“Up in the Air” star Anna Kendrick may be the only woman on record to have ever uttered the phrase, “I’m over George.” As in costar, Oscar winner and two-time Sexiest Man Alive honoree George Clooney.
But you can hardly blame the starlet, seeing as she’s quizzed about Gorgeous George by any and every entertainment reporter that can get their hands on her. (We’re looking at you, Guiliana Rancic!) When MTV News caught up with Anna on the red carpet at Sunday evening’s Golden Globe Awards, the Best Supporting Actress nominee was candid about her feelings towards George, as well as who she was nervous to meet at the night’s star- studded ceremony.
“I mean, it’s funny, ’cause I think you don’t get over celebrities as a collective,” Anna explained. “You know, now I’m over George. He’s a guy to me. He’s just the guy that teases me mercilessly.”
So if George is just a “guy,” who is the 23-year-old actress intimidated by? “Everyone here,” she responded. “I just got to meet Helen Mirren. I thought my heart was going to explode. I met Morgan Freeman, and I sounded like such an idiot. I don’t even know if I completed a sentence in front of him,” she said, laughing. “I was trying to tell him how well he comes off [in speeches]. I can’t even complete a sentence talking about Morgan Freeman.”
