Anna Kendrick Believes You Should Only Eat Taco Bell at a Specific Time of Day

Celebrities are just like us in some respects. Even A-listers like Anna Kendrick who can afford to dine in fancy restaurants every night might find themselves hitting a fast food drive-thru on occasion. And when they do, you can often catch them enjoying some Taco Bell.

It’s definitely not gourmet Mexican fare. But there’s something so enjoyable about biting into a Taco Bell taco on occasion. The Pitch Perfect actress admitted that she does indulge in Taco Bell fare sometimes, but only under one crucial condition: it has to be after midnight.

Anna Kendrick can only eat Taco Bell after midnight

First, Kendrick headed to Twitter to express her love for a specific offering on the Taco Bell menu. “Just tried Taco Bell’s Doritos taco,” she tweeted in 2012, Insider reported. “I can see why they sold 100 million of these already. This is no joke.”

Later, the 34-year-old actress told Conan that she only enjoys Taco Bell at a certain time of day. “It’s a dirty thing that I love Taco Bell so much,” she said on the show. “I cannot, cannot eat Taco Bell before midnight. It’s like a reverse Gremlins thing. It has to be under the cover of darkness in my car. I drive out of my way for the one with the drive-thru … and I’ll just eat it in my car.”

That’s one way to avoid Chrissy Teigen’s biggest complaint about Taco Bell — soggy tortillas.

Other celebrities who love Taco Bell

Kendrick is not alone in her love for Taco Bell. Cookbook author and supermodel Chrissy Teigen has also gone on record saying she enjoys ordering from the Mexican fast food restaurant. But her suggestion for preventing soggy tacos was not immediately put into action.

In 2019, Teigen tweeted at Taco Bell: “you guys should deliver your taco meat separate from the shell so I can build it myself, thus preventing soggy tacos. I like to spread out the duration in which I eat them, sometimes I can take hours. thank u.”

The restaurant replied suggesting that Teigen “order tacos every hour” to prevent sogginess, which obviously missed the entire point of Teigen’s suggestion. Later, they came up with a build-your-own taco kit and pinged Teigen to let her know.

When asked during an interview with LA Magazine whether she loves Ariana Grande or the popular Taco Bell menu item Nachos BellGrande more, she cleverly chose both since she enjoys Gordita Crunches better than the nachos anyway.

“I’d commit several murders to keep certain Taco Bell menu items in the world. But. Eating nachos while driving: risky. Eating nachos at home: soggy,” she said. “Ariana Grande: always perfect. So Ariana Grande, and I’m going to stick to my Gordita Crunch. It’s the perfect food because it’s all the textures.”

Just remember, those Gordita Crunches are only permissible after midnight, per Kendrick’s own rules.
