Anna Faris' dead bug love drew her to Chris Pratt

BANG Showbiz

ANNA Faris fell for Chris Pratt because of his dead bug collection.

The 'Scary Movie' actress has been married to the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' star since 2009 - after they met two years earlier on the set of 'Take Me Home' - and has admitted she first knew she had a connection with the actor when they bonded over their love of insect collecting.

Speaking on The Late Late Show with James Corden, she said: "I had a bug collection and ... when Chris and I first started dating he invited me over to his apartment and he had, also, a dead bug collection."

James then said: "Wow. What are the chances?" to which Anna replied, "That's how I felt! So much so that I started to cry. I was like, I've met the man of my dreams. We both have dead bug collections. 'Make out' was a gentle way to put it."

Meanwhile, Chris - who has two-year-old son Jack with the 38-year-old actress - couldn't help but gush about his wife recently, admitting it was "destiny" for them to be husband and wife.

Asked what drew them together, he said: "Anna and I are meant to be together.

"Our relationship has made me believe in divine intervention and destiny, just as much as my crazy career and the way I fell into this life."
