Amidst the announcement that Anna Faris and Chris Pratt were separating, rumours propelled suggesting that the Passengers actor had had an affair with his costar Jennifer Lawrence.
Now that Anna Faris’ book Unqualified has been released this week, the actress has opened up to readers about the rumours.
“Even before they met in person, my publicist, out of the blue, pulled me aside and said, ‘Anna, listen, there are going to be paparazzi all over them’.
“There are going to be shots of them laughing together on their way to the set. There are going to be stories circulating, and you have to brace yourself for this.”
As Chris has had a number of onscreen romances with stars like Aubrey Plaza in Parks and Recreation, Anna was surprised to find these new rumours about Jennifer were affecting her and leaving her "insecure".
“Jennifer and I are really friendly, and she was apologetic even though she didn’t need to be, because she hadn’t done anything wrong.
“She’s awesome, but of course it’s hurtful and also embarrassing when people are saying your husband is cheating on you, even if it’s patently untrue. You still feel, and look, like a fool.”
Anna and Chris announced they were legally separating in August, writing:
"We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward.
"We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another."
