The world was #shookt when beloved Hollywood couple Anna Faris and Chris Pratt announced their separation, yet the two have remained tight-lipped about their marriage since the announcement.
However, very telling insights on what went wrong in the relationship seem to have surfaced after a recent essay from her new book “Unqualified” was posted on Cosmopolitan, where the comedy actress refuted the idea that couples should be each other’s “best friends”.
Some excerpts read:
“I was once told that I didn’t need a tight group of girlfriends because Chris should be my best friend. But I never bought that. The idea of your mate being your best friend—it’s overhyped. I really believe that your partner serves one purpose and each friend serves another.”
The “House Bunny” actress also admitted that in her 20’s, she branded herself as “one of the boys”, only later realizing how a core group of friends is so important.
“I didn’t realize until later how lame I sounded, bragging as though having a lot of girlfriends was a bad thing. I touted my male friends as if my association with them spoke to how cool I really was. I was selling my own gender down the river, and I wasn’t even getting any fulfillment from the relationships with those dudes.”
