Anna Faris has recently taken to giving relationship advice. In one of her podcasts she began by saying, “Hey, dear listeners. I just want to thank you all so much for all the love I’ve been receiving, and I truly love you.” She went on to say to a caller, “Life is too short to be in relationships where you feel this isn’t fully right or somebody doesn’t have your back, or somebody doesn’t fully value you.” She added, “Don’t be afraid to feel your independence if things aren’t right. Anna Faris hinted at some difficulties in her marriage and said, “I made that mistake, I think, a little bit, like ‘I’m checking my relationship off the list’ and if that would be the final piece of advice I could give you, that would be know your worth, know your independence.”
This podcast came shortly after the actress’ split from Chris Pratt. In 2015 Chris Pratt went on the show and talked about their son Jack. He said, “It is really very easy to be patient with this kid. He is just a remarkable kid.” He continued to talk about how Jack, who was two and a half at the time, did not seem to be going through ‘the terrible twos.’ Chris Pratt accredits this to how his son seemed to have a grasp of language, and how most two year olds know what they want but do not have the vocabulary to express it yet. Chris Pratt who came off to be a beaming father continued to talk about his son stating that when he tells his son that it is time to go to bed Jack would reply by saying, “I thought about it, and no thanks dad, no right now.”
Anna Faris appeared on Conan and confessed to having had tried to give her son acting lessons. She said, “Chris and I, well mostly me, try to teach him some acting lessons,” and referred to Jack as the “back up plan.” She went on to say, “Well here is the thing, I like to be in charge. I want to be a camp counselor, I want to be a teacher. I never got to be an acting coach. I had to resort to being an actor, so anyway I get wish fulfillment from giving acting lessons.” A clip of the couple’s son Jack was shown. He was being taught by his mother to go around a corner and act as if he was afraid of a bug. In the video the little toddler can be seen walking around the beautiful kitchen counter saying, “I’m walking. I’m walking. I’m walking.” He rounds the corner and states what sounds somewhat flatly like, “Ah! A bug.” It is adorable.
Anna Faris also pranked her former husband on the ‘Ellen Show.’ Ellen DeGeneres has Anna Faris call Chris Pratt and act as though she has been arrested. Anna Faris of course pretends to freak out, and really sells the joke. Ellen DeGeneres tells her to put her clothes back on, and thinking quickly she tells Chris’ voicemail that she had been caught while changing in her car.
Recently, Chris Pratt released a statement that said, “Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating.” He added, “We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another.” At one point he called his former wife his “twin soul.”
