Academy Award Nominee actress, Anna Kendrick appeared on The Late Show which was hosted by Stephen Colbert last night to promote her new film, A Simple Favor and gave some hilarious insight into that one time she insulted the former President of the United State.
The talking points came up when Stephen Colbert asked Anna Kendrick about a photo that she posted to Instagram in 2013 where she was making Obama laugh.
Colbert wanted to know what was so funny.
Kendrick posted a chummy photo with her seemingly BFF, former President Barack Obama.
“I got an email saying, ‘Hey, do you want to meet the president?’”
Kendrick said around the 2:49 mark.
“Naturally, I said, ‘Of what?’ and they were like, ‘The country, you idiot.”.
Kendrick went to the event in Los Angeles to meet Obama and was the first one in attendance.
There, she started talking with a Secret Service agent about living in Maine when Obama walked in.
While he was meeting everyone and speaking to the crowd, Obama pointed to Kendrick to specifically reference her movie,”Up in the Air”, which he said “talked about the economy and the recession.”
“Oh, this is such an inconvenient time to be having a full stroke, which is obviously what’s happening. People are looking at me,” she said.
According to Kendrick, Obama later went up to her and asked, “I hope I didn’t embarrass you earlier?”
“Yeah, you’re such an asshole,” she responded to laughs.
The photo, which was taken in 2012, shows Obama doubled over in laughter as Kendrick cracks a joke.
“Last year. The coolest three seconds of my life. (What can I say? I’m hilarious) #FlashBackFriday,” she wrote in the caption.
