Another celebrity couple has called it quits but this couple’s announcement is one that fans did not see coming.
Chris Pratt and Anna Faris have split one month after celebrating their 8th wedding anniversary. They announced the shocking news via social media in a joint statement. Pratt posted the news on his Facebook page, while Faris shared it in on Instagram.
“We are sad to announce we are legally separating.We tried for 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 love each other and will always cherish our time together." – Chris Pratt and Anna Faris.
The A-list Hollywood stars have one son, 4-year old Jack.
Their very shocking announcement comes just months after the two gushed about each other in their speeches at Pratt’s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony.
Faris introduced her husband in a heartwarming speech where she referred to him as “a wonderful man” and thanked him for all that he has done for her. The Mom star also said that she knew they would be just as happy living in the woods together, as they were living in Hollywood.
When an emotional Pratt took the podium, he thanked his wife for all that she has done for him. The Guardians of the Galaxy star went on to praise her for giving him the greatest gift, their son. He ended his speech by telling Faris “You have my heart, my dedication, my trust.” You can check out both of their speeches in the below video.
Last month, Faris discussed her relationship with Pratt to People Magazine, saying they're normal people, even admitting they would occasionally try to slip away from Hollywood to spend time in Washington.
"I don't think that's something, when you're an actor, that you're prepared for," said Faris in her interview. "There are two different roles that you play — the one on-camera and the one in public. That's the tricky part.
Throughout their marriage, the couple was constantly showing their love, support and respect for each other. Whether it was being playful on the red carpet or expressing their feelings on social media, these two were oozing love and happiness. Sadly, despite their picture perfect persona, Pratt and Faris are separated, proving once again that things are not always as they appear to be, and no relationship is perfect.
