It's no surprise that we think Chris Pratt and Anna Faris are one of the cutest Hollywood couples. They're hilarious, committed, and they happen to clean up real nice. As it turns out, their evolution into a power couple happened after a long period of Pratt feeling like he was in his wife's shadow.
"I think it's something you have to manage," Pratt told GQ for their upcoming June issue. "It's a little different, because she's achieved enough to hang her hat on for her life, anyways. She's done really amazing things — she's always gonna be known for really funny and great work, critically acclaimed work and successful stuff."
The couple, who met while filming 2009's Take Me Home Tonight and got married in Bali that year, have finally achieved equal amounts of fame, but he noted that the road to get there was long and difficult. "I've had those moments, where I was like the guy holding the purse at events and people just looked right through me," he said of the days before his fame from starring roles in Parks and Recreation and Guardians of the Galaxy, among others. "And, you know, actors come up and just blatantly hit on my wife in front of me and don't even look at me. I'm like, 'What the f--k, dude?' I can think of exactly who they are, too, and I hope they f--king audition for Guardians of the Galaxy."
Their partnership isn't built entirely on a foundation of entertainment success. He also spoke about their son Jack and their plans to expand their family. "I had siblings, so did Anna — we both dream of it. Jack should have the gift of a little person to push around, whether we have kids or potentially have a surrogate or adopt kids," Pratt added. "He was premature, and Anna's 38, so the idea of going through that again — that was tough, and I think, like, that's something to truly consider."
