Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!


#Quote
1As a kid I would I would dream about saving boys from cliffs - not the other way around.
2It occurred to me that doing four musicals was maybe not a great career plan, but when certain opportunities come along you throw the rules out the window.
3I love old screwball comedies: Bringing Up Baby (1938), Arsenic and Old Lace (1944), stuff like that. But my two favorite modern comedies are Wet Hot American Summer (2001) and Hot Fuzz (2007).
4[on which movies inspired her] Daniel Day-Lewis' performance in In the Name of the Father (1993) made me realize what movies could do. But the super-cheesy answer to that which is probably more accurate is Life with Mikey (1993) , which is about a child talent agency. I desperately wanted to be this chubby little girl who sang at the end of that movie.
5We were just in the recording studio for Into the Woods (2014) and The Rescuers Down Under (1990) came on, and Emily Blunt and I and a bunch of PAs sat around watching it. It's one of those movies I have a fever-dream memory of, like you watched it when you were so little that you're not sure whether you imagined the entire movie. It was amazing to watch those two little mice get on that seagull.
6I've been pretty lucky in terms of the films I've been in, and having a slow and steady build. I have done smaller films that a lot of people in the industry have seen, and I feel sort of fortunate that it hasn't been this overnight thing. I'm hoping that it continues to be this slow and steady thing so that I can take a deep breath and get used to it.
7It's luck, pure and simple. I mean, I work very, very hard, but I don't take any of this for granted and I don't think any of it is because I'm better or more talented than other actors," she says. "There are people who work at least as hard as me and are twice as talented, and nobody's asking them about makeup secrets. There is a lot of luck to how my life's turned out.
8I'm really glad that the Oscar stuff is over, to be perfectly honest. I mean, I am infinitely grateful - I'm so lucky - but it's been a really crazy year. You're constantly wearing clothes someone else picked out for you, delivering sound bites instead of real feelings, and walking into rooms full of people you don't know. I didn't become an actor for any of that, so it's been kind of a confusing time for me.
9I'll tell you, the really humbling moment is the moment that you get home from the Golden Globes or the BAFTAs or the Oscars, and you sit on your bed, which is the same crappy IKEA bed you've had since you were 18, and you put on an old episode of Family Guy (1999) and you have a frozen meal . . . and you're trying not to get macaroni and cheese on your thousand-dollar gown.
10An actor should always let humility outweigh ambition.
11[on being lazy while filming Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)] I have an older brother and when I told him about the movie he said, "Oh, so you've been preparing for this movie for 24 years. Ha ha ha." Yeah, I'm just being me. I was SO lazy. I had source material and the REAL Stacy Pilgrim and I'm still just playing me. (Laughs.)
12I do admit that I've never been one to fit in easily to any given pattern. It's not my choice. It's just the way I am. So if the characters I wind up playing are all a bit different, it must be because that's the way I like it. Anna Kendrick is different and she's going to stay that way.
13Okay, I am happy with the way I look, but I have never, never, ever thought of myself as a 'pretty girl'. Honestly. When I read some of these scripts I'm sent and they describe the heroine as 'incredibly beautiful', I wonder why they sent it to me. I also find myself thinking that she better also be pretty damn interesting, or I'm not going to want to play her. . . I actually went into one audition recently when the script called the character 'an Anna Kendrick type' and I thought to myself 'What the heck is that, anyway?' There was another girl sitting in the room and she was so much prettier than me and I thought, 'Guys, just what are you looking for?'
14I sort of marvel at myself. Maybe at a certain point everybody feels like the person they were when they were younger is a stranger. Because I seemed to be much more driven and focused at that age. I had the intention of being on Broadway. I am just very grateful that my parents treated me with respect... and really, really supported me.
15While I wouldn't wish being teased on anyone, I think it eventually leads to a kind of solidarity in adult life. The few people I know who weren't picked on in school are people I find I can't relate to on much more than a surface level. There's a sensitivity that comes with feeling like an outsider at some point in your life. I'd rather be emotionally tuned in to other people than slightly more confident because no one ever made fun of my hair.
16[on not being part of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 (2012)] I'm not in it, I don't know anything about it, so I'm excited just to see it, you know, as a normal moviegoer. (August 2012)
17I guess I'm drawn to... I think, even when I read serious scripts, the moments that I connect to are the little glimpses of humor, because, you know, I think every script, no matter how serious it is, has bits of humor in it. Even End of Watch is really funny. So those are the moments where I can kind of see what I can do with it that's different, and I feel like that's the easiest way for me to get inside a character's head, is through the humor, like what sense of humor they have.
18People like to make fun of the fans who camp out but people have renaissance fairs; people do Civil War re-enactments; people do what they like. I'm tired of hearing people rage on the fans. If you don't like Twilight, don't buy a ticket.
