city really intimidated me when I first arrived there. There's a certain section of Sunset Strip that I remember driving on and being like, 'Oh my God, I will never belong here.' My pulse goes through the roof every time I drive on it. I thought if I stepped out of the car, people would know and they'd be like, 'Oh, she's faking it.'"

And the 34-year-old actress loves being so "anonymous" in New York.

Speaking to The Times magazine, she added: "In LA, to a certain extent. Nobody gives a s**t, but I can sometimes feel a bit of a shift in people. Actually, it's funny being here in New York and realising that in the evenings, if I go out walking, I'm really anonymous ... I forgot how nice it is not to have to tilt my head down or wear a baseball hat."

Meanwhile, Anna previously revealed she never had "a backup plan".

Admitting she had no idea what she would be doing if she hadn't carved out a successful career in Hollywood, she said: "I got some terrible advice when I was really young, which was not to have a backup plan. I had this singularity of focus. I never considered doing something else."
