Chris Pratt, Anna Faris part ways


Anna Faris and Chris Pratt today announced that they are parting ways after eight years of marriage. In a joint statement, they uploaded on their respective social media accounts, the actors wrote that they are legally separating and requested for privacy. “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,” Pratt, 38, posted on his Facebook page.

Faris, 40, shared the same message on her Instagram account. The duo met in 2007 on the sets of “Take Me Home Tonight”. They got married on July 9, 2009, in Bali, Indonesia. Their son, Jack, now four, was born in August 2012. He arrived nine weeks premature and spend a month in the NICU.

Faris recently told People magazine that she and Pratt were a “normal” couple, saying that he “loves to work in the garage, and I love to do laundry and watch reality television — just normal people.”
