!!This actress provides examples of:
* AmusingInjuries: Many of her roles.
* CuteClumsyGirl
* DumbBlonde / BrainlessBeauty / TheDitz: Certainly not an airhead in real life, but easily two-thirds of her roles have her playing one of these.
** She plays a sort of parody of her characters in ''Film/LostInTranslation''.
* DyeingForYourArt
** In ''ScaryMovie'', Anna dyed her naturally blonde hair black so that she would more closely resemble Neve Campbell.
** In ''Film/TheDictator'', she dyed her hair brunette and cut it short to give her character a more tough appearance.
* MsFanservice
* PlayingAgainstType: As Polly in ''{{May}}'', a rare horror role.
* RomanceOnTheSet: Was married to Ben Indra, who she met on the set of ''Film/LoversLane''.
* SheReallyCanAct: Tends to get this reaction whenever she appears in a non-slapstick film, particularly her cameo in ''BrokebackMountain'' and her recurring role as herself in ''{{Entourage}}''.
* SlapstickKnowsNoGender
* TypeCasting: Largely voluntary though, and she ''has'' played a few smart characters like the aforementioned Sam Sparks.
