Anna Faris has never been one to shy away from tough topics, and she’s not starting now.

The 45-year-old Scary Movie actress opened up on Chelsea Handler‘s podcast Dear Chelsea about her post-divorce life, and how she’s still learning how to be a stepmother. Listen above.

“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 told Handler of co-parenting with her husband Michael Barrett, who has two children from a previous relationship.

Faris and Barrett wed in 2021 after four years together. Prior to her marriage with Barrett, Faris was married to actor Chris Pratt, with whom she shares a nine-year-old son, Jack. Faris and Pratt divorced in October 2018, and before Pratt, Faris was married to actor Ben Indra until 2008.

“It hit hard the first time,” Faris explained on the podcast of her first divorce, from Indra.

“I turned into somebody I didn’t recognise. Like, I was always the kinda person that had my fridge filled – and I hosted a lot of dinners. That was back when I had friends,” she laughed.

“But then I found myself in this apartment with just beer and mustard in the fridge, and I was going out all the time,” Faris said of her first post-divorce period.

“I had no one to text or call to say, ‘Hey, can I do this?’ It was incredibly liberating, and I reverted back to, like, when I was 17 years old.”

Faris opened up about feeling insecure from when she was younger, and how it made her slow to accept love – but after her second divorce, Faris said accepting love has “been easier.”

“I still kinda struggle with it,” Faris said of accepting love.

“I was terrified that I wasn’t a good lover, especially when I was younger. I was so self-conscious of my body. I didn’t want anybody to see it, but I would dance on the edges of it. I wanted to be desired desperately.”

She said she “got fake boobs and bleached [her] hair” as a “strategy” to be desired, and admitted while she can easily accept compliments about her work, she struggles to accept praise surrounding her looks.

“In Hollywood, if you’re at a thing and everybody looks beautiful and someone is like ‘I think you look so beautiful,’ I can’t absorb that very well,” she said. “It’s a little too much.”

Travis Barker Receives Flowers From Kris Jenner and Corey Gamble After Hospitalization

#Travis #Barker #Receives #Flowers #Kris #Jenner #Corey #Gamble #Hospitalization

Travis Barker is on the road to recovery. 

Less than a week after being admitted to the hospital for pancreatitis, it appears the Blink-182 drummer is back at home. Travis seemingly confirmed the news on July 4 while sharing an image to his Instagram Story of flowers he received from mother-in-law Kris Jenner and her boyfriend Corey Gamble.

“Dearest Travis,” a note attached to the flowers read, “Get well soon!!!! We love you.” Travis captioned the photo, which appeared to be taken at his residence in Calabasas, Calif., with a “thank you” to the couple.

On July 3, Travis’ wife Kourtney Kardashian hinted that he’d been released from the hospital by posting a photo from inside his vintage convertible. That same day, Travis shared a picture to his own Instagram Story, showing a basket filled with board games, including Battleship, Monopoly and Operation.

E! News confirmed on June 28 that Travis was brought by ambulance to a Los Angeles hospital. On July 2, Travis shared details on his health journey on social media.

Exclusive: Amber Heard seeks to throw out verdict in Johnny Depp defamation trial – TalkOfNews.com

Amber Heard seeks to throw out verdict in Johnny Depp defamation trial

#Amber #Heard #seeks #throw #verdict #Johnny #Depp #defamation #trial

Amber Heard’s lawyers have asked a judge to throw out the $10.35 million verdict against her in the defamation case filed by ex-husband Johnny Depp, arguing that the verdict was not supported by the evidence and that one of the jurors may not have been properly vetted by the court.

In post-trial motions filed Friday, Heard’s attorneys call the jury’s June 1 award of $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages to Depp “excessive” and “indefensible.”

They ask the judge to set aside the verdict and dismiss Depp’s lawsuit or order a new trial. Immediately after the verdict, the judge reduced the compensatory damages to $350,000 under a state cap.

Depp sued Heard for libel in Fairfax County Circuit Court over a December 2018 op-ed she wrote in The Washington Post describing herself as “a public figure representing domestic abuse.” Depp’s lawyers alleged he was defamed by the article even though it never mentioned him by name.

The six-week televised trial turned into a spectacle that offered a window into their dysfunctional marriage. Much of the testimony focused on Heard’s claims that she had been physically and sexually abused by Depp. Heard described more than a dozen alleged assaults, including a fight in Australia — where Depp was shooting a Pirates of the Caribbean sequel — in which Depp lost the tip of his middle finger and Heard said she was sexually assaulted with a liquor bottle.

In their post-trial motions, Heard’s legal team argued that to find that Heard had actual malice, Depp would have had to show that at the time Heard’s article was published, she did not believe she had been abused.

“Instead, the evidence overwhelmingly supported Ms. Heard believed she was the victim of abuse at the hands of Mr. Depp,” Heard’s lawyers say in their motion.

Heard’s lawyers also ask the judge to investigate “potential improper juror service,” alleging that one of the jurors who was chosen to serve on the jury was listed as being born in 1945 in documents given to the attorneys before the jury selection process, but is listed as being born in 1970 in publicly available information.

“This discrepancy raises the question whether Juror 15 actually received a summons for jury duty and was properly vetted by the Court to serve on the jury,” Heard’s lawyers said in their motion.

Depp’s attorneys did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The jury also awarded Heard $2 million in her counterclaim against Depp, finding that Heard was defamed by one of Depp’s lawyers, who accused her of creating a detailed hoax that included roughing up the couple’s apartment to look worse for police.

In some ways, the trial was a replay of a lawsuit Depp filed in the United Kingdom against a British tabloid after he was described as a “wife beater.” The judge in that case ruled in the newspaper’s favor in 2020 after finding that Heard was telling the truth in her descriptions of abuse.
