Anna Kendrick wouldn't direct

November 16th, 2011

Anna Kendrick wouldn't direct because directors always seem in "agony".

The Oscar-nominated beauty is irritated at the lack of good scripts coming out for women, but is not tempted to step behind the camera because they always seem to be frustrated with the film-making process.

She said: "There is just a criminal lack of good scripts full stop! Do I want to direct? Not really. Directors constantly seem to be in agony.

"There seems to be significant weight loss or gain, or the greying of hair. I mean, you have to be stupid to be an actor, but you have to be really stupid to be a director!"

Despite winning her Academy Award nomination for her role in 'Up in the Air', many will best know her as Jessica Stanley in the 'Twilight Saga' franchise.

Although she is appreciative of her time with the series, she feels like she is glad she will not always be tied with it because she played a human character, unlike her co-stars who will be best known as vampires or werewolves.

She told the Scotsman newspaper: "I definitely came away from that unscathed. I mean, some people in 'Twilight' will only be thought of by a specific group of people as so-and-so vampire, and when it comes to me, people who are fans of the series generally think, 'Oh, she did an OK job, she's alright by me.'

"But I don't think I will forever be that particular girl for them and I think that's because I play a human being. It's easier for people to accept me as other people."
