Anna Faris is an American actress. Although she has played many roles, she is mostly known for playing the lead Cindy Campbell in the Scary Movie film series from 2000 to 2006. The movie made a whopping $300 million at the box office making Faris a household name.
Faris has been acting since she was only 9 years old. She loves the craft and believes that she is fortunate enough to be a part of the industry and to have a chance that not many people get. Although she has a considerable number of accolades, she is often remembered for being Chris Pratt’s ex-wife.
The two of them starred in the 1999 horror movie called Lover’s Lane. That is where their love story began, they started seeing each other soon after. Anna Faris was married to Indra for four years from 2004 to 2008.
According to sources, Indra proposed TWO TIMES to Faris before they finally tied the knot. Faris ended the relationship when she realized she had feelings for Chris Pratt.
In her autobiography titled Unqualified, she boldly accepted that she developed feelings for Pratt even though she struggled to be honest about it with herself.
Faris ended up paying Indra over $900,000 in acting royalties and property split.
After Indra, people believed that Faris had found true love with Chris Pratt. They met on the sets of the Take Me Home in 2007 and grew close.
Pratt was madly in love with her. He even admitted that he would have married the day they both met, but that would have been crazy so they slowed down. However, they could wait for too long and decided to elope in 2009.
The happy couple welcomed a son in 2012. The news of their separation in August of 2017 came as a shock for everyone.
Pratt wrote on his Facebook page “We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another.”
In their divorce settlement, they agreed to live within a five-mile radius for the sake of their then six-year-old son.
Fans hoped they would get back together, but both had moved on. Pratt went on to marry Katherine Schwarzenegger in 2019.
Faris was happy that Pratt had found someone and even congratulated the two. She had gone on to meet cinematographer, actor, and director Michael Barrett in 2017 while they worked together on Overboard.
Less than two months after her divorce, news of the two of them hanging out was out in the media.
They even got secretly married in a courthouse in Washington State in 2021. She said in her podcast that they are “both introverts in a very similar way”. Barrett has two kids from his previous marriage.
Why Did Her Marriages Fail?
Although Faris has not had many boyfriends, she had two failed marriages, which can quickly become a label. In her podcast called Anna Faris Is Unqualified, she talked to Gwyneth Paltrow about her marriages.
She said that “My two other marriages were with actors and I don’t think we did a great job of eliminating competitiveness. Or at least I didn’t, being a proud person, and not wanting to reveal vulnerability.” She added that she hopes she has grown from that.
Faris remains to be on good terms with her exes. She also seems to have found the right match in Barrett.
