25 Cool Movie People Doing it Right on Twitter

Anna Kendrick's Twitter feed Twitter - @AnnaKendrick47

When it comes to Hollywood people on Twitter, there are basically four different types:

2. The ones that are obviously controlled by some P.R. lackey receiving triple-filtered fluff to post (lookin' at the noob, Liam Hemsworth);

Appearing on The Jonathan Ross Show this weekend, Sir Ian McKellen revealed that he'll be serving as an officiant for Patrick Stewart's upcoming wedding ceremony with thirty-five-year-old songstress Sunny Ozell. Get More »
