Here is a new interview with Anna Kendrick done by Interview Magazine! She chats about her movie Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, a tiny bit about the Breaking Dawn movie and more.There are also three new pics of Anna which were shot by JACK SIEGEL!
CAROLINE BANKOFF: What was the shooting process for Scott Pilgrim like? Can you tell me a little bit about the process of filming, like working with Michael [Cera] or any stories from the set?
ANNA KENDRICK: It was definitely really kind of odd and technical, because of the way that it looks. The process was definitely unlike anything I’ve ever done before. Like there’s a scene where I’m on the phone with Michael Cera,and we had to do a split screen, so I had a little earpiece in my ear. I was listening to the footage that he’d already shot, and I just had to like fit my lines into the space in between his lines.
BANKOFF: How does the movie look, exactly?
KENDRICK: I mean you know the film is really tight, and it’s really fast editing, so it’s a lot of little shots and it’s just a really like specific way of working because, you know, Edgar [Wright] basically knows that he’s going to use this angle for this line, and that angle for that line, and you shoot it in pieces, like a puzzle. So instead of like shooting an entire scene at a couple of different angles and figuring it out after, you shoot almost line-by-line sometimes. So that was really unusual.
BANKOFF: Did you prepare for that in a specific way, or did you just have to learn it as you were doing it?
KENDRICK: Yeah, it was a trial-by-fire thing. A lot of what I end up liking to do is a reaction to the last thing that I did. I guess the point for me is to try new things.
BANKOFF:Twilight: Eclipse came out earlier this summer. Are those releases extra stressful for you, because they’re so high-profile?
KENDRICK: Now I know what I’m doing, so it’s easier. With any other movie, you’re entering new territory, so it’s quite different to be involved in something where it’s the same characters, and the same people. You know what to expect out of the premieres and the press and stuff. So it’s actually kind of nice, because you don’t get very much routine in this job, and it’s actually sort of interesting. It’s like an annual party or something.
BANKOFF: Have you guys started doing any work on filming…?
KENDRICK: On Breaking Dawn? I know nothing. I literally know nothing.

Michael Sheen (Aro), Ashley Greene’s New Moon co-star , recently caught up with the actress and got to ask her a bunch of questions for her February 2010 feature in Interview Magazine!
SHEEN:You do get described as pixie-like a lot. In my younger days, I used to get described as sort of elf-like. I think it’s probably a lot easier to deal with that if you’re a pretty girl, rather than a sort of average-looking boy.
GREENE:I’m sorry about your adolescence.
SHEEN:Thank you. Well, look, let’s take a second and go back to the beginning, Ashley Greene. You grew up in Jacksonville, Florida. Is that correct?
GREENE:That is correct.
SHEEN:Now tell me about Jacksonville. What’s it like? And could you please sprinkle it with some alligator stories?
GREENE:I’ve only eaten fried alligator tail once.
SHEEN:How was it growing up there? Was school good? Or was it a bit of a trial?
GREENE:It was great. I mean, it was great until I realized that there was more out there. I went to a public high school with a magnet program for law and psychology. But right before my junior year, I decided that I wanted to leave and become an actress, so I graduated early and moved out to L.A. Now that I’m here, I can’t imagine living there.
SHEEN:What happened? You were doing law and psychology?
GREENE:Yeah. And I loved the classes. Everything was kind of set up to go on this course, which my parents absolutely loved; they were like, “Our daughter’s going to go to law school or become a psychologist!” And then out of nowhere, I pulled the acting card on them.
SHEEN:Was it out of nowhere? What was it that started you thinking along those lines?
GREENE:I just, for lack of a better term, fell into it—which I’m sure everyone’s going to hate me for saying.

Not only did New Moon hottie Taylor Lautner give a three-page interview to Interview magazine with an amazing photo spread, but they also shot a great video overview!
This is a MUST MUST MUST watch for all Taylor Lautner fans.
Also, here’s an excerpt from the interview:
MARTIN: So what’s in store for Jacob?
LAUTNER: He’s a lot different than he was before. He transforms mid-story—in the first half, he’s Twilight Jacob. I’m wearing a wig. My character’s very clumsy, outgoing, and friendly. When he transforms into a werewolf, he becomes something very different. It’s like I’m playing a split personality. Which is tricky, because sometimes I’ve had to play pre- and post-transformation Jacob on the same day of filming.
MARTIN: You had to bulk up for the part.
LAUTNER: Absolutely. As soon as I finished filming Twilight, I knew I had to get to work right away; there could be no waiting involved. The day I finished Twilight, I came home and started bulking up. For New Moon, I’m 30 pounds heavier than I was in Twilight.
MARTIN: Do you feel like you’re walking around in a different body?
LAUTNER: I don’t at all. I haven’t noticed much of a change. I grew out of a lot of my clothes, though. I went from a men’s small to a men’s large.
