The Twilight saga has introduced many new talented stars, one of those shining at this moment is Anna Kendrick for her role in the critically acclaimed movie Up In The Air with her mega co-star hunk George Clooney.

She has been nominated for Best Supporting Actress, and has earned an Academy Award nomination for her role of prim and professional go-getter, Natalie Keener. The 24-year-old was a breath of fresh air in a movie that was otherwise gloomy and depressing.
Kendrick was bitten by the acting bug at the age of ten, when her parents would allow her and her brother Michael Cook Kendrick, also an actor, to take the bus from their home state of Maine, to New York City to attend auditions. 

Some of her other work includes films; Camp and Rocket Science.

In 1998, she was the youngest person nominated for the prestigious Tony Award for her role in a Broadway musical, High Society. She is also a Golden Globe and Oscar nominee. 

She will resume her role as Jessica Stanley in Stephenie Meyer’s mega buster Twilight saga, Eclipse which opens in theaters June 30, 2010.
