Anna Faris wants to officiate at her own wedding

The 43-year-old actress is engaged to her partner Michael Barrett, and has said that she’s keen to officiate at her own wedding, because it means that she would get double the “attention” alongside being the bride.

Speaking on The Late Late Show with James Corden, she said: “Well, I could do it. I could. I need a lot of attention, James.”

But the Mom star – who has six-year-old son Jack with her ex-husband Chris Pratt – would also love for the talk show’s host, James Corden, to preside over the ceremony, proving that he can make her friends and family laugh, as well as bring “heartfelt sentiments”.

She added: “I would love it if you auditioned. If you came and read… Well, I want somebody who’s humorous but also brings, like, you know, heartfelt sentiments and doesn’t talk too much about themselves.”

But James isn’t too convinced on the idea, as he confessed: “Well, that’s a problem. That’s a problem. I really strike out on all three of those.”
Anna’s engagement to Michael was confirmed last month by her Mom co-star Allison Janney, who previously celebrated the impending nuptials of the couple

She said: “I know she’s been engaged for a long time. I kept it very quiet, I’ll have you know! So, I celebrated with them a long time ago.”

Anna was first seen with a ring on her finger in November last year, but had said just months previous that she had “struggled” with the idea of getting married again because of the divorce process.

The Scary Movie actress – who was also married to Ben Indra from 2004 to 2008 – said: “I believe in love and monogamy and I believe in the commitment with a relationship, but I do struggle, having been through it a couple of times now, with the idea of our legal system.”

And Anna also admitted that she wasn’t sure if she even believed in the institution of marriage anymore.

She said: “I am a romantic. I believe in a partnership, I believe in companionship. I just don’t know if I believe in a ceremony of a wedding.”

The actress explained that she would “need to figure out what the purpose is” before she married for a third time.

Elaborating on her concerns, Anna confessed: “Is it safety for your children? Is it convention? Is it so other people respect your relationship more?… For me, I’m just not quite sure where it fits.”
