This Is Why Anna Kendrick Called President Obama An Asshole
What would you say to Obama if you met him? Would you call him an asshole like Anna Kendrick did?
Earlier this week, the 33-year-old Pitch Perfect actress Anna Kendrick revealed to Stephen Colbert why she once called President Obama an asshole straight to his face. On Friday’s episode of The Late Night With Stephen Colbert, Kendrick described her experience meeting the president during a campaign event in Los Angeles back in 2012.
The statement accidentally slipped out after Obama called the actress out while describing the economy, recession, and Kendrick’s 2009 movie Up In The Air. After the speech, Obama told the Maine native “I hope I didn’t embarrass you earlier” which she responded, “Yeah, you’re such an asshole.”
Kendrick then continued to tease the president about being the first to arrive at the event, to which he replied, “Are people from Maine really punctual?” She then responded with “You didn’t know that? You’re the president!'” Very smooth Kendrick, very smooth. But hey, NBD, Obama seemed pretty chill about the whole thing. After the encounter, Kendrick took to Instagram saying that meeting the president was “The coolest three seconds of my life. (What can I say? I'm hilarious)”.
