Anna Kendrick: George Clooney Knew To Stay Away!

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 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.

She’s f*cking the director, and now she’s getting lots of attention- coincidence?

# 3

Uhh, not sure where you got that from Bonnie. Jason Reitman is married and I’ve seen nothing to suggest he and Anna have anything going on. She’s actually a really good actress. Stop being a jealous hater because she’s finding success.

Her and Vera Farmiga look absolutely stunning! I love that they are both in white.
Very classy. :)

# 5

Cool I’ve read several reviews where they really praise her performance, I can’t wait to see this movie. She has a very pretty face, I like how she admited she would probably have broken down crying if G.C. had pranked her.

# 7

Wow she is beautiful and has a great body!

# 8

She seriously grew up about half an hour from me. She seems cool though.

# 9

I hope George gets a piece of that action!

George is a lucky man, hope he has her number

Is cCooney a known fool?
