What Anna Faris Just Admitted About Her Relationship With Chris Pratt

When Anna Faris and Chris Pratt announced that they were divorcing in 2017, fans were shocked. The couple seemed so happy together, along with their son, Jack. Since then, they have both spoken about co-parenting with each other when asked, but otherwise have remained mum about the real issues they faced in their marriage. Slowly but surely, however, Faris has divulged some details on her podcast Unqualified, during which she is surprisingly open and vulnerable with guests (and even the regular listeners who call in for relationship advice) about her personal life. 

During the March 22, 2021 episode, which featured guest Gwyneth Paltrow, Faris explained to her fellow actor what really happened with her and Pratt's marriage — and this revelation actually confirmed some theories people had thrown around when the news of their split originally broke. It was not easy, of course. The couple initially announced the break on Facebook saying, "Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we're really disappointed." But her new comments shed some light on the whole situation. 

Anna Faris finally spilled the details of her divorce

Anna Faris revealed her engagement to Mike Barrett in late 2019, the same year her ex-husband Chris Pratt married Katherine Schwarzenegger. He later welcomed his second son with his new wife in 2020, demonstrating that both have since moved on after their divorce. Thus, it's easy to look back in hindsight now and take some accountability for what went wrong between them. Faris told Gwyneth Paltrow during an episode of her Unqualified podcast that things were especially hard given that they were in the same business. It's something people suggested back when she and Pratt split in 2017, since at the time he had moved on from Parks and Recreation, got super buff, and started starring in blockbuster action movies. 

Faris admitted, "My two other marriages were with actors and I don't think we did a great job of eliminating competitiveness. Or at least I didn't, being a proud person, and not wanting to reveal vulnerability." She added, "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." It's interesting for her to admit that, especially since she's a talented actress in her own right and just spent years starring in the hit CBS sitcom Mom. But emotions are never logical, right? Going into her third marriage, Faris will surely be more prepared than ever to make it last.
