Many people remember their wedding day as one of the happiest of their lives. Tying the knot with your loved one is undoubtedly a dream for many. But what do people have to say about the problems of marriage and unwanted divorce?
Anna Faris recently called herself "a divorce veteran" on Chelsea Handler's 'Dear Chelsea' podcast as she opened up about ending her first two marriages, first Ben Indra (2004 to 2008), and then Chris Pratt (2009 to 2018). "It hit hard the first time. I turned into somebody that I didn't recognize. I was always the kind of person that had their fridge filled. And I hosted a lot of dinners. That was back when I had friends."
But after her split from Indra she said, "I found myself in this apartment with just beer and mustard in the fridge," she said. "I was going out all the time. I had no one to text or call and say, 'Hey, can I do this?' essentially." She added that it was also an "incredibly liberating" time, stating that she "reverted" back to her 17-year-old self. "I went to a bar, I was like, 'Look how dangerous I am.'" However, the insecurities had still seeped in and Faris said, "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."
In Hollywood, there are many celebrities who for years seemed to have a the perfect relationship, yet somehow ended up getting divorced. The online edition of Marie Claire gathered several phrases from some of these celebrities on what they had to say about the end of their relationships.
