That’s so unexpected! What happened, exactly? Anna Kendrick was a guest on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and while there she told the host that back in 2012, she made former President Barack Obama laugh out loud.
‘Oh, me and Barack. I’m just making him laugh,’ the actress joked.
But it turns out that she didn’t just tell him a knock-knock joke, or a pun or anything like that! There’s so much more to the story!
It all started when she got an invitation to meet the president (‘of what?’) she apparently asked.
As expected, the excited Pitch Perfect star was the very first person to get to the important meeting with Obama.
While the President was talking about the economy and other stuff in his speech, he suddenly pointed at Kendrick in the audience and said: ‘Actually, Anna starred in one of my favorite films, Up In the Air, which talks about the economy and the recession.’
Afterward, the star got in line to shake Obama’s hand, and when it was her turn, the man apologized, saying ‘I hope I didn’t embarrass you earlier,’ to which she replied: ‘Yeah, you’re such an a**hole.’ That’s crazy!
But of course, Barack was not at all offended and only laughed copiously at her reaction.
Obama also mentioned that Anna is from Maine and so was a Secret Service agent she had talked to earlier at the event.
‘Yeah, and I was the first one to arrive, too,’ Kendrick said.
‘Oh, are people from Maine really punctual?’ the President jokingly asked.
‘Yeah, you didn’t know that? You’re the president!’ she quipped!
The playful dissing that happened not once, but twice amused Obama a lot. Kendrick is so blunt no matter who’s she talking to and she definitely made a lasting impression on the former President!
