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.
