Anna Faris gets candid about her love life following her split from Chris Pratt
Hollywood comedy staples Chris Pratt and Anna Faris first met on the set of Take Me Home Tonight in 2007, got engaged the following year, then tied the knot in 2009. In 2012, they had a son, Jack, in August 2012. But things weren't all rosy for the pair, as they officially announced their separation in August 2017, filing for divorce that December.
"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," the couple said in a joint statement. "We still love each other and will always cherish our time together."
It's been two years since the split, and a lot has changed for both of them. Faris has since moved on from the divorce, dating cinematographer Michael Barrett. Pratt started dating author Katherine Schwarzenegger, something he announced just a few months ago.
However, things have soon accelerated for that couple, with Pratt announcing their engagement on Instagram earlier today.
Faris has recently opened up about what it's been like to go through the divorce and sharing her son with her ex-husband on a recent episode of her podcast, Unqualified. She said:
“Chris and I work really hard ‘cause we have Jack, that is sort of the long game idea and making sure Jack is really happy, which makes us really happy. We have sort of the luxury of circumstance. You know, we are both in other loving relationships. … But it’s like, how do you not in general sink into a place of bitterness?
“I do want to reiterate though that I f**king acknowledge - we all do, everyone acknowledges - that there is bitterness and pain with all breakups and that hopefully makes us human. But the long game is just the worst, being the bigger person. It just is. It f***ing sucks until, then when it happens though, is that everyone’s happy.”
This wasn't the only thing she opened up about during the podcast - as the actress surprisingly delved into her sex life. In an answer to a call-in question from a fan, she revealed that she brings her acting talents into the bedroom as well as the movie set.
“Sometimes I’ll put on, like, my short black bob wig that I have and I play a different character, because I’m actress,” she said. “I like to play different characters sometimes in a romantic situation.
"I like that it sort of satisfies my sensibilities of getting to be someone else and it is also, like, a turn on for a partner. I also like to play really trashy girls because I am not a great lover. I’m very lazy. Usually, I like to call myself a stripper named Tragedy. It turns me on.”
It sounds like Faris isn't afraid to be honest about her personal life, or look on her life with a sense of humour!
