Anna Faris shares how divorces affect how she step-parents: 'I wanted to be this wild, new reckless person in their lives'

Anna Faris is a work in progress.

The actor, 45, recently opened up in an interview with Chelsea Handler on Handler's podcast, Dear Chelsea, about her life post-divorce and how she’s "still learning" how to accept love in her life.

"Being a stepmom… I'm still learning. I really am,” she explained of co-parenting her new husband Michael Barrett's two children, which he has from a previous relationship. “I felt at first I wanted to be kinda like this wild, new, reckless person in their lives, because I was also going through a divorce."

Faris married cinematographer Barrett in 2021, after meeting him on the film Overboard.
