Ellen: Anna Kendrick First Time Homeowner
Maybe you’ve seen her in 50/50 or Up In The Air. But if you don’t know her name yet, you will soon. Anna Kendrick’s star is rising, and her latest film is the movie version of the timeless baby book What To Expect When You’re Expecting.
To celebrate her continuing success, Anna Kendrick recently bought a new house. She just moved in about a week ago, and there are still repairs and construction going on.
“Right now I have a mattress on the floor, and just suitcases–well, cardboard boxes against the wall,” she said. “It’s non-stop glamour for me.”
Ellen asked why she didn’t have all the work done before she moved in. I guess she will have to get realty advice from Ellen the next time she’s thinking about moving.
“When you move into a new house, you discover every day, this faucet’s leaky or this light’s out, and now it’s my responsibility, which is terrifying,” she said.
Ellen: Anna Kendrick Interior Design
Anna Kendrick has an interior design plan, though. She’s been collecting design magazines for inspiration, and one of them is the Architectural Digest spread featuring Ellen DeGeneres’s house.
“It’s my passion. I really love doing houses. I love decorating, and I love buying houses,” Ellen said, like only a multimillionaire can. Anna saw and jumped at the opportunity to recruit Ellen as her decorator, and Ellen accepted. “If that’s your vision board, I would do your house,” the talk show host agreed.
Maybe when she’s ready for a next chapter, Ellen can have an interior design show. Anna said it would save her from asking questions at restaurants and other public places about design and decor, which she’s sure bore her friends.
Ellen: Anna Kendrick LA Vs New York
Anna is a transplant to Los Angeles from the East Coast, and she likes it so far. “People here are really nice, which is great, but it froze me,” she said. “Just this week, I was in a juice bar and there was this really nice guy with his dog, and he was talking to everybody…. On the East Coast, that’s mental illness. That’s not someone being friendly, so I’m not sure what’s happening.”
Ellen said the friendly attitudes can take some getting used to.
Ellen: Anna Kendrick What To Expect When You’re Expecting Movie
The new movie What To Expect When You’re Expecting is full of famous names, including Anna Kendrick’s co-star, Chace Crawford. Though the film’s divergent storylines intersect, she didn’t get too many chances to encounter her co-stars, like Jennifer Lopez.
She did get to appear in the background of a Jennifer Lopez scene, and Anna said she couldn’t help being starstruck by the singer, actress, and American Idol judge. Eventually, Anna got to briefly meet Jennifer.
She and her co-stars are on the cover of Redbook, but Anna is concerned about the placement of a headline on the magazine’s cover. Next to her picture is a quotation that says, “I let my wife have another man’s baby,” which Anna assured Ellen is not something she did.
You can see Anna Kendrick, Chace Crawford, Jennifer Lopez and many other stars in the new movie What To Expect When You’re Expecting, in theaters May 18 2012.
