Anna Kendrick: I Get To Have My Own Journey

Anna Kendrick: I Get To Have My Own Journey

Up In The Air‘s Anna Kendrick is looking gorgeous inside issue #63 of V magazine, on newsstands Thursday, January 14.

“It’s incredibly rare to find a role that’s this juicy written for a young woman,” the 24-year-old actress said. “For the most part, girls my age in movies exist to fall in love with a guy who’s on a journey and she’s just sort of something that happens along the way.

“Here I get to have my own journey,” she added.

Also included in V‘s tribute to up-and-coming actresses are Bryce Dallas Howard and Anna’s co-star Vera Farmiga!

    She was great in Up in the Air

    Yeah she was great. Long career ahead of her. Her and Vera are both so beautiful.

    oh, that ruched pale_nude blouse is beyond gorgeous…

    i never notice this before by she is the girl from twilight

  • marla

    She’s way better actress than stoic Kristen Stewart

  • an

    Anna along with Carey Mulligan is the best under 25 actress.
    Kristen Stewart only knows how to play herself in films.

    kind of like twilight, no?

    I love her she is so cute

  • Gerry

    No actually Twilight is Bella’s story, and is in her voice, you dolt, #7. Sorry, but Kendrick respects Stewart a great deal and her talent (which is saying something since Kristen is 5 years younger than her), she’s spoken of her in other interviews, so all you crazy jealous fangirls can stop your jealous catty spitting, pitting two young actresses against each other, just to try and slam Stewart. Why is Kristen getting the smackdown? Go attack Miley or Vanessa or Leighton Meester — oh wait, Kristen is adored by Rob Pattinson, so she must be punished and maligned every chance you silly shallow JEALOUS ‘mean girls’ get. Karma is a b*tch, and I hope it bites you in the asss for your mean-spirited attacks.

  • anthony

    Love that picture of Bryce

  • nice not cute

    she’s nice, not really cute. but loved her in Twilight.

  • great pic of up n the air cast

    She looks like a smart girl. Best of luck to her

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    yup, she was great in ‘up in the air’. who would of known she’d be the one from those twilight movies to have the big career.
    -
    she’s even kind of cute.

  • dundies

    gerry sit your ass down, it was a joke

  • an

    @Gerry:

    YOu crazy Twi-tard, there are people outside your Twilight fantasy who don’t give a damn about Robsten, Twilight or other of your nonsense. Step out of your secluded fandom and realize that others don’t like the films nor Stewart’s acting.

    Anna Kendrick is one of the best actresses unlike Stewart who is constantly pushed into the spotlight as the “best actress”.

  • MATTY

    Since they’re all pretty in demand infamously cool, what are you talking about? I’d say at this point they can all write their own ticket. Kristen got her mentions as best supporting performances of the year for her role in Adventureland from the NY Times and the LA Times, Rob is doing a period piece in the fall, Taylor just got 7 mil to do some action flick. I think it’s great that Anna got a nod, it’s more than well deserved, she’s a talented young woman – everyone in the Twilight cast is, they weren’t your typical group of actors in a movie like this, to begin with. As for ‘who knew she’s be the one,’ business you’re talking, um, it’s not like they have some window they need to either score a nomination or their careers are over. Kristen is still a teenager, just what do you expect her to do, rack up a sterling indie rep, carry a half billion dollar franchise, and win Oscars. I have no doubt that might be in her future, but even if it isn’t, she’s still one accomplished kid. Who knew Penelope Cruz would win an Oscar before Julianne Moore. Who knew Kate Winslet wouldn’t have an award until almost 15 years after Titanic. Who knew George Clooney would have an Oscar before Leo DiCaprio? Who knew Paul Newman wouldn’t get one until his 70s. That doesn’t mean those people have no less illustrious careers. Stop taking potshots like a bish, and grow up.

  • Plain speaking

    Sorry but Kendrick is ugly.

