Anna Faris: Fame Destroyed My First Marriage
When Anna Faris' career took off, her first marriage went south.
The 34-year-old What's Your Number star, who wed actor Ben Indra in 2004, tells the October issue of Marie Claire that her scene-stealing roles in Scary Movie and The House Bunny took a toll on their three-year union.
"That kind of destroyed my marriage," she confesses. "The divide became too great."
When they split in 2007, she paid Indra $900,000 as part of their settlement and bought a bachelorette pad in L.A. Enjoying her new single girl status, Faris splurged on a boob job and became a fixture on the Hollywood party scene.
"I was like, 'F--k it, I've got nothing to lose, nobody to support.' I wore the same Garfield shirt and jeans for three weeks," she recalls. "I had a running joke with my friend: 'I hope somebody roofies me tonight!' I didn't care what people thought."
Shortly after, Faris stopped partying and got serious about her career, taking on roles in Observe and Report and Mama's Boy.
"Jonah Hill used to be our neighbor. We'd see him all the time," she tells Marie Claire. "He's doing all these projects, and he'd say [to Chris], 'You gotta do this!' All the guys are buddies, everyone's helping each other out and writing roles for each other."
