People like to make fun of the fans who camp out but people have renaissance fairs; people do Civil War re-enactments; people do what they like. I'm tired of hearing people rage on the fans. If you don't like Twilight, don't buy a ticket.
I guess I'm drawn to... I think, even when I read serious scripts, the moments that I connect to are the little glimpses of humor, because, you know, I think every script, no matter how serious it is, has bits of humor in it. Even End of Watch is really funny. So those are the moments where I can kind of see what I can do with it that's different, and I feel like that's the easiest way for me to get inside a character's head, is through the humor, like what sense of humor they have.
[on not being part of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 (2012)] I'm not in it, I don't know anything about it, so I'm excited just to see it, you know, as a normal moviegoer. (August 2012)
(February 2003) Now a senior at Deering High School (Portland, ME), Anna is appearing in A Little Night Music at New York City Opera.
