Video: Anna Faris on Eating Squirrels Shot By Her Husband Chris Pratt

By David Draper

It’s not often the subject of hunting comes up in Hollywood conversations, but squirrel hunting recently got its 15 seconds of fame when Anna Faris, who stars in the CBS sitcom Mom, mentioned her husband, actor Chris Pratt, fed squirrels to her family at Thanksgiving on Jimmy Kimmel Live this past Wednesday.

Faris seemed a bit queasy about the whole ordeal, telling Kimmel that Pratt and her brother regularly “harvest squirrel during the holidays.”

“They have to cook it outside on the barbecue,” said Faris, “Because my mom refuses to have, I don’t know, the smell of cooking squirrel in her kitchen. I don’t know why. And they season it heavily cause, you know, you have to. It’s squirrel.”

While Faris might be uncomfortable with hunting (or at least plays it up for the camera, her husband doesn’t hide his passion for the outdoors. Pratt, star of Parks and Recreation and movies like Zero Dark Thirty, often talks about hunting during interviews, including a recent issue of Outdoor Life.

I've cooked many squirrels over the years and I don't recall them giving off a bad smell, Just the smell of grease and whatever spices you use to coat the squirrels with. If cooked right they turn out tender but you do get some older ones that are a bit tough. Bake them in your oven smothered in chicken gravy and add crushed peppers for even a better tasting squirrel.

I love the taste of squirrel and I don't care to over-season them.
