Anna Faris got a canary-yellow diamond halo ring for her third engagement

Anna Faris leaving the InStyle Day of Indulgence party.

We didn’t talk much about Anna Faris last year. She wasn’t doing much, gossip-wise – the most attention she got in 2019 was when her ex-husband Chris Pratt got engaged to Katherine Schwarzenegger, and Anna was completely gracious about it and publicly welcoming to Katherine. I think it helped Anna that she had moved on from Pratt very quickly, and she didn’t seem concerned at all about his dating/romantic life. She’s been in a relationship with Michael Bennett for a while (like, two years?) and Anna’s friend and costar Allison Janney has just confirmed that Anna is engaged.

Anna Faris is officially engaged. The actress, 43, was first spotted wearing a canary yellow diamond in November that was speculated to be an engagement ring. However, she kept quiet about the big news — until her “Moms” co-star Allison Janney confirmed it on Monday.

“I know she’s been engaged for a long time,” Janney, 60, revealed to Us Weekly. “I kept it very quiet, I’ll have you know! So, I celebrated with them a long time ago.”

According to Janney, Faris let her unconventional ring do the talking instead of making an announcement to the public and even her friends and family. Spokesperson for Shane Co., Mary Frances Joseph, estimates that the center cushion-cut yellow diamond weighs in at 4 carats; it sits in a split-shank diamond halo setting.

“While halo engagement rings remain a top choice for brides today, we love Anna’s trendsetting choice for a yellow center stone,” Joseph told Page Six Style, estimating the sparkler’s value at between $75,000 and $100,000.

However, experts at Rare Carat — who put the size of the halo-set stone at closer to 3 carats — think Faris’ ring may have cost less. “From the picture, the center stone appears to be more on the ‘light’ side of the fancy yellow scale, rather than the more expensive ‘intense’ fancy yellow colors that command higher prices,” CEO Ajay Anand told us. “Given this, we’d estimate the stone to be $20,000.”

This isn’t Anna’s first time down the aisle, and she’s even suggested that after two divorces, she’s not so sure about the institution of marriage anyway. But people change and fall in love, and maybe this guy is super-stable and low-key, which is what she needs in her life (in my opinion). Anyway, I just wanted to cover this because there is a blurry photo of her engagement ring:

…And I really dislike it! I’m a basic bitch so I love a diamond halo surround, but a canary diamond? COME ON. Engagements that start with yellow diamonds NEVER last. That being said, it is her third engagement and maybe she felt like something different, ring-wise. Or maybe this is what the dude picked out and she’s not going to say anything. But if a man was ever like “but you love yellow diamonds, right” I would dump him. Life’s too short.

    Tom Petty!

  2. Velvet Elvis says:

    Is Anna anorexic? She’s looking more than a little bony in these photos.

    • SM says:

      My initial instinct was that Tiffany Haddish should cook dinner for Anna ( because she said Angelina looks hungry) because this looks alarming. And I am with you on the ring. Ugly.

    • Joanna says:

      Idk, but those pictures make me concerned.

      • smcollins says:

        Coincidentally we caught the end of Scary Movie 3 on tv yesterday evening, so after seeing her in that and then in these photos this morning…yeah, the difference is pretty jarring (I know the movie is from years ago, but still).
        Congrats on her engagement, though. I hope she’s happy.

      • lisa says:

        me too. her thighs have completely disappeared.

    • Kosmos says:

      Omg, definitely way too thin. To me, she doesn’t look good at all, not attractive that’s for sure. Not sure what the appeal is.

  3. Cristina says:

    Why is she so thin?! :(

  4. Stacy Dresden says:

    I’ve seen worse rings. It’s not my style at all. I like yellow diamonds though, why not?? Yellow is a pretty, happy color.

    • Who is Justice Beaver? says:

      My engagement ring is very similar, except the yellow centre stone is a sapphire. I designed the ring and will always adore it. That stone was a bugger to source! It’s all about personal taste I guess! But I had to weigh in when the article said engagements with yellow stone rings dont last.

  5. Birdix says:

    There’s something about her posture—it looks like it’s painful to walk.

