When we spoke to our current cover girl Anna Kendrick, who graces our Fall 2012 cover, back in the summer, she had a lot of film premieres on the horizon. At Toronto International Film Festival alone, Anna had Robert Redford’s The Company You Keep and End of Watch opposite Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena. She was also getting ready for the premiere of Pitch Perfect, her first ever big screen musical. Noticeably absent from her upcoming release schedule was, of course, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.
We had the chance to ask Anna how not being including in the final film in the franchise felt: “It’s bittersweet, certainly,” Anna told us. “It’s a lot of responsibility to the fans and to the books. It’s sort of a weight off, but obviously it’s sad that it’s over.”
We were sad not to see Anna on the red carpet with Kristen, Rob, Taylor, Dakota and friends last night at the Los Angeles premiere of Breaking Dawn Part 2, but she’s definitely one of the stars of Twilight films with one of the biggest careers ahead of her. She’s already been nominated for an Oscar for her role in Up in the Air opposite George Clooney, and she’s definitely making a play for more prestigious nominations with films like the aforementioned The Company You Keep. Check out our exclusive interview with Anna to hear more about her upcoming projects like Drinking Buddies here.
