Anna’s Personal Quotes:


"I try to keep my head on straight and take nothing for granted."

“I don't really like to go out to clubs or anything. It's just not my style. I'd much rather go to a dive bar or    a local place. I just don't love feeling awful, having to tell people, "Hi, yeah, I was in 'Scary Movie.' Do you mind if we come in?" I mean, it's so awkward.”

            About playing Cindy Campbell - “I love it. She is one of my favorite characters because she has such great intentions but she's too crazy to follow through with them


            "May" was really fun to make- I only worked about four days on it, so it wasn't anything like making a studio film - but it was fun. It was very low-budget. I kept thinking "I wonder what this film is going to  be like?" I wanted to play a role that was different than anything I'd ever done before. It was such a  surprise when it got  into Sundance and then it sold the first night. You should have seen the Sundance audience though they were crazy - they laughed the whole way through. Angela Bettis is great - she's so talented and I really like Lucky.”
