Actress Anna Faris was born in Baltimore on November 29, 1976. She began acting as a child and appeared in many theater productions growing up. In high school, she got her first experience on film by starring in a frozen yogurt commercial.
After graduating from the University of Washington, where she earned a degree in English literature, Faris appeared in the 1999 film Lover’s Lane. On the set of the film she met Ben Indra, whom she married in 2004 (they divorced four years later).
In 2000, Faris won the starring role in the Wayans Brothers‘ horror spoof Scary Movie. The film was such a success that it spawned three additional installments; Faris appeared in all of them.
Faris became known for her comedic chops, which helped her secure roles in Just Friends, My Super Ex-Girlfriend and The House Bunny. Still, she wasn’t afraid to take on more serious parts, appearing in Lost in Translation and Brokeback Mountain.
Faris was married to Chris Pratt from 2009 to 2018, and the pair share one son, Jack, born in 2012. In 2020, she confirmed her engagement to cinematographer Michael Barrett.
