Love is dead
We’ve barely gotten over two serious celebrity divorces – Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, and Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner (we still had hope for those two) – and now we hear that another couple we thought were pretty solid has decided to split up.
Chris Pratt and Anna Faris announced last night that they are separating, after eight years of marriage.
The actors both shared a joint statement on their social media pages, explaining that after trying ‘hard for a long time’, they decided to call it quits.
It stated, ’We 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.’
Chris and Anna fell in love on the set of rom-com Take Me Home Tonight in 2007, and got married a couple of years later. They have a son, Jack, together.
This comes as a bit of a shock, as the actors have always been very vocal about their love for each other.
Back in April, Anna praised Chris for being such a great father and husband, saying, ‘He stood by me and held me and was my anchor. Honey, I want to thank you for being the most incredible person. I love you so much.’
Meanwhile, Chris said the loveliest things about Anna in an interview last year, such as, ‘Anna and I are meant to be together,’ and ‘Anna is a great wife. Very patient and understanding. Very supportive. So kind and genuine always. And she gave me a wonderful son and family of in-laws that I truly love.’
We’re not crying, you’re crying!
