Anna Kendrick Will Be A Bigger Star Than Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson After 'Breaking Dawn!'

Rob and Kristen are without question the biggest stars in young Hollywood right now, but Oscar nominee Anna has lined up more work than the two of them combined!

Anna Kendrick may be the least seen and photographed Twilight actor, and for good reason — she’s always working! The 25-year-old actress has three films slated for release in 2012, will star in this summer’s 50/50 alongside Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt and is close to landing the role of Jake Gyllenhaal‘s wife in End of Watch, set to shoot this summer. Oh, and did we mention she’s an Oscar nominee?

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have also kept busy, though with less well received films. Of the three, most would be surprised to know it is Anna who has worked with George Clooney, Seth, Angelica Huston, Michael Cera, Vera Farmiga and Jason Bateman, to name just a few.

Also helping Anna greatly is the fact that, unlike Rob and Kristen, she is a minor character in the Twilight series. She gets to stop by, steal a few scenes with her always hilarious delivery and be on her way. She will never have the vampire stigma to shake.

Rob and Kristen are of course working hard and booking projects, but these days it seems harder for them to blend in to films with smaller roles, instead needing to take on major parts.

It therefore seems likely that while Rob and Kristen will both enjoy a long career, Anna is set to be the true breakout Twilight star. Do you agree HollywoodLifers?

“Most would be surprised to know it is Anna who has worked with George Clooney, Seth, Angelica Huston, Michael Cera, Vera Farmiga and Jason Bateman.”

Uhh, okay? Most would be surprised to know it is Kristen who has worked with Robert De Niro, Jodie Foster, James Gandolfini, Melissa Leo, Jesse Eisenberg and, eventually Charlize Theron for “Snow White and the Huntsmen”. I think that of all three actors, Kristen probably has the most cred. She’s been doing indie flicks since she was 12 years old, and has the most background/experience in acting. Twilight was her “break out” role, and after its success, she will have a much easier time getting roles, and not just in indies or “limited release” movies.

That’ll probably also be the case for Rob, though I think Kristen has a better shot at staying relevant after Twilight. If she was getting steady jobs and had a solid, respectable indie actress career BEFORE Twilight, I have no doubts she’ll be fine afterwards. Rob, on the other hand, was just about ready to give up on acting when he was offered the role of Edward. He was broke and sleeping on his agent’s couch. He needed Twilight, whereas Kristen didn’t.

As for Anna, I can’t see her as more than a supporting artist, which is what she’s been in pretty much all her movies.

But you all have to give them a chance. But you’re too interested in saying Anna’s the best, and Rob and Kristen will be remembered for their Twilight roles. If you actually looked outside the box and watched their other movies, and stopped being so ignorant to their other moviesL: you’d be giving them a chance.

I’m not sure. Anna’s obviously talented. But can she take a leading role? I’ll remember Kristen for taking leading roles or at least the next step to a leading role. Anna’s more the type to win for a supporting actress. She’s only getting nominated too so far. I do think both Anna and Kristen will be nominated for wanted awards such as Oscars. Kristen’s already predicted to be a nominee for On The Road.

I do think too, it’s unfair to just say Kristen’s been in Twilight. If you ask directors or actors and actresses about her previous work, they mention Into The Wild. Twilight made her big, but Into The Wild really made her interesting and showed some talent.

Now for Rob. I’m not sure. He needs to branch out more and commit to different roles instead of the roles where he’s tearing some love a part or is in some doomed love. I do think he can manage other roles, we’ve just got to see him in different roles. Also apparently Oscars don’t like pretty boys. Currently he’s a pretty boy to them. He’s sexiest man in Hollywood and wanted by teens etc.

I do think all three are capable.

Anna is a great actress and will go far, but she’s not pretty enough to get leading roles, she’s a character actress, which is great, every movie needs one of those.

Rob has tremendous sex appeal and will get leading man roles his whole life. The world is his oyster he can pick and choose and will continually be offered the best scripts with the finest directors. WFE was a nice hit for him, he got good reviews and the film made a profit.

Kristen is living off of Twilight fame. None of her films outside of that series have ever make a profit, her indies always bomb, huge flops. The ticket buying public isn’t interested in her. She has a tiny fanbase made up of girls who want to be her because they think she’s close to Rob. When their friends with benefits deal is over, watch the interest in her dry up. She’s been riding his coattails for years now, but that may be over. Time will tell.

She has a huge fanbase.

Kristen has worked in Indie movies, that usually have a hard time being distributed. That’s the problem.

She has fans all over the world. But it’s just her fans don’t always have the chance of seeing the movies.

PISSED OFF

Boy your hatred for Kristen and Robert is beyond nonsten sad. I have never seen a blog site that is supposed to talk about Hollywood gossip just attack these two on a daily basis with no shame. Not to mention every single article that is written gets blown out of the water by Gossip Cop.

DO YOU PEOPLE HAVE A RESEARCH STAFF OR ACCESS TO AN ENCYLOPEDIA OR GOOGLE?! WTF!! MAYBE ACCESS TO KRISTEN’S IMDb PAGE AT LEAST?!

