Chris Pratt and Anna Faris ended their eight-year marriage this summer, and it sounds like Jennifer Lawrence played a part in their split. In her new book, Unqualified, Faris revealed that all the rumors about Pratt cheating on her with Lawrence contributed to the couple’s shocking divorce.
Faris wrote about how she felt insecure about Pratt and Lawrence’s relationship on the set of Passengers. The actress admitted that her publicist warned her that rumors would surface and that she didn’t think they would bother her.
Once the rumor mill started churning, however, Faris started to feel vulnerable and insecure, even though she knew the rumors weren’t true.

Faris explained how Jennifer Lawrence was very nice to her and even apologized for all the rumors that were circulating. Unfortunately, Faris still felt embarrassed when she heard the cheating rumors and felt like a complete fool.
She was also disappointed with the downward direction of her career and felt a little jealous of Pratt’s celebrity status. Eventually, Faris couldn’t take it anymore, and the couple announced their divorce this past August.
Although the split surprised many of their fans, People is reporting that Faris has already moved on to a new romance. The Scary Movie star is now dating Michael Barrett, whom she met on the set of her new movie, Overboard.
Faris and Barrett were spotted hanging out last month, and sources claim they are now seeing each other on a regular basis. It isn’t clear when Faris’ romance with Barrett started, but it looks like the two are really hitting it off.
Faris’ new book is expected to be released later this month. The book chronicles how Faris first met Pratt while working on the movie, Take Me Home, and the events that led to the demise of their marriage. The two were married for eight years and share one son together.
Although Pratt has not commented on Anna Faris’ new romance, he wrote the foreword to her book.
The actor had nothing but nice things to say about his ex-wife and assured fans that they are both doing fine.
