Anna Faris has admitted she only learned not to believe everything she read in the tabloids when her husband Chris Pratt became the subject of spurious rumours.

Every couple in the public eye will undoubtedly be hit by reports of infidelity at some point and, despite six-years of marriage, Pratt and Faris are no exception. Their turn came after it was confirmed that he would star alongside Jennifer Lawrence in the film Passengers. The news prompted a flurry of reports questioning how long it would take before “flirty” Lawrence and an “enamoured” Pratt would fall into each other’s arms.

Faris described the reports as “devastating” despite knowing they were false, telling US Weekly that they gave her a sense of perspective on salacious gossip.

“I had always kind of believed that part of the rumours of celebrity couples were sort of true because they had never been part of my life,” she said. “I was like, ‘Oh, maybe there’s a kernel of truth to that.’

“It’s been a little devastating because for us, it’s like, ‘What the heck?’ This has been blindsiding to us. We have an incredible relationship. It has been weirdly stinging.”