Anna busted in her first film after the Oscars. Remember? She’s been busy. Last time I checked both Rob and Kristen have had several movies put out, Kristen just won Best Actress for Welcome to the Rileys at the Milan Film Festival and Rob who co-starred in Water for Elephants with Oscar winners Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz just had box office success with the movie.

Both Rob and Kristen was on the Forbes list of highest paid actors (neither have won an Oscar by the way). Not to mention Forbes named Rob as one of the most influential people in the world! Don’t you watch Oprah? This was after Anna won her Oscar, dayum do you hate them that much?

NEWSFLASH: NEITHER ROB NOR KRISTEN GIVES A F*CK ABOUT BEING A F*CKING STAR OR BEING F*CKING FAMOUS!! YOU HAVE SHOWN WITH THIS BULLSH*T ARTICLE THAT YOU DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THESE TWO PEOPLE OTHERWISE YOU WOULD HAVE NEVER WRITTEN IT!! NOT ONLY ARE YOU PEOPLE AS*HOLES AT HOLLYWOOD LIFE, YOU CONTINUOUSLY SHOW HOW STUPID YOU ARE.

DO GETTING HITS MEAN THAT MUCH TO YOU THAT YOU DON’T CARE ABOUT GIVING FACTS?!!!

Kristen has been working with both Oscar winning actors and directors and writers since she was a child. Clooney? George Clooney? Get the f*ck out of here. Kristen runs circles around Anna. Clooney ain’t no f*cking DeNiro I tell you that! That’s who Kristen has worked with Robert f*cking DeNiro!!!! Jodie f*cking Foster, Forrest f*cking Whitaker, Sean f*cking Penn!!!

THE BIGGEST STARS IN HOLLYWOOD. CLOONEY’S IN THE SOUTH OF FRANCE STRINGING OUT ANOTHER GIRLFRIEND WHO HE’S NOT MARRYING!

Robert is currently working with Juliet Binoche and Cronenberg!! Kristen has a movie called On the Road that’s coming out this fall along with Breaking Dawn which it’s going to break all kinds of box office records. On the Road already has Oscar buzz and the sh*t isn’t even near being out yet! So f*ck you Hollywood Life!!

Go to Kristen’s IMDb page and click on every movie and look at the cast, then pull out a f*cking notepad and write down every Oscar nominated, winner that she’s worked with including directors and writers. Now come back and and update your article and eat sh*t and die because you look just as stupid as Ted Casablanca did the other day when he had to eat sh*t and die writing that bullsh*t about Rob!!

Kristen will be nominated for an Oscar. When she does, WTF will you write about her then.

anna kendriks work in up in the air was fabulous…she had acted really well…i believe that apart from luck its hard work and talent that will take you closer to success…..definately hands down anna acts better than rob and kristen …in and out of twilight….shes very natural…kristen seems really fake in her films and a bit panicky…and rob broods a lot…both of them are decent actors outside of twilight though

It’s obvious that you have not read Twilight and know nothing about the characters. Rob broods a lot in Twilight because (pay attention) that’s his character as Edward. Whenever any of the cast were interviewed, they always say that Rob is funny and hilarious. That’s how good he is…he is very convincing that people think he is really like that (broods) in real life. Now you say Kristen is panicky? Same thing — that’s how Bella is — awkward and clumsy. Does she seem panicky in runaways? No! Again, because Joan Jett is not a different character. They are actors…hence, they are acting their characters. Now, do you get it?

Anna has worked in better movies with bigger stars.
Rob keeps branching out to less successful films and if kristen plays an angsty teen in one more movie i’ll scream.
I almost guarantee that anna will not be known as that girl from twilight and have a great career while rob and kristen will be known as those two vampires from twilight who barely had a relationship and drove the press crazy by not revealing absolutely everything about their relationship like kim kardashian.

I think she will have the *longest* career, but maybe not be as famous. I don’t think KStew is that talented, so unless she and Rob get married I doubt her time in the limelight will last into her 30s. I think (and hope) Rob goes the George Clooney route. He’s certainly talented enough. As for Anna, she will probably continue to get juicy roles for a long time, but always be one of those actors who’s you know you love, but can’t remember their name until the credits.

Rob Pattinson will be the bigger star than Anna or Kristen. Kristen acting is very bland outside of the Twilight series.Rob’s Remember Me was good and had a good return at the boxoffice as well as Water for Elephants has reached $110,000.00.

Sure Anna will get a lot of parts in a movie ,but she doesn’t have it in her to be as popular as Kristen Stewart,She’s not a movie star material,just a second fiddle to anybody famous.And Rob is not as well as love by his peers as Kristen Stewart,you will noticed when actors like Ryan Reynolds say Kristen’s name when they win an award ,it’s with enthusiasm and with Robert it die down,so most likely Kristen will have a long lasting career and will only get more famous in time.

I don’t think it’s flop, it’s just that it never had a chance to premiered outside the US. Like the Yellow handkerchief, it’s limited release, as well as the WTR, maybe because it’s an Indie Movie. But it does sells well on it’s DVD-release. As for the Runaways, not all the theaters showed that one. It didn’t even reached Asia. So to conclude,as you compare it to the movie on which Rob is part you will notice that most of the movie where Kristen didn’t have a chance to be showed on all theaters, in the US or outside of it. That’s what I observe though.
