27-year-old actress Anna Kendrick made waves on social media after a revealing Twitter joke about her, uh, reaction to seeing Ryan Gosling onscreen in "Gangster Squad."
Ugh - NEVER going to a Ryan Gosling movie in a theater again. Apparently masturbating in the back row is still considered "inappropriate"— Anna Kendrick (@AnnaKendrick47) January 14, 2013
Kendrick's Twitter admission garnered more than 21,000 retweets since Monday afternoon, leading Hollywood.com's Kelsea Stahler to wonder why it's such a big deal for a famous actress to talk openly about masturbation.
"Can we stop pretending it’s shocking that a woman might be inspired by a handsome movie star, especially if that handsome movie star is someone as universally lusted after as Gosling?," Stahler wrote.
The star of "50/50" and "Pitch Perfect" has a fairly active Twitter account -- Buzzfeed called it "surprisingly funny" back in October. Here's a sampling of her witticisms:
"I'll have whatever just gave that woman a screaming orgasm in the middle of this deli" #AwfulFirstDraftDialogue— Anna Kendrick (@AnnaKendrick47) January 5, 2013
How many girls are telling themselves right now: "Dammit Becky learn your lesson; even on Halloween, glitter is NEVER worth it"— Anna Kendrick (@AnnaKendrick47) November 1, 2012
Do you ever cross one thing off your to-do list and use that as an excuse to watch TV for the rest of the day? I'm asking for a friend....— Anna Kendrick (@AnnaKendrick47) October 26, 2012
