Anna Faris On Chris Pratt, Jennifer Lawrence Prank War
Probably at least as much money as J Law made for "Winter's Bone," right?
That's why I don't really blame Anna Faris for wanting to get in on this PR dream come true.
Here's a hint: She didn't pick her husband.
The 40-year-old actress told ET,
I fully support Jennifer Lawrence. I am all for it. I adore her.
To which Chris responded,
I can't believe you're Team Jen. This sucks. I need some support, I thought you'd back me up.
This whole thing started with Chris consistently blocking Jen's face in his Instagram photos.
I have to admit, even as someone who hates fun and antics in general, this is a pretty great prank.
It's low-cost, low-risk and, most importantly, Chris fully dedicated himself to the joke and built up the intensity.
It started off subtle. Just a simple cropping issue here and there.
Slowly it got more and more absurd...
...and finally, it all culminated in the grand finale: the face-swap. A true American classic.
But then Jen, who's never been one to pass up a chance to be funny and relatable, retaliated with her own public, televised prank on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"
Jen told Kimmel,
It's always a bad sign when Chris seems sincere about something… Like, 'Would you care if I took some photos for my social media? I think it would be good for boosting the movie.' And I'm like, 'Of course, man.'
So to get her revenge on Chris for tricking her, Jen decided to vandalize a giant picture of her co-star's face on a bus.
According to Chris, this move by Jen means the war is not over.
And why would it be?
They've still got a few weeks of press left, after all, and no one has time to discuss the quality of their movie as long as there are pranks to be had!
