The Daily Mail just reported that the delightful Anna Kendrick has officially split up with her longtime love, Edgar Wright. Heartbreak is always devastating, but Anna is so lovely and Edgar is such a funny and talented director (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Shaun of the Dead) that this is especially sad.
But there’s always a silver lining to every dark cloud. When one celebrity romance is over, that means another one can begin!
Now, Anna obviously doesn’t need to have a new boyfriend; she’s awesome on her own. She’s nabbed an Oscar nomination for her performance in Up In The Air, has been a part of one of the biggest franchises in movie history (The Twilight Saga) and a remix of her rendition of “Cups” from Pitch Perfect is climbing the charts.
That all said…everyone’s entitled to a little bit of rebound action and we’ve compiled three gentlemen “Dating Game style” that we’d love to see Anna hook up with next.
Anna Kendrick + Joseph Gordon-Levitt = Kissing Co-Stars
Joseph Gordon-Levitt might just be the most eligible bachelor in Hollywood. He can sing, he can dance, he can direct, he can speak fluent French, he created HitRecord, oh, and like Anna, is a former child star done good. He may need Sally Field’s help with his bow ties, but Joseph Gordon-Levitt is darling and dapper and would be perfect dating material.
Now, the two starred opposite together in 50/50 and who’s to say they can’t make their on-screen romance translate to real life? They meet up again at a movie premiere, get to chatting, and somewhere over the course of the evening while Joseph mentions his directorial debut, Don Jon’s Addiction, Anna realizes that they may not have been acting the whole time on 50/50. Or maybe they were. Either way, I think they would be adorable together as they are literally two of the most adorable people in Hollywood.
Anna Kendrick + Ryan Gosling = Crazy, Stupid, Love Affair
Okay, so before you chime in and point out that Ryan Gosling has a girlfriend and that her name is Eva Mendes, hear me out.
I believe that Ryan Gosling is so perfect that every woman alive deserves to be with Ryan Gosling and that we should all just share him. And I honestly believe that Eva Mendes should be cool with this. I’m not sure if Gosling is a gift from God or Canada, but clearly he was meant to be loved and enjoyed by all-including Anna Kendrick.
I mean, she’s already totally down with it. Remember this tweet:
Anna Kendrick might be single, but that’s a good thing. She’s young, gorgeous, talented and charming. Go forth and get it, girl!
Anna Kendrick + Aaron Tveit = Pitch Perfect Rebound
Since his breakout performance as Enjolras in Les Miserables, Broadway actor Aaron Tveit’s heartthrob status has exploded. Now, Tveit is famously private. We don’t know for sure if he’s single or taken, into guys or girls (though there is internet chatter that he prefers the ladies), but that’s kind of perfect. No really. For your first hook-up post break up, you shouldn’t really know much about what you’re getting into. All we know is that Aaron is hot and can sing, and luckily, Anna Kendrick is also hot and can sing.
Can’t you just see it now? They meet at a karaoke bar, have a couple cocktails and then get caught by the paps giggling and making out. It doesn’t have to go anywhere serious. I just really want a sketchy viral YouTube clip of them singing a duet like “Light My Candle”. Is that too much to ask?
