The actress said she also called Obama “a ** hole” during the 2012 exchange edition.
Anna Kendrick said one of her greatest moments of pride has never been, – President Barack Obama doubles that with laughter. Now the actress has revealed exactly what she said to crack so well.
Kendrick spoke about his interaction with Obama this week, telling Stephen Colbert about a 2012 event campaign when she had the chance to meet him. People magazine noted the conversation could have gone in a very different direction, with Kendrick accidentally calling the president “a ** hole” to his face.
The 33-year-old actress told that during the event campaign in Los Angeles, Obama referenced her while talking about the economy and the recession, saying her 2009 film, In Air, did a good job portraying both. Later, privately, President Obama asked if he was embarrassed by putting it up there.
“Yeah, you’re like a ** hole,” she joked in response.
But it was not the only bit of wit she displays. Kendrick said that when she was first to arrive for the event, Obama asked her, “Are Maine people really punctual?”
Anna Kendrick was open about her political affiliation, especially her support for gay marriage. Kendrick has become something of an icon in the LGBTQ world, even though she said it
The lawyer that she does not see herself editing in one of the letters of this acronym.
“I’m like a right, from the Borieface McGee here, so I like that it might be even a little bit real,” she says. “The idea that I’m resonating with other people who have never felt like strangers is the coolest.”
Kendrick said that his 10 closest friends, both men, and women, are all gay.
She was more open when it comes to her political preferences. Kendrick, not only a campaign to help re-election Barack Obama, but also lamented the surprise of the election of his successor, Donald Trump.
“I woke up feeling that I had a nightmare. Then started crying again. Mantra: I’m not alone, we’re not alone, “she tweeted in the morning after Trump was elected president.
So, while his sense of humor may work well for Barack Obama, it’s not likely that Anna Kendrick will be yukking with Donald Trump anytime soon.
