Chris Pratt and Anna Faris’ Relationship Mirrored That of the Couple They Played in a Movie
For a while, movie stars Chris Pratt and Anna Faris seemed to have the ideal marriage. They were affectionate and quirky and appeared to have a lot of fun together. Although the couple went their separate ways, for a while, they seemed as though they were living the sort of happily-ever-after that comes at the end of a rom-com. However, the end of the relationship was more similar to how their characters parted in the movie that brought the actors together.
Anna Faris and Chris Pratt met on a movie set
The relationship began classically for a Hollywood couple. Chris Pratt and Anna Faris met in 2007 on the set of the movie Take Me Home Tonight. Faris was still married at the time — to fellow actor Ben Indra. Although she and Pratt insisted that they didn’t become romantically involved at the time, she filed for divorce from Indra shortly after they met.
By the time the movie premiered in 2011, everything had changed. Faris and Pratt got engaged in 2008, and they were married in 2009. Although they said they didn’t start dating during the filming of Take Me Home Tonight, Pratt did credit their time on set with sparking their relationship.
“This is a pretty spectacular moment for us,” he said at the premiere (via PopSugar), “to be able to come to this movie that we met on and fell in love making.”
Their marriage fell apart
Pratt and Faris welcomed a child together, Jack, in 2012. Although the couple appeared happy in the years after Jack was born, Pratt started to move into leading man roles. Along with that came rumors that he wasn’t always faithful. In 2016, he took some time off work to spend time with Faris. However, the couple announced in 2017 that they were separating. Their divorce was final the following year.
In Take Me Home Tonight, Faris portrayed Wendy, while Pratt played her boyfriend, Kyle. The pair get engaged early in the film, but Kyle doesn’t support Wendy’s dreams. She breaks up with him at the end of the movie.
Faris later spoke about why she and Pratt split. It had to do, in part, with their careers. “I don’t think we did a great job of eliminating competitiveness,” she said on her podcast, Anna Faris Is Unqualified.
Pratt and Faris both moved on
It didn’t take long for Chris Pratt and Anna Faris to find love again. Pratt started dating Katherine Schwarzenegger, and in 2019, he proposed to her. Faris said that he texted her with the news shortly after the engagement, and she was so happy for him that she even offered to officiate their wedding.
The following year, Pratt and Schwarzenegger had a daughter together. Although there was some drama around a social media post that Pratt made at the time, Faris insisted she was happy that Jack had a sibling.
According to People, Faris quietly eloped with cinematographer Michael Barrett in 2021. The two have been together for a while, having met in 2017 while they were working on the movie Overboard.