  • CarrySnodfan

    I love Kristen and I love Anna, and they both respect each other’s careers. Why does it have to be all this ti*t for tat, it’s so stupid, and just indicative of resentful sad ‘mean girls’ who like attacking others out of jealousy.
    .
    If it was ashley greene or nikki reed or any of the other girls, you’d use them to attack Kristen too. Get a life. Kristen is a 19 yr old kid, she doesn’t deserve your wrath just because you hate that she’s fcking Rob Pattinson.

    whoah not a good pic of kendrick. she looks like 40-something Vera Farmiga’s mother. yikes!

  • Brady

    Shut up yikes! Stop beating up on these actresses, you girls are sick. Both Kenrick and Stewart are better women than you’ll ever be.

  • TV test

    very nicely said, Anna. Women’s journeys are rarely portrayed in films and it is good to see that she understands the importance of it.

  • Memei

    Gerry your getting to touchy for someone you don’t know. Your not Kirsten, she doesn’t like you. HAH

  • Just Me

    ok i love Twilight and i love Kristen since i saw her in Speak on Lifetime years ago and as a fan i can say that everyones acting in Twilight is bad
    but Kristen is actually really good in indie movies
    and from the previews ive seen of Remember Me Robs performance seems pretty good

    anyways ive never payed attention to Anna cause her character Jessica is a bit annoying in the films but after seeing Up in The Air
    OH MY GOD she was amazing and i am in love with her right now and im hoping all the rumors that she might get nominated for an Oscar are true cause she deserves it

    I want her to marry me

    she’s cute

    You must be 14 year old or a horny soccer mom, other wise I can’t explain such an idiotic argument.
    You’re insulting these actors by comparing them to talentless Stewart and Pattinson.
    Watching them in Twilight is like watching paint dry.
    She looks stoned and he like a statue stuck in a different reality.

    I love the irony that Kendrick who luckily only played a small part in that Twilight mess now has big chances winning an Oscar.

    Acting is more than lip biting, stuttering and blinking or standing around constipated.

  • jen

    Anna was amazing in Up In The Air. I’m glad to see that she’s been able to get out of the shadows of Twilight and find her own success. I hope the other actors from Twilight will be able to do the same. She seems incredibly humble and really down to earth. I hope she has a lot of success in the future.

  • Claudia

    Anna is incredibly talented and she has already proved it unlike many hyped actors/actresses.
    On top of that she’s polite, friendly, has humour and isn’t known for her personal life but her work.

  • http://dlisted.com lakers fan in boston

    watched her movie today
    i thought it was a really good movie and she wasnt bas as well
    i wasnt really expecting much from her since she came from twilight
    ever since i saw her do that leno interview, ive really liked her, super cute as well =-]

  • LunaKiss

    @marla:

    that’s your opinions…i think anna is all right, kristen is also good.

  • LunaKiss

    @dundies:

    have you read twilight stupid ass, the main role is BELLA!! She’s a female, edward and the rest, are ppl who are along the way …

  • http://majorindulgence.com MajorIndulgence

    She’s getting major accolades for her role in Up In The Air. This is going to propel her upwards very fast.

  • CoryS

    It’s crazy how young these people look. I didn’t know she was 24, she could really pass for 17/18.

  • Magan

    Anna is definitely a better actress than Kristen and i think that Anna will be around for a long time. Don’t get me wrong, Kristen is good, she just doesn’t have the lasting power that Anna has. You only see that in certain actors. The only reason that Kristen is popular is because of Twilight Saga. I think that she will grow with each movie. She’s still young and has alot to learn. With all the actors out there, I think that Kristen is the perfect Bella.

  • http://www.shortpeopledate.com/ shortpeopledate

    I like her body and She seems like someone who knows how to use it to please her friends

  • remember da truth

    OMG, has Twilight SOOOO taken over that this actress who had a great role in an ADULT movie and nailed it has to be part of a thread where people are sniping at another actress in a different movie???

    I haven’t seen teh Twiliight movies, nor do I intend to, so could someone who isn’t obsessed and trying to knock Kristen or get into some sort of Twilight haze tell me what kind of character she played in those teen movies? Is she anything like she was in Up in the Air? she was so controlled and bitchy and narrow-minded that I’m wondering how much range she has.

  • yeah

    She’s beautiful and extremely talented, hope we get to see more of her.

  • http://Doesntmatter@yahoo.com Shouldnt matter

    ugly on the inside and out, Ive met her.
