Faris on Pratt cheating rumours
Anna Faris has recalled feeling self-conscious as rumours continued to mount about an alleged affair between Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence.
“Even before they met in person, my publicist, out of the blue, pulled me aside and said, ‘Anna, listen, there are going to be paparazzi all over them’,” Faris penned in her new memoir, Unqualified, via the Daily Mail.
“There are going to be shots of them laughing together on their way to the set. There are going to be stories circulating, and you have to brace yourself for this.”Controversies rock Hollywood in 2017
Though Faris, 40, didn’t think it would bother her, as Pratt, 38, had worked with Aubrey Plaza on Parks and Recreation and Bryce Dallas Howard in Jurassic World, Faris noted how the “false rumours” made her feel “insecure”.
“Jennifer and I are really friendly, and she was apologetic even though she didn’t need to be, because she hadn’t done anything wrong,” Faris described.
“She’s awesome, but of course it’s hurtful and also embarrassing when people are saying your husband is cheating on you, even if it’s patently untrue. You still feel, and look, like a fool.”Last Jedi set for $215m opening in US
Following a Star magazine report from 2015, Faris said she felt “blindsided” by rumours of Pratt’s infidelity.
“We have an incredible relationship, it has been weirdly stinging,” Faris told Us Weekly at the time. “This has been blindsiding to us.”

“We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed,” the former pair posted on Facebook.
“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.”
