Anna @ Alice Radio San Francisco

Anna is in San Francisco with the Scott pilgrim cast beginning the press tour. Today they stopped by The Sarah & Vinnie show at Alice Radio and did a cast interview. Anna talks about her brother, not being vegan, and sharing a flask with Meryl Streep at the Academy Awards (!). I’ve added 9 High Quality behind the scene snaps of Anna at Alice, and you can listen to the interview below:

Scott Pilgrim Interviews

Looks like Anna some junket video interviews today with her Scott Pilgrim cast. In the Access Hollywood video Anna derails the rumors that she will be in “Paper Wings” and says she was just standing in for Reece Witherspoon at the reading because Reece is out of town. This makes sense because Anna has been compared to Reece lots acting-wise and was even rumored to be Jason Reitman’s original pick for Natalie Keener in Up in the Air. In the Popsugar interview, Anna talks mainly about working with Michael Cera. I’ve also added one more Access Hollywood video from back at a Pre-Oscar party in March, which I don’t remember seeing before.

Anna Kendrick was recently spotted in the company of A-listers Tom Cruise, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, leaving the Saddle Ranch in West Hollywood, Calif. earlier this month, but rather than jumping on board a major film project, it appears the “Twilight Saga” beauty was simply performing a favor for a friend.

“It was just a table read,” the actress told Access Hollywood of the meet-up, which also included former “Heroes” star Milo Ventimiglia and “Grey’s Anatomy” hunk Eric Dane. “And you know, it’s a movie that’s in production so I’m not really at liberty to talk about it.”

While unable to reveal details of the project, Anna did reveal that a big leading lady was involved.

“I think I can safely say I’m not in it. I’m just standing in for Reese Witherspoon,” she noted. “They just asked me to do it and I was like, ‘Hell, yeah!’ It was fun, it was really fun.”

While she may not be able to add Tom and Will to her list of celebrity co-stars presently, Anna recently added Michael Cera and Jason Schwartzman for the upcoming “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World.”

“I’m Scott’s little sister, Stacey Pilgrim,” Anna told Access. “I mostly just call him whenever he makes a love-related decision to judge him.”

“Stacey thinks of herself as a moral compass,” Anna added of her opinionated character. “But Scott doesn’t listen to her.”

The film, due in theaters on August 13, follows Scott as he fights off new girlfriend Ramona’s seven evil exes, and involves a lot of fighting. Anna, however, managed to avoid physical conflict entirely, leaving her bruise free.

“Everybody looks so bad-a** in the finished product it’s like, ‘Awww! I might have suffered through 14 hours in a harness,” she said. {Access Hollywood}

Anna spoke at Comic-Con Live! From The MySpace & MTV Tower along with Scott Pilgrim cast members Jason Schwartzman and Ellen Wong. Anna spoke about filming Scott Pilgrim and how she got to meet Bryan O’Malley’s sister who her character is based on. She also mentioned that she rocked out at the Metric concert that was on the SDCC stage last night, and has been able to view the other Comic Con panels by disguising herself in a mask :D!

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!

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).
