Anna Faris would warn her son against making 1 marriage mistake
Today, Faris is co-parenting 8-year-old Jack with Pratt. She has learned some lessons from her past relationships and has important advice to share with her son.
“I don’t know if it’s too grumpy and cruel to say in a sense but if I could tell my 8-year-old son one thing that maybe he would stick to, I would really encourage him to not get married in his 20s,” Faris said on a recent episode of her podcast Anna Faris Is Unqualified.
Faris was 27 when she married Indra and 32 when she married Pratt.
In other instances, Faris have also revealed marrying actors may not have been a good idea for her.
“My two other marriages were with actors and I don’t think we did a great job of eliminating competitiveness,” she said back in March, according to Us Weekly. “Or at least I didn’t, being a proud person and not wanting to reveal vulnerability… Any hint of competitiveness and comparison, I didn’t handle that very well, I don’t think. And I hope I’ve grown from that.”
Anna Faris is married to cinematographer Michael Barrett
Nonetheless, Faris still believes in love and is married to cinematographer Michael Barrett. The pair met on the set of the movie Overboard. They have reportedly been dating since 2017 and got married in the summer of 2021.
“We had an immediate kind of intimacy,” Faris told People. “We’re both probably introverts in a very similar way. And he has two children and that has been awesome. I’ve really learned a lot about myself through his kids. It’s been really rewarding.”
She also discussed the situation of having a blended family during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
“We bought a camper van and traveled with a portable printer for school,” she shared. “Jack has been handling this whole thing like a champ. I just feel very happy that my family is safe. And I don’t think I’ve ever been so present.”
