Personal Quote:

I do admit that I've never been one to fit in easily to any given pattern. It's not my choice. It's just the way I am. So if the characters I wind up playing are all a bit different, it must be because that's the way I like it. Anna Kendrick is different and she's going to stay that way. See more »


Didn't attend the 83rd Academy Awards ceremony (2011) because she said she had been very overwhelmed on the previous year when she was nominated for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Up in the Air (2009). See more »
