Blackbook Magazine Interview, Hollywood Reporter Clips

Anna’s done a new interview with Blackbook Magazine, longer and more juicy than the last. Here are some excerpts:

There’s a picture online of Robert Pattinson kissing you. Do people tease you about that?
I have seen fans comment on places that post them, but no one in person has ever said anything but nice things to me about being in Twilight. The fans, when you are removed from them and they’re on the internet, can seem a little scary and overwhelming. Even at the premiere, which was loud and massive and crazy, once you got up to the fans to start signing stuff, they were really warm and respectful.
With Up in the Air getting so much positive buzz, does it feel like you’re approaching a career turning point?
I’ve been pretty lucky in terms of the films I’ve been in, and having a slow and steady build. I have done smaller films that a lot of people in the industry have seen, and I feel sort of fortunate that it hasn’t been this overnight thing. I’m hoping that it continues to be this slow and steady thing so that I can take a deep breath and get used to it.
Are you embracing life in Los Angeles?
I’ve been living here for a few years now, and at first I was really fighting it. When I first got here somebody told me that it takes a year to really embrace it and I think it took me a little bit longer. Growing up back East and coming to L.A. when you’re 18 is quite a culture shock. But yeah, it’s home now and I’ve kind of learned how to navigate. {Anna Kendrick on Robert Pattinson and Impending Stardom}

Smart girl eh? Sounds like she’s not denying the inevitable fame that Up in the Air is bringing, but not letting it get to her head, either. There is also a great new video segment and interview of Anna during the Next Gen Awards, that you can view in HD from The Hollwood Reporter:

MTV Interview: Anna votes for Dakota Fanning for Oscar Nom, People's Choice Awards, Twitter

EDIT: Anna is slated to attend The Governors Awards this Saturday — a new event in which the Academy will suit this years four honorary Oscar winners. Other attendees include Anna’s co-runner Vera Farmiga, Tom Hanks, Abbie Cornish, Ryan Phillippe and some other big names yet to be announced!

The Governors Awards will take place at the Grand Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland this Saturday night. It will not be televised, though it will be filmed; footage will be provided to television and online outlets, and some will likely be shown on the Oscar telecast next March 7. {Hanks, Bening Join Governors Awards Lineup}

And what I ask, would Anna be doing at a pre-awards Oscar ceremony if not to be announced as a nominee, hmmmm? ;) !!!!

The nominees have been chosen for The People’s Choice Awards, and Anna is now an official Breakout Movie Actresscandidate! Anna is up against Emily Osment, Ginnifer Goodwin, Miley Cyrus, and Zoe Saldana. Now get your Anna vote on (that is a command) :)!!

Speaking of awards, MTV has released another clip from their latest press interview with Anna. In this segment, they ask Anna about her picks for Oscar nominees. Despite the hype around Anna’s own pick for Best Supporting Actress, Anna says she’s routing for Dakota Fanning :D! :

“Shouldn’t Dakota Fanning have like 12 at this point?” Anna asked. “She’s one of those people where everyone sort of assumes that she has one. I’ll go with Dakota, I guess.” {The First ‘Twilight’ Cast Member To Win An Oscar? Anna Kendrick’s Voting For Dakota Fanning}

Anna also posted a new Tweet showing her glee in being spoofed in a Saturday Night Live skit parodying Twilight. #2:14 PM Nov 8th from web:

However briefly, I (albeit as Jessica) was spoofed on SNL last night. Best. Day. Ever.

The skit stars Taylor Swift as Bella and the SNL cast as supporting characters, including Jessica at .12 :D:

Anna nominated for People's Choice Award

Anna has been nominated for the 2010 People’s Choice Awards under the ‘Breakout Actress’ category! She is up against quite a few other rising actresses including Abbie Cornish, Carey Mulligan, Emily Osment, Ginnifer Goodwin, Melanie Laurent, Miley Cyrus, Moon Bloodgood, Naturi Naughton, Rashida Jones, Sofia Vassilieva, and Zoe Saldana.

