Anna was ranked as one of People’s 25 Beauties at 25:
At 25, Kendrick has impressed leading men like George Clooney and Robert Pattinson with both her brains and her beauty. “Anna’s a wonderful breath of fresh air,” Up in the Air director Jason Reitman told Vogue of his Oscar-nominated star. “She’s not afraid of her intelligence.”
Starpulse interviewed producer Effie Brown, who worked with Anna in her breakout film, “Rocket Science,” and had some nice comments about her talent:
Casting is always key in a great indie film – such is the case with the amazing film “Rocket Science” and especially the casting a young future Oscar nominee Anna Kendrick. Did you sense making that film that she was destined to become big?
EB: I have to give it to Jeff Blitz the director – he really spotted it first. He was like, ‘Whoa, whoa, whoa,’ and then we looked again and were like, ‘Wow, you’re right!’ I have to say I’m blessed with this because it’s the same thing with America Ferrera for “Real Women Have Curves.” She did that role, it was a breakout role, then from there “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” and she also did “Ugly Betty” – “Real Women Have Curves” was her first real film. And even though Anna Kendrick did another movie that actually did well called “Camp,” sometimes when you see something what’s great about indie films is you can take more of a chance. You don’t have to go with the flavor of the week and that’s the good thing about independent filmmaking. But Anna Kendrick is fierce, like now we couldn’t probably get her – I’d have to call in a lot of favors! (Laughs) Do you remember when, before you were with George Clooney?!
