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.

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.

  • What made you pursue this role?
    That’s a good question. I should say the role was offered to me over Christmas 2009. I then met with (director) Jonathan Levine, and I just got really excited about the character. At a certain point, I was confused because someone had told me my character was based on a real person and that my dad (in the movie) was a therapist, so I was just a therapist because I thought that I had to be one.
    Then, I found out that wasn’t the case and we just got to build her from the ground up, which was great. I was mostly really excited about doing it because of Will Reiser’s writing, plus the kind of unexpected humor in really honest situations. It wasn’t a cancer movie with dark jokes about cancer. It was just a movie that showed things really honestly, particularly how things could be perversely funny in this situation.
    I liked how vulnerable Katherine was: how thin her facade of confidence was, her kind of softness and vulnerability just at the edge of this confidence. That was really sweet and really exciting because I had just been promoting “Up In The Air,” where I played a really strong character. It was just exciting to play someone who was a little more lost, who was really sympathetic or empathetic, I suppose, and who just wanted to help people but was going about it in all the wrong ways.
