Anna Faris Has 1 Great Piece of Advice to Give Her Son Before He Gets Married

In a conversation with Glennon Doyle on her podcast Anna Faris is Unqualified, Anna Faris opened up about the one real wish she has for her eight-year-old son, Jack’s wedding.

She explained, “I don’t know if it’s too grumpy and cruel to say in a sense but if I could tell my 8-year-old son one thing that maybe he would stick to, I would really encourage him to not get married in his 20s.”

The star of Mom married her first husband, Ben Indra, at 27 in 2004. They then divorced after four years. She married Chris Pratt, Jack’s father, in 2009, staying married until 2017, when they too got a divorce.

Doyle wholeheartedly agreed with her advice. “It should be illegal.” 

However, Anna Faris has found a new paramour.

Her current fiance, Michael Barrett, it a cinematographer. In a conversation with People, she explained what drew the couple together. “We had an immediate kind of intimacy. We’re both probably introverts in a very similar way. And he has two children and that has been awesome. I’ve really learned a lot about myself through his kids. It’s been really rewarding.”

The family spent their quarantine traveling. Anna explained, “We bought a camper van and traveled with a portable printer for school. Jack has been handling this whole thing like a champ. I just feel very happy that my family is safe. And I don’t think I’ve ever been so present.”

Anna Faris also opened up with People about processing Jack’s premature birth.

The star revealed that she would “constantly return to the why”, continuing, “I couldn’t stop searching. I was asking her if the geriatric thing had something to do with it, if the cold cuts that I ate… I couldn’t turn off my own hamster wheel in searching for answers,” 

She then explained to moms everywhere why more research needs to be done into the topic. “The truth is, in many of these cases, we have no idea why this happens… GAPPS’ No. 1 goal is prevention. And in order to prevent premature births, we need answers.”
