Anna Faris          

Actress, Singer and Comedian Known For Her Roles in "Just Friends," "Scary Movie," "The House Bunny" & CBS' "Mom"

Anna Faris was born in Baltimore, Maryland, to Karen (Bathurst), a special ed teacher, and Jack Faris, a sociologist. Her ancestry includes English, German, Scottish, French, Dutch, and Welsh.

Anna started acting very young but not professionally. She loved watching plays and eventually produced her own with all the neighborhood children. She was always encouraged with the emphasis that she wasn't just "pretending" but rather being an unpaid producer, director, writer and actor.

Her first paid job was at the Seattle Repertory Theatre at age nine. She loved it and did other local plays and readings. After graduating from the University of Washington in English Literature, she decided to leave for London to work and write, but after filming (the less than wonderful) "Lovers Lane" and a short for the Seattle Film Festival, she decided to give Los Angeles a try. She signed with up with a wonderful management agency and before she could catch her breath, Keenen Ivory Wayans casted her in "Scary Movie."

Since then, Faris has played roles in "Lost in Translation," "The House Bunny," "Waiting...," "My Super Ex-Girlfriend," "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" and its sequel "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2," "Yogi Bear," "What's Your Number?," and "The Dictator."

Anna is married to actor Chris Pratt.
