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
