Anna Kay Faris (born November 29, 1976 in Baltimore, Maryland, USA) is an American actress, best known for her roles in the Scary Movie films as Cindy Campbell.
Faris, the daughter of Jack (of Scottish/Irish descent) and Karen (of German, English and French descent), grew up in Edmonds, Washington, north of Seattle. Her parents encouraged her to pursue acting when she was young and she gave her first professional acting performance at age 9 at the Seattle Repertory Theater. After attending Edmonds Woodway High School, she studied English literature at the University of Washington and lived for a time in London.
Her first significant film role was in the independent production Lovers Lane (1999). Her breakout role was the horror film parody Scary Movie (2000). The 5'5" Faris is a natural blonde, but dyed her hair black for the filming of Scary Movie, leading to the misconception that she is a brunette.
In 2004, Faris married actor Ben Indra, whom she met while working on Lovers Lane and had dated since 1999.
In 2005, she appeared in Just Friends with Ryan Reynolds and Amy Smart where she played a supporting role as a pop-diva singer named Samantha James. While the film received mixed reviews from critics, it gained a small cult-following, and many fans praised Faris for her performance. Faris starred with Uma Thurman and Luke Wilson in the feature film My Super Ex-Girlfriend, released on July 21, 2006. She also has two films in the works, Mama's Boy with Jeff Daniels and Diane Keaton, and Smiley Face with Adam Brody and John Cho.
