Anna Kay Faris Biography

Her breakthrough came with the role of Cindy Campbell in Scary Movie (2000), which spawned a film franchise and established Faris as a notable comedic actress. She appeared in the subsequent three sequels of the movie, with her last appearance being in the fourth installment, released in 2006. During the early-mid 2000s, she played supporting roles in dramatic pictures such as Lost in Translation (2003) and Brokeback Mountain (2005), and appeared in various comedies, including The Hot Chick (2002), Waiting… (2005), Just Friends (2005), and My Super Ex-Girlfriend (2006). She received critical praise for her role in the indie black comedy Smiley Face (2007) and then starred in the Playboy-themed movie The House Bunny (2008) which was billed as her star vehicle and earned her a MTV Movie Award nomination for Best Comedic Performance.

 

In 2009, she co-appeared in Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel and Observe and Report, and also had voice-over roles in Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel (she has continued to lend her voice for both films’ sequels). She starred and co-produced the feature What’s Your Number? (2011), which was followed by comedic roles in the political satire The Dictator (2012), and the anthology film Movie 43 (2013). Faris has played Christy Plunkett on the CBS sitcom Mom since 2013. The show has earned the actress further critical and popular acclaim and two People’s Choice Award nominations.

 

 

Faris was born in Baltimore, Maryland. Her family moved to Edmonds, Washington, when she was six years old. Her father, Jack, was a sociologist who worked at the University of Washington as a vice president of internal communications, and later headed the Washington Biotechnology and Biomedical Association. Her mother, Karen, was a special education teacher at Seaview Elementary Schoolin Edmonds. Faris has an older brother, Robert, who is also a sociologist and professor at the University of California, Davis. Faris was raised with her brother in a “very conservative atmosphere”, and by the time she was 6, her parents enrolled her in a community drama class for kids as they usually encouraged her to act, although it was not professionally at the beginning. She enjoyed watching plays and eventually produced her own material in her bedroom with friends who lived in her neighborhood. Faris has said in interviews she often imagined her retainer talking to her, remarking that she would picture herself “on talk shows to talk about [her] talking retainer”.

 

Faris attended Edmonds-Woodway High School (where she graduated from in 1994), and while studying, she performed onstage with a Seattle repertory company and in nationally broadcast radio plays. She once described herself as a drama-club “dork,” stating that she used to wear a Christmas-tree skirt in school and didn’t date until senior year. “I liked guys, but no one really liked me,” she recalled. She then attended the University of Washington and earned a degree in English literature in 1999.[3] Despite her love for acting, Faris admitted she “never really thought [she] wanted to become a movie star” and continued to act “just to make some extra money”, hoping one day to publish a novel. She acknowledged she had performed since she was a kid, though she felt acting was “the least practical thing” she “could do” for a living. After graduating college, Faris was going to travel to London, where she had a receptionist job lined up at an ad agency. However, she ended up living in Los Angeles “at the last minute,” once she committed to the idea of pursuing mainstream acting, eventually getting the starring role in Scary Movie.  At 22, she lived on her own in a studio apartment located at the Ravenswood in Hancock Park.

 

 

Her parents encouraged her to pursue acting when she was young, and she gave her first professional acting performance when she was 9 years old in a three-month run of Arthur Miller’s one-act play Danger: Memory! at the Seattle Repertory Theater. Due to her work, Faris was paid US$250, which was “huge” for her at the time. “I felt like I was rolling in the dough”, she recalled.[11] She went on to play Scout in a production of To Kill a Mockingbird at the Issaquah, Washington, Village Theatre, and played the title character in Heidi and Rebecca in Our Town. While attending High School, Faris appeared in a frozen-yogurt TV commercial. Around this time, “my third or fourth job was a training video for Red Robin, which is a burger chain out West. I play, like, the perfect hostess. And I think they still use it,” she said in May 2012. Faris had a small role in the made-for-TV movie Deception: A Mother’s Secret, where she played a character named Liz, and later was cast in a supporting part in the indie drama Eden, which was screened at 1996 Sundance Film Festival. Faris’ first major film role came shortly after college with her independent film, Lovers Lane in 1999, in which she played an ill-fated cheerleader. A B movie, it was released directly-to-video, going largely unnoticed commercially. Critical reception towards the feature was mostly negative, but for her part, Faris got her early acting reviews by writers; website efilmcritic.com’s Greg Muskewitz found her to be “the one center of interest” of the movie and stated she was “cute, all pouty-mouthed and naive, with the stupid cheerleading costume she never changes out of. And besides, she’s much more appealing than Jennifer Love Hewitt”.

 

She started dating actor Ben Indra shortly after they met on the set of the 1999 indie slasher Lovers Lane. They eventually married in June 2004, but Faris filed for divorce in April 2007 citing irreconcilable differences. As part of their divorce agreement, which was finalized in February 2008, she agreed to pay Indra $900,000 in addition to other property and acting royalties.

 

Faris met actor Chris Pratt in early 2007 at the table read in Los Angeles for the film Take Me Home Tonight. They started dating shortly after, became engaged in late 2008, and married on July 9, 2009 in a small ceremony in Bali, Indonesia. They have a son, Jack, who was born on August 25, 2012; he was nine weeks premature and spent a month in the NICU, and was then able to go home. The family lives in the Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles.
