In January 2021, PEOPLE exclusively announced Bill Hader and Anna Kendrick's relationship.

"Anna has been dating Bill quietly for over a year," a source told PEOPLE. "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."

"They are both very private people, and with the pandemic it was easy to keep it quiet," the source added. "They're both hysterical so they must keep each other laughing all of the time. She's really, really happy."

In addition to Kendrick hosting SNL, the two previously shared the screen together in Disney+'s 2019 holiday film Noelle, where they played siblings.
