- [x095] Captures in 2011 - September 26th: “50/50″ New York Premiere – MTV Interview
At age 9, Anna Kendrick’s favorite movie was Life With Mikey, the Michael J. Fox/Nathan Lane comedy about a theatrical agent whose clients are all children. She would watch it over and over and over again. Then one day while she was watching it, she started to cry.
“I realized that wasn’t going to be my life,” she says during a chat at the Toronto International Film Festival, where her latest movie, 50/50, made its premiere.
“That sounds really silly because I was only 9 years old, but that was the first time it occurred to me that ‘when I grow up’ – I live in Maine – ‘I’m not going to be on Broadway. I’m not going to be in movies.’ “
Three years later, at 12, Kendrick was a Tony nominee for best featured actress in a musical for her role as the precocious little sister in a revival of High Society.
I updated the gallery with lots of HQ photos of Anna during “50/50″ New York Premiere and After Party. I’m currently after some red carpet video interviews so if you come across something don’t hesitate to e-mail us.
TORONTO — The last time young Anna Kendrick visited the international film festival here, her performance in “Up in the Air” resulted in a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination, not to mention a win as “Best Breakout Star” at the MTV Movie Awards.
Earlier this month, the now 26-year-old Kendrick came back for the 36th annual festival as a player in “50/50,” starring as an inexperienced therapist assigned to counsel a suitably shaken young man (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) recently diagnosed with a rare form of cancer.
The often amusing and touching film, opening Friday and inspired by screenwriter Will Reiser’s battle with the devastating illness, also features Reiser’s pal, Seth Rogen (doubling as producer), as well as Bryce Dallas Howard and Anjelica Huston.
Among other things, the versatile Kendrick, a Tony Award nominee (for the 1997 musical, “High Society”) discussed her “50/50” adventures, the future, and her role as the chatty Jessica Stanley in the immensely popular “Twilight Saga” during a recent face-to-face interview at the Park-Hyatt Hotel.
Last promo interview for now is the following that Anna did in Dallas some days ago:
