Have you met our May cover star yet? It’s only the super-talented actress and GLAMOUR girl crush, Anna Kendrick.
In the next issue of GLAMOUR – out soon – the lovely Anna talks Pitch Perfect 2, why she still finds red carpet posing uncomfortable and how ‘gorgeous’ George Clooney helps to keep her grounded…
Despite her style credentials and pin-up status, Anna says still finds the whole red carpet experience awkward: “Every year that goes by, I think that my on-camera smile is going to get easier…And it’s got worse and worse, to the point where I’m giving that Britney Spears terrified smile, where the lips are upturned, but there’s nothing but fear in the eyes…”
Anna is joining Zac Efron in the upcoming comedy “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” according to Variety.
Anna Kendrick is set to join Zac Efron and Adam DeVine in the 20th Century Fox comedy “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.”
Jake Szymanski is on board to direct, with Chernin Entertainment producing along with Jonathan Levine. Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O’Brien penned the script, the story of two brothers who place an online ad to find dates for a wedding and the ad goes viral.
Daria Cercek is overseeing the project for Fox.
Kendrick is currently filming “The Accountant” opposite Ben Affleck in Atlanta.
Kendrick’s resume is quite diverse, with films ranging from comedies to thrillers like “The Accountant.” She’s also showcased her singing talents in Disney’s “Into the Woods,” Fox Searchlight’s “The Last Five Years” and Universal’s “Pitch Perfect 2″ which bows in May.
HD screen captures from “Into the Woods” have been added to our gallery. The movie was released on Blu-Ray and DVD yesterday so be sure to pick up a copy. Massive thanks to my friend Claudia, who is the webmaster of Christine Baranski Mania!, for donating the captures.
Deadline is reporting that Anna has joined “Table 19” which will reunite her with director Jeffrey Blitz.
Anna Kendrick is reteaming with Rocket Science director Jeffrey Blitz for the comedy Table 19 about a group of strangers who are marooned at the misfits table at a destination wedding. Pic begins shooting next week in Atlanta, GA. 21 Laps and 3311 are producing with the latter financing. Film also stars Craig Robinson, Lisa Kudrow, Stephen Merchant, Tony Revolori, June Squibb, Wyatt Russell and Amanda Crew.
Rocket Science was one of the early arthouse success for Kendrick before her profile was catapulted by Twilight films and her Oscar-nominated best supporting actress turn in 2009’s Up in the Air. The film followed a stuttering teenage boy who overcomes his handicap by joining the high school debate team. Blitz won the directing award at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival and was nominated for the grand jury prize. Rocket Science also received three Independent Spirit Award noms including best first feature, best first screenplay and best supporting female for Kendrick.
Anna graced the cover of Net-A-Porter’s The Edit Magazine back in February. We have added the digital scans and the photoshoot in our gallery. Be sure to head over to Net-A-Porter.com to read the full cover shoot.
On looking forward to maturing in the industry: “I know that things will be more complicated as an older actress, in ways that I can’t anticipate, but I would really enjoy getting to the point where the reason I’m getting roles or not isn’t based on if somebody thinks I’m hot enough. I feel like I’ve always been a character actress, and this is a blip in my career where I’m playing the ingénue. I’ll be a lot more comfortable and get excited when I’m playing women who aren’t supposed to be pretty.”
On Twitter: “I love seeing what people respond to and think is funny; it’s kind of a puzzle. Trying to express yourself in 140 characters can be this little word game. . . Some people play Candy Crush; I try to perfect my tweets.”
George Clooney on Anna: “There’s everything to like about Anna. She’s wildly talented, smart, and great fun to be around. And she’s going to be around for a long time.”
Anna will make an appearance on Lip Sync Battle, as we previously reported, in a battle against “The Hollars” co-star and director John Krasinski. Spike TV released another trailer which features more footage of Anna’s appearance. Be sure to watch it below!
