Anna Faris felt "very insecure" after rumours circulated about Chris Pratt's alleged infidelity.
The 40-year-old actress - who married the 'Jurassic World' actor in 2009 - has admitted she felt "so hurt" by the claims her partner of seven years was cheating on her, and the blonde beauty has revealed she never wanted to be a woman who was "bothered" by marital trouble, although it has plagued her ever since.
Speaking to PEOPLE about how she has coped with the allegations and having her relationship in the limelight, she said: "Chris and I, we talk about this a lot. We grapple with a lot of the ideas of being a public couple.
"We were in the public a little bit, there were some tabloid rumours about strain in our relationship.
"I just remember feeling so hurt in a way that bothered me, because I didn't want to think of myself as somebody who could be bothered by ... tabloid s***.
"It made me feel incredibly very insecure."
And 'The House Bunny' star - who has four-year-old son Jack with Chris - has admitted she takes pride in her "great relationship", but having to face the growing speculation whilst the 37-year-old hunk was away filming and having to look after their child made it difficult to deal with.
She explained: "I think it was a combination of things. I take pride in how great my relationship is with Chris, but having said that, of course, in this crazy world where he's off doing movies and I'm in L.A. raising our child, of course I'm going to feel vulnerable, like any normal human would."
Meanwhile, Chris has taken to social media to gush about his wife on her birthday.
He tweeted: "Please join me in wishing Happy Birthday to my darling @AnnaKFaris I'm sending you love from afar, beautiful lady.
"Anna is a daughter/sister/mom/leader/wife and most of all, an actor who loooooves to play characters. Happy Birthday love. (sic)."
