Anna Faris opens up about her divorce from Chris Pratt.
The 44-year-old actress was married to the “Guardians of the Galaxy” star, 41, from 2009 to 2018, from 2009 to 2018, and news of their split in 2017 came as a surprise to fans. Today they have both moved and work as co-parents of their 8-year-old son Jack.
On Monday’s episode of her podcast, “Anna Faris Is Unqualified,” the alum “Moms” opened up about the split and how she feels about it years later.
“For me, I think after every breakup at some point I realize that there were a lot of things I was ignoring that I really shouldn’t have,” she said, per E! News. “In retrospect, it felt like my hand was being forced. I don’t think it was ever an independent decision.”
The star admitted that she never opened up about the struggles she faced with Pratt.
“I think it hindered me in many ways,” explained Faris. “One of them was that I never talked about problems, so to the people, even who I was closest to, I’m sure things were more transparent with my relationship with Ben [Indra], but with Chris, I think we both protected those images, even in our closest circles. ”
Before Pratt, Faris was married to Ben Indra from 2004-2008. Later in the episode, a caller opened up that she wanted to cancel her engagement before the wedding, a sentiment Faris shared.
“I really feel like canceling an engagement is a smarter, stronger, and bolder move than what I did,” said the actress, although she didn’t clarify which relationship made her think that way. “That was like, well I think everyone expects this, so let’s just get on with it.”
Today, Faris is preparing for her third wedding to her fiancé and “Overboard” cinematographer Michael Barrett, although they keep their relationship very private.
