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?

Tous les trois sont de bons acteurs mais Kristen sort du lot, elle a fait des films avec des personnages très différents c’est une actrice qui peut entrer dans la peau de n’importe quel personnage et qui ne cherche ni la facilité ni la célèbrité ce qui me fait penser qu’elle fera une grande carrière!

Just to remind you about one little problem. Anna has no fans. Well maybe a few, but not enough. Without fans you can’t have successful career. On the other hand we all know how Rob and Kristen have hoards of fans, so no one can top them.

I don’t agree with this at all. You said how Anna is the one who has worked with so many famous people, so it seems that you’re uninformed. Kristen is in this job since she knows for herself, and she has worked with Sean Penn, Melissa Leo, Ryan Renolds, Jesse Eisenberg, Garett Hedlund, now she’ll work with Charlize Theron, and Chris Hemsworth, and those are just some of them; the list goes on and on…I think that she’s pretty much the only one from twilight that really knows what she’s doing and is truly good at it..Rob is cool as well, but in my opinion he has some work left to do. Anna is fine, but you can’t compare her and Kristen…Anna has been in like couple of movies, while Kristen was in more than 25 and she’s only 21. And Kristen is the one who has biggest chances to win an oscar. I wouldn’t be surprised if she’d win it next year actually. There’s a lot of talk of how she kicked some but in On The Road. So I think you got my point. Kristen will have the longest and best career, then Rob, and then Anna.

serously jesse eisenberg is famous? he did one good movie that earned him an oscar nom and who’s garrett hedlund i bet most of the people don’t know cuz he only did 8 movies that sucks in my pers opinion kris and rob are both talented but only the future will decide who will have a better career.

it’s so funny because everyone always says kristen plays the same character in every movie. But I think this is true of Anna too. She’s great at that one role, but it’s the same one time and again, even in her oscar nominated movie. She always plays a fast talking, acerbic, smart azz.

I see Anna Kendrick having a career like someone like Christina Applegate. christina applegate is a very capable supporting actress with a lot of wit, she tends to play the sidekick to both women and men in comedies. That’s what I see for Anna.

Kristen and Robert aren’t being offered supporting roles, and they are being offered a lot of lead roles but there’s more “room” for supporting material in a schedule than leading material, so this is a bit skewed.

Look, no need for contests. Anna is a great, she is what you would consider a character actress. She is not exactly leading actress material, but she is a strong talent who will have many more nominations in her future. Kristen and Rob are more leading woman/man material, but that may change at some point post-Twilight. I think Rob is actually more character actor material if it wasn’t for his extremely good looks. Kristen could go either way too, she has some qualities of both types of actress. We’ll see.

I AGREE WITH JAIME NO ONE’S HIRING ANNA TO CARRY THEIR FILMS SHE DOES CHARACTER AND SUPPOTING ROLES. KRISTEN STEWART MADE MORE MONEY IN ONE MOVIE THAN ANNA. KRISTEN #15 FORBES RICH ACTRESS AND HOLLYWOOD.

I think they are all great. Truthfully,I think Anna will be the first and possibly the only Oscar winner out of the Twilight Franchise. Lot’s of actors have made a great living and a famous name for themselves by playing the supporting role. Gene Hackman played plenty of supporting roles before he was a household name. Kristen and Rob are wonderful for box office, so, they will act as long as they can sell seats. Personally I think Rob will be able to last longer in the business. When women get older, it’s over for them. Very few make the transition to leading ladies in the long term. There just are not many Meryl Streeps, Dianne Keatons,or Susan Sarandons in the world. Her roughest years are ahead of her, it’ll all start to go downhill when she reaches her thirties. Men on the other hand can play the game much longer. I wish the best of luck to all of the Twilight Kids and the Harry Potter kids. At least Emma Watson is smart enough to go get her education. Even Jodie Foster went to University during those slow years. So, maybe Kristen will get smart and do the same. For that matter, I’d like to see all of them get their educations.

Kristen is the biggest actress of Twilight and she´ll have many good films in the future. Rob is great actor and Anna will be support actress.

Anna will never break out and be a true leading lady. She does character and supporting roles. Which is both why she can fit in more films and why she’ll never be as successful as actresses like Kristen, Carey Mulligan, Keira Knightley, etc. No one’s hiring Anna to carry their films.

Are you effing kidding me? Um, they’re probably really good friends. It’s like time stands still in Bonnie’s head — she’s nearly 60 but she thinks she’s in junior high and everyone else is too. Good God. Grow up already. Write something nice for a change about two very talented young women.

The downside to a wildly successful film series is being branded. It’s awfully hard to be anything other than the pouty, misunderstood rocker-chick or vampire. Just ask Emma Watson.

I agree with Chris. Anna has a far more open field ahead of her and has made some pretty great script choices thus far.

I just can’t shake off Rob’s vampire character I have not been able to enjoy watching him in another movie. Kristen I love I had seen her in many movies before Twilight and I will watch many other movies she stars in. Anna idk I guess I will have to see about her.

Anna’s great and will have continued sucsess BUT!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pattinson is by far the biggest break-out star and will go on to be a mega leading man in Hollywood.
Stewart will fizzle out because she can’t play anyone but herself in a role and she is not interesting because of that.

This is as ridiculous as all your other ‘stories’. You can’t compare the three actors. They are all successful in their own right.

until anna takes roles away from rob, you can not compare them. as for her and kristen. it looks like they are doing different things with their careers. stop trying to start drama.

I agree. Anna is over rated. I’ve seen Up In The Air. Nothing special about her performance. Dun know why she was nominated for an OSCAR.
