You won't catch Anna Faris with a frown on her face. Despite her recent split from husband Chris Pratt, the actress has been in high spirits, according to her costar Allison Janney. The actresses are currently filming the next season of Mom, and while on set, Janney revealed the actress has been "fantastic."
"She's fantastic. She's a professional," Janney, 57, told Us Weekly at the Television Academy's Performers Peer Group Celebration in Beverly Hills on Monday. "It's hard to do, but she's coming to work with a smile on her face and knows her lines and is as professional as ever."
She added, "Everyone there loves and supports her, and we're just surrounding her with love. She's getting her work done. She's great."
Since announcing the shocking split earlier this month, Faris has made multiple statements to fans via her podcast, Anna Faris Is Unqualified. "Hey, dear listeners: I just want to thank you all so much for all the love I’ve been receiving, and I truly love you,” she said at the top of the episode.
In a separate episode, Faris spoke a little more candidly about the separation when a caller asked for relationship advice. "Life is too short to be in relationships where you feel this isn’t fully right or somebody doesn’t have your back or somebody doesn’t fully value you. Don’t be afraid to feel your independence if things aren’t right.”
She continued, alluding to her own marriage, saying, "I made that mistake, I think, a little bit, like, ‘I’m checking my relationship off the list,’ and if that would be the final piece of advice I could give you, that would be know your worth, know your independence."
While attending the Teen Choice Awards last weekend, Pratt accepted his award for Choice Sci-Fi Movie Actor, though during his acceptance speech he made no mention of Faris. During the event, he was also spotted without his wedding ring.
