Anna Kendrick talks movies, musicals, and stalkers
HollywoodNews.com: After stealing scenes in “Twilight” and stealing hearts in “Up in the Air,” Anna Kendrick made a memorable appearance as Scott’s barista sister in boyfriend Edgar Wright’s film “Scott Pilgrim”. Now, the 25-year-old actress is all about humility.
“I’ve just been really lucky to work with very good people,” she tells RTE Ten. “In the last year, I’ve turned things down that a year ago I would have killed for. It’s a weird position to be in, because I would rather be on a film set making a movie than not making a movie but I don’t want to keep doing the same role and I tend to get offered the same sort of things.”
But in an ideal world, where does Anna see her career taking her next? “The truth is, I desperately want to do a movie musical but I have to be careful because desperation doesn’t always lead to good choices,” she admits. “I want to do a musical for the right reasons and not just because I’m anxious to perform in one.”
In the meantime, dealing with paparazzi brings a different sort of anxiety. Describing an instance of a paparazzo appearing outside her house, Anna says, “It was essentially a guy in his 40s stalking a girl in her 20s and in most places, that’s bordering on criminal activity. It was definitely really weird but, touch wood, they’ve left me alone after that. I also think that the more boring you are, the less they follow you, so all I had to do was to be myself for a week and they were like, this girl doesn’t do anything cool
