Anna Faris reveals why she got a boob job right after her divorce
It's been a tough year for love. After Anna Faris and Chris Pratt announced their separation last summer, all of us who heralded them as "couple goals" were left disillusioned. The pair, who were married for eight years, took to Instagram to break the news. “We are sad to announce we are legally separating," they stated. "We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still love each other and will always cherish our time together."
Now, the actress has opened up about the reason why she got a boob job after her first divorce, and how she was able to reconcile it with her feminist tendencies.
Explaining that the reason was mostly cosmetic, she asserted "I never, ever thought I'd do something like that. I always thought plastic surgery was caving in to 'the man,' you know? But it came down to a really simple thing: I wanted to fill out a bikini. What would that feel like? I'm still floored that I did it, because I am a staunch feminist. I kept thinking, Am I betraying my own gender by doing this?"
Eventually, however, she came to the conclusion that women should be able to do whatever they want with their bodies, regardless of whether people believe they are acquiescing to societal pressure. "I wish that we were more supportive of each other," she stated. "I think that people should be able to do whatever they want, whether it's getting braces, bleaching their hair, getting extensions, getting a boob job, getting vaginal surgery, or getting a nose job."
The House Bunny star also spoke candidly about how much weight she gained while pregnant with her five-year-old son with Pratt, Jack, and revealed that she gained 70 pounds. "I wish it was all in my belly, but it was on my arms, my thighs, my ass. I remember at the time thinking, This is incredible," she told Women's Health. "I'd never enjoyed food more and I didn't care. My vanity was completely tidal-waved by the need to just nourish this thing. Nothing was going to stop me."
"Finally, my doctor was like, 'Okay, you're, uh, gaining at a pretty rapid pace.' Well, yeah! For the first time in a long time, I had absolutely zero concern about my weight. It felt really good."
Faris, who split from Pratt back in 2017, recently opened up about the state of their relationship currently, and it sounds incredibly healthy. "What Chris and I try to do is to communicate openly. We reiterate that there aren't rules to this. We have a lot of love and friendship, and our big goal is to protect Jack. I cherish my family, my close friends, my child—that makes the rest of it worth it," she asserted.
