Like an old wine, the love between “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” star Chris Pratt and his wife gets sweeter with age.
Last Wednesday, the premiere event of the most-awaited Marvel film took place. There, Pratt walked the red carpet with his beautiful wife, Anna Faris, who has nothing but good words toward her husband.
“I’m in awe,” Faris told Entertainment Tonight after seeing the adoring crowd of fans.
“On the way here I was so much more nervous than Chris was… I felt like I’ve always known he’s a brilliant actor. And now I feel like the rest of the world is getting to see that. I’m so thrilled about this movie,” she continued.
Dressed in a velvety cream gown, the actress looked stunning while standing beside her famous spouse. The couple met in 2007 on the set of “Take Me Home Tonight” wherein Faris played a love interest of Pratt’s character.
The two got engaged in 2008 and married in Bali, Indonesia in July 2009. They have a 4-year-old son named Jack, who enjoys watching his parents on the big screen.
“He’s a huge movie fan and a Marvel fan and he gets it. He sits through movies. He loves the story. You know, we’re just mom and dad at home but on TV, we get to be heroes,” said the proud dad.
In the “Guardians of the Galaxy” sequel, Pratt reprises his role as Peter Quill/Star-Lord. He and his team of ex-con aliens — Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Baby Groot (Vin Diesel), and Rocket (Bradley Cooper) — embark another universe-saving adventure when a new nemesis emerges and threatens to destroy the whole cosmos.
Along the way, Star-Lord learns that his father is alive and his name is Ego (Kurt Russell), an ancient cosmic being who raised Mantis (Pom Klementieff).
“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” will hit theaters globally on May 5.
