Among celebrity couples, Anna Faris and Chris Pratt seem to have one of the most enviable relationships in the public eye, but every celebrity romance faces ugly gossip at one time or another and the Faris-Pratt marriage is no different. While hosting her podcast, Anna Faris is Unqualified, Anna told guest Isla Fisher that she let herself fall prey to the rumors that Pratt had been cheating, instead of standing firm, armed with the truth. Faris describes the turmoil she felt in her heart as she allowed herself to believe the vicious tabloid gossip.
Anna Faris Was Almost Beaten By Chris Pratt Cheating Rumors
Glamour reports that Chris Pratt and Anna Faris became victims of tabloid gossip last year when the media started circulating rumors that Pratt was having an affair, and while most celebrity couples rise above such rumors, Faris admits that the lies bothered her. During her recent talk with Isla Fisher, Anna admitted that the cheating rumors weren’t easy to dismiss, adding that she was left feeling insecure in herself and in her marriage.
“I just remember feeling so hurt in a way that bothered me because I didn’t want to think of myself as somebody who could be bothered by … tabloid sh**,” Faris revealed.
Faris added that, while she does have a great relationship with Mr. Pratt, there is room for doubt when Chris is away shooting films on exotic locations while Faris stays home to raise their child. She says a long distance test of their relationship left her feeling vulnerable, just as it would with anyone.
Anna should be commended for her honesty on Anna Faris is Unqualified because it’s a level of openness rarely seen in celebrities, particularly in the face of such malicious gossipmongering perpetrated by some segments of the media. We all remember those high school cliques running around trying to sabotage the school’s happiest couples out of sheer jealousy, so it’s not too difficult to imagine how Anna Faris felt.
In that respect, Heathers (1988) wasn’t as far-fetched as we like to pretend.
Chris Pratt And Anna Faris Set Relationship Goals For The Rest Of Us
Ultimately, Chris Pratt and Anna Faris were able to weather those cheating rumors, and as InStyle suggests, their relationship is stronger than ever, reaffirming their fans’ faith in the relationship, which has become the envy of millions. If there is any doubt that Pratt and Faris are as in love today as they have ever been, one needs only look at Pratt’s Twitter posts.
While on the road, promoting Passengers with his highly adored leading lady, Jennifer Lawrence, Chris took the time to remember Anna’s birthday with an adorable tweet.
“Please join me in wishing Happy Birthday to my darling @AnnaKFaris,” Pratt tweeted on Tuesday. “I’m sending you love from afar, beautiful lady.”
Anna turned 40 this past Tuesday, and although she stayed home to look after their 4-year-old son, Jack, there’s no denying that Faris was touched by the sweet message. The Mom actress might have preferred to have joined Pratt on the road or to have him home, where they would enjoy their usual activities of push-up challenges, fishing trips, and wrestling matches. The birthday message was enough to melt Anna’s heart, until she could again reunite with Chris.
Anna Faris and Chris Pratt have been married for seven years. The pair often share their family moments on Instagram, where they delight their fans with envy over the happiness they give to one another.
At the time of the birthday tweet to Faris, Chris and Jennifer Lawrence were attending a red carpet photo op for Passengers in Paris, France.
Passengers will hit theaters on December 21.
