“House Bunny” star Anna Faris doesn’t believe the cheating rumors about her husband, “Jurassic World” actor Chris Pratt, but that doesn’t mean they don’t hurt. It alarmed her even more when she heard Pratt had a tryst with award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, she told Us Weekly at the TCA Stars Party Monday.
“[That] stung a little bit harder than I thought it would,” Faris admitted about Lawrence, 24, who is co-starring with Pratt, 36, on the sci-fi thriller “Passengers.” “I thought, ‘Maybe there is a kernel of truth to that.’”
But Pratt was just as shocked about the infidelity allegations. “For us, it was like, ‘What the heck,” Faris, 38, said. “This has been blindsiding to us. We have an incredible relationship. It has been weirdly stinging.” Ultimately, Faris trusts Pratt, the father of their 3-year-old son, Jack. “I am very lucky that I am with a man [who] values family,” she said.
Even though she might have been shaken by rumors that Pratt cheated with Lawrence, Faris previously joked about her husband having an affair with a different co-star: Blue, a raptor Pratt’s character, Owen, trained in “Jurassic World.”
@prattprattpratt- honey, what if I'm the littlest jealous of Blue? I mean, she's hot, smart, and you clearly adore her-thoughts?

Pratt issued an equally cheeky response:

Jests aside, Pratt thinks he and Faris are meant for each other. “Our relationship has made me believe in divine intervention and destiny, just as much as my crazy career and the way I fell into this life,” he gushed about his wife during a Reddit AMA in April.
Both stars were raised in Washington state, which explains their love for the Seattle Seahawks football team. “She and I grew up 20 minutes away from each other but never met until we met in [Los Angeles],” he added.
