The man candy on Anna Kendrick’s arm at the Oscars next Sunday (March 14) won’t be one of her Twilight co-stars, nor a hot Hollywood love interest. Instead, the Up in the Air star – nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category – plans to bring her brother, Michael.
“I’m flying them out. I’m so excited. My mom wants to meet George Clooney!” Kendrick says.
While she’s trying to enjoy the awards season, Kendrick also admits that she’s finding all of the attention to be overwhelming.
The actress, who is starting to get a taste of the level of fame that co-stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner attract, says she couldn’t even watch the Oscar nomination announcement.
“I was too nervous to sit and watch the nominations, so I went for a run at five in the morning,” Kendrick reveals.
“I just waited for my roommate to text me. And then it was actually really nice, because I was sort of alone in the dark. I kind of wanted to shout, but I didn’t want to wake everyone up at 5:30 in the morning.”
All eyes will be on the emerging talent’s frock choice on the big night, and Kendrick confirms, “I’m not allowed to talk about what I’ll wear, but I’m going to try it on in a few days and it’s beautiful. I’m really excited about it. It’s a designer that I’ve worn [before].”
Picking out her jewels “is going to be the fun part,” Kendrick adds. “That’s the part where I get to play.”
