Anna Faris, whose husband Chris Pratt shot to fame in recent years, admits the recent tabloid reports about her husband being unfaithful were “stinging”.
The 38-year-old actress, who has a son Jack with the Jurassic World star, said the rumors about their marriage have been “a little devastating” for the couple.
The rumors were sparked by tabloid claims Faris worried Pratt might cheat on her with Jennifer Lawrence, his co-star in the upcoming movie Passengers.
Anna walked the red carpet alone at Monday night’s TCA Stars for CBS in Hollywood.
Her husband is currently filming The Magnificent Seven in Louisiana.
The House Bunny star discussed the affair rumors, saying, “This has been blindsiding to us. We have an incredible relationship. It has been weirdly stinging”.
Faris, who stars in the CBS comedy Mom, said the experience has given her a fresh perspective of what it’s like living in the limelight.
The actress said, “I had always kind of believed that part of the rumors of celebrity couples were sort of true because they had never been part of my life. I was like, ‘Oh, maybe there’s a kernel of truth to that’. It’s been a little devastating because for us, it’s like, ‘What the heck?'”
Anna and Chris met on the set of the film Take Me Home tonight in 2007 when Faris was more famous than Pratt.
Faris was starring in the Scary Movie franchise, recurring roles on TV shows such as Friends and Entourage and the leading role in the big screen comedy The House Bunny.
Chris starred in NBC’s Parks and Recreation in 2009 and he soon began starring in movies.
Pratt landed roles in Moneyball and Zero Dark thirty before 2014’s Guardians Of The Galaxy really made him a big star.
In August 2012, the couple welcomed son Jack and Faris said she knows Pratt is committed to her and their little boy, who turns three this month.
Anna said she feels lucky to be with a man who values family.
These days the couple’s busy schedules mean they spend long periods of time apart.
In June, Chris Pratt told Entertainment Tonight, “These are the work years. The gravy years are to come. The way we work it out is we just take at least one moment every day to be present with one another, he said. ‘Whether or not we’re in the same room, or the same state, or even the same country, we check in, you know?'”
