Anna Kendrick was honored with the Palm Springs International Film Festival Rising Star Award for her role as Natalie in the upcoming, Up In The Air, at a reception in Los Angeles on Tuesday night (October 13).
The 24-year-old actress dished on working with George Clooney, saying, “By day four of filming, you’re so comfortable around him. He’s so charming and so quick witted and fun that it’s impossible to be nervous.”
Anna also opened up about Twilight‘s success. She shared, “We had no idea the kind of magnitude of the success that it was about to have.”
Festival chairman Harold Matzner shared about Anna, saying, “Anna Kendrick is an extremely gifted young actress. At age 12, she received a Tony Award nomination for Best Featured Actress in a Musical for her role as Dinah in High Society. She has gone from strength to strength with each succeeding screen roll. Given her striking, multifaceted performance in Up in the Air, we are delighted to present her with the Festival’s Rising Star Award.”
Anna will receive her award during the 2009 Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival will take place in Palm Springs, California from January 5 to 18, 2010.
