Anna Faris

Though born in Maryland in 1976, Anna Faris grew up in Washington near Seattle. She began acting while still in the single digits, participating in the Seattle Repertory Theater. As a college student, Anna majored in English Literature at the University of Washington.

Anna’s comic turn in the 2000 spoof “Scary Movie” established the normally reserved blonde as a rising comic performer. “Scary Movie 2,” “The Hot Chick,” “Winter Break,” her over the top turn as the movie star in “Lost in Translation,” and “Scary Movie 3” all showcased Anna’s ability for comedy. Still, Anna has also chaptered her career with more serious fare. “Brokeback Mountain” and a horror films like “May” and “Lovers Lane” suggest that Anna may not always be content with hamming it up.

The comedies continued to dominate Anna’s filmography in the second half of the 2000s, however, as she appeared in “Waiting,” “Just Friends” and “My Super Ex-Girlfriend.” Anna married her longtime boyfriend Ben Indra in 2004 and filed for divorce in 2007. That same year, Anna began production on “The House Bunny,” in which she plays the lead. At least for the next few years, Anna will be continuing to forge the comedic path that made her famous and got her to where she is today, but it’s only a matter of time before she embraces the challenge of donning riskier roles.

Anna Says

On her ideal life:
“I love my job but, at the end of the day, I want to come home and watch a movie and drink a bottle of wine with my husband.”

On her passion projects:
“I do silly, fun projects like “Brokeback Mountain” so I can do heavier projects like “Scary Movie 4”.”
