Anna Kendrick did not have a very good time filming “Twilight,” thanks for asking. In a video interview with Vanity Fair, she compared her time as Bella Swan’s mortal friend Jessica in the vampire movie series to a “hostage situation”. Kendrick said she remembers “being so cold and miserable” while on set in Portland, Oregon. “I just remember … feeling like, ‘You know, this is a really great group of people and I’m sure that we would be friends at a different time, but I want to murder everyone’”. In spite of the difficult conditions, she managed to bond with her fellow actors. “There was something about it, like if you go through some trauma event … Like you imagine people who survive a hostage situation, and you’re kind of bonded for life”. The series ended on a high note for Kendrick, though. Her final scene came in “Breaking Dawn — Part 1” at Bella and Edward Cullen’s wedding. She says she had it easier than her costars, who had been working on the grueling film set for months. “You’re in like half-frozen mud … everybody else has been giving their blood, sweat and tears to the project for months … I show up at the end and I’m like, 'Guys, we did it. It’s over'". Here’s to hoping Kendrick’s future movies are filmed in a warmer, dryer climate
