Anna Kendrick talks, Eclipse, New Moon, and Breaking Dawn


HitFix got to talk to Anna at the Toronto Film Festival this weekend about her new movie "Up in the Air" and all the Twilight Saga Movies. Here is a bit from the interview:

Q: Ok, the 'Twilight' questions you knew were coming. Did you shoot 'Air' after 'New Moon'?
[Actually] I went to shoot 'New Moon' while I was still shooting 'Up in the Air.' I had to run back and forth.

Q: Was that hard?
It's funny because the characters are so different and I was wrapped up in Natalie world, but Jessica, the character that I play in the series, is such a silly girl it was almost like a little escape to go and just play and just monologue about nothing. Basically, I would go up to Vancouver and shoot a scene where something was [already] written, but [director] Chris Weitz would tell me to keep talking because we had to do all of it in one take as a 'walk and talk' and have it feel the space. So, he'd just tell me to say random stuff and it was like stretching in the middle of doing a marathon.

Q: Have you finished shooting 'Eclipse'?
I filmed a majority of what I do and I have like two more days left. My parts, the human characters get shrunk down [in 'Eclipse']

Q: Do you know if you'll be back for 'Breaking Dawn' if and when those movies happen?
It does feel like to us--when I say 'us' I assume people know I'm referring to the human characters--it feels like it's probably coming to a close. We appear in a dream sequence or one sequence in the book of 'Breaking Dawn' so I don't know if we'll be back for it and we're only sigend up for three, because the three books were only out when we made the first film. So, I don't know that we will be involved in 'Breaking Dawn,' but it's a really fun thing to go back to. Particularly when I go back for this short period of time it feels like i'm going back to summer camp and I'm seeing my friends from summer camp.
