Anna Faris has been out of the spotlight for a little while now. She recently revealed that she took time away from acting after exiting the popular CBS sitcom Mom after its eighth season in 2020. “I kind of took my foot off the gas and I spent a lot of time with my son. It felt really good,” the 46-year-old stated.
But now, she is about to deliver one of the most important messages ever on behalf of the human race. Specifically, avocados. In her first-ever Super Bowl Ad, she plays the role of Eve in the Garden of Eden. Posing nude for Avocados From Mexico, Faris says it “felt liberating.”

Anna Faris’ Take on Eve Stuffing Her Face With Avocados Just Makes Sense
A sneak peek of the ad and photos published exclusively by People makes it look both epic and hilarious. Anna Faris is impishly grinning and holding avocados while a long blonde wig covers her breasts.
“Since time began, there has been one fruit with the ability to change the world,” says the narrator. “One fruit that can alter history with one small bite.”
Anna Faris turns for a second, wide-eyed, cheeks looking like a chipmunk’s. And with that intro, it’s clear that the avocado is the metaphorical forbidden fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.
Ah, but if Eve’s ultimate sin was bringing us avocado toast, is the human race truly doomed?
“To be able to promote a product that I love so much, who doesn’t love Avocados From Mexico?” Faris told People. “I’m really grateful.”
Faris Said She Felt Liberated Being Mostly Naked and Would Move to a Nudist Colony If She Could Take Her Hair
Prancing around naked on the set of the Garden of Eden also forced Faris to make a quick conscious decision.
“When I realized that the wardrobe in my trailer was a tiny little thong and these jelly-like bra things, I guess they’re just nipple covers, I thought to myself, all right, this is what my beautiful day is going to look like,” the 46-year-old Unqualified podcaster told People. “I felt really proud that I’m kind of at this place in life where I could spend a lot of time feeling modest and insecure, or I just embrace it.”
She added that there were others on set with similar outfits if that’s what you call them.
“There was also a lot of other minimally dressed young, very beautiful people. And I just thought, I’m just accepting this is just rad. We’re just in the Garden of Eden, which is glorious… we were all in it together.”
Faris also said that her gigantic wig helped her feel less vulnerable. And also, she would consider moving to a nudist colony.
“It felt liberating — for the first time in my life I was like, ‘maybe I could be a part of a nudist colony if I take all the hair with me.'”
Hopefully, that nudist colony has avocado trees, too!
Anna Faris Kept the Super Bowl Ad Top Secret Until Now
Hilariously, Anna Faris has kept the Super Bowl commercial such a secret that even her family didn’t know what she was doing. When she asked her parents to watch her children so she could film the ad, they were under the impression that she was working on a horror flick. Considering her history of playing the main character in the Scary Movie franchise, it makes sense.
“My parents think that I’m writing a horror movie, which I’m not,” she said. “This is how little they know about the industry. I told them that I needed to location scout in Mexico City. So, I needed to be gone for a few days, and they bought it.”
Avocados From Mexico Is a US-Mexico International Collaboration to Increase Food Supply & Jobs
As game day rapidly approaches, some viewers tune in just for the commercials. The Super Bowl of course always has the best ones. But what’s even better about Anna Faris’ timeslot is that it’s for a brand that contributes to the food supply chain. Maybe it’s the post-COVID economy or maybe it’s simply the fact that humans love avocados, but the thought of the little black and green gems flooding our grocery stores is mouthwatering.
Unlike most food brands, Avocados From Mexico was established by two major international organizations. Its website states that its parent companies are Association of Avocado Exporting Producers and Packers of Mexico (APEAM) and the Mexican Hass Avocado Importers Association (MHAIA). Avocados From Mexico was created by the Hass Avocado Promotion Research and Information Order. It had oversight from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Its mission is simply to bring avocados from Mexico to the United States.
Super Bowl and Avocados From Mexico Go Hand-In-Hand
Avocados From Mexico premiered its first Super Bowl ad in 2015, the same year that the company started up. It was all about the “first draft” and showed Mexico picking the avocado. The website states that its 2015 Super Bowl campaign led to a whopping 845,105,686 views. 7 years and 7 ads later, the brand has garnered over 41 billion impressions.
Staying true to its roots, Avocados From Mexico is set to return and remind us of what we’re truly grateful for. The massive bowl of guacamole that everyone wants to lap up with a spoon while their eyes are set on the Super Bowl LVII. And if you start to feel guilty, just remember that it’s all Anna Faris’ fault. She’s the one who first ate the fruit.
The Super Bowl LVII will be held on Sunday, February 12, in Glendale, Arizona’s State Farm Stadium. You can watch it live on Fox at 6:30 pm ET.
