Anna Faris Talks Perfect Job

Anna Faris perfect job remark, brings to light the singularity of her hit comedy show “Mom.” In a recent interview Anna Faris talked about landing the perfect job with her new television series “Mom” on CBS. Faris who gave birth to son Jack in 2012 said that she was trilled when the creators Chuck Lorre, Eddie Gorodetsky and Gemma Baker contacted her for the sitcom because she loved the character that she would be playing and was happy to work in Los Angeles and be close to her baby and husband Chris Pratt. But the real reason she called her role on “Mom” the perfect job is because the writers touch on issues like teen pregnancy, cancer, alcoholism and single parenting.

This week Anna Faris sat down for a very interesting interview with Deadline. The Lost in Translation actress tackled various aspects of her career with the publication.

Anna Faris said that she landed the perfect job on “Mom,” she talked about her passion for writing and producing and even spilled the beans of her upcoming film Vacation Friends with husband Chris Pratt.

The Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs actress stated that the script for “Mom” landed on her desk just months after having her child Jack in 2012 and she loved the concept and so did hubby Chris Pratt:

“It was the perfect job at the perfect time. After I had my baby, I reprioritized my life in general. I really wanted to play characters that gave me a different kind of fulfillment. That is a difficult thing to find, especially as an actress. There were a few different things that I was circling around and then this script literally landed on my doorstep without any information attached to it.”

The My Super Ex-Girlfriend star went on to explain that she was captivated with the main character Christy Plunkett, a former alcoholic trying to make amends with her horrible mother Bonnie Plunkett played by Allison Janney who is also a recovering alcoholic and a cougar.

The “Nobody Does It Better” singer revealed that she was also moved by the fact that the creators of the comedy incorporated serious topics in the script like they used to do in the 1980s and 1990s.

She explained:

“It’s so well written, that it makes your job easier and you have a gut sort-of reaction, you know instantly how you’re going to say each line Anna Faris Emmy Interview and that’s how I felt with Christy. I felt like she was familiar, complicated and messy and starting over in her life. I loved that it was a show about a woman reconnecting with her mother and how complicated that relationship is, as opposed to trying to get a guy to sort of fall for me. Also, I loved the idea of being able to stay in LA and be with my baby and to do a multicam show.”

During the chit chat, Faris revealed that she rarely waits for the phone to ring, she prefers work with writers and come up with a good script.

She also talked about working with Pratt in the near future.
