The 24-year-old actress, who stars in the Twilight Saga, told E! News she’s bringing her mom and brother as dates to the glitzy awards show.
“I’m flying them out. I’m so excited,” Kendrick said Saturday at Zac Posen‘s celebration for his new Z Spoke collection in Beverly Hills. “My mom wants to meet George Clooney.”
While she’s trying to relax and enjoy the awards season, Kendrick admitted she’s been under more stress than usual. She couldn’t even watch the Oscar nomination annoucement.
“I was too nervous to sit and watch the nominations, so I went for a run at five in the morning,” Kendrick said. “I just waited for my roommate to text me. And then it was actually really nice because I was sort of alone in the dark. I kind of wanted to shout, but I didn’t want to wake everyone up at 5:30 in the morning.”
While Kendrick has no problem talking up her Oscar dates, she is keeping mum about her Oscar dress.
“I’m not allowed to talk about what I wear,” Kendrick said. “But I’m going to try it on in a few days and it’s beautiful. I’m really excited about it. It’s a designer that I’ve worn [before].”
Kendrick said that while having the top-secret gown custom-made from a sketch left her feeling a little like a “human mannequin,” she is looking forward to picking out her jewels.
“That’s going to be the fun part,” Kendrick said. “That’s the part where I get to play.”
