Anna Faris & Chris Pratt Are on Really Good Terms Following Their Split

Anna Faris is setting the record straight on her relationship with estranged husband Chris Pratt

The Mom actress told PEOPLE, "We'll always have each other and be incredible friends. There is still so much laughter in our lives together, and he is so proud of me still. We watched each other grow up, and he still cracks me up all the time. And I think I crack him up—unless he's a really good actor and great at faking laughter." 

Romantics everywhere were heartbroken when Anna and Chris announced they were separating after eight years of marriage. The two met while filming the romantic comedy Take Me Home Tonight in 2007 and married in 2009. They share a 5-year-old son, Jack. 

Anna also commented on the strong public reaction to their split. "It's understandable that people seemed so invested in our happiness together. All I can say about that is, it's all true, that we truly adore each other, and we love each other, I think it still comes through." 

Faris is currently doing press to promote her book Unqualified. She revealed she was slightly worried about releasing the book—which features some steamy details about the early stages of her and Pratt's relationship—only a few months after their split. "At first I thought, 'Oh my gosh, this is crazy timing.' Now it sort of feels like maybe in a way everything that's happened helped bring it full circle." Chris wrote the memoir's opening, and Anna said she is "so grateful that he contributed to the book." 

Unqualified hits shelves on Oct. 24, and I for one can't wait to pick up a copy and dive right in.
