Anna Kay Faris is an American comic actress born November 29, 1976. She might be best known for playing the lead in the ''Film/ScaryMovie'' films. A natural blonde, she had to [[DyeingForYourArt dye her hair black]] for the role to give her a more [[Franchise/{{Scream}} Neve Campbell]] look.

Mostly a face actress in comedies like ''Film/TheHouseBunny'', ''Film/JustFriends'' and ''Film/TheDictator'' but has recently done a couple of voice acting gigs - Sam Sparks in ''WesternAnimation/CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs'' and Jeanette in ''[[Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks Alvin And The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel]]'' and ''Chipwrecked''.

Won the "[[TheStoner Stoner of the Year]]" award at ''High Times'' magazine's Stony Awards, in Los Angeles, on October 13, 2007, for her role in ''Film/SmileyFace''.

She currently stars in the CBS sitcom ''Series/{{Mom}}'' and hosts a podcast called ''Anna Faris Is Unqualified''.

She was married to Creator/ChrisPratt before they mutually decided to file for separation. Also her first name is actually pronounced [[ItIsPronouncedTroPAY "Onna"]].

!!This actress provides examples of:
* AmusingInjuries: Many of her roles.
* BracesOfOrthodonticOverkill: She's told the story of being stuck in headgear for most of her adolscence, which motivated her to be funny since traditional [[KidsAreCruel popularity wasn't an option]].
* ChubbyChaser: She's been described as a feeder and has admitted that she liked it when her former husband Chris Pratt is chubby.
* CuteClumsyGirl
* DumbBlonde / BrainlessBeauty / TheDitz: Certainly not an airhead in real life, but easily two-thirds of her roles have her playing one of these.
** She plays a sort of parody of her characters in ''Film/LostInTranslation''.
** Subverted in ''Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs'', where her character Sam actually is very smart but pretends to be airheaded because peers would tease her.
* DyeingForYourArt
** In ''Film/ScaryMovie'', Anna dyed her naturally blonde hair black so that she would more closely resemble Neve Campbell.
** In ''Film/TheDictator'', she dyed her hair brunette and cut it short to give her character a more tough appearance. Plus, the armpit hair her character sports in the movie is real.
* ItIsPronouncedTroPAY: Prefers her name be pronounced 'Ah-na'.
* MsFanservice: In some of her roles, but especially ''Film/TheHouseBunny'', where she plays a Playboy Bunny and even has a nude scene from behind, showing off her fit body and her great ass.
* PlayingAgainstType: As Polly in ''Film/{{May}}'', a rare horror role.
* RomanceOnTheSet: Was married to Ben Indra, who she met on the set of ''Film/LoversLane''.
** She met her second husband Chris Pratt on the set of ''TakeMeHomeTonight'' in 2007. They married in 2009, which, oddly enough, was 2 years before the movie's actual release in 2011 (due to being put on TheShelfOfMovieLanguishment).
* SheReallyCanAct: Tends to get this reaction whenever she appears in a non-slapstick film, particularly her cameo in ''Film/BrokebackMountain'' and her recurring role as herself in ''Film/{{Entourage}}''.
* TypeCasting: Largely voluntary though, and she ''has'' played a few smart characters like the aforementioned Sam Sparks.
