ANNA Kendrick has revealed her dream date for the Oscars — American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert!
Kendrick — who stars opposite George Clooney in the critically-acclaimed new movie Up In The Air — says she has known Lambert since she was a teenager and would love for him to be her red carpet companion at this year’s Academy Awards.
“We saw each other at party about a year ago and he told me, ‘You can’t tell anybody but I tried out for American Idol and I got through Hollywood Week’,” Anna told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show.
“I was like, ‘Okay! You can’t tell anybody but I just booked this movie with George Clooney!’ We didn’t see each other again for a year and finally we saw each other at the Critics’ Choice Awards and the SAG Awards. We were like, you know, it’s been quite a year for both of us.”
“Um, he’s a good time,” Anna said when asked if she’d like to take Adam to the Oscars. “He’s fun. He’s a really, really fun dude.”
Lambert, 28, recently congratulated Kendrick on his Twitter account, saying, “Congrats on your Oscar nom! Crazy! So, so proud.”
Anna is up for the Best Supporting Actress gong for her role in Up In The Air. She faces competition from Penelope Cruz, Nine; Vera Farmiga, Up in the Air; Maggie Gyllenhaal, Crazy Heart; and Mo’Nique, Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire
The 82nd Academy Awards take place at Los Angeles’ Kodak Theatre on March 2 and will be hosted Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin.
