Anna Kendrick, who plays Jessica in the Twilight film series, says she hasn’t been invited to the UK premiere of Eclipse on 1 July.

It’s after last week’s news that the three biggest stars of the vampire saga’s third film wouldn’t be attending.

It’s believed the leading trio, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, are occupied with other work commitments.

But Anna Kendrick says she didn’t deliberately snub the UK premiere, she just wasn’t invited.

She said: “It’s not like I was asked to come to the UK premiere. I think it’s a crazy, crazy press tour so they just put a couple of the major characters through that kind of whirlwind.

“Nobody’s snubbing anybody but certainly it’s not like, ‘I choose not to turn up’ or something.”

The main Twilight stars are said to be recording video messages to be relayed to fans at the UK premiere.

Released on 9 July, Eclipse is the third installment of the franchise which has already featured Twilight and New Moon.

Speaking at the Glamour Women Of The Year Award, Anna Kendrick also denied claims that Twilight was losing its appeal with fans.

The 24-year-old said: “If the noise that I hear every time I mention Twilight around young girls is any indication, then I guess that might not be true.

“But if it is, so be it. I guess it’s the kind of thing that you have no control over.” {BBC}

Anna has jetted from L.A. to London where she was seen in Heathrow Airport and has already attended a new event! The Glamour Women Of The Year Awards were held at Berkeley Square Gardens, London.

Anna looks stunning in a white Gianfranco Ferre dress. Love the eyes! Anna was awarded with the Editor’s Special Award, where she received a trophy, made a speech, and posed with Glamour editor Cindi Leive:

Looks like Anna is indeed in more than just the graduation scene, including the fight scene that these are taken from.

ARRIVAL: Anna’s arrived at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards in Universal City, CA, where she is set to present and is up for Best Break out Star (fingers crossed)! She looks gorgeous in a Zac Posen floral dress.

AWARD: We did it guys! You voted, and Anna WON for Best Breakout Star at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards tonight!

The golden popcorn was presented to Anna by Jonah Hill, Russel Brand, and P. Diddy (who hugged Anna just a little bit longer than appropriate lol). Anna was very gracious and kept her speech short and sweet, noting that she was “not cool enough to receive a trophy (as if)! and laughed that she didn’t want to mess it up by talking more than she needed to. She says she’s going to put the trophy on her coffee table. Congratulations Anna and thank you to all her fans who voted!!!

PRESENTING: I just spotted Anna in a very funny ad on MTV between the show! The ad is for Orbitz and Anna is seen sitting backstage with Aubrey Plaza (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World co-star) looking at the Best MTV WTF moment candidates on a laptop. Anna gives a sentence announcing the awards which is almost entirely bleeped out and gives a big smile. So cute. View in LQ @ Youtube. The Scott Pilgrim cast will be presenting the Best WTF moment, so stay tuned for even more Anna :D!

GALLERY: I’ve added lots of high quality and medium quality photos of Anna at the MTV Movie Awards including Red Carpet, Winning Best Break Out Star, Presenting Best WTF moment and more:

MEDIA: Anna being interviewed on the red carpet pre-show on what to expect:

And here’s a backstage interview Anna did with MTV about deciding whether she she should have gone on stage with her Twilight co-stars when New Moon was named Best Movie of the Year:

I also wanted to note that I saw Anna sitting with Edgar Wright in the audience! Guess it’s still on :D <3!

Hey all, Alexx here from Anna-Kendrick.net. I hope you like our merged Anna site here at Versatile. Holly and I will be working hard to make sure this is your number one Anna source! We will be adding lots to the site including a (complete) Press Archive, Video Archive, Graphics Archive, and Style Section — and of course the latest news, updates & photos! Speaking of photos, check out the brand new Gallery layout made by Holly and Kimberly:

The header photos are from the newly released Nylon Guys Outtakes shot last year. My favorite Anna shoot to date! We have eight untagged photos at the Versatile Gallery :):

I still have a ton of photos and caps to add from Anna-Kendrick.net, so stay tuned!

First of all, I apologize for the lack of updates. The gallery has been updated behind the scenes, but I haven’t updated the main page. I’ve been distracted by other things but know this, I did not forget the site!

Secondly, Versatile has now merged with anna-kendrick.net and I am very pleased to be working with Alexx to make this a much larger source for all the fans. She’s been merging her content and photos with mine.

Last but not least, we have a new main site layout to celebrate the merge which was bought as a birthday present to me from my best friend Michelle and a new gallery layout created by me with coding from Kimberly. I’ve also added the Nylon Guys shoot with many thanks to Jennifer!

We’ve still got a lot of catching up to do but we’re working slowly to get everything organized and situated for everyone.
