Anna Kendrick may have a sweet and innocent demeanor, but her recent scandalous tweet proved that looks can be deceiving. The actress caused quite a stir when she wrote: “Ugh–NEVER going to a Ryan Gosling movie in a theater again. Apparently masturbating in the back row is still considered ‘inappropriate.'” Did Kendrick actually get kicked out of the theater for pleasuring herself in public?
Calm down, everyone. The tweet was (probably mostly) tongue-in-cheek. After all, if she were serious, everyone would be hearing of her arrest. It was well-received by most of her Twitter followers, and was retweeted about 25,000 times by other, um, enthusiastic Gosling fans. One fan took the joke a little too seriously and replied that she does the same thing during his movies and never gets into trouble. Kendrick composed the tweet after watching Ryan Gosling’s new movie, “Gangster Squad.”
Anna Kendrick is actually in a long-term relationship with director Edgar Wright, so her comment was completely in jest. Gosling hasn’t commented, but he seems to be fairly humble about his heartthrob status. Do you think Kendrick’s tweet was tasteless, or just plain funny?
