“Anna and Michael were incredibly close and cozy with each other. They were very incognito and kept a pretty low profile. She was really at ease with him and looked comfortable around him almost like they had gone on many dates before. Anna laughed a lot and always had a smile on her face,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY about their Palisades date. “She was glowing while they sat on the patio and ate dinner and it absolutely looked like they were on a date. He was very much into her and they shared a bottle of wine. He was a consummate gentleman as he even scooped her food into her to-go box for her. It was really cute.”
Hollywood’s cutest couple confirmed their separation in August, leaving fans heartbroken. But fear not, as the Mom star says they’re still incredibly close. Anna’s about to release a memoir called Anna Faris Is Unqualified and she’s spilling that she and the Guardians of the Galaxy star are still besties. “There is still so much laughter in our lives together, and he is so proud of me, still,” she told PEOPLE. “We watched each other grow, and he still cracks me up all the time. And I think I crack him up — unless he’s a really good actor and great at faking laughter.” The couple share a five-year-old son Jack and Anna knows how much people loved the former couple’s relationship.“It’s understandable that people seemed so invested in our happiness together. All I can say about that is, it’s all true, that we truly adore each other, and we love each other, I think it still comes through.”
