On Monday’s episode of WTF with Marc Maron, Anna Kendrick revealed that she threw away some diamond earrings a fan sent her. She mentioned that her policy on gifts from fans, in case you’re thinking of sending her some chocolate chips cookies or an original Van Gogh, is that it all goes in the trash.
When she received some diamond earrings from a fan who professed his love for her, she had to follow through with her policy. “I got [a gift] with, like, a really long 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. And he, uh, sent me a pair of diamond earrings,” she explained on the podcast.
“For real diamond earrings,” Kendrick continued after Marc asked if they were legit. “I did go and check. 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. Just on principle. So, I had to throw them away. If you send something to my house, it’s going in the trash.”
Kendrick prefaced the story with saying she knew she it was gonna make her sound like a d!ck.
What would you do if you were sent real diamonds by a random person who thought they were in love with you? Should Anna have donated them to charity instead?
