By  | 

Celebrity divorces are a dime a dozen in Hollywood, but every now and then, a split shocks us.The latest surprise conscious uncoupling belongs to the seemingly very happy Chris Pratt and Anna Faris, who announced on Sunday that they are legally separating. As is often the case when a beloved Hollywood couple announces a breakup, the Internet did not handle it well.

On Sunday evening, Anna Faris and Chris Pratt both released the same statement via their social media channels.

The statement read that Pratt and Faris “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.”

The couple was pretty famous for being lovey-dovey with each other on red carpets, and were tweeting about each other just weeks ago.

Twitter users did not handle the news well.


Rumors have swirled about the state of their marriage for the last year, which Faris addressed on her Podcast, Anna Faris is Unqualified. “ I take pride in how great my relationship is with Chris, but having said that, of course in this crazy world where he’s off doing movies and I’m in L.A. raising our child. Of course I’m going to feel vulnerable, like any normal human would.”

For his part, Pratt had gushed about how happy he was when his family joined him for the Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol II press tour. “My dear sweet @annafaris … Thank you for the support honey! You look so beautiful. These press tours can be such a whirlwind. I’m grateful to have you and the boy with me on this one. Although it’s 3:00am right now, I was just awakened by a square kick to the back as little man climbed into bed and then must have had a karate dream or something and now I can’t sleep. I’m on insta instead. All you dads and moms know what I’m talking about.”

The pair met in 2007 on the set of Take Me Home Tonight and have been married for eight years. They have a four-year-old son, Jack.
