Still, Kendrick bristled at the notion that “Twilight” fans, or “Twihards,” are a little overboard. “People like to make fun of the fans who camp out but people have renaissance faires; people do Civil War reenactments; people do what they like,” Kendrick said. “I’m tired of hearing people rag on the fans. If you don’t like ‘Twilight,’ don’t buy a ticket.”

MG: You’re a part of this huge, crazy “Twilight’’ thing, and then all of a sudden you’re an Oscar campaign. How have you maintained any normalcy?
AK: I’ll tell you, the really humbling moment is the moment that you get home from the Golden Globes or the BAFTAs or the Oscars, and you sit on your bed, which is the same crappy IKEA bed you’ve had since you were 18, and you put on an old episode of “Family Guy,’’ and you have a frozen meal . . . and you’re trying not to get macaroni and cheese on your thousand-dollar gown.
MG: In every interview I’ve read with you, you get asked something about your costars Robert Pattinson and George Clooney — like, what does one smell like versus the other. Or if you were on an island, who would you bring? You always play along. It must get annoying.
AK: I’ve always tried to be nice and not to dismiss that question, but I’ve gotten to the point where I’m wondering why I don’t. . . . It’s one of the things that really makes me hate doing interviews. If somebody said that about me all the time or asked, “Who’s sexier, Anna or Kristen Stewart?,’’ it would make me feel terrible. And I would imagine it would make her feel terrible, too.
