Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake Take the UK
Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick are in London this week, promoting their new movie Trolls. The two have made numerous appearances, most notably on The Graham Norton Show and lighting up the London Eye. The movie is based on the troll dolls, not today’s society’s trolls.
In the video above, Graham Norton says that Kendrick and Timberlake are visiting at a very poor time. He’s not talking about Brexit or its attendant cat. He’s talking about The Great British Baking Show, which has left the BBC, and will be losing three of its four key members because of it. When the show announced its new contract with Channel 4, Mary Berry, Mel Giedroyc, and Sue Perkins, the first being a judge and the second two being hosts, announced they were done. Only Paul Hollywood – yes, that’s his name – announced he would be staying.
Kendrick, being a fan of the show, is broken up about it. Timberlake just likes to bake. Timberbake.
The two also appeared at the London Eye, attempting to light the Ferris wheel with rainbow colors. Unfortunately, it seemed the button they were pushing – continuously – didn’t work. Timberlake becomes visibly concerned, even peeking underneath the pillar to check what was wrong – but it was obviously just a prop. Ultimately, the lighting crew did their job.
These videos are both just as cute and endearing as the stars themselves. Whether Trolls ends up being worth watching, though… let’s just say we’ll wait for the reviews.
