Fox & Friends’ Doocy And Kilmeade Try To Get Actress Anna Kendrick To Bash George Clooney

Reported by Ellen - September 27, 2011 -

Actress Anna Kendrick visited Fox & Friends yesterday to promote her new movie, 50/50. It’s a film in which Kendrick plays a newly-minted psychotherapist trying to help a young man, who’s nonetheless older than she, battling cancer. Kendrick told the Curvy Couch crew that her “patient” in the film didn’t fire her because he’s the kind of guy who, like Kendrick, tries to get along. As an example, she said both she and her “patient” were the kinds of people who would not send food back if they got the wrong order when dining in a restaurant. Then, apropos of nothing – except that Kendrick previously starred with George Clooney in a previous movie a few years ago – hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade began prodding her to bash him. I'm sure it had nothing to do with the fact that Clooney is an outspoken liberal.

At about 2:20 in the video, Doocy and Kilmeade asked if George Clooney is the “kind of guy” who would send back food.

You can see in Kendrick’s startled expressions that she was less than impressed with this line of questioning.

But Kilmeade pushed it further, asking, “You don’t think he’s past his prime?”

Finally, Gretchen Carlson rescued the discussion by changing the subject to “the new season of Twilight.”

At the end of the interview, Kendrick looked off camera as if to say, “Who ARE these people?”
