London: Actress Anna Faris is keen to start a family with actor husband Chris Pratt and wants to have eight kids.

“I would love to have eight kids! I don't think I can handle it though. I've never done that before, but I do want a lot of kids. We want to populate the world!” a website quoted her as saying.

Faris revealed she knew Pratt was her man as soon as they met on the set of 'Take Me Home Tonight' in 2007.

“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,” she said.

“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,” she added.
