Jennifer Lawrence has revealed the truth about her relationship with Passengers co-star, Chris Pratt.
Following Pratt's split with Anna Faris, persistent rumours that he had an affair ensued, alleging that Jennifer, was a factor in the couple's decision to divorce.
And now, Jennifer, 27, is setting the record straight, opening up during an interview with KIIS FM. The Red Sparrow actress affirmed, “I never had an affair with Chris Pratt on Passengers.
"That’s a good one… I mean they got a divorce like two years later and everybody was like Jennifer Lawrence! And I was like what the… what I’m in Montreal two years later.”
Anna has previously addressed the rumours in her memoir, Untitled. Read the candid excerpt below:
“Even before they met in person, my publicist, out of the blue, pulled me aside and said, ‘Anna, listen, there are going to be paparazzi all over them,” the 41-year-old wrote. ‘There are going to be shots of them laughing together on their way to set. There are going to be stories circulating, and you have to brace yourself for this.’ I didn’t think it would bother me. I’ve been in this business a while now and I had seen Chris star alongside other beautiful women, like Aubrey Plaza and Bryce Dallas Howard.”
“I’d always taken pride in our relationship, and the coverage, even though it was just false rumors, was making me feel insecure,” Anna continued. “Jennifer and I really are friendly, and she was apologetic even though she didn’t need to be, because she hadn’t done anything wrong. She’s awesome, but of course it’s hurtful and also embarrassing when people are saying your husband is cheating on you, even if it’s patently untrue. You still feel, and look, like a fool.”
Faris and Pratt officially filed for divorce in December 2016, they share custody of their five-year-old son, Jack. Per the documents, the couple listed their official separation date as July 13, which was a month before they announced their separation. Pratt and Faris announced the news in August in a Facebook post, shocking many fans. "Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed," Pratt wrote.
He continued: “Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another.”
