Anna Kendrick has confessed she suffers from road rage.
The diminutive actress admits she often gets angry behind the wheel and sometimes uses bad language, but excuses her tirades by pretending she is preparing for a new movie role.
The Oscar-nominated actress is not proud of her behaviour and even likened herself to the cartoon character Scrappy Doo because she’s so small.
“It’s pathetic because I’m so small I feel like I’m Scrappy Doo in my car, yelling all these terrible things,” she is quoted as saying. “But if anybody ever so much as looks at me I’m like “I was only kidding. I’m preparing for a role!”
The 24-year-old star’s feisty temperament will shock many fans, who know her best as the high school gossip Jessica Stanley in Twilight.
Anna has become one of the sweethearts of Hollywood and is considered by many as the industry’s hottest young talent.
This year she was nominated for an Academy Award for her portrayal of ditzy Natalie Keener in the comedy Up in the Air, which also starred George Clooney.
Also here is an interview of Anna at Time Out Dubai:
Tom Huddleston catches up with Up in the Air – now out on DVD – and Twilight star Anna Kendrick
With her performance in credit crunch comedy ‘Up in the Air’ sparking Oscar buzz and a Golden Globe nomination, a new ‘Twilight’ movie in the works and a supporting role in Edgar Wright’s forthcoming ‘Scott Pilgrim vs the World’, 24-year-old Anna Kendrick is one of 2010’s names to watch. Just don’t call her a star.
Did ‘Up in the Air’ appeal to you as a way of breaking out of the teen-movie ghetto? ‘It’s the first time I’ve played my own age, which was pretty exciting. I’ve played high-school kids my whole life, this time I felt like I was sitting at the grown-ups’ table. And I love strong female characters. It’s a pretty rare thing to find a part this well rounded for a young woman.’
Hollywood actress Anna Kendrick says she is a big fan of the British version of The X Factor.
Speaking at this week’s Glamour Awards in London, the Twilight and Up In The Air actress said that when she was working in the UK last year, she asked the hotel she was staying at to record the show for her.
The 24-year-old also said that she is a big fan of Alexandra Burkle: “She performed her single on the last season and my head just about exploded so I’ve been youtubing her ever since.”
Simon Cowell is currently working on launching The X Factor in the States.
But Anna says she still intends to watch the UK show: “There’s something special about the British version because I get to see all the accents and practise them!”
Fresh off of an overseas flight out of Los Angeles, Anna Kendrick was spotted arriving at Heathrow Airport in London, England on Tuesday (June 8).
The “Twilight Saga” star was accompanied by a few companions, smiling as she headed out to an awaiting car as she embarks on an “Eclipse” promotional trek.
Prior to the London trip, Miss Kendrick was busy racking up another honor at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night.
Anna beat out Chris Pine, Zach Galifianakis, Gabourey Sidibe, Logan Lerman and Quinton Aaron for Best Breakout Star, telling the audience upon receiving her Golden Popcorn trophy, “I am not cool enough to win an MTV Movie Award! So I am not going to mess it up by talking any more than I should.”
