Anna Faris Talks Nervous Excitement Over Tell-All Book

Posted by Jeanne on September 6, 2017

Anna Faris is her own woman and, as she navigates her split from husband, Chris Pratt, the 40-year-old is opening up in an all-new way. Most of us can relate to how terrifying it is to feel vulnerable and the actress is no different.

During her Anna Faris Is Unqualified podcast, she revealed that her memoir will be released on October 24, 2017 and that readers will learn some things about her marriage.

“I feel really, really nervous because it feels really intimate,” Faris says. “I’m excited and I … you know, when I first got the book deal I thought, ‘Oh, what a great adventure.’ Now that it’s getting closer, I feel, in a sense, that I got to always hide behind characters, and now this is me and it feels a little scary.”

That makes total sense. It’s one thing to stand there and recite the words someone else wrote but it’s another to be honest, without the protection of a buffer or filter. “It’s just my experiences,” Faris says. “It’s just sort of how I felt as a really quiet kid with headgear, and then suddenly being an actress in L.A. and … basically how I haven’t felt comfortable in my own skin.”

Things you can expect to learn about:

  • How she fell in love with Pratt on the set of Take Me Home Tonight while still married to Ben Indra
  • Her wedding in Bali
  • Pratt being jealous of her flirty scenes with Chris Evans in What’s Your Number?
  • Her jealousy over his on-screen sex scenes

The foreword is written by Pratt, which may surprise some people. “She is fierce and very loyal, she rarely punishes people,” Pratt writes. “But when she does, it’s powerful and terrifying, and when it’s over, it’s really over. (Power and terror are acceptable in a partner but absolutely necessary in a mother, as far as I’m concerned). And she does mother very well, both our son, Jack, and me, when needed.”

We are probably going to pick up a copy of this book. It sounds like a page-turner!
