Anna Faris sat down for an honest interview with Gwyneth Paltrow, in which she talked about two failed marriages.
The actress suggested on her Anna Faris Is Unqualified podcast that her marriages possibly failed because they struggled with “eliminating competitiveness.”
“My two other marriages were with actors and I don’t think we did a great job of eliminating competitiveness,” Faris said. “Or at least I didn’t, being a proud person, and not wanting to reveal vulnerability.”
“Any hint of competitiveness and comparison, I didn’t handle that very well, I don’t think,” she continued. “And I hope I’ve grown from that.”
In August 2017, Faris and Chris Pratt announced in a joint statement that they were legally separating after eight years of marriage. At the time of their split, Faris’ TV series Mom was heading into its fifth season, while Pratt was coming off the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, with an appearance on Avengers: Infinity War and the lead role in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom slated for the following year.
Pratt has since enjoyed a meteoric rise that to Guardians of the Galaxy and The Lego Movie, which became the first and fourth highest-grossing films that year, respectively. While their careers appeared to be headed in different directions, Faris was still building out an impressive resume, which included a soon-to-be syndicated TV show, and a podcast that has been running for six years.
Faris was previously married to Ben Indra from 2004 to 2008.
She is now engaged to cinematographer Michael Bennett.
