Chris Pratt and Anna Faris have announced that they are to split after eight years of marriage.
The sad announcement came earlier this morning when Chris Pratt and Anna Faris posted the same statement across their social media channels. It was an announcement that shocked just about everyone as the pair lead quite a private life, giving fans no reason to think that their relationship could have been heading this way.
However, their statement seemed to hint at the fact that this is not a sudden move for the pair, nor a decision that has been made lightly. They said in their statement that they have “tried hard for a long time’ for it to work, and they are “really disappointed” that it has not.
“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,” Chris said in the statement, “We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another”.
It’s definitely sad that it has gone the way it has. Back in April, Pratt seemed to get rather emotional and choked up as he accepted his Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, in which he thanked his wife.
“I wan to thank my wife Anna, I love you. You’ve given me so much. You gave me the greatest star in the galaxy in my little boy, I love him and I love you. We have bonded to make this molecule that is more important to me than air or water, and without it none of this means anything to me,’ he said at the time.
“You have my heart, my dedication, and my trust,” Pratt added.
The couple married in 2009 and have a four-year-old son together. Pratt has appeared in massive blockbuster movies including Guardians of the Galaxy, Passengers, and Jurassic World, over the year. Faris appeared in the Scary Movie franchise, along with TV sitcom, Mom.
