Anna Kendrick says filming ‘Twilight’ was like a ‘hostage situation’

Anna Kendrick did not have a very good time filming “Twilight,” thanks for asking.

In a video interview with Vanity Fair, the actress broke down various roles over the course of her career.

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,'” she said.

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,” she said. “Like you imagine people who survive a hostage situation, and you’re kind of bonded for life.”

Kendrick said she was also shocked that so many fans remember the speech her character delivered at graduation in the third movie, “Eclipse.”

“People are like, ‘You know, that speech that you give in that third movie, it’s really sweet. It’s really moving.’ And, I swear to God, I’m like the thing that is happening is you are looking at Kristen Stewart’s reaction to that speech and that is the thing that is moving you,” she said.

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,” she said. “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.
