Anna Faris opens up on being cheated on and not trusting 'gut feeling'

Anna Faris opens up on being cheated on and not trusting 'gut feeling'

Having a relationship - even at the best of times - is far from simple.

It's a fact universally acknowledged that, once the honeymoon period fades into the sunset and the metaphorical sky begins to darken, relationships require hard work and compromise if they are to work out.

Chris Pratt shared a very special behind-the-scenes Avengers clip...

We'd all like to imagine that those halcyon, heady days of yore, during which we'd frolic down country lanes, marvel at Christmas lights and share alluring looks of lustful abandon over crackling pub fireplaces, could last forever. But that is fantasy, dear reader, not reality.

And when you're rich and famous, it must even harder to contend with the stark reality of a relationship that isn't quite working out as it should be.

In 2017, Anna Faris and Chris Pratt, who nearly all of us held up as virtuous paragons of true love, announced that they were splitting. Pratt wrote on his Facebook page;

"Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. 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,"

Fast forward to present day, and both actors have moved on with their love lives. Chris Pratt is married to Katherine Schwarzenegger, while Anna Faris was previously reported to be dating Michael Barrett, 48.

Now, to be clear, Faris did not imply that Chris Pratt was one of the exes she revealed had cheated on in the past in a recent interview, indeed she didn't mention any names.

Discussing exes on her podcast, with guest Kat Von D, Faris said;

"I remember suspecting an ex of cheating on me. I woke him up in the middle of the night, and I was like, “Are you f*cking so-and-so?” And he was like, “You’re crazy”’.

She went on;

"I’m pretty oblivious sometimes, you know, especially in relationships. Of course I don’t want to believe that anything [is going on]. But there was that gut feeling that was starting to grow more and more."

"I do think as women, we’re sort of taught to suppress fear or suspicion because we might be deemed as suspicious or neurotic or crazy or whatever.

So I think that in my case I was like, “OK, maybe he’s right. Maybe I am crazy.”"

She did not disclose which ex she was referring to.
