The Unconventional Way Anna Faris And Chris Pratt Got Married

So, we already know Anna Faris and Chris Pratt's marriage unfortunately didn't end like a fairytale. The twosome — who share a son named Jack — didn't exactly go the distance, announcing in August 2017 that they were going their separate ways after around eight years of marriage. The two confirmed the news via Faris' Instagram, where she posted a screenshot of a message that read, "We are sad to announce we are legally separating. 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." The message continued, "We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together." It was then Pratt who went one step further, filing for divorce from his estranged wife four months later, with the divorce being finalized in October 2018, per People.

But it wasn't just the end of their marriage that was no conventional fairytale. It turns out Faris and Pratt's wedding was hardly the big white event you'll have seen in the movies — it was far from it.

Anna Faris and Chris Pratt had food poisoning for their impromptu wedding

Anna Faris and Chris Pratt have quite the unique story when it comes to their ill-fated marriage, as they got married on a whim while sick with food poisoning. Really. The star of "The House Bunny" opened up about their, erm, less than idyllic wedding day to The Independent in 2014, admitting, "We were in Bali suffering from food poisoning — the really rough kind, you know, sharing the toilet." How romantic! But, joking aside, it sounds like the moment they decided to throw caution to the wind and actually tie back in 2009 the knot was pretty cute. Faris was looking for chicken broth on the hotel's menu to help their tummy issues, which is when she saw their hotel did weddings. "While still feverish, Chris said, 'Let's do it.' So the staff found us some traditional Balinese clothes and a local priest. We had no idea what was going on, but we came back married." Now THAT is a unique wedding story!

Faris dished a little more on the big day on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," explaining they were actually in Bali for someone else's wedding and decided to go for it after the other guests left. That resulted in them having a Balinesian style ceremony only attended by the two of them, the officiant, and a hotel worker who filmed it all. "It was great. It was beautiful. It was a really special, spontaneous deal," Faris gushed.

Chris Pratt wore a wedding band before he married Anna Faris

The spur-of-the-moment wedding Chris Pratt and Anna Faris enjoyed came after the former told People earlier in the year that they weren't planning on doing a traditional big day, but were looking forward to tying the knot. "We're going to defy convention and not plan anything big. We're just going to go on vacation and come back married," Pratt shared, adding of why he was wearing a wedding band before they tied the knot, "She got one and I was like, 'I want one!'"

Sadly, though, we know that happiness didn't last for Pratt and Faris, though both have very much moved on from the halcyon days of their romance. Faris tied the knot with cinematographer Michael Barrett in 2021, revealing she opted to elope once again. "He's now my husband," the actor shared while confirming the news on her "Anna Faris is Unqualified" podcast. "It was awesome, yeah, it was great," she added of the ceremony. As for Pratt, he married Katherine Schwarzenegger in 2019 — and it sounds like Faris approves. "I so subscribe to the idea of, like, expanding, like, family and love with Jack," the star said during a January 2019 episode of "Anna Faris is Unqualified," admitting she'd texted her ex to congratulate him after he shared he'd proposed to his now wife. "[Katherine's] awesome," Faris added. Healthy co-parenting? We love to see it!
