HITFIX talked to Anna Kendrick at the Toronto International Film Festival about movies she has been in and will be in.
Q: OK, the ‘Twilight’ questions you knew were coming. Did you shoot ‘Air’ after ‘New Moon’
[Actually] I went to shoot ‘New Moon’ while I was still shooting ‘Up in the Air.’ I had to run back and forth.
Q: Was that hard?
It’s funny because the characters are so different and I was wrapped up in Natalie world, but Jessica, the character that I play in the series, is such a silly girl it was almost like a little escape to go and just play and just monologue about nothing. Basically, I would go up to Vancouver and shoot a scene where something was [already] written, but [director] Chris Weitz would tell me to keep talking because we had to do all of it in one take as a ‘walk and talk’ and have it feel the space. So, he’d just tell me to say random stuff and it was like stretching in the middle of doing a marathon.
