Anna Faris admitted in her new biography, Unqualified, that she was jealous of her ex-husband Chris Pratt's relationship with Jennifer Lawrence.

Jennifer and Chris played love interests in the 2016 movie Passengers, and Anna's publicist warned her that the paparazzi would have a field day with the co-stars.

"'Anna, listen, there are going to be paparazzi all over them,'" Anna recalls her publicist telling her. "'There are going to be shots of them laughing together on their way to set. There are going to be stories circulating, and you have to brace yourself for this.'"

While Anna writes in the book that she "didn't think it would bother" her since Chris had filmed with beautiful women (like Aubrey Plaza and Bryce Dallas Howard) before, she admits that eventually, the tabloids did start to affect her. "The coverage, even though it was false rumors, was making me feel insecure," she writes.

Especially seeing as she knows all too well how sparks can fly on set. She fell for Chris while filming 2011's Take Me Home Tonight, and in her memoir, details how she lusted after the actor, even though she was married to another man at the time.

"Sure, I get to proclaim that I didn't f-ck Chris before I left Ben, but what is there to celebrate in that? It didn't make me a hero," she writes. "After all, I wanted to. Desperately. And I had feelings for him, obviously, even if I wasn't honest with myself about what those were."

Jennifer, however, made her intentions clear to Chris' wife and even apologized for the rumors, according to Anna. "She's awesome," she said. "But of course, it's hurtful and also embarrassing when people are saying your husband is cheating on youeven if it's patently untrue."

Anna and Chris eventually announced their separation in August after eight years of marriage, and fans were quick to speculate that Jennifer was to blame for the breakup. However, the couple released a joint statement that did not allude to any infidelities.

We are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we're really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake, we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still love each other and will always cherish our time together.
