LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Actress Anna Faris has been tickling the funny bones of audiences in films such as "The House Bunny" and on TV shows like "Friends" since the late 1990s. She has also shown versatility in movies like "Brokeback Mountain" and programs such as "Entourage."

This week, Faris stars in adult-oriented comedy "What's Your Number?" She plays Ally Darling, a single woman on a quest to marry, but having slept with 19 men she feels like one more would make her "unmarriageable." Soon, Ally learns marriage is not about numbers and love is closer than she thought.

Faris, 34, spoke with Reuters about the film, working in adult-oriented comedies, and co-starring with her real-life husband, Chris Pratt.

Q: Ally feels like one more guy in her bed means no ring on her finger. Is 20 too high or too low?

A: "When this script was at another studio, they thought 20 was too high. They wanted to make it 16. To me, I don't know if 20 is high enough! Don't you feel like it should be 70 or something? (laughs)"

Q: Hmmm, what are you saying? Or, more importantly, what are you implying about yourself?

A: "(Laughs) I didn't get out into the world early enough. Plus I had (orthodontic) head gear. If you want your child to stay a virgin, put them in headgear. That's guaranteed to keep your number down! (Laughs)"

Q: Your real-life husband, Chris Pratt, who is on TV's "Parks and Recreation" is also in the film as one of your past lovers. How was it working with him?   Continued...
