Barack Obama is a cool guy, it’s hard to deny it. He probably was one of the most close to the public presidents ever, not shying away from appearing on popular TV shows. Mr. Obama also met a lot of celebrities during his presidential years.

Stars like Katy Perry, David Beckham, Eva Longoria, Meryl Streep, and many more were lucky to have a chat with their favorite president.


But there is one meeting that Mr. Obama will probably never forget.

“President of what?”

Anna Kendrick is a feisty young lady, who is never afraid to speak what’s on her mind, even if it might get her into trouble. The 33-year-old recently appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to talk about her latest film, A Simple Favor. During the interview, the actress recalled her meeting with Obama in 2012, which was quite unusual as she managed to assault then-president in the process.

According to Kendrick, the story began with an unexpected invite from the White House. She said:

I got an email saying, ‘Hey, do you want to meet the president?’ Naturally, I said, ‘Of what?’ and they were like, ‘The country, you idiot.’

The actress couldn’t refuse the exciting opportunity, and was the first one to appear at the event in LA. Later, when Obama and other attendees arrived, the president started discussing the economy and during his speech, he mentioned Kendrick and her film Up in the Air.

When the two finally started chatting, the president said he hoped he hadn’t embarrassed her by singling her out. And how did Kendrick respond? She jokingly blurted out:

Yeah, you’re such an a**hole.

Luckily, Obama has a great sense of humor as he was captured doubled-over with laughter.
