Allison Janney confirms ‘Mom’ co-star Anna Faris is engaged


Monty Brinton/CBS(LOS ANGELES) — Anna Faris and Michael Barrett are officially engaged, Faris’ Mom co-star Allison Janney tells Us Weekly.

“I know she’s been engaged for a long time,” Janney, 60, told the entertainment magazine at the Los Angeles premiere of her new film Troop Zero, opening nationwide on Friday.

“I kept it very quiet, I’ll have you know!  So, I celebrated with them a long time ago,” she adds.

“I didn’t know he was going to propose, but I saw the ring one day,” the Bombshell actress continued.  “I went into her room to work on lines [for the show], and then I was like, ‘What is that ring on your finger?’…I think she was waiting for everyone to notice.  ‘Oh, that’s it,’ and then…yeah, it was fun.”

Rumors of Faris’ engagement began back in November, when she was spotted wearing “what appeared to be a massive engagement ring” while strolling around L.A. with Barret, according to Us.

Faris reportedly seemed to confirm the rumors days later when a photographer congratulated her and she responded, “Thank you!”

Faris, 43, was previously married to her Lovers Lane costar Ben Indra from 2004-2008 and Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt from 2009-2018.  She and Pratt share a-seven-year-old son. Pratt has since moved on with Katherine Schwarzenegger, whom he married in June 2019.
