Anna Faris Is Reportedly Dating Cinematographer Michael Barrett Following Chris Pratt Split
Both Faris and Barrett are working on the 2018 'Overboard' remake.
As saddened as we were by Anna Faris and Chris Pratt's summer split, we wish them both well, so we're thrilled that Faris may have moved on to a new beau. According to TMZ, the 40-year-old is dating cinematographer Michael Barrett. The two both worked on the set of the 2018 Overboard remake earlier this year.
E! News confirms Faris and Barrett have been spotted out and about the L.A. area several times in the last few months, enjoying dinner dates at local hotspots and getting cozy at family-friendly events.
In early August, Faris and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 star Pratt announced their legal separation after eight years of marriage.
"We are sad to announce we are legally separating," Faris wrote on Instagram at the time. "We tried hard for a long time, and we're really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still love each other and will always cherish our time together."
While the break-up seemed abrupt, subsequent interviews revealed the two had been struggling for some time. About a week after the announcement, Faris referenced her personal life as she answered a fan question on her podcast, Unqualified.
"Life is too short to be in relationships where you feel this isn't fully right or somebody doesn't have your back, or somebody doesn't fully value you," she said. "Don't be afraid to feel your independence if things aren’t right. I made that mistake, I think, a little bit, like 'I'm checking my relationship off the list.' If that would be the final piece of advice I could give you, that would be, 'Know your worth, know your independence.'"
Faris and Pratt share one son, Jack, who was born in 2012.
