11 GIFs That Explain Why Anna Kendrick's New Boyfriend Is The Red Panda

Cutest. Couple. Ever.

Anna Kendrick is an Oscar-nominated actress, gifted singer, and world-class empress of Twitter, but there's one title she'd still really, really like to add to her resume: red panda wrangler.

In an appearance on "Late Night with Seth Meyers," Anna described spending Christmas Day at the Prospect Park Zoo, where she encountered her soulmate in the form of the red panda, a.k.a. the red cat-bear, a.k.a. the cutest mammal that will ever exist in this earthly realm.

"I'm so obsessed with them now that I've seen one in person, I started to reimagine my whole life, like, what do I have to do, how badly do I have to sell out, to be rich enough to buy a red panda?" she said.

The thing is, somewhere, someone is reading this who has no idea what the actress is talking about -- some deprived, tragic, ignorant person who simply cannot understand why Anna Kendrick would be so obsessed with a red panda, whatever the @#$% that is. So, for that person, we've rounded up eleven red pandas who completely explain the Red Panda/Anna Kendrick Love Affair, just so that person doesn't have to suffer even one second more in their sad, empty, red-panda-less existence. You are welcome, That Person.
