Anna Faris feels ''incredibly vulnerable'' after opening up about her life in her new book 'Unqualified'.

The 'Mom' star is ''really proud'' of herself for talking about her own insecurities and feelings of jealousy in her memoir and hopes other people can ''relate'' to her feelings.

Speaking on Late Night with Seth Meyers, she said: ''I've been able to hide behind my characters for my career, which has been such a luxury. Then I thought, 'Maybe I have something to say,' you know, and I can tell people about how lonely I was growing up or how insecure I felt or jealous or whatever. I'm really proud of it.

''I feel incredibly vulnerable. I feel really proud because it's me, it's an exposure of who I am. I've been doing this acting work for awhile and I feel unbelievably vulnerable at this stage - but I feel proud and I hope that people can relate to it. Hopefully there's this collective idea that we all go through the same stuff.''

Meanwhile, Anna - who has five-year-old son Jack with her estranged husband Chris Pratt - recently admitted she was ''really really nervous'' about releasing her memoir.

Speaking on her Unqualified podcast, she said previously: ''I feel really, really nervous because it feels intimate. I'm excited and when I first got the book deal, I thought, 'What a great adventure this is going to be,' and now that it's getting closer, I feel nervous in a sense that I've been able to always hide behind characters. And now it's like, this is me. It feels a little scary.''
