Anna Faris and Chris Pratt had been married for 8 years and have continued to support each other despite their breakup. Though both of them are in the acting industry, they have only done two films together. Their first film, Take Me Home Tonight was the foundation of their love story meanwhile their second film, What’s Your Number? happened after the duo tied the knot.

Sharing her experience of working with her then-husband on the set of the rom-com film, she stated,


“It was a blast working with him. He makes me laugh all the time.”

While she was happily working with her beau at the time, she also quoted the experience as “scary.” It was because she was conscious about what Pratt would think of her intimate scenes with others.

“I felt a little more vulnerable doing our scenes together because I’m always concerned about what he thinks. When it’s somebody who’s really close to you, you care about their opinion a little bit more.”

The 2011 rom-com film starred the actress in the leading role opposite the latter’s former co-star, Chris Evans. Meanwhile, Pratt played one of the former’s character ex-boyfriends in the film. The adult-oriented comedy film revolved around a female protagonist who explores stability in her romantic life after sleeping with 19 men.

While the Brokeback Mountain star was concerned about her then-husband’s reaction to her love scenes, it was just the opposite. She further added that the 43-year-old actor was less focused on the love scenes and supported her for the gig.

She told Reuters,

“He’s really supportive and so proud. As actors, we don’t show up on the days when the other is supposed to be intimate with another person.”

She continued,


“I wouldn’t want my husband sitting behind the cameras while I’m in bed with Zach Quinto or Joel McHale. Chris is so great about that.”

The duo got married in 2009 sharing a son, Jack. Even after they split in 2017, they kept an amicable relationship to support their kid. The duo has moved on in their lives as Faris tied the knot with cinematographer, Michael Barrett. Meanwhile, Pratt married author, Katherine Schwarzenegger with whom he shares two daughters.
