“50/50″ Cast talking about the movie at Roundtable:
I have like tons of things to add in the site so I’ll start with some videos of Anna and captures of them. Here is another interview from “50/50″ New York Premiere with Brad Blanks:
She likes to bake, she plays Angry Birds in her free time, and she stars alongside three popular names (Joseph-Gordon Levitt, Seth Rogan, and Bryce Dallas Howard) in the new “50/50″ movie that premieres in theatres this Friday. Anna Kendrick, 26, is the red hot actress of this season and she graces the October/November cover of Zooey Magazine. Kendrick was photographed by Christopher Kilkus and styled by Kuris.
The issue also features familiar “Twilight” boys such as Michael Welch, Alex Meraz, Bronson Pelletier, and Guri Weinberg.
The issue will hit more stands – an updated list of bookstores/newsstands will be available on Zooey’s website this weekend!
Anna Kendrick enters our suite at the Park Hyatt in Toronto, which is quite cold, dressed to the nines – an outfit which is quickly covered up by a hotel terrycloth robe.
“It’s freezing in here,” she proclaims and we couldn’t agree more. But what is hot is her performance in 50/50 (watch the 50/50 trailer if you haven’t seen it).
The actress is quickly becoming one of our favorites and in person, she is as gracious as she is talented. Kendrick talks to Movie Fanatic about 50/50, if she feels like a Toronto Film Fest veteran after her star-making turn during Up in the Air’s Toronto run and her emotions as the cameras have shut down on the Twilight saga with the arrival of November’s Breaking Dawn Part 1.
The San Diego Film Festival will celebrate its tenth anniversary this year opening with Jonathan Levine’s cancer dramedy “50/50” Wednesday night (September 28). Actress Anna Kendrick and director Will Reiser will both attend the opening night premiere.
More than 75 feature, short and documentary films will be screened at the festival, including Drake Doremus’ Sundance Best Picture winner “Like Crazy” and Ralph Fiennes’ Shakespeare adaptation “Coriolanus.”
“We could not ask for a better line-up on the celebration of our tenth anniversary,” said festival director Robin Laatz in a statment. “We are extremely excited about the caliber of films that were presented to us and can’t wait for our attendees to see them!”
The 10th San Diego Film Festival runs September 28 – October 2.
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:
