Anna Faris stopped by Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast, and while there, she opened up about the concept of marriage following her and Chris Pratt’s divorce. As fans know, the two were married for eight years before they decided to split in August of last year.
‘We had an unbelievable marriage, and we have a great friendship now. And we love our son [5-year-old Jack] to death, and I am really proud of that because I am not sure I did that well the first time,’ Anna stated.
This was Anna’s second failed marriage, as she was first married to Ben Indra (from 2004 to 2008.)
As a result, the actress made it very clear that she is unsure what the ‘purpose’ of marriage even is!
‘I need to figure out what the purpose is. Is it safety for your children? Is it convention? Is it so other people respect your relationship more? For me, I am just not quite sure where it fits.’
Four months after they made their split public in August, Faris and Pratt filed for divorce.
Also during that time, her memoir titled Unqualified, was released and in it, she claimed they still had a lot of love for one another.
Faris continued to praise her former partner all throughout the book.
‘He brought out something in me that made me want to be feminine in a very traditional way. When we finally got together, it was hot and heavy in a way that I had never experienced before…I could not have fallen more headfirst into my feelings for Chris,’ she wrote.
Do you think Anna Faris should give marriage another try or not?
