Anna Faris knew husband Chris Pratt was the man for her as soon as they met.

The 'What's Your Number' actress met the actor on the set of 'Take Me Home Tonight' in 2007 and says there was an instant attraction between them and she loved how he made her feel protected.

Anna - who was previously married to actor Ben Indra - told You magazine: "Sparks were flying as soon as I saw him - he was so manly, he took care of things; he wasn't petty. I love being married to him. He calms me down. In Los Angeles, where it's hard to find a dude, he's a dude. We discovered we both grew up in little towns next to each other north of Seattle, and there's something so comforting in that. It is really nice to be with someone who reminds you of home."

Anna also says she and Chris are keen to start a family in the near future but at the moment are content with being parents to their dogs.

The 32-year-old beauty said: "I think we would both love to have a big family. My parents tell me I had better start soon. Meanwhile, we have Bonzo and Sherman - pug puppies who are both crazy."
