EXCLUSIVE! Former Twilight star Anna Kendrick talks to Marie Claire about not starring in the final film
Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 hit London last night with Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson both stunning at the film’s premiere in Leicester Square, while the cast reunited on the red carpet, someone who was notably absent was Anna Kendrick, who played Jessica Stanley.
We caught up with Anna as she promoted her latest film End of Watch, and asked how she felt about being left out of the final Twilight film.
Anna said: ‘It’s obviously a little bit bittersweet but mostly I’m just excited to see the final film as a fan and see what they’ve done and the way they’ve traversed this rollercoaster.
‘The fact of the matter is I usually shoot for just a week and I feel lucky to come in and do my little bit.’
Anna may have played down her part, but she’s still very much part of the cast adding: ‘I always feel welcome [with the Twilight cast] it’s like going back to summer camp, I still feel part of the family.’
Unlike Kristen and Robert, Anna was one Twilight star who managed to escape the huge interest in her private life, something she feel very fortunate to have.
She added: ‘It would be my preference [to be private] but you really don’t have a lot of control over that.
‘You don’t know what [films are] going to be a success, I appreciate that there’s not a lot I can do proactively to change that, it’s all kind of luck of the draw.’
But is she sympathetic towards her Twilight co-stars, Robert and Kristen who are subjected to so much media intrusion?
‘Yeah I do feel sorry [for them],’ Anna told us. But Anna isn’t focusing her time on that, instead she’s gearing up for the release of End of Watch where she stars alongside Jake Gyllenhaal.
