Anna Kendrick Once Called Barack Obama An "A**hole" To His Face

During a Friday appearance on The Late Show, Anna Kendrick revealed that she accidentally called former President Barack Obama an a**hole when they met at a small event in 2012. 

She explained that Obama mentioned her when discussing the movie Up in the Air. 

"I hope I didn't embarrass you earlier?" he asked her later. Kendrick replied, "Yeah, you're such an a**hole." 

The actress also shared that she teased Obama about being the first person to arrive at the event. "Are people from Maine really punctual?" he responded. 

Kendrick, a Maine native, recalled, "I was like, 'You didn't know that? You're the president!'"
