Hollywood marriages are highly characterized by their lavish and expensive ceremonies. Nowadays, the news of failed celebrity marriages tends to dominate the media rather than the marriage itself. Surprisingly, both the most successful and least successful celebrities, even those that looked inseparable ab initio have all fallen victims in such marriages. As Hollywood has the highest record of failed celebrity marriages, the industry is still accommodating more as the likes of Ben Indra and Anna Faris has equally joined the long list of unsuccessful celebrity couples. Learn more about Ben Indra and his relationship with the talented actress below.
Who is Ben Indra?
Ben Indra is a talented American film and television actor, best known for his appearance in blockbuster movies such as Raising Dads, Voodoo Academy, and Tempest Eye, among others. He garnered fame in his marriage with the multi-talented American actress cum producer and author Anna Faris. The pair were married for four years before their relationship busted into flames.
The movie star was born on the 23rd day of February 1979 in Sonoma County, United States. His birth name was Benjamin Jeffery Indra but he later adopted Ben Indra as his official name. Ben is a very private person, hence, nothing much is known about his childhood, family background, and educational qualifications. Being an actor you can easily figure what he naturally has a talent for.
Ben got his career to a start in 1999 while playing the minor role of Bradley in the romantic drama Lovers Lane. After that, he joined the cast of the MTV anthology series Undressed where he portrayed the role of Marlon in the fourth season. In the early 2000s, Ben starred in the three movies including Voodoo Academy, Damaged Goods, and Tempest Eye.
He followed it up by playing the role of Brad in the short film Rites and Kate in Kate Brasher. He also joined the cast of the popular family comedy TV series Raising Dad which aired from 2000 to 2001. Playing the role of Josh, he appeared alongside Bob Saget and Kat Dennings in several episodes of the series until 2001. Later in 2005, Ben starred in Love Inc after which he disappeared from TV screens. Since then, there have been no news of Ben’s subsequent endeavors.
What is His Relationship with Anna Faris?
It is an already known fact that Ben Indra was previously married to the gorgeous movie star and author named Anna Faris. Anna is most famous for her role in movies such as Alvin and Chipmunks, Scary Movie, Lost in Translation and The House Bunny, to mention a few. The actress was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland in the United States. She started her acting career when she was nine and has starred in dozens of movies to date. In addition to being an actress, Faris is equally a comedian, writer, and producer. She obtained a degree in English Literature from the University of Washington in 1999.
The couple first saw each other while on the set of Lovers Lane in 1999. Seeing their on-screen chemistry, the pair fell in love with each other and eventually ignited a relationship. After five years of a successful relationship, the couple walked down the aisle in June 2004. Their wedding ceremony was graced by their close pals and family members.
After their wedding, the couple continued to enjoy a blissful married life until three years later when their relationship turned sour. Due to irreconcilable differences, the couple filed for a divorce in April 2007. However, their divorce process was completed in February 2008. Their divorce settlements included paying Ben Indra the sum of $900 thousand in spousal support in addition to other properties.
Soon after their divorce, Ben who has been a low-profile personality decided to step away from the limelight. Since then, there were no news of his subsequent relationships and hook-ups. Anna, on the other hand, started another relationship with Chris Pratt, an American actor in 2007. The couple fell in love while appearing alongside each other in the movie Take Me Home Tonight. The following year, they announced their engagement and later exchanged marital vows in July 2009. Their wedding took place in Bali, Indonesia.
The couple welcomed their first child, a son named Jack Pratt in August 2012. Just like her first marriage with Ben, Anna’s relationship with Chris also took a drastic turn; thus leading to a divorce that was finalized in 2018. After the divorce, the pair got equal custody of their son.
