Anna Kendrick: George Clooney Knew To Stay Away!
Anna Kendrick hits the red carpet in a classy white Jenny Packham confection at the premiere of Paramount Pictures’ new movie, Up In The Air, held at Mann Village Theatre on Monday (November 30) in Westwood, Calif.
The 24-year-old actress has been getting a lot of Oscar buzz for her role in UITA and exclusively had this to share with JustJared.com literally up in the air during a flight from NY to LA:
JJ: What was it like working with George Clooney? Did he pull any pranks on set?
AK: No – I think George understood that I was 23 and from Maine and never been involved in something this big and he went really easy on me. I think, you know, when you’re Matt Damon and Brad Pitt, you can handle being pranked. I think he knew I would’ve broken down crying and embarrassed myself!
JJ: What was your favorite prop from the set?
AK: Good question! I liked my computer. I got to be very mean to my computer – it was very serious typing. (During one scene, she bangs on the keyboard with her fingers.)
JJ: If you had a romantic storyline in another movie, who would you cast?
AK: Oh my goodness! Well, I’ve had a crush on Julian Casablancas from The Strokes since I was fifteen and they do that all the time, put musicians in movies, so I would cast him.
JJ: You started on Broadway in High Society – would you ever return to the stage, and what are your favorite musicals?
AK: My favorite Broadway musical is a show called Parade, which is really dark and there’s not even really a role for me in it, but I love, love, love that show! And I haven’t done it in so long – it’s sort of daunting – but every time I see a show, I want to be back on stage!
Up In The Air, which has garnered an impressive 91% on Rotten Tomatoes, opens in NY/LA this Friday (December 4) and everywhere on Christmas Day!
FYI: Anna accessorized with Neil Lane jewels, a Swarovski clutch and Christian Louboutin shoes.
