Anna Faris Age, Acting
Anna Kay Faris was born on November 29, 1976 in Baltimore, Maryland. She was born to guardians Jack and Karen. The two teachers urged her to investigate her passion for acting right off the bat in her adolescence. Faris was brought up in Washington State and has an older sibling named Robert. After finishing up her high school studies, Faris went to the University of Washington. She graduated with an English writing degree in 1995.
With barley any acting credits to her name, Faris discovered a huge source of popularity when she was cast in the Wayans Brothers' satire horror parody Scary Movie in 2000. In the film, which takes jabs at the 90s’ teen horror movies like Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer, Faris plays the terribly foolish Cindy Campbell who becomes involved with senseless bouts of funny horror.
In an interview with Pilot Online, Anna spoke about her famous character, "Cindy is genuinely not perplexing. She's totally one-dimensional. I would prefer not to be blamed for copying Sarah Michelle Gellar in the 'Scooby-Doo' motion pictures. That is to say, I like Sarah Michelle. I would prefer not to make her frantic, yet Cindy is extraordinary. Cindy Campbell is sincere and genuine. She shows at least a bit of kindness of gold and no comical inclination, truly."
Faris was married to actor Ben Indra in a four year union that lasted from 2004 to 2008. She got married to actor Chris Pratt before he became famous with his breakout role in the Marvel Universe film, Guardians of the Galaxy. They featured in various movies together but they sadly announced their split in 2017. The couple share a child, Jack who was born in 2012. It was speculated that they broke up because Faris couldn’t handle the rising stardom of her husband and was insecure about his relationships with other females.
After many months trying to find her identity, she started to open up about her marriage to Pratt. She realized that she had to move on if she was ever going to find happiness. She started to date cinematographer Michael Barrett and was happy to start a new chapter.
