Anna Faris's new memoir Unqualified continues to turn both pages and heads, as it doesn't seem to hold back on the juicy details. In addition to Faris's confession about an emotional affair with now-ex Chris Pratt during her first marriage, it appears Jennifer Lawrence made Faris extremely jealous -- which likely did not help her now-broken marriage.

  • In her book, Anna reveals her publicist told the actress to brace herself for cheating rumors when Chris and Jennifer filmed "Passengers."

    "Even before they met in person, my publicist, out of the blue, pulled me aside," Faris writes in Unqualified, as RadarOnline.com reports.

    "'Anna, listen, there are going to be paparazzi all over them,' she said. 'There are going to be shots of them laughing together on their way to set. There are going to be stories circulating, and you have to brace yourself for this.' I didn't think it would bother me. I've been in this business a while now and I had seen Chris star alongside other beautiful women, like Aubrey Plaza and Bryce Dallas Howard."

    Chris and Anna, who have a 5-year-old son named Jack, were married for eight years before calling it quits in August. Reports have surfaced Anna has moved on with film cinematographer Michael Barrett.

  • "I talked to Chris about how hurt I felt, even though I knew there were no truth to the stories ..." the mom writes in her book.

    "... And he didn't understand at first," she continues.

    "I didn't want to pay attention to the stories but I couldn't block them all out, either. I'd always taken pride in our relationship, and the coverage, even though it was just false rumors, was making me feel insecure. Eventually Chris came around and understood why it felt sh**y."

  • Anna admits Jennifer apologized to her about rumors that she and Chris were romantic, which made Faris feel embarrassed and looking "like a fool."

    "Jennifer and I really are friendly, and she was apologetic even though she didn't need to be, because she hadn't done anything wrong," Faris mentions in Unqualified. "She's awesome, but of course it's hurtful and also embarrassing when people are saying your husband is cheating on you -- even if it's patently untrue. You still feel, and look, like a fool."

    ".... It can be hard not to have a moment of self-doubt when my husband is acting with young women in big movies and I'm playing a role in Mom that, while I love it, is incredibly unsexy," the actress writes in another part of her book.

  • And, apparently, Anna wasn't the only one who had insecurities about someone cheating.

    "While my Chris had a break from filming Parks and Recreation, he came to set and did a small part," Faris references in her book while discussing her time filming What's Your Number? with Chris Evans. "He was never overt about it, but he would bring up my kissing scenes with Chris Evans casually. 'So, when do you have to do that love scene with Evans?' he'd ask. It was thinly veiled, but very sweet."

  • Given how things turned out for Anna and Chris, it's hard not to wonder if their insecurities played a part in the demise of their marriage.

    As sad as their breakup news is, it seems Anna and Chris still have love and respect for each other -- which is all you can really ask for.

    "We're great, and he's amazing," Faris noted on Live with Kelly and Ryan. "We're great friends and we always will be. It's so true, it's so true. Life is too short."
