Anna Faris Marriage Weddings

Anna Faris explains why she eloped and didn’t have anyone at her wedding


In July, we found out that Anna Faris and Michael Barrett had secretly married by eloping at courthouse in Washington. At the time, we didn’t know much else, except the ceremony took place on San Juan Island and that she sprung the news on her family only shortly before she told her podcast listeners. Over the weekend, the couple was making their way through LAX when some paps asked why they’d decided to elope. Anna said since they’re a bit on in years, they didn’t feel they needed “the whole thing.”

Anna Faris is opening up about her recent elopement with husband Michael Barrett.

The “House Bunny” star, 44, was spotted at LAX airport over the weekend, and told paps that she and Barrett, 51, wed at a private courthouse ceremony on their own because “with a little bit of age, you don’t need the whole thing.”

When asked if anyone else attended the couple’s nuptials, Faris responded, “It was just us.” She also confirmed it was her decision to elope.

I’ll say up front, as I have many times before, I always think a wedding should be whatever the bride and groom want. If a pair of thrice-married septuagenarians want to blow the doors off with a cathedral length train and 15 attendants, that’s their day. I have opinions on a couple making outrageous demands on the bridal party or guests/family, but not how they want to celebrate. So my speculation about why Anna and Michael eloped is just speculation, I’m sure they did exactly what they wanted for their wedding and I’m all for it. Age may have been a factor. I know my wedding would’ve been very different if I’d married 10 years earlier than I did. But it was also Anna’s third marriage and Michael’s second. I know if I ever do it again, it would be vastly different because I already have the experience. When Anna’s ex, Chris Pratt, married Katherine Schwarzenegger, it was her first wedding. So I’m sure she wanted a big wedding and he wanted her to have it. Plus, it sounds like Anna has been doing a lot of introspection about her former relationships, so maybe she wanted all their focus to be on their vows without any of the distractions a big wedding can have. Honestly, not worrying about the guestlist is worth the elopement alone.

And, as CB pointed out, during the pandemic, a small, intimate ceremony is a really smart choice.

Anna Faris wants to host her own daytime talk show

Anna Faris stepped down from her very popular series, Mom, in 2020. Although a strong ensemble, Anna was still mainly the series lead, if not co-lead with Allison Janney. It was a bold move. At the time she cited other opportunities. Those opportunities turned out to be her podcast, Unqualified with Anna Faris. I know several of you really like the podcast and it is quite popular (I’ve only listened to snippets so far). According to IMDb, Anna has done some voicework for the animated series Housebroken and is signed to do a film next year, but not much else. So, what are Anna’s career plans? According to OK!, Anna is eyeing a talk show spot. And all her friends are encouraging her to go for it.

Now that her Unqualified podcast is a certified hit, a source says Anna Faris would love to have her own TV chatfest.

Faris, who launched her weekly advice podcast in 2015, “is being very discreet about her ambitions, but she’s got big dreams and is mulling a move to host a daytime talk show,” dishes the source.

While the actress, 44, has been quietly fielding offers from producers behind the scenes, “Anna isn’t quite ready to make the leap just yet, because she feels she’s still developing her interview skills,” shares the source.

But the perky Mom alum is finding the idea increasingly tempting. “Everyone is telling Anna she has just as much talent and charisma as Drew Barrymore or Kelly Clarkson,” the source adds.

“And with The Ellen DeGeneres Show ending next year, there’s not going to be a better moment for her to throw her hat in the ring. She should just go for it.”

[From OK!]

As I said, I haven’t really heard the podcast so I can’t weigh in fully on if I think this is a good idea. But from the reporting I’ve done on her discussions from it, it sounds like Anna’s guests trust her and that is huge when interviewing folks. I’ve always found her charismatic. If she can dial back her tendency to dip into a chaotic energy for laughs, I think she’d pull off a playful vibe. So in that sense, I guess why not? My only hesitation is that I don’t see much variation between Anna, Drew and Kelly. I think some of those are succeeding better than others, but they all generally have that cute, kinetic, not-afraid-to-appear-daffy- blonde thing to them. I’d like to know what Anna will bring to the table that’s different.

In other news, I’m sure you’ve all heard by now that Anna eloped with Michael Barrett. A couple of weeks ago she was talking to Gail Simmons on her podcast and had to correct herself when she called Michael her fiancé to calling him her husband. All she said was they married on the San Juan Islands in Washington and that the wedding was “awesome.” Congratulations Anna and Michael.
