These days, they’ve both moved on and work as co-parents to their 8-year-old son Jack.
On Monday’s episode of her podcast, “Anna Faris Is Unqualified,” the “Moms” alum opened up about the split and how she’s feeling about it years later.
“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 said, per E! News. “In hindsight, it felt like my hand was forced. I don’t think it was ever an independent decision.”
The star admitted that she never opened up about the struggles she was facing with Pratt.
“I think it stunted me in a lot of ways,” Faris explained. “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.”
Before Pratt, Faris was married to Ben Indra from 2004-2008.
Later in the episode, a caller opened up about wanting to call off her engagement before the wedding, a sentiment that Faris endorsed.
“I really feel like calling off an engagement is a smarter, stronger, braver move than what I did,” the actress said, though she didn’t clarify which relationship made her feel that way. “Which was like, well, I guess everyone is expecting this, so let’s just go through with it.”
Nowadays, Faris is preparing for her third marriage with her fiance and “Overboard” cinematographer Michael Barrett, though they keep their relationship very private.
