Anna Faris Reveals How She Dealt with Jealousy of Chris Pratt's Romance ... with Chris Evans
"People regularly ask me what it feels like to see the person you love kiss somebody else on-screen. And most of the time, it's really not a big deal ... But I've had my moments. Like when Chris worked with some of the most beautiful and charming women in the world," Faris writes, referring to J.Law, in a candid, new memoir Unqualified, published earlier this week.
While the gossip was all lies, Faris writes, her jealousy was real. So how did she handle it?
"I have a strategy to deal with jealousy," Faris says, describing a policy she has followed since the pair's early days together. "If I feel twinges of it, whether it was toward Chris's smokin' hot costars, or actors whose careers are more successful than mine, I try hard to befriend them and compliment and love them. Not in a fake, frenemy way, but for real. Because 95 percent of the time it's hard to have jealous or catty feelings toward someone you really like."

Her plan backfired when Pratt took a page out of her book, though. Pratt became jealous when Faris filmed What's Your Number? with Chris Evans, so he decided to befriend Faris's hot co-star. Turns out, Faris wanted her then-husband to experience just a little bit of jealousy. "They were so enamored of each other that I still ended up being the jealous one clamoring for attention. Hey, guys! Look at me!"
It's not fool proof, but Faris's strategy is one we can definitely get behind.
