Anna Faris Told The Story Of Leaving Her First Husband For Chris Pratt

Despite them not being together anymore, we've got the low-down on how their relationship began.

However, the timing was more than a little awkward because Anna Faris's autobiography, Unqualified, comes out this month, meaning we'll get insight into a relationship that has now ended.

In fact, the book is dedicated to Chris and he even writes the foreword.

And in a newly released excerpt, Anna reveals how she came to end her first marriage in order to be with Chris. And it'll probably make you all the more sad that they're no longer together.

Anna explains that she met Chris on the set of Take Me Home Tonight in 2007, at around the time she realised her three-year marriage to actor Ben Indra wasn't working out.


She says she found herself feeling increasingly "jealous" of the "background actresses" Chris was hooking up with at the time, but it was only during an evening spent with costars at his apartment that she realised the chemistry between them was undeniable.

Anna says she spoke to a friend who told her that she had to act "immediately and effectively" in order to end her marriage. And she did, over the phone.

Despite Ben dismissing her and saying she was "just tired," Anna forced her decision and said: "Nope, I'm leaving you."

She writes:

I went to set and was like, "Hey everybody! I just left my husband." Pretty soon I was knocking on Chris's door and was basically like, "Hi, I'm ready to get boned."


Anna writes:

Sure, I get to proclaim that I didn't fuck Chris before I left Ben, but what is there to celebrate in that? It didn't make me a hero. After all, I wanted to. Desperately. And I had feelings for him obviously even if I wasn't honest with myself about what those were.
