Anna Faris isn’t spending her nights curled on the couch with a pint of ice cream and pining over her ex-hubby Chris Pratt. She’s getting back out on the dating scene. The “House Bunny” star announced the dissolution of her eight-year marriage to “Jurassic World” hunk Chris Pratt on Instagram with a personal post that was both hopeful and melancholy.

The 40-year-old actress has been spotted out and about with 47-year-old cinematographer, Michael Barrett after meeting the acclaimed director on the set of their new movie “Overboard.” The two were photographed sharing a beer together at a carnival in LA and sitting down for numerous romantic dinners everywhere from Malibu to the Pacific Palisades.
A source close to the “Mom” actress told People magazine that “Anna has been hanging out with Michael for weeks. They were hanging out occasionally in September, but started seeing each other more frequently recently.”
“They were laughing at the table,” added the source. “She looked very happy and had a smile on her face when she was leaving.”
Both Faris and Pratt seem to be in healthy, peaceful place regarding their in-process divorce with both jumping at every public opportunity to praise the other. When asked about Faris’ appearance at the 2017 Emmys, Pratt told TMZ: “I know she did great. Anna did an amazing job, man. She rules. Her and Allison [Janney] they both looked great.”
Faris echoed Pratt’s praise in a statement to People: “We’ll always have each other and be incredible friends. There is still so much laughter in our lives together, and he is so proud of me, still. We watched each other grew, and he still cracks me up all the time.”
If these two mega-famous celebs can keep it together after the end of their marriage, maybe there’s still hope for us to get a text back.
