Chris Pratt Told Anna Faris Before Proposing To Katherine Schwarzenegger

Chris Pratt, Anna Faris - Mom

Chris Pratt is an old-fashioned guy. When it came to the preparation process for his recent engagement to his fiancée, author Katherine Schwarzenegger, the Guardians of the Galaxy actor wanted to cover all of his bases first. In addition to asking Katherine's father, Arnold Schwarzenegger, for his blessing before he got down on one knee to propose the big question, Pratt also paid a visit to his ex-wife. He wanted to make sure Anna Faris was also okay with the blockbuster actor introducing a new woman into his life so quickly after they signed their divorce papers. Here's what Anna Faris said about the whole arrangement during a recent podcast appearance.

How do we make sure that everybody that we love feels safe, and that we also respect the love that we had for each other, and have for each other? So, he was so sweet, as he always is. He called me, and he was like, ‘So, I’m going to ask Katherine to marry me. I just want to give you a heads-up.’ And I was like, ‘That’s awesome!’

The personal topic was broached during Anna Faris' guest appearance on the advice podcast, Divorce Sucks! With Laura Wasser. Faris is no stranger to podcasts herself. She hosts her own successful advice podcast, Unqualified with Anna Faris, and she's not afraid to talk about her romantic fumbles and the messy details that can often arise during relationships. Famous ones and otherwise.

But it was during this recent guest spot that Anna Faris opened up a little more about her life after her high-profile divorce, and how she received notice about the engagement before it became a big news update worldwide. While some people might be dismayed by their long-term partner opting to marry another woman so quickly after their relationship fizzled, Faris claims she was completely supportive of the decision.

As Anna Faris notes in this episode, it's always tough to figure out the next step forward after you get divorced. There are no easy answers, and you often have to let things take their course. Everyone adjusts at their own pace, and some people are quicker to jump back into the saddle than others. When it comes to Chris Pratt, he found a new love rather quickly. While some ex-wives might possibly have bitter feelings about such a quick rebound, Faris claims she supports it open-heartedly.

This podcast appearance was not the first time Anna Faris has publicly voiced support for her ex-husband's quick turn-around proposal. Only a day or two after the news made waves, social media users spotted a supportive comment from Faris on Chris Pratt's Instagram announcement, saying she was "so happy for you both" and congratulating the couple on their newfound celebrity engagement.
