BlackBook Mag’ had the opportunity to sit down with Anna Kendrick, who plays Bella Swan’s friend Jessica Stanley in the Twilight Saga. They talked about Anna’s other project: Up In The Air, Fame, Rob and more:
Do you think your supporting role in Twilight can result in backlash from fans of more serious fare? I understand a certain amount of backlash to something that’s really popular. I think particularly this being popular with young women, it takes a certain amount of flack. I mean, I can tell you a lot of the actors in Twilight are incredibly talented. It might be something that’s driven toward young females, but it has no bearing on anybody’s acting chops.
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.
Can you even begin to fathom what Rob is going through? Yeah, I went Comic-Con and I have never seen anything like it. For whatever reason Rob and Twilight kind of flipped the switch in people’s heads, and all they can do is scream. It is really intense but I kind of wanted to see what it was like for myself. I kind of needed to know first-hand because I’d seen these videos from the first Comic-Con they did. I just figured it was a once in a lifetime kind of thing, so I had to see for myself. And it was every bit as intense and terrifying as I thought it was going to be.
EDIT: Here is the photo (which is a lick, not a kiss… hehe)
Anna Kendrick was spotted arriving back in Vancouver to work on her scenes for Eclipse. Anna was just in London in support of her upcoming movie Up In The Air in which she got to work with George Clooney on! (Lucky girl). Also, here is a new clip from Up In The Air that was released which is centered around Anna’s character:
This looks good! Go Anna! I ‘m loving the photos, she looks so fresh after her flight.
