Anna began her performing career at the age of 10 when she caught a bus from her hometown to New York City so that she could attend auditions. Her initial acting role was as Dinah in the Broadway musical High Society in August 1998 when she was only 12 years old, a performance for which she was awarded the Theatre World Award. She was also nominated for a Drama Desk Award and Tony Award. The Tony Award nomination made her the third-youngest Tony Award nominee ever. Kendrick went on to appear in a number of other stage productions, including A Little Night Music, in which she played Fredrika Armfeldt in the New York City Opera production. Afterwards, she made her motion picture debut in the 2003 musical comedy Camp.

In 2007, Anna had a role in the film Rocket Science, in which she portrayed Ginny Ryerson, a fast-talking high school debater. Although Kendrick said she found the role intimidating and challenging after watching a real national collegiate championship debate, her performance was praised by critics and she was nominated for the Independent Spirit award for Best Supporting Actress. Later that year, Anna auditioned for the role of Jessica Stanley in Twilight, a 2008 film based on the first book of the novel series by Stephenie Meyer. Anna had intended to do auditions with various actors, but she was too sick and had to leave. Fortunately for her, she was brought in for a later session and won the role of Jessica. Kendrick reprised this role in the first three Twilight sequels.

Kendrick's theater singing experience gave her the chance to star in The Marc Pease Experience (2009), where she appears as a high school senior involved in musical theater. She also appeared in the 2009 film Elsewhere, in which she plays her first lead character, a girl whose best friend disappears. She also appeared in the film Up in the Air, based on Walter Kirn's 2001 book of the same name. For her role in Up in the Air, the National Board of Review named her Best Supporting Actress, and she also garnered nominations from numerous other awards including The Screen Actors Guild, The Golden Globes, and the Academy Awards.

She reprised her performance as Jessica Stanley in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. She was featured in Edgar Wright's adaptation of the graphic novel Scott Pilgrim, the name of the movie being Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. In this film, she played Stacey Pilgrim, the sister of the lead character. In 2010, she appeared in LCD Soundsystem's music video "Pow Pow" as a "shape-shifter" who collects "the souls of wicked men". In October 2010, she was at the 2010 Top Glamour Awards based in Mexico where she won the award for "Best International Actress".

In 2011, Anna was featured in the dramatic comedy 50/50, and reprised her role as Jessica Stanley in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. In 2012, she played Rosie in the film version of the baby manual What to Expect When You're Expecting. She also lent her voice to the character Courtney in the stop-motion animated movie ParaNorman.
