Anna Kendrick: From Twilight to Red Carpet Royalty

Anna Kendrick, George Clooney, Up in the Air Paramount Pictures

Twilight mere mortal Anna Kendrick has a lot on her mind these days. And you'd better believe it has nothing to do with vampires and werewolves.

Try the red carpet! Ms. Kendrick is rackin' up a lot of award nominations for her work opposite George Clooney in Up in the Air. In other words, she's gonna be playing a lot of dress up in the new year...

"I always feel like someone's going to catch me in some gorgeous gown, but they'll realize that I'm the girl who usually wears Converse and then kick me out of the party," Kendrick tells me.

Of the partying Kendrick will likely be doing with Mr. Clooney, she laughs, "Maybe I'll try to keep up with him and see what a disaster that will be."

Soon after the Golden Globe contenders were announced yesterday, Kendrick emailed costar and fellow nominee Vera Farmiga. "I was like, 'Best Golden Globes table ever? I think so!'" she says. "I can't believe everybody's nominated. It's going to be the best party."

Among those congratulating Kendrick was a certain Twi-star. "Kristen [Stewart] sent me a text," she said. "She sent me a really, really sweet text."

Since then, she's picked up a nomination for a Screen Actors Guild Award, too.

So, will Kendrick prepare any of her possible acceptance speeches? It probably doesn't matter one way or the other, because she doesn't think she'd be able to talk much. "Oh," Kendrick says, "I'll be blubbering like a baby."

If there's any doubt Kendrick can't handle the glam of it all, check her out in the new issue of Vanity Fair. The photo of her is killer.

"I feel like I don't even look like me," the 24-year-old starlet says. "I'm like, 'Oh, my God! I look like a grown-up.'"

Make that a multi-award-nominated grown-up.
