Anna Faris hasn’t always benefited from her fame.
Her acting career only got hotter after the Scary Movie actress wed fellow actor Ben Indra in 2004, thanks to her scene-stealing performances in films like Brokeback Mountain and Just Friends. In contrast, Ben’s career appeared to be stagnant. Anna, who filed for divorce from Ben in 2007, admitted to Marie Claire four years later, “That kind of destroyed my marriage.” “The gap widened too much.”
She married Chris Pratt eight years ago, and perhaps the same can be said of that union.
Anna was undoubtedly the bigger celebrity when she started dating Chris, who she later married in July 2009.
“At events, there have been times when I’ve felt like the guy with the purse, and people have simply passed me by. Additionally, actors have come up and have openly hit on my wife in front of me without even turning to look at me “He spoke to GQ in 2015. “What the f—k, dude?” I exclaimed.
Chris understood the potential effects being a part of a power couple may have on their union. “It’s something you have to handle, in my opinion. It’s a little different because she has accomplished enough to stake her life on, “said Chris. “Her accomplishments are truly amazing. She’s going to continue to be recognized for her really funny, excellent, and successful work.”
In 2014, when Chris rose to fame as a leading actor in Guardians of the Galaxy, the balance of power started to shift. Chris’ wife Anna, who gave birth to their son Jack Pratt in August 2012, was the one who was most pleased with his success. And as he booked bigger roles in movies like Jurassic World, The Lego Movie and Passengers, she found success on the small screen in Mom, in addition to making cameos in comedies like 22 Jump Street and Keanu.
it was only a matter of time before the tabloids starting dissecting their marriage. Because they were never a part of my life, I had always sort of assumed that some of the tales about famous couples were genuine.
Oh, maybe there’s some truth to that, I thought. It has been somewhat devastating because we are left wondering, “What the heck?” This has been blindsiding to us,” Anna told Us Weekly in 2015. “We have an incredible relationship. It’s been weirdly stinging.”
Months later, she told Us Weekly they tried as best they could to create a sense of normalcy for themselves and Jack. “We spend a lot of time at home cooking, building fires, and just hanging out. simply taking pleasure in the simple things. Going out has changed significantly since Chris became such a great movie star. Just altogether different odd.
Yet the reports of marital conflict persisted. “Being a public couple is a difficult concept for us. We entered the public eye for the first time perhaps a year or ten months ago. There were some rumors in the tabloids that our relationship was under stress. I simply recall being deeply saddened in a way that concerned me because I didn’t want to think of myself as someone who might be impacted by tabloid s—t. In December 2016, the Scary Movie actress revealed on her Unqualified podcast that there was a photo of her walking alone on the beach with the caption, “Aging Anna Faris, Alone on the Beach.” “I am proud of how well Chris and I get along.
Long spans of time were spent apart due to distance, but Chris never stopped telling his wife how much she meant to him. For instance, the actor exclaimed during his April Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony, “You’ve given me so much. My son is the brightest star in the galaxy that you gave me. Both of us are loved by me. Without this molecule, none of this would mean anything to me. We have joined forces to create it, and it is more essential to me than air or water.
“With every obstacle, every day, week, month, and decade, we get closer. No one else can laugh as hard as you do.
