Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader recently split, and according to a matchmaker, they really never were meant to be.
The two dated for almost two years, with a source saying they preferred to keep their relationship under wraps. “They’re both very private people, and with the pandemic, it’s been easy to keep it quiet,” they told People. “They’re both hysterical, so they have to make each other laugh all the time. She’s really, really happy.” Another source later told People that the two seemed great for each other. “You can see the chemistry when they’re together. They have a really fun relationship, very sarcastic and funny, but they all come from a place of love,” they shared. “They are affectionate, but it’s the way they look at each other when the other is talking, you can tell they really love each other.”
But all good things come to an end. On June 28, Entertainment Tonight confirmed with an insider close to the couple that Hader and Kendrick had indeed split. However, according to an experienced matchmaker, the relationship should not last long.
Bill Hader’s relationship was at a crucial turning point
Bill Hader is not exactly what you would call a playboy. He was married for over a decade and his relationship with Rachel Bilson lasted just over a year. Kendrick also appeared to be in for a serious romance, with the two first bonding in 2020. However, as Susan Trombetti, matchmaker and CEO of Exclusive Matchmaking, pointed out, the pair failed to survive a pivotal dating milestone. “Two years is a make-it-or-break-it point,” Trombetti exclusively explained to Nicki Swift.
Why didn’t Hader find a lasting relationship after the divorce? “Maybe he’s a commitment phobia after being married for a decade. who really knows He probably just knew those relationships weren’t for him and pulled the trigger,” Trombetti guessed. She noted that Hader quickly moved on after his divorce and probably never really came to terms with the breakup. “Maybe he’s still mourning him,” she said. “He has to regret all this and be sad. Maybe that carries over into those relationships.”
Trombetti also pointed out how in-demand actors can face unique dating hurdles. “It’s hard to choose between your career when you’re in demand and the love of your life,” she noted. “You thin yourself and think everything will work out until you realize the damage is done and there’s no going back.”
Who will Bill Hader date next?
Now that Bill Hader is a single man, Exclusive Matchmaking CEO Susan Trombetti has a few guesses as to who he’ll be dating next, and unsurprisingly they’re celebrities too.
“Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence are already a couple. I could see January Jones with him, or maybe Natasha Lyonne. “Don’t be surprised if Angelina Jolie ends up with him because she already had Brad Pitt and doesn’t need another handsome boy. She needs a laugh. Even if Tiffany Haddish is in a relationship, if it comes to a breakup I could see that too.”
If Hader doesn’t get into a relationship anytime soon, he’ll likely just be focused on his kids. After all, he has said that they are his priority. “They just want me to be their father,” he told The Hollywood Reporter of his daughters. “They just want me to sit and watch ‘Encanto’ over and over again.
