Anna Faris makes major career move after two year acting break and latest comedy bombed at the box office – as she RETURNS to A-List agency CAA
Anna Faris is making career moves.
The 46-year-old actress has signed with mega-agency CAA, which boasts A-list clients like Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg, and Reese Witherspoon.
She has signed with the agency in the past and is putting her trust in them again to further her career after a two-year acting hiatus and a recent flop at the box office with The Estate.
Faris starred alongside Allison Janney in the hit CBS sitcom Mom from 2013 to 2020 playing a newly sober single mom trying to get her life back together after moving in with her own mom (Janney).
The House Bunny star left the series in a shock exit after seven seasons and CBS cancelled the show shortly after, airing just one more season after her departure.
The move to new representation comes at an interesting time.
She took a two-year break after leaving her sitcom and her latest dark comedy The Estate, co-starring Toni Collette and David Duchovny, received poor reviews and has a 29 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Besides her film and television career, she also hosts a successful podcast called Unqualified.
Faris, who broke out as a comedic actress in the early 2000s with lead roles in films like Scary Movie, The House Bunny and Overboard, recently accused late director Ivan Reitman of inappropriately touching her on the set of one of her early films My Super Ex Girlfriend.
She claimed that late Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman ‘slapped my a**’ during the first day of production of 2006 romantic comedy My Super Ex-Girlfriend.
