What a tough life for Up in the Air Golden-Globe nominee Anna Kendrick – jetting between film sets with a two-time PEOPLE Sexiest Man Alive winner and with one of the world’s favorite vampires.
Shedding light on shooting Up in the Air with George Clooney and Twilight with Robert Pattinson, Kendrick, 24, tells Ellen DeGeneres on the TV’s host’s Jan. 8 show, “George gave me such a hard time about shooting Twilight. Whenever I came back, it was like, ‘Oh sorry, this isn’t the Twilight set. You’re not working with Mr. Handsome.’ He called Rob ‘Mr. Handsome.’ ”
But Kendrick admits she helped egg on the pseudo-competition, bringing back a GQ magazine that she had Pattinson sign, “To George, Best of Luck. Hang in there. Love Rob.”
Clooney’s response? He signed his Esquire magazine, “Dear Rob, Thanks for all the inspiration. I’m a huge fan. Love, George, two-time ‘Sexiest Man Alive.’ ”
