Anna fires back at Obama
US president an “a. . hole” in an exchange which left him doubled over in laughter.
The 33-year-old actress, above, has finally revealed what she said to Obama during a meeting in 2012 — when he was still the US president — which caused confusion after pictures surfaced showing the figurehead in a fit of laughter.
During an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Kendrick revealed Obama singled out her movie, Up In The Air, for praise in front of about 30 people because of the way in which it “talked about the economy and the recession,” and when the pair met face-to-face later on, he apologised for “embarrassing” her with the praise. She then claimed she responded: “Yeah, you’re such an a. . hole.”
She then decided to make up a fictional character trait about people from her home State of Maine, and teased Obama for not knowing the made-up fact.
