Interview Magazine: Anna Kendrick Takes Her Chances

Anna Kendrick has a knack for playing precocious go-getters. Since breaking out as a pint-sized, Sondheim-loving schemer in 2003?s Camp, she’s won acclaim as a cutthroat high school debate champion in Rocket Science (2007) and as George Clooney’s hyper-ambitious foil in Up in the Air (2009). The latter film also netted Kendrick an Oscar nomination.

But in the new comedy 50/50, Kendrick shines as a very different sort of character. She plays Katherine, a 24-year-old therapist who finds that she’s in over her head when she begins treating Adam (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a 27-year-old with a rare, often deadly form of spinal cancer. Before 50/50?s September 30 release, we chatted with Kendrick about overcoming cuteness, Breaking Dawn: Part 1 (Kendrick plays Jessica, Bella Swan’s very human friend, in the Twilight films), and the ’90s musical she just can’t quit.

HILLARY BUSIS: 50/50?s script is based on screenwriter Will Reiser’s life. What’s that like, knowing you’re working off someone’s personal experience?

And then, I was initially really nervous about meeting Will because I read the script, and the story is so funny—but also, it’s so real and so sad and so scary for whoever must have lived it. And you know that, reading it. So I was nervous to meet him because I thought I was supposed to try to say something profound: “Thank you for sharing your story!” or some horrible thing like that. And I met him and he’s just so lovely and so warm and funny that you just feel like, “Oh, okay, you’re just a real person and I’m allowed to joke around with you.” {Read More}

MTV: Anna Kendrick Is As Excited As You Are To See ‘Breaking Dawn’

“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1? may have brought star Taylor Lautner to tears, but a handful of his cast mates, including Anna Kendrick, haven’t had the pleasure.

When we caught up with the 26-year-old actress at last night’s premiere for her other tearjerker, “50/50,” we were surprised to learn she hadn’t seen the November 18 release.

“I haven’t seen it yet,” Anna admitted. “I’m just as excited as the fans to see it because I haven’t seen any of it myself.”

And then we made her squirm by asking about THE VAMPIRE SEX.

“Oh, yeah. It’s like a whole thing,” Anna conceded. “Now I’m uncomfortable. It’s one thing to read about it…” {Read All}
