(Newser) – Anna Kendrick may be a rising star with a role in the Twilight franchise to boot, but she's not above some good old-fashioned nerdiness. "I happen to be a huge Lord of the Rings fan," she recently revealed, adding that she watches the extended editions, marathon-style, every year. Maybe she could start a club with these fellow female celebrity geeks, rounded up by Celebuzz:

  • Megan Fox: She's another Rings fan, even frequenting message boards on the subject, and she's also into anime and video games like Mortal Kombat and Lego Star Wars.
  • Gwen Stefani: Her Harajuku style is inspired in part by anime characters.

  • Kristen Bell: She's done voices for video games, and she's also attracted to her fellow geeks. Being a geek "means you're not a follower," she once said.
  • Amanda Peet: When it comes to Game of Thrones, she's like a "coke addict," she admits.
  • Rashida Jones: A self-described "born nerd," she preferred reading to drinking in high school—and she was on the math team.
