Why Anna Faris, Chris Pratt are the best married couple in Hollywood
Anna Faris and Chris Pratt are adorable any given day, but their sixth anniversary tweets prove sweet enough to cause a major toothache.
The too-cute-for-words couple, who tied the knot back in 2009, celebrated the special date with (among other things, we're sure) heartfelt social media messages to each other.
Said Anna, "I would like to bore all my sweet followers with a happy anniversary message to my love. Here goes: happy anniversary baby!"
Pratt responded swiftly and sweetly with a love note of his own. "I love you darling!! I'm the luckiest man in the world."
And, here's the thing. In a world where our faith in celebrity relationships is fragile at best, thanks to Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner's recent split, Faris and Pratt are a breath of fresh air.
They are, arguably, the best married couple in Hollywood right now. Why?
They keep each other (and the rest of the world) laughing
For starters, they're, well, real. Not only do they not take themselves too seriously as individuals, but they don't take themselves too seriously as a couple either. They know how to have fun — to laugh and to make light of the myriad funny and not-so-funny moments a marriage is inevitably full of.
They're kind of a couple of goofballs like the rest of us, which is part of what makes them so relatable. We need more of that! We mere mortals like to look at celebrity couples and, instead of seeing an unattainable facade of perfection, see two seemingly normal people who fell in love and are in fact living happily ever after.
We need more couples like Faris and Pratt who aren't afraid to show the world how silly they are or how weird their love is.
Like, for example, when Faris revealed to James Corden the moment she knew Pratt was the one. "I had a dead bug collection... humanely harvested. When Chris and I first started dating, he invited me over to his apartment and he had, also, a dead bug collection," she said, adding, "I started to cry."
They champion each other
Since they got hitched in Bali six years ago, the couple has continued to appreciate and embrace each other's quirks. And, what's more, they support each other. Not in a way that feels disingenuous, like many celebrity love matches. But in a way that is nearly palpable.
It's obvious they are each other's biggest cheerleaders. They're best friends. Which, of course, makes us all want to be best friends with them (can we, please? Chris, Anna — give us a call).
They just can't stop gushing
Instead of dodging the question when asked about their marriage, Faris and Pratt steal every possible opportunity to sing each other's praises. Yes, they love each other! And, no, they aren't afraid to say so! In fact, they've even turned their overt affection into a bit of an inside joke.
And, if all of the above wasn't enough to convince you fairy tales do come true in the land of syndicated Cinderellas, check out Pratt's response to a Reddit user who asked what drew him to Faris.
"Anna and I are meant to be together," he said. "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. She and I grew up 20 minutes away from each other but never met until we met in LA. We both got our start in horror spoofs. We both did an animated movie for Phil Lord and Chris Miller. We both made our careers playing guileless nitwits for laughs. We both have parents that have suffered with MS. The similarities go on and on. Anna is a great wife. Very patient and understanding. Very supportive. So kind and genuine always. And she gave me a wonderful son and family of in-laws that I truly love."
See? Kismet. Come on, you can say it with us — awwwww!
