Anna Faris has admitted that she struggled to talk to friends about her marital issues with Chris Pratt.
The Mom actress and the Guardians of the Galaxy star were together between 2009 and 2017 and share an eight-year-old son together.
But their marriage came to an irreparable end and Anna has said her lack of close girlfriends at the time “stunted me in a lot of ways”.
Speaking to Rachel Bilson on her own podcast titled Unqualified, the 44-year-old said: “I never talked about any issues, so to the people, even who I was closest to, I’m sure things were more transparent with my relationship with Ben, but with Chris, I think that we both protected that imagery even within our close circles.”
Anna was previously married to actor Ben Idra between 2004 and 2008.
And she has admitted that “her hand was forced” in both marriages.
She continued: “For me, I think after every breakup, at some point I realise that there were a lot of things I ignored that I really shouldn’t have.
“In hindsight, it felt like my hand was forced. I don’t think it was ever an independent decision.”
Following a call from a listener who asked for relationship advice, the actress hinted that she probably shouldn’t have even got married to Chris.
“I really feel like calling off an engagement is a smarter, stronger, braver move than what I did,” she said.
“Which was like, well, I guess everyone is expecting this, so let’s just go through with it.”
Their divorce was finalised in 2018 after they announced their split in August 2017.
Chris released a statement for the both of them on Facebook at the time which said: “Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating.
“We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed.”
The split was amicable and they now co-parent their son.
Anna is currently engaged to cinematographer Michael Barrett, while Chris married Katherine Schwarzenegger in 2019.
