American actress Anna Faris opened about the marriage issues she had with her former husband Chris Pratt and explained why she didn’t have the liberty at that time to be more transparent about her feelings.
The Overboard actress revealed that she never had a close group of girlfriends with whom she could share the troubles of her life. While talking to Rachel Bilson on her podcast, Anna Faris is Unqualified, the 44-year-old actress divulged that none of her close friends knew what she was going through amid her divorce period with Chris.
"I think it stunted me in a lot of ways," she confessed about not having close female friendships. "One of them being that I never talked about any issues, so to the people, even who I was closest to, I'm sure things were more transparent with my relationship with Ben [Indra], but with Chris, I think that we both protected that imagery even within our close circles."
After the divorce, both of Hollywood’s stars have been moved on and maintained a friendly relationship with each other as they co-parent their 8-year-old son Jack. However, Anna admitted that amidst the divorce, there were lessons to be learned.
"For me, I think after every breakup, at some point I realize that there were a lot of things I ignored that I really shouldn't have," she elaborated.
"In hindsight, it felt like my hand was forced. I don't think it was ever an independent decision."
Anna then recalled about a caller who confessed about breaking her engagement on the show and while reflecting on that, she said:
“I really feel like calling off an engagement is a smarter, stronger, braver move than what I did. Which was like, well, I guess everyone is expecting this, so let’s just go through with it.”
