Anna Faris opened up about why she finally decided to get breast implants and said she still can’t believe she did it, because she was “a staunch feminist.”
“I was always a negative-A cup, so when I was 30, I was getting a divorce [she was married to Ben Indra for four years], I had just finished “House Bunny,” and I’d sold another movie, all of these new things were happening to me, so I got my breasts done,” the 41-year-old actress explained in an interview published Tuesday from her May 2018 cover story in Women’s Health magazine.
“It was f-cking awesome,” she added. “I never, ever thought I’d do something like that. I always thought plastic surgery was caving in to ‘the man,’ you know? But it came down to a really simple thing: I wanted to fill out a bikini.”
“What would that feel like,” she continued. “I’m still floored that I did it, because I am a staunch feminist. I kept thinking, ‘Am I betraying my own gender by doing this?’ I wish that we were more supportive of each other. I think that people should be able to do whatever they want, whether it’s getting braces, bleaching their hair, getting extensions, getting a boob job, getting vaginal surgery, or getting a nose job.”
Faris, who announced last fall that she and her second husband Chris Pratt were separating, also shared how the two are learning to deal with their new relationship.
“What Chris and I try to do is to communicate openly,” the actress explained. “We reiterate that there aren’t rules to this. We have a lot of love and friendship, and our big goal is to protect Jack [their child]. I cherish my family, my close friends, my child–that makes the rest of it worth it.”
