She has her body insecurities
Beginning with her face. With a scar on her upper lip and an overall feeling that they were too thin, she started getting injections around 2008 while filming The House Bunny.
“Turned out, after doing it long enough, the injection became very apparent,” admits the actress. “One day a bunch of my friends were like, ‘Hey, Anna, your lips are getting pretty big.’ At that point, I had to wean myself off the injections.”
Though she says the procedures were ultimately mistakes, she doesn’t regret her boob job. As a “huge point of insecurity from an early age,” the idea came to her while also filming The House Bunny.
Sewed into a padded bra daily, “I started to embrace [my character’s] kind of sexuality and it was really liberating,” she says. At the same time, she was dating Pratt: “I feel silly saying this, but he brought out something in me that made me want to be feminine in a very traditional way.”
When she told him of her idea, he said he’d love her body no matter what. Done deal. “I did it for myself,” writes a proud Faris. “I wasn’t doing it for Hollywood — I’d be wearing padded bras for my whole career, so it wasn’t like I thought that implants were going to suddenly help me get ahead. But I wanted to feel sexy in a way that I hadn’t been feeling, and I’ll be honest, after getting the surgery, I did.”
Her one request: Stop the shaming. “It does bother me that women are very much criticized by other women for these kinds of choices.”Back to top
