One of the "Twilight" franchise's most successful graduates, Anna Kendrick picked up an Oscar nomination for her supporting role in "Up in the Air" (2009) before fronting the musical comedy franchise "Pitch Perfect" (2012). Born in Portland, ME in 1985, Anna Kendrick first caught attention as a 12-year-old in a Broadway production of "High Society," picking up a Tony Award nomination for her performance as Dinah Lord. After appearing in Stephen Sondheim's "A Little Night Music," Kendrick focused her attention towards the big screen, landing the role of nerdy Fritzi Wagner in summer camp dramedy "Camp" (2003). She then took a four-year break from the industry before returning as a high school debater in "Rocket Science" (2007) and bagging the role of Bella's friend Jessica Stanley in the adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's young adult phenomenon "Twilight" (2008), reprising the role in three further installments of the franchise. Before wrapping up on "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" (2011), Kendrick had also played the leading lady in teen thriller "Elsewhere" (2009), Jason Schwartzman's love interest in "The Marc Pease Experience" (2009) and the eponymous hero's sister Stacey in "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" (2010). Most notably, she had picked up an Oscar nomination for her measured turn as an ambitious corporate downsizer in Jason Reitman's "Up in the Air" (2009). Kendrick went on to appear as a fledgling therapist in cancer dramedy "50/50" (2011), an FBI agent in political thriller "The Company You Keep" (2012) and Jake Gyllenhaal's girlfriend in cop tale "End of Watch" (2012) before lending her voice to cheerleader Courtney in the Academy Award-nominated animation "ParaNorman" (2012). Kendrick proved she could front an entire franchise on her own when she was cast as the Barden Bellas leader Beca Mitchell in "Pitch Perfect" (2012), the hit acappella comedy which spawned two sequels and saw its star grace the US Top 10 with a cover version of Lulu and the Lampshades' "Cups." After appearing opposite Chace Crawford in "What to Expect When You're Expecting" (2012), Kendrick ventured into the indie world with roles in mumblecore favorites "Drinking Buddies" (2013) and "Happy Christmas" (2014), co-starred with Craig Robinson in supernatural comedy "Rapture-Palooza" (2013) and played the suicide victim who haunts Jennifer Aniston in grief-stricken drama "Cake" (2014). Kendrick then got the chance to showcase her singing voice again, firstly as Cinderella in the big screen take version of Sondheim classic "Into the Woods" (2014) and then as struggling actress Cathy Hiatt in two-hander musical "The Last Five Years." Her golden streak continued with supporting roles in comedy horrors "Life After Beth" (2014) and "The Voices" (2015), her third collaboration with Joe Swanberg, "Digging for Fire" (2015), and a co-starring role with Sam Rockwell in hitman caper "Mr. Right" (2015). Kendrick then appeared on the big screen five times in the space of 12 months, showing up opposite Ben Affleck in action thriller "The Accountant" (2016), Miles Teller in the long-delayed post-grad comedy "Get a Job" (2016) and John Krasinski in ensemble dramedy "The Hollars" (2016). She concluded her most prolific year playing against type as a slacker party girl in "Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates" (2016) and providing the voice of Poppy in "Trolls" (2016), the animated hit whose sequel, "Trolls World Tour" (2020), she would also contribute to. After showing up as wedding guest Eloise in "Table 19" (2017), Kendrick impressed as single mother vlogger Stephanie in camp mystery "A Simple Favor" (2018) and FBI operative Kendra Glack in Chris Morris's absurdist satire "This Day Shall Come" (2019). Kendrick then took a rare detour into television to voice cavewoman Jane in prehistoric animated series "Human Discoveries" (Facebook Watch, 2019-), play Santa Claus' daughter in festive comedy "Noelle" (2019) and take center stage as medical researcher Levenson in sci-fi thriller "Stowaway" (2020).

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: How can you not think about that? How does it not even cross your mind that you might want a future with someone?

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.

Katherine says: You can't change your situation, the only thing that you can change is how you deal with it.

Katherine says: You can't change your situation. The only think that you can change is how you choose to deal with it.

Natalie Keener says: It is...by definition.

Natalie Keener says: It is, by definition.

Ryan Bingham says: Never say 'fired'.

Natalie Keener says: You've been let go.

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.

Ryan Bingham says: Actually, you didn't. Now, fire me.

Natalie Keener says: I thought I'd be engaged by now...no offense.

Natalie Keener says: I thought I'd be engaged by now, no offense.

Alex Goran says: It's alright.

Natalie Keener says: What kind of relationship do you have?

Ryan Bingham says: You know, casual.

Natalie Keener says: Sounds pretty special.

Natalie Keener says: I don't get it, why does your sister want a fake photo?

Ryan Bingham says: My sister's kooky, she thinks this is charming, like that gnome thing.

Natalie Keener says: No, I meant why would she want a picture in front of the St. Louis airport?

Natalie Keener says: *breaks into tears* Brian left me!

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.
