Michael Cera also did a hilarious new interview with MTV, where he mentions working with Anna:

. . . When talk turned to his “Scott Pilgrim” co-star Anna Kendrick, Cera readily responds to the question of how he stacks up against Kendrick’s “Up in the Air” leading man, George Clooney.

” ‘Natural transition’ is not the phrase I would use. ‘Handsome transition’ seems to be a better phrase to encapsulate what that lucky girl has experienced,” Cera joked.

“Unfortunately, Anna and I got to work together for only one day,” he continued. “Though she plays my sister in the movie, one of our biggest scenes together takes place over the phone, and we shot our respective sides of the conversation at completely different times on the shooting schedule. She regrets that we weren’t able to spend more time together,” he added. “We got close enough for me to feel comfortable in assuming that.” {MTV}

There should be one remix released every day until Scott Pilgrim Vs. Comic Con on July 23 :D !

Gallery: Glamour UK Scans, Rare Pics

I’ve uploaded and scanned all three pages of Anna in the July issue of Glamour Magazine UK. Included is Anna’s new photo spread and interview for their Glamour Women of the Year Awards, where Anna was awarded ‘The Shooting Star’. There is also a page on beauty tips where Anna is featured. These are untagged, so Please credit us if used.

Scott Pilgrim Feauturette

With the Scott Pilgrim vs. the World release less than a month away (August 13), new promotional stuff has been coming out, including this cool new featurette with interviews from Edgar Wright and some of the cast. There is a tiny new clip of Anna at the .24 mark:

There is also some new fun stuff on the scottpilgrimthemovie.com, as well as new character posters at Shockya.

I’ve also done a major revamp to Anna’s Career section of the site, and made a much more compact list of Anna’s films and television shows, including plot, key cast, photo links and trailers (which have also been added to the Video Archive).

Anna not a Scientologist! New Role?

Anna has insinuated that she is not interested in Scientology after all *phew*! She laughed at the idea on her twitter. Rumors started when candids were taken of Anna leaving a restaurant along with known Scientologists Tom Cruise and Will Smith, among many other stars. A more realistic possibility was that the meeting was a reading for a new film – Paper Wings:

Cruise, Smith, and the other stars were at the Saddle Ranch, which has a mechanical bull in the middle of the restaurant, for a table read of a movie called Paper Wings, which is being developed by Smith’s production company, Overbrook Entertainment.

Our source, who is familiar with the project, explained that they “chose the Saddle Ranch for the table read because the story of the film involves a bull rider and a country singer.”

It should be noted, though, that while those actors were at the reading, they haven’t yet officially signed on to the film. {Gossip Cop}

Hopefully Anna gets the role! Here is some info on the film:

  • Paper Wings is planned for a 2011 release

  • Director is Charles Stone III (Drumline)
  • Plot: “A young rodeo champ (Cruise) struggles to balance his career and a budding romance with an up-and-coming country singer.”
  • The film is being developed by Smith’s production company, Overbrook Entertainment
  • Reece Witherspoon was previously in the talks to play the leading lady (up-and-coming country singer)

More info as it comes :D !

New photoshoot pics, press

I’ve added some new photo shoot images to older shoots, including Black Book and V Magazine:

Magazine updates include the recent US Weekly where Anna states her fave cereal (Kix!), paper magazine, V Magazine and some older interviews and articles. We should be getting some more soon, too!

NY Times: The next generation of Scientologists?


As I was perusing pics of Will, Jada and Tom exiting Saddle Ranch and bidding adieu, I noticed Jenna Elfman saunter out. Then Tate Donovan. Then Tom Skerritt. All very well known Scientologists. That’s when things started to get weird.

After those famous faces exited the building a whole slew of other notable stars walked out of the building generating choruses of, “Oh my god, he/she’s a Scientologist?!?”

