Brace yourselves for this news, because it is the most bittersweet: Anna Faris reportedly has a new man in her life. We know; it’s hard to be happy for her because that man is not Chris Pratt and we are by no means over their breakup. But fam, this is what she wants, so we need to put back together the pieces of our broken hearts and deal with this.
The gentleman in question is reportedly cinematographer Michael Barrett, who worked with Faris on her upcoming film Overboard. Separate eyewitnesses say the pair had dates at Modo Mio, an upscale Italian joint in Los Angeles, twice in two days.
On their first date, an onlooker said they sat together on the patio and split a bottle of red wine. The witness told E! News that the get-together looked “like a date,” and that “[t]hey were laughing at the table. She looked very happy and had a smile on her face when she was leaving.” They reportedly left the restaurant together after Barrett picked up the tab.
The following day, they reportedly went back to Modo Mio, where they again split a bottle of wine, but this time over dinner. An onlooker said they shared “several dishes of various pasta and salad,” before again leaving together with their leftovers.
“It was definitely a dinner date,” the witness said. “It seemed romantic in the way they were looking at one another and how they were laughing at the table… No one in the restaurant realized it was her, but she definitely looked to be on a date.”
It’s been over a month since the first time Faris and Barrett were spotted together. On Sept.10, they attended a carnival together and photographers managed to catch them despite their attempts to hide under baseball caps.
Faris hasn’t publicly commented on the relationship rumors, though, so until that happens, we’re going to be over here secretly continuing to ‘ship her and Pratt.
