Jennifer Lawrence’s Relationship with Chris Pratt Made Anna Faris “Insecure”

By  | 

When Chris Pratt and Anna Faris announced that they were separating after eight years of marriage, we were shocked. We were even MORE surprised, however, when people started to blame Jennifer Lawrence for the split a few days later.

We’re not really sure where those rumors came from, but they could’ve stemmed from an earlier report that the 40-year-old actress was worried that her then-husband would cheat on her with his Passengers co-star. Anna shot down that story by saying, “[That] stung a little bit harder than I thought it would, [but] I am very lucky that I am with a man [who] values family.”

The Mom star admits now, however, that Chris’ on-set relationship with J.Law actually DID affect her in a negative way.

“Before [Jennifer and Chris] met in person, my publicist pulled me aside,” AF wrote in her new book, Unqualified, which was written before the breakup. “‘Anna, listen there are going to be paparazzi all over them,’ she said. ‘There are going to be shots of them laughing together on their way to set. There are going to be stories circulating, and you have to brace yourself for this.'”

She continued, “I didn’t think it would bother me. I’ve been in this business a while now and I had seen Chris star alongside other beautiful women. […]”

But while she didn’t THINK she’d be bothered by Jen and Chris’ friendship, she really felt “insecure” thanks to the stories that emerged.

“I’d always taken pride in our relationship, and the coverage, even though it was just false rumors, was making me feel insecure,” she explained.

Anna revealed that the Hunger Games star actually apologized to her about the tabloid reports and that they’re now “friendly” with each other.

She wrote, “Jennifer and I really are friendly, and she was apologetic even though she didn’t need to be because she hadn’t done anything wrong.”