  6. Amy says:

    There was speculation when she was still with Chris Pratt that she had some unresolved substance issues, maybe that’s still a thing? That could be causing her overly thin figure? I remember it being speculated as a stressor on their relationship (other then his wandering wang issues).

  7. T says:

    With zero intentions of body shaming, she doesn’t look well. I hope she’s OK.

    • S says:

      This. I don’t think photos are at an all accurate way to judge anyone’s health, yet still admit my first thought upon seeing those was that Anna Faris looked unwell.

  8. Ariel says:

    Now I want a chart of all celebrity engagements that didn’t make it to the alter/ and the divorces and what kind of stone was on the engagement ring.

    I hope Ms Faris is happy she successful in her relationship. She seems like a serial monogamist, who needs a jump off to leave.
    Some people are just built that way internally.

  9. Originaltessa says:

    This is going to sound mean, and perhaps it is, but her body looks like someone you’d see on COPS, an alcoholic and drug addict. All bone and sinew and just all around unhealthy. If she didn’t sound blitzed wasted in every interview or podcast lately I’d just chalk it up to poor diet, but I suspect there’s more to it.

  10. Rachel says:

    Harsh words about the ring Kaiser! I have a yellow diamond and love it; I’m a bit different than the average bride. Been married 5 years and still happy. Hope I’m the one to prove your theory wrong!

    • Kate says:

      My friend has been married almost 10 years and she also has a yellow diamond so you aren’t alone.

  11. GrassRoots says:

    She should be a much bigger star and I blame sexism in Hollywood that she isn’t. She’s a super funny comedic actress – I wish there were good projects out there for her. If she was a dude, she would be a bigger star than she is.

  12. Texas says:

    I like it. But maybe that is because I have already had 3 traditional diamond engagement rings. What can I say? I’m old and only one ended in marriage (and divorce). I’ve been married now for 12 years and we didn’t spend the money on an engagement ring. I got earrings instead. But I would wear that ring! Although, I do think an emerald would be more my taste.

  13. Cindy says:

    I hate to comment on people’s bodies like this but I have to agree her figure here is really alarming. Her legs look so bony it’s like they’ll break at any moment.

    I hope she’s well, silly Anna Faris comedies will always be a guilty pleasure of mine.

  14. Liz version 700 says:

    She is so funny on “Mom” I enjoy her a lot. She does look not well here. I hope she is ok.

    • Spicecake38 says:

      I watch Mom too,super funny!
      And not body shaming at all,but I’ve noticed on Mom that she looks incredibly thin,she’s definitely not a large built person,but yeah these pics-hope she’s alright.
      Congrats on the engagement 💍

  15. lucy2 says:

    I’m not one for yellow diamonds, but hopefully she is happy with it.

    I’m going to echo others here, don’t want to comment on her body, but she doesn’t look well. Hope she is ok.

  16. Keira says:

    I am ring shopping right now and, at least where I’m shopping, there are some alternatives to the bright white diamonds, such as unpolished (?) grey diamonds, and non-diamonds, mostly sapphires in a variety of blue and blue-green colors. This is my second time around and I would welcome a non-(white) diamond in a ring.

    • If you want to just look for some ideas there’s a jeweler called eidelprecious on Etsy, they have some gorgeous sapphire rings. Congrats on your engagement!

      • lucy2 says:

        Oooo, those are pretty! I love sapphires.
        I like a classic emerald cut diamond for an engagement ring, but some of those sapphires are making me think otherwise.

    • Spicecake38 says:

      I know a girl who has a really pretty engagement ring and when I commented she said it was actually blue moissanite.I love unusual rings.

  17. BeanieBean says:

    Random thoughts:
    What the heck is wrong with yellow diamonds?
    Her lip injections just look so odd.
    She has decent calf muscles for someone who looks so…frail. Frail is the word.
    Not a good idea to have your wallet sitting at the top of your unzipped handbag.

  18. Jana says:

    Her hands and legs look like she’s 80…she would look a lot younger if she gained 10-15 lbs.

  19. SJR says:

    Mom is a good comedy show. Anna looks unwell in these photos. Bad lighting or caught her on a bad day?
    I enjoy her on Mom and wish everyone happiness in their lives.

  20. Jace says:

    She looked healthier in the House Bunny and she was tiny then.. wonder what’s going on :/
