Anna Kendrick Talks ‘Breaking Dawn’ With iVillage
iVillage talked to Anna Kendrick (Jessica Stanley/Human) recently about her upcoming film 50/50. Anna also talked about Breaking Dawn, the wedding and how Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart deal with the media attention.
Breaking Dawn Part 1 comes out in November, and it’s your last Twilight film. How do you feel?
At the end of the shoot, it felt celebratory. It wasn’t sad. It was like a job well done. It was also like 5 a.m. It was a long night and we were just sort of glad that everyone managed to make it through five movies without losing any toes to frostbite. I’m sure I’ll feel nostalgic once the movie comes out, but mostly it’s exciting that we made it through without any serious injuries.
Everyone’s talking about the wedding scene. What was that like?
There has been so much build-up about it. But I’m sure that if I say a word about it, (the movie company) will have me killed. So, I will just say I hope we look warm because we were all really cold.
You’ve been linked to Jake Gyllenhaal recently in the rumor mill. Is there anything going on between you?
Obviously not. No.
Is it hard dating in the spotlight with new rumors cropping up all the time?
I just don’t talk about it. So, that sort of ends it.
Have you learned anything from Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart about dealing with the media attention?
I have no idea how they stay sane with all that kind of attention. I know, knock wood, I’ve been able to avoid that kind of thing. I’m just in awe of their ability to handle that stuff.
Have you ever had a crazy run-in with a fan?
A girl came up to me in Vancouver once while I was shopping and said, “Are you in the Twilight movies?” And I said yes. And she had this package with her, and she said, “Are you going to see Taylor Lautner soon? Because you have to give this to him.” And I just lied and said, “I don’t know when I’m going to see him.” Because what kind of crazy person carries something around in case she runs into a Twilight cast member? I didn’t know if it was a dead animal. It could have been anything.
She cracks me up! I wonder what it was!
