Anna Kendrick revealed her newfound LEGO obsession on Jimmy Fallon

By Trent Sell:

Last week, Thursday, April 9, Anna Kendrick joined Jimmy Fallon on his at home-edition of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Anna tunned in from her home in LA to talk about her newfound LEGO obsession and the release of Trolls World Tour.

Jimmy started off the conversation by asking how she was managing with social distancing in her home.

She explained that with so much more free time she is exploring her “inner kid” again. Her newfound obsession is building LEGO sets. She adds, “Well, I feel like one weird thing that’s happening is, like, I’m my own, like, kid and mother,” she told the late-night host. “Like, I feel like a kid because there’s, like, nothing to do and I’ve got all this, like, pent-up energy and I’ll, like, try to be responsible and, like, do emails and, like, clean something. And I’ll have this conversation with myself like, ‘Mom, can I, like, do some LEGOs and watch West Wing?’ And like, ‘Yeah, mom says it’s okay. Yeah, alright!'”

She continued to explain her newfound obsession and showed off her latest creation of a LEGO Millenium Falcon. “I’m doing too much LEGOs, like, I’ve never really done, like, LEGOs—like, the LEGO kits. Turns out, LEGOs are amazing,” she said, adding, “It’s so much fun. It shouldn’t be this fun. I’m a grown up, what’s happening?”

After proudly holding up her LEGO Millenium Falcon, she added that she will likely give the LEGO kit to a kid after all the social distancing is over. Yet, she still feels strangely attached to it. Anna says, “But, like, it’s hard for me to not wanna, like, build a shelf of, like, all of the LEGOs that I made. Because I do feel weirdly proud of it. Like, when you make an IKEA piece of furniture and you’re like, ‘Maybe I’m a carpenter? Maybe I’m amazing at this?'”
