This is why Anna Faris is “so scared” to have her book released next month
Anna Faris isn’t just one of the funniest ladies on TV — she also runs her own podcast called Anna Faris is Unqualified, and she’s a first-time author. Faris’ book is set to be released into the world next month, but you guys, she’s feeling very scared about it, and we totally understand the feeling.
The book, also titled Anna Faris is Unqualified, was written before the public announcement of her divorce from Chris Pratt back in August, and it has since gained a lot of attention because of it. Which is good for the book, but not great for…well…feelings — especially since Pratt wrote the forward in the book.
But Faris is nervous for her book to be released for other reasons as well, as she discussed in the latest episode of her podcast, which you should definitely check out if you haven’t already. Have we mentioned that she’s hilarious?
“I’m excited and when I first got the book deal, I thought, ‘What a great adventure this is going to be,’ and now that it’s getting closer, I feel nervous in a sense that I’ve always been able to hide behind characters. And now it’s like, this is me. It feels a little scary, she said, during the latest episode of Anna Faris Is Unqualified.
Just like the podcast, the totally relatable book is a mix of anecdotes and advice.
It touches on her childhood, when she was “a really quiet kid with headgear” who suddenly became “an actress in L.A. and sort of how I haven’t felt comfortable in my own skin, and learning to do that.”
She added, "Dear listeners: I would love it so much if you picked up my book. But please know, I am so scared. I feel like leaving the country for a little while. I’m breaking into a sweat.
Anna Faris is Unqualified is scheduled to be released on October 24th, and is available for pre-order now.
