The former couple filed for divorce in December 2017, allegedly because they had different goals for their family life. Faris met Pratt in 2007 when working together on the set of "Take Me Home Tonight."
On March 22, 2021, the actress confessed on her podcast that her relationship with Pratt suffered because she failed to remove competitiveness in her marriages. She was a proud person who didn’t want to show vulnerability.

The star admitted that she failed to handle any hint of comparison or competitiveness in her past relationships. Faris said she hoped she’d since grown from those shortcomings.
Before the actress tied the knot with the “Guardians of the Galaxy” star, she was married to another actor, Ben Indra, from 2004 to 2008. In Faris’ 2017 book, “Unqualified,” she explained why her marriage to Indra ended.
She admitted that part of the reason they broke up was because of Pratt. The actress met Indra when she starred alongside him in 1999’s “Lovers Lane,” and soon enough, they were dating.

He proposed to her twice, and the second time was a charm. After their marriage failed, the “Scary Movie” actress explained how Indra’s harsh outlook on life was also one of the reasons why they divorced.
Faris admitted in her book that she ended up re-evaluating her past relationships and marriage to Indra. She realized she’d always linked discontent, cynicism, and anger with intelligence.
Being with Pratt is what made the “House Bunny” star re-examine things. Faris' former “Mom” co-star, Allison Janney, confirmed her engagement to Barrett while speaking to “Us Weekly” in January 2020.

The star explained that they were both probably introverted in a similar way, plus he had two children of his own. “HollywoodLife,” said Faris shared about her marriage one day before Barrett first sparked wedding speculations.
