Anna Kendrick threw out diamonds from fan

Actress Anna Kendrick once threw a pair of diamond earrings in the trash after an obsessed fan tracked down her address and sent her the pricey gift in the mail.

The Pitch Perfect star warns devotees she has a strict rule about presents delivered to her private residence - and she won't hesitate to discard them, no matter how expensive and lavish the gifts are.


During an interview with podcast host Marc Maron, she explains, "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. For real diamond earrings. 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."
