Anna Faris’ insecurities seem to have ended her marriage to Chris Pratt.
In her new memoir 'Unqualified', she revealed that her jealousy over his relationship with Jennifer Lawrence contributed to her marriage's demise.
“Even before they met in person, my publicist, out of the blue, pulled me aside,” she wrote. “’Anna, listen, there are going to be paparazzi all over them,’ she said. ‘There are going to be shots of them laughing together on their way to set. There are going to be stories circulating, and you have to brace yourself for this.’ I didn’t think it would bother me. I’ve been in this business a while now and I had seen Chris star alongside other beautiful women, like Aubrey Plaza and Bryce Dallas Howard.”
But as the press for Passengers kicked into high gear, Anna couldn't handle it.
“I talked to Chris about how hurt I felt, even though I knew there were no truth to the stories [that he cheated on her], and he didn’t understand at first,” she wrote.
“I didn’t want to pay attention to the stories but I couldn’t block them all out, either,” she explained. “I’d always taken pride in our relationship, and the coverage, even though it was just false rumors, was making me feel insecure. Eventually Chris came around and understood why it felt sh**y.”
Jennifer and I really are friendly, and she was apologetic even though she didn’t need to be, because she hadn’t done anything wrong
“She’s awesome, but of course it’s hurtful and also embarrassing when people are saying your husband is cheating on you – even if it’s patently untrue. You still feel, and look, like a fool.”
She also said she felt “pressure from being in a high-profile relationship” and they both trouble dealing with the yo-yo spiral of their careers.
Chris recalled stories to her about how men would hit on her in front of him, and Faris mentioned how the tables have turned in his favor since her House Bunny days.
“’Sometimes I feel like I don’t have the career that I used to, and I do have moments of insecurity about that,’” she remembered telling Pratt. “I’m so thrilled and grateful that you are doing the things you are, and I have crazy pride in the fact that your talents are recognized, but it can be hard not to have a moment of self-doubt when my husband is acting with young women in big movies and I’m playing a role in Mom that, while I love it, is incredibly unsexy.”
“And I am really happy to celebrate your celebrity,’” she insisted. “’Like when we’re in a restaurant, and someone asks to take a picture with you and hands me the camera, mostly I love it…but truth be told, it’s not like I don’t walk away with, say, 4 percent of a sting.’”
In August, Pratt and Faris announced that they were seperating after eight years or marriage.