People like Milo Ventimiglia, Anna Kendrick, Eric Dane, Chad Michael Murray and “The Big Bang Theory” star Johnny Galecki. Don’t misunderstand me, this in no way suggests these five are believers in L. Ron Hubbard‘s religion — and if they are, there’s nothing wrong with that either….

I’m not buying the Scientology bit, but maybe Anna and the other actors are looking into a new film?!

Press Update

Seth Rogen’s Untitled Cancer Comedy Is Called… LIVE WITH IT:

For a while now Summit Entertainment’s cancer comedy starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, Anna Kendrick, Bryce Dallas Howard, Angelica Huston and Philip Baker Hall, directed by Jonathan Levine (The Wackness) has been.. untitled. But I received info that the current working title for this movie is.. LIVE WITH IT. Based on an incredible real-life experience, LIVE WITH IT is a funny, touching and original story of friendship, love, and survival starring Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anna Kendrick, Bryce Dallas Howard and Angelica Huston. Adam (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is an average guy in his mid-20s when he’s diagnosed with a rare form of terminal cancer. His family and friends – from girl-crazy best buddy Kyle (Seth Rogen), to insecure girlfriend Rachael (Bryce Dallas Howard) and overbearing but loving mom (Angelica Huston) – attempt to help him through this process in the best way they know how…which is reflected in some of the most hilarious and bizarre ways ever.

The story is based on Will Reiser’s true life about his struggle to beat cancer, centering on a 25-year-old who finds out he has the disease. Seth Rogen produces with his writing-producing partner Evan Goldberg (Superbad, Pineapple Express) and Ben Karlin (”The Daily Show With Jon Stewart“). It’s about two men dealing with “friendship, love, and survival – in no particular order.” {ramascreen.com}

‘Scott Pilgrim’ Cast Will Customize Your Clothes At Comic-Con:

The marketing team behind “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World” already set up a system to give out customized Bryan Lee O’Malley-esque avatars. When Comic-Con rolls around in a couple of weeks, however, Michael Cera and Edgar Wright will reportedly be making real-life personalized T-shirts across the street from the convention center.

Beginning on Thursday, July 22, Cera, Wright, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Anna Kendrick will be taking turns operating a “make-your-own-T-shirt stand” somewhere in or near the Hilton Gaslamp, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The promotion will be a part of a campaign called “Scott Pilgrim vs. Comic-Con” that also includes a DJ room and likely many other bells and whistles promoting the movie’s August 13 release date.

At least a few of the cast members will probably have leave Thursday afternoon, I would assume, since the “Scott Pilgrim” panel is scheduled that day in Hall H. I’m also going to go out on a limb and predict that Anna Kendrick will get a few custom “Twilight” T-shirt requests while she’s there, unless the people in charge have already taken preemptive action to ward off such things. {MTV}

Anna Kendrick feels like she is living a “double life” because everything seems so normal when she goes home:

The actress has enjoyed career success after landing a role in Twilight and receiving an Oscar nomination for her performance in Up in the Air. Even though she is a big star in Hollywood, Anna loves returning to her hometown and spending time with her family and friends. Whenever she has a break from acting, the 24-year-old travels to see her loved ones and finds it easy to forget she is a famous actress.

“I feel like I’m living this strange double life because when I go home I get to do the same things I always have,” she is quoted as saying.

Anna is thrilled to have been involved in the successful Twilight film franchise, but is equally relieved it hasn’t had too much of an impact on her personal life. While the movie’s main stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are followed wherever they go, Anna has managed to escape living her life in the public spotlight. The brunette admits she feels sorry for her co-stars because they are constantly hitting the headlines.

“I’m so relieved,” Anna confessed. “I get to be in Twilight and that’s it. I get to be in it and be a part of it but I get to leave the house and live a normal life. I know that’s not the case for Robert or Kristen and I know that’s hard for them.” {musicrooms.net}

Anna is also set to appear on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on July 26, where she will probably be promoting Scott Pilgrim. She was a guest on Craig Ferguson’s show back in January. If you live in the L.A. area, you can even buy tickets to see Anna on the show live!
