Anna Faris - Faris Banned From Tv As A Kid

Actress ANNA FARIS had little knowledge about the cartoon history of her new movie YOGI BEAR - because she was banned from watching TV as a child.
The House Bunny star's mother Karen was so strict, she refused to allow Faris and her brother to sit in front of the small screen after school and would even check up on the pair by feeling the TV's temperature to determine if it had been used.
So the kids came up with a unique way to keep their sneaky pastime a secret.
She says, "When I was growing up, my parents didn't let me watch TV, so I only (saw Yogi Bear) here and there.
"My mum would come home and she'd feel the television so my brother and I would wrap ice in towels to cool the television! We had to be innovative!"
