This is Anna Kendrick, big-time Hollywood actress.
And all I’ve gotta say is… dayum!
And this is Anthony Beauvillier, hockey player for the New York Islanders.
Beauvillier decided to reach out to Kendrick on Twitter and, to his surprise, he got a little help from his friends. Actually, I’m not sure if he even knows these people, but they’re probably his friends now.
Here’s how Beauvillier tried to get Kendrick’s attention.

Okay, probably not the most original introduction in the history of mankind, but, still, he gave it a shot.
But then something miraculous happened. People on Twitter got behind “Beau” as he’s known to hockey fans and they started to chip in with stories (that could possibly be categorized as “tall tales”) and compliments to help boost Beauvillier’s image to Kendrick so she’d go out on a date with him.
There was the time Beau saved those kittens.
Beau, thank you again for saving all those kittens at that animal shelter in the Bahamas when the Hurricane hit. Still amazed that you swam to Miami with them on your back.

And then he gave another fan a kidney.
Waited five years for a donor until this guy gave me his kidney. Can’t thank you enough dude

And remember when Beau saved all those puppies? And this guy thankfully mentioned how HUGE Beau’s cup is…hint hint.
hey man thanks for letting me use your gear during that fundraiser you held for the animal shelter to save puppies. Your cup was way too big but other than that everything worked fine. Thanks again!

Apparently, the guy is handy in the emergency room as well.
Thanks for performing open heart surgery on me man, I appreciate it

All in one day?!?! This guy can do it all!
Remember Beau when you saved me from a burning building, cooked me a 7 course meal and taught me 8 languages , that was a great day

And then we have this absolute gem.
The folks at @NASA called, looks like they’re gonna need you to save the world from another planet-ending asteroid again. Yeah I know, it’s getting old saving the world, but face it you’re our only hope!
Thanks, the entire world owes you for your sacrifice!

Finally, this friend of Beau’s went above and beyond in the compliment department…

Some really great friends right there, don’t you agree? I’d think any lady would be hard-pressed to deny a guy like this a date.
Here’s how Anna Kendrick responded to all the hoopla on Twitter.
These replies have been my entertainment for the last two days. Thank you all for regaling me with the true tales of this man’s heroism.

Nothing further on this story yet…we’ll see if this one ends up in a love connection.
What do you think? Would you have been so bold?
