The ‘House Bunny’ star revealed the big news on this week’s episode of her “Anna Faris is Unqualified” podcast, where she confirmed the couple had eloped in Washington state.
“I think we’ve spent the last year in a place of reflection, in a place of prioritization to some degree, a place of anxiety, a place of assessment,” Faris said. Adding, “But I’m looking around, so, my fiancé is right… he’s now my husband. Yes, we eloped.”
She continued, “It was awesome, yeah, it was great.” At the time, Faris was interviewing ‘Top Chef’ judge Gail Simmons. After the interview, she was joined by matchmaker April Beyer to take calls from listeners seeking romantic relationship advice.
At the time, she was on with a caller who spoke out about growing apart from her friends after getting into a relationship; she responded by revealing she was now married to Barrett!
During the podcast, Anna didn’t share many details about the actual wedding itself but confirmed it took place at a courthouse in Washington. “It was at a local courthouse up in Washington State, it was great.” It’s unclear why the famous couple decided to elope instead of having a grand Hollywood wedding — although the country is entering back into a COVID-19 shutdown that would keep many family members from attending. Then again…they might have just wanted to have a simple ceremony!
Anna’s husband is a cinematographer, who she met in 2017 on the set of the film ‘Overboard.’ The new couple was spotted together in September, just a month after she announced the split with ex-husband Chris Pratt. As you know, Pratt went on to marry Arnold Schwarzenegger’s daughter, Katherine.
Faris and Pratt share joint custody of their son, Jack.
The actress opened up recently about the relationship with Barrett, saying they “had an immediate kind of intimacy.”
“We’re both probably introverts in a very similar way,” she told People. Adding, “And he has two children and that has been awesome. I’ve really learned a lot about myself through his kids. It’s been really rewarding.”
Interestingly, the newly married couple spent much of the coronavirus outbreak traveling with their blended family in a “camper van.”
“We bought a camper van and traveled with a portable printer for school,” she revealed. Adding, “Jack has been handling this whole thing like a champ. I just feel very happy that my family is safe. And I don’t think I’ve ever been so present.”
