Hey, for some people diamonds are precious — for others, they’re absolute garbage! Yeah, Anna Kendrick, we know what you did. During a recent sit-down with WTF With Marc Maron, the 29-year-old actress shared an anecdote about her strangest experience with a fan and, we don’t mean to spoil it, but she committed a crime by the end of it. OK, not a real crime, but you’ll see…
“I got [a gift] with, like, a really long love letter about how he really felt like we should be together, and if I would just give him a chance, and he didn’t want to do it over social media because he thought that would pressure me because it was public… he [wanted] to be a gentleman,” Kendrick stated, quoted through E! News.
“And he, uh, sent me a pair of diamond earrings… For real, diamond earrings. I did go and check.”
And this is when tragedy strikes: “And I was just like, these have to go into the trash. I can’t. I cannot. I cannot wear them. I can’t give them to someone. It’s too weird. If the teddy bear goes in the trash, these go in the trash, these go in the trash. Just on principle. So, I had to throw them away.”
What the flock of seagulls?! She threw them away? Anna Kendrick received real diamond earrings and just tossed them like week-old chicken soup? We need a minute here… OK, obviously the fan who sent the earrings went a little bananas in hoping to romance Ms. Kendrick through a lengthy love letter. His letter was probably, albeit unintentionally, really creepy. But you can’t just throw diamonds in the garbage, isn’t there a law or something?
If someone sent us earrings — be it a convict, a serial killer in the making or a lonely college freshman — we would keep them. If the earrings spent three days in a raccoon’s colon, we would keep them. They are diamonds, for Pete’s sake. You can sell them, donate them, gift them or just send them back. You know what you can’t do? Throw them in the trash.
On that note, this is the only time we are going to endorse digging through someone else’s garbage. Maybe Anna Kendrick tosses Fabergé eggs too? Or Ferraris?
