Anna Faris has reportedly moved on from her split with Chris Pratt and is in the early stages of dating cinematographer Michael Barrett.
According to TMZ.com, Anna and 47-year-old Michael first met on the set of the Overboard remake, and were seen on their first date at a seafood restaurant in Malibu, California, in September (17). Later that month, they were seen at a carnival with Anna and Chris‘ five-year-old son Jack.
The 40-year-old actress has also been spotted out with Michael twice this week at the same restaurant in Los Angeles’ Pacific Palisades area, the outlet reports.
Michael’s other cinematographer credits include the comedies Ted, About Last Night and Zookeeper.
Reports of Anna’s apparent new romance came just hours after she opened up to People magazine about her split from Jurassic World star Chris and fans’ reactions following the former couple’s August announcement of the end of their marriage.
“It’s understandable that people seemed so invested in our happiness together,” she explained. “All I can say about that is, it’s all true, that we truly adore each other, and we love each other, I think it still comes through.”
She also added that she believes their relationship as friends will continue to evolve as they co-parent Jack.
“We’ll always have each other and be incredible friends,” she said. “There is still so much laughter in our lives together, and he is so proud of me, still. We watched each other grow, and he still cracks me up all the time. And I think I crack him up – unless he’s a really good actor and great at faking laughter.”
Anna is preparing to release her memoir Unqualified, which features a foreword penned by Chris, later this month (Oct17).
