Anna Kendrick - Anna Kendrick Unsure About 50/50

Anna Kendrick had "reservations" about signing up to '50/50'.

The 26-year-old star plays the role of a therapist in the comedy about a man suffering with cancer - starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen - and she admits she was worried about what questions she would have to answer when the film came out.

She said: "I had reservations when I read the original pitch. I thought, 'I'm going to have to do press and answer questions where people ask, 'Is cancer funny? Is it really OK to laugh at that?'

"It helped that it was based on the writer Will Reiser's real life story, because I feel like I can say: I guess if he finds it funny, then yes.' So far, touch wood, I haven't had a personal experience of cancer. I'm lucky I suppose."

The 'Twilight Saga' actress also admits she was unsure about playing a therapist because she was worried about her abilities.

She told Hello! magazine: "I am always really hesitant because I worry that if it is taken it will backfire. I like to think I am a good listener, but I think that has got worse over time, I get easily distracted."
