Anna received a Christmas Day greeting on Twitter from Canadian pro hockey player Anthony Beauvillier, 22.

'Hi @AnnaKendrick47,' he tweeted at 4:20 pm on December 25 for his roughly 24,000 followers.

Some claimed that Anthony ran into a burning orphanage to save children, rescued a grandmother from a coyote and donated a kidney. 

Anna posted her own comment two days later that read: '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.'

The actress earlier this month was in New York City filming the upcoming TV series Love Life.