Maybe I’m biased, but I think in terms of acting talent Anna is the clear winner!! Twilight is also up for best movie, while other co-star nominations include Taylor Lautner for Favorite Breakout Actor, Robert Pattinson for Favorite Actor, Kristen Stewart for Favorite Actress, and all three for the Favorite on-screen team.

Anna questioned after New Moon script found in trash!

Posted on Tue, 12 May 2009 04:33:26 by annakendrick

There has been coverage on how Casey Ray, a beauty salon owner, happened to find the scripts for New Moon, and another upcoming Summit film, Memoirs – which Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson is rumored to star in.

Ray found the scripts in the trash outside of a hotel in St. Louis. After contemplating sending them to a tabloid, she returned them to Summit Entertainment, and in return is getting a ticket to both the movies’ premieres.

Anna has been in that same St. Louis hotel while shooting Up in the Air recently, and as a consequence has been linked to the lost scripts. There are rumors that Anna was careless and threw the scripts in the trash can, however, Anna’s spokeswoman, Lisa Perkins, told AP that

Anna would never have left the scripts lying around, nor would she dump them in the trash

A Summit studio representative mentioned they don’t comment on any deals they do, but were thankful that Ray did the right thing by turning in the scripts. {ET Online: ‘Twilight’ Sequel Script Found in St. Louis Trash}

I think that there is no doubt the lost scripts were somehow linked to Anna, however I agree with her rep that Anna would not have just left them lying around and definitely wouldn’t have tossed them in the trash! I’m thinking someone may have known about Anna’s roles and tried to jack the scripts from her hotel room..? At any rate, we’re not sure Anna is connected and I would suppose these rumors are causing her a lot of stress right now, so I’d really hope that her fans can give her all their support :sad:!

Comments
Danielle – I dunno if she can make somethin’ like this but I am pretty sure it can be a joke from someone. It’s a weird, why SOMEONE is stealing the scripts and after that the person throw it into a basket? It’s not a good idea I think :wink:

It’s absolutely weird and annoying situation. But interesting.

Dont’ ya think?

Lauren – Hey, we are all human. If it WAS her then oh well. S**t happens! Thankfully no wrong doing came of it and that is all that matters.

Alexx – Yea, it\\\’s also quite suspicious why the women was snooping around in a trashcan anyways :wassat:?

Also, don\\\’t the scripts they gave actors have their names watermarked into them for that exact same reason..so they can blame it on the actor who lost it? There was no mention of that…

Danielle – I agree with Alexx, absolutely. :D

Adam – Some people hate to see others succeed, and those people like to spread rumors. Just plow through this, and the vultures will move on to their next victim. Your talent will overcome all. Hang in there… like bad Mexican food, this too shall pass :wink:

Jack – I was at the Chinese theater in Hollywood and she showed up and I took a picture with her!! So cool…

Posted on Thu, 22 January 2009 02:38:04 by annakendrick

Casting news for Anna yet again :laughing:! She was recently cast in the Universal adaption of the graphic novel Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.

“Pilgrim” centers on young slacker Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera), who meets the woman of his dreams (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) but finds he can win her heart only by battling and defeating her seven evil ex-boyfriends. {hollywoodreporter.com}

The role Anna will be reprising is Pilgrim’s sister, alongiside Michael Cera as Scott Pilgrim!

I for one, am soo happy for Anna, she is just golden girl this month! Other upcoming AK related dates:

January 15 was the apparent release for Elsewhere, but no promotion yet, probably because it coincides with co-star Tania Raymonde’s new flick.
March 3 Filming for Up in the Air begins in St. Louis
March 21 Twilight DVD is released
March 30 Principal photography begins on Scott Pilgrim vs the World
March ? Production begins on Twilight:New moon

How she can fit this all into her schedule is beyond me:tongue:!
