We know being married in Hollywood is hard, but we genuinely thought Anna Faris and Chris Pratt were THE celebrity couple that would be together forever. Unfortunately, our assumptions were proven incorrect. After eight years of marriage, the pair has broken up.
The 38-year-old Guardians of the Galaxy actor made the announcement on his official Facebook page last night. The statement read:
“Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another.”
The 40-year-old echoed his thoughts in her own post on social media.

Just last month, the blonde told People that being married in the public eye is tougher than many would assume.
“I don’t think that’s something, when you’re an actor, that you’re prepared for. There are two different roles that you play — the one on camera and the one in public. That’s the tricky part.”
The Mom actress was previously married to actor Ben Indra, who she was still with when she and the Jurassic World star met back in 2008. Anna and Chris got together shortly after her first divorce was finalized, and they were married in July 2009. Just over three years later, the duo welcomed their first child, a son named Jack, on August 25, 2012.
We’re HEARTBROKEN right now and can’t even imagine how the celebs and their adorable little boy are feeling at the moment.
