Chris Pratt is hosting Saturday Night Live’s 2014 premiere tonight and is sure to make audiences laugh with his natural wit. At home, he has someone to share his humor with since he is married to the always funny Anna Faris.
As their careers continue to grow, with Pratt’s newest movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, out now, and Faris’ sitcom, Mom, renewed for a second second, let’s celebrate their love story.
Here’s what you need to know about the lovable pair.
1. They Met on Set

The couple met and fell in love on the set of Take Me Home Tonight and married in 2009.
At the film’s premiere, Pratt told On the Red Carpet, “So this is a pretty spectacular moment for us, to be able to come to this movie that we met on and fell in love making, so it’s kinda neat.”
He then felt the need to clarify, saying, “”Fell in love, comma, making…I don’t even know if it’s appropriate to put a comma there. We didn’t fall into love-making.
2. They Both Collect Bugs
The couple didn’t realize they both had penchants for collecting bugs until Faris went to visit her new man’s apartment early on in their relationship.
In the interview above with Chelsea Handler, she said:
My husband and I, we collect bugs and skeletons…When Chris and I were first dating, he took me back to his apartment and he had a dead bug collection. And I had been collecting dead bugs for years, of course…And I started to cry.
3. Their Son Restored Chris’ Faith
The couple’s only son, Jack, was born nine weeks premature in August of 2012.
As a result, he spent a month in intensive care.
In an interview with People, the new dad revealed what a life-changing experience it was:
It restored my faith in God, not that it needed to be restored, but it really redefined it. The baby was so beautiful to us, and I look back at the photos of him and it must have been jarring for other people to come in and see him, but to us he was so beautiful and perfect.
On the Ellen Show, shown above, Pratt talked about how fulfilling it is to raise his little one.
He also showed a video of the couple pranking their son by making him taste his first lemon.

4. Chris Thinks Anna Looks Sexiest in BBQ Sauce
When People asked him what his wife’s sexiest look is, he answered, “Maybe, like, a little barbecue sauce on her face. I think that’s probably about the sexiest.”
He continued, “I like when she does her smoky eye. You know, we get really lucky because she has professional makeup artists do her, so I don’t think she’s ever not looked sexy. Then again, I like her with no makeup on too.”
5. Anna Said Chris’ Buff Body is ‘Super Sexy’
To transform his body for his role of Peter Quill/Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy, he dropped 60 pounds in six months.
In July of 2013, he posted the picture above on Instagram with the caption, “Six months no beer. #GOTG Kinda douchey to post this but my brother made me.”
Of course, people tend to ask his wife how she feels about his new body.
In an interview with Pop Sugar, she said, “It is super sexy, but he’s also hungry.”
She continued, “I would love him anyway…I do like a little more meat sometimes, makes me feel like a woman in a sense.”
