With two failed marriages under her belt, Anna Faris ain’t so sure she gets the fuss with marriage. Gurl, you better take that back of the ghost of Elizabeth Taylor is gonna haunt your ass!
Page Six says Anna was on Dax Shepard’s “Armchair Expert” podcast, and it wasn’t just so Dax and wife Kristen Bell could gloat about being America’s last standing annoying “it” couple. Anna opened up about how she doesn’t quite get the point of marriage anymore:
“I need to figure out what the purpose is. Is it safety for your children? Is it convention? Is it so other people respect your relationship more? For me, I’m just not quite sure where it fits, especially when it feels so easy to get married, and then the untangling — when the state gets involved.”
It’s none of the above! It’s for a tax write-off.
Anna was married to actor Ben Indra from 2004 to 2007. They split, and Anna boot, scoot, and boogied over to Chris’s trailer while doing a movie together. They got hitched in 2009 and were together until last year when they broke up. It was hard to miss their breakup since every basic posted about how love was dead if those two couldn’t make it work. I guess Chris and Anna took note of the posts and realized they only have themselves to blame:
“Chris and I did talk about [it]. We got, like on the Twitter feed, ‘Love is dead’ and ‘relationship goals.’ I think what we were also guilty of — we obviously cultivated something and it was rewarding for a while. It was like ‘People seem to think we got all this s—t right.’… I had a little bit of a childish feeling of ‘Oh come on, f——king grow up!’ Like, [there was] a little bit of anger. But that’s not fair either, because I cultivated it.”
Damn, Anna. That’s some social media woke-ness! I wish some of these Insta “models” would take the same humility when they get brought down a peg for eating Popeyes! Anna is currently dating cinematographer Michael Barrett, and I guess from the sound of this interview, we’ll see the two of them in public at about the same frequency as Big Foot sightings. Thank. GAWD.
