Trivia that mentions this person:
Transformers: Dark of the Moon [2011]
  • When Megan Fox dropped out shortly before filming began, Gemma Arterton, Ashley Greene, [?] Brooklyn Decker, [?] Miranda Kerr, [?] Bar Refaeli, Amber Heard, Camilla Belle, Katie Cassidy, [?] Heidi Montag and Anna Kendrick were all rumored to replace her before Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was cast.
    The Twilight Saga: New Moon [2009]
  • Most of Anna Kendrick's dialog when Jessica and Bella leave the movie theater was improvised.
    The Amazing Spider-Man [2012]
  • Ashley Greene, Mia Wasikowska, [?] Scout Taylor-Compton, Teresa Palmer, Amber Heard, Dianna Agron, [?] Brooklyn Decker, [?] Imogen Poots, [?] Lindsay Lohan, Emma Roberts, Emily Browning, Lily Collins, Anna Kendrick, Ophelia Lovibond, [?] Sara Paxton, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, [?] Georgina Haig, Hilary Duff and [?] Dominique McElligott were considered for the role of Gwen Stacy, but were beaten out by Emma Stone. It is interesting to note that one of the other names--Mary Elizabeth Winstead--had played Gwen Grayson (named for Gwen Stacy) in the superhero spoof Sky High.
    Into the Woods [2014]
  • According to Anna Kendrick, the set pieces used for the woods were so big and realistic that she and Chris Pine actually got lost while on the sound stage and had to be rescued by a production assistant.
  • According to Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine was extremely shy about his singing voice and noted that he would hold back during rehearsals. She only heard his actual singing voice when she was eating lunch in the recording studio. She was in a room by herself and she heard a "beautiful, crooning voice" coming from the hallway, but she assumed that it was a singer from a different project since multiple records were being recorded in the studio. She then noticed that the singing wasn't stopping, so she poked her head out to see who it was. To her surprise, she discovered that it was Pine, who didn't know that there was anybody else there. Initially, he wasn't aware of the original Into the Woods play, but wanted to audition just based on the cast and the director. On the night before his singing audition, he decided to google the play and to his horror, found pages of fan message boards and comments, along with passionate positive reviews of the play and Broadway show. This made him so nervous that he didn't sleep at all that night and even briefly considered canceling the meeting with Rob Marshall.
    Independence Day: Resurgence [2016]
  • The announcement of the recasting of Bill Pullman's daughter, played by Mae Whitman in Independence Day, to Maika Monroe was met with much outrage. Fans expressed dismay over the decision across the social media. Most notably, Anna Kendrick, a close friend of Whitman, spoke out against the recasting on Twitter. The speculation being that producers believed Whitman was not "conventionally pretty" enough to reprise her role. Whitman, who has had a very solid acting career including her lead role in 2015's surprise comedy hit The DUFF, has remained mostly silent on the matter. Ross Bagley, who played Dylan Hiller in the original film, was not approached to reprise his role either.
    Twilight [2008]
  • In a 2011 interview with "The A. V. Club," Anna Kendrick said that Jessica, her character in the [Twilight] films, is an idiot.
    Scott Pilgrim vs. the World [2010]
  • Anna Kendrick, as the character Stacey Pilgrim, wears the actual name badge of the real-life Stacey, on whom the comic creator, Bryan Lee O'Malley, based the character. (In one of the DVD commentaries, Kendrick specifically asks that someone add this trivia to IMDb.)
  • Interestingly, in the film Scott Pilgrim is 22 years old and his sister, Stacey Pilgrim, is 18. In real life actor Michael Cera is nearly 3 years younger than actress Anna Kendrick. Likewise, Ellen Wong, who plays 17 year old Knives Chau, is actually 3 years older than Cera.
  • The film cast includes one Oscar winner, Brie Larson, and one Oscar nominee, Anna Kendrick.
