Flaunt magazine interviewed Anna while she was in New York doing promotion for her film Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. In addition to chatting about Scott Pilgrim, Up in the Air and her upcoming untitled project with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anna also discussed playing Jessica in The Twilight Saga:
She plays people like her—clever girls, who guys want to date and girls want to hang out with. Her part as Jessica Stanley, the know-it-all best friend of Bella (Kristen Stewart) in the fluff-fest Twilight trilogy is a departure, but her portrayal is so sharp it doesn’t compromise her past indie achievements. “I run my mouth, and people think it’s amusing,” Kendrick grins.
For it is as Jessica Stanley that Kendrick plays the girl in high school that she would have despised. “I don’t know who exactly Jessica comes from,” says Kendrick of her inspiration in preparation for the teenybopper fare, “but there was one girl in particular from my high school. And she was a nightmare.” There is an assertion that as a teenager she “was a little weirdo,” not a cool girl, not a ditz.
