Anna Faris admitted her high-profile marriage to Chris Pratt didn’t always go according to script, mere weeks before the Hollywood stars announced their separation.
The actress, who married Pratt in 2009, briefly discussed the challenges that come with being married to another celebrity during an interview with People magazine three weeks ago.
“I don’t think that’s something, when you’re an actor, that you’re prepared for,” the actress told People of surviving the spotlight as a power couple.
“There are two different roles that you play — the one on-camera and the one in public,” she said in the article published on July 27. “That’s the tricky part.”
Pratt and Faris — who became known for their and adorable red carpet interactions and syrupy social media posts about each other — announced their decision to split late Sunday evening by releasing a joint statement.
In the announcement, the stars said they “still have love for each other” and will “cherish” the time they spent together.
“We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed,” they wrote in the statement shared to Facebook.
Faris’ recent comments to People aren’t the first time that “Mom” star has indicated her marriage to Pratt — with whom she has a 4-year-old son, Jack — had its rocky moments.
She divulged on her “Anna Faris is Unqualified” podcast last December that unsubstantiated rumors that Pratt had cheated on her left her feeling rattled.
“I take pride in how great my relationship is with Chris, but having said that, of course, in this crazy world where he’s off doing movies and I’m in L.A. raising our child, of course I’m going to feel vulnerable, like any normal human would,” Faris said on the podcast.
Faris, who was married to Ben Indra when she met Pratt in 2007, got engaged to the “Parks and Recreation” star in 2008.
Pratt has since skyrocketed into major fame in recent years thanks to starring roles in blockbusters like “Jurassic World” and the “Guardians of the Galaxy” movies.
