Tony-nominated, Drama Desk award-winning actress Anna Kendrick got her start on the stage before segueing into film with roles in the Todd Graff musical comedy Camp and Spellbound director Jeffrey Blitz's post-Napoleon Dynamite teen misfit comedy Rocket Science. Cast in the latter as the love interest of a stuttering high-school student seeking to steady his voice by joining the debate team, Kendrick charmed viewers with her effervescent radiance before taking the lead as a teen desperately searching for her missing best friend in cinematographer-turned-director Nathan Hope's 2007 thriller Elsewhere. Later that same year, Kendrick could be seen opposite Ben Stiller and Jason Schwartzman in director Todd Louiso's arrested-development comedy The Marc Pease Experience. In 2008 she landed a recurring part in the highly successful Twilight series, but her real breakthrough came in 2009 with her Oscar-nominated turn opposite George Clooney in Up in the Air. In 2010 she appeared in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and a year later she earned strong reviews playing a psychiatrist counseling a young cancer victim in 50/50. In 2012 she was in the ensemble pregnancy comedy What to Expect When You're Expecting, lent her voice to the animated film ParaNorman, and scored a huge hit with the a capella comedy Pitch Perfect.

Ryan Bingham says: You really want to know?

Natalie Keener says: I'm dying to know.

Ryan Bingham says: I don't spend a nickel, if I can help it, unless it somehow profits my mileage account.

Natalie Keener says: So, what are you saving up for? Hawaii? South of France?

Ryan Bingham says: It's not like that. The miles are the goal Let's just say that I have a number in mind and I haven't hit it yet.

Natalie Keener says: That's it? You're saving just to save? That's a little abstract. What's the target?

Natalie Keener says: Yes!

Ryan Bingham says: Right, well I don't.

Jessica says: All of a sudden he's all about Bella, even though she's not captain of the volleyball team. I'm just kidding. Or student council president....

Jessica says: Um...and then suddenly, Edward is all about Bella. Even though she's not the captain of the volleyball team. [she laughs]

Natalie Keener says: I'm not afraid to be married to my career. And I don't expect it to hold me in bed as I go to sleep.

Ryan Bingham says: Why?

Natalie Keener says: This is a mythical situation, how could I possibly know why?

Ryan Bingham says: Mr. Gregory hired me, he's the only one who can fire me. You know what, I'm gonna go talk to him.

Natalie Keener says: Mr. Bingham...

Ryan Bingham says: No, no, you can't follow me, you're on a computer screen.

Ryan Bingham says: Fire me again.

Ryan Bingham says: Try again. Fire me.

Natalie Keener says: I just did.

Ryan Bingham says: Actually, you didn't.

Natalie Keener says: [breaks into tears] Brian left me!

Natalie Keener says: It's a cocoon of self-vanishment!

Natalie Keener says: It's a cocoon of self-banishment!

Ryan Bingham says: Wow, big words!

Jessica says: When we were five, they asked us what we wanted to be when we grew up. Our answers were things like, astronauts, president... or in my case, a princess.. When we were ten, they asked again. We answered, a rock star, cowboy, or in my case, a gold medalist. But now that we're grown up, they want a serious answer. Well, how about this. Who the hell knows?.. This isn't the time to make hard and fast decisions; this is a time to make mistakes. Take the wrong train and get stuck somewhere. Fall in love... a lot. Major in philosophy, because there's no way to make a career out of that. Change your mind, and change it again, because nothing's permanent. So make as many mistakes as you can. That way, someday, when they ask what we want to be, we won't have to guess... we'll know.
