Kat Von D is the latest celeb to visit Anna Faris for her “Anna Faris is Unqualified” podcast, and she and the “Mom” star found some common ground in an unlikely place.
“Prior to my husband [musician Rafael Reyes], I dated nothing but jerks. I don’t even know if I’ve been taken out on a date. Is that sad?” the makeup mogul, 37, star told Faris.
While the former “LA Ink” didn’t single out which “jerks” she was referring to, her exes include Motley Crue guitarist Nikki Sixx, “Jackass” daredevil Steve-O, Deadmau5 and Jesse James (who famously cheated on then-wife Sandra Bullock).
“I dated someone who cheated on me intensely. I don’t even know how it’s physically possible to f**k so many people,” she told Faris, 43, of an ex who she believes slept with 18 people during the course of their one-year relationship. “I think I was in denial a little bit. I wanted this to be real and it wasn’t. I used to be a hopeless romantic.”
Faris countered by revealing one of her exes gaslit her when she questioned his fidelity, making her doubt her own intuition.
“I woke them up in the middle of the night and was like, ‘Are you f**king so and so?’ He was like, ‘You’re crazy,’” she explained. “I’m pretty oblivious sometimes. Especially in relationships. Of course, I don’t want to believe that anything [is wrong], but there was that gut feeling that was starting to grow more and more.”
Added Faris: “Not to be too gender-specific, I do think as women we’re sort of taught to suppress fear or suspicion, because we might be deemed as suspicious or neurotic or crazy.”
As a result, Faris said she wound up staying in that relationship longer than she should have. “I think in my case I was like, ‘Okay, maybe he’s right. Maybe I am crazy.’ The fact that I felt those things and I chose to bury them [stinks].”
