Chris Pratt & Anna Faris Have Announced They’re Separating & The World Is Heartbroken

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris seemed like the perfect couple, from their super sweet proposal story to the crazy way they met. The two grew up 20 minutes away from each other in Washington but didn’t meet until they were costars in Take Me Home Tonight decades later. Their connection was instant, according to Chris. “It was like magnets,” he told ELLE, even though Anna was married to someone else at the time.

Sadly, their relationship wasn’t as strong as it seemed—the actors are separating after eight years of marriage. Chris made the announcement on Facebook Sunday night. “Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating,” he wrote. “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 statement was signed by Chris and Anna. Anna posted the same message on her Twitter.


Many turned to Twitter in this time of extreme grief, with a range of emotions and reactions.

The earth-shattering news has sent some into survival mode.

Others have already given up. (Same.)

Most of us are wallowing in the depths of despair…

…or are still in denial.

A few are even taking it personally.

We’re all just trying to find strength and solidarity in this difficult time.

While it’s always hard on us when a celebrity couple breaks up, we sometimes forget how hard it is on the couple. Wishing Chris, Anna and their family all the best during this tough time.
