Anna Faris' 'Unqualified' Memoir Features a Foreword Written by Chris Pratt: 'She Is Fierce and Very Loyal'
By Desiree Murphy
Anna Faris' new comic memoir, Unqualified, depicts her and Chris Pratt's evolution of marriage.
Originally scheduled to hit shelves Oct. 24, Entertainment Weekly reports that exact plans for the release of the book are now unclear following Faris and Pratt's shocking announcement that they are separating after eight years of marriage.
According to excerpts obtained by EW, the book features Faris marveling about the former couple's happier days, along with a foreword written by Pratt.
Talking about the mother of his 4-year-old son, Jack, he writes, "She is fierce and very loyal, she rarely punishes people. But when she does, it's powerful and terrifying, and when it's over, it's really over."
"(Power and terror are acceptable in a partner but absolutely necessary in a mother, as far as I'm concerned)," he continues. "And she does mother very well, both our son, Jack, and me, when needed."
And Faris reportedly doesn't hold back in the book. She gets candid about everything from falling in love with Pratt on the Take Me Home Tonight set (while she was still married to Ben Indra), to their spontaneous wedding in Bali, Indonesia, to feeling jealous while watching the Passengers star kiss his female co-stars. She claims Pratt would get jealous too, however, bringing up the flirty What's Your Number? scenes she filmed with their now-mutual pal, Chris Evans.
"When I met Chris, the most striking thing about him was that he knew how to be happy," Faris writes. "When I looked back at my marriage, and many of my relationships before it, I realized I had always equated cynicism, discontent, and anger with intelligence, and getting together with Chris made me reexamine that. It made me realize that being with someone who was well-liked and popular actually made me happy."
In addition to opening up about her marriage to Pratt, the rest of the book highlights the blond beauty's relationship failures and successes and touches on topics similar to her Anna Faris Is Unqualified podcast discussions.
At the time of publication, the memoir, published by Dutton, was still available for pre-order on the Penguin Random House website.
