"Divorce sucks!": Chris Pratt spills the beans on life after his split with Anna Faris
After their decision to split up, Anna Faris has spoken but Chris Pratt has been noticeably silent on the issue. The actor couple called it quits after an eight-year marriage. It was a surprise for fans since many adored the way the couple behaved with each other and the part of their lives they shared on Instagram, putting up the image of a couple very much in love and being a happy family.
Talking to Entertainment Weekly, Pratt said: "Divorce sucks. But at the end of the day, we’ve got a great kid who’s got two parents who love him very much. And we’re finding a way to navigate this while still remaining friends and still being kind to one another. It’s not ideal, but yeah, I think both of us are actually probably doing better."
The actors share a 5-year-old son, Jack. Anna seems to have moved on with cinematographer Michael Barrett while Chris Pratt is currently single.
Chris Pratt broke the news of the split via social media and told fans, "Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we're really disappointed." For the sake of their son, Jack, Pratt promised to "keep this situation as private as possible moving forward."
He also added that he will always love Anna and respect her. These comments were reciprocated by Anna who took to her own account to share her emotions. Both the stars are seeking to get joint custody of Jack. As reported by E!News, "He's surrounded by so much love. We constantly reinforce what a great kid he is. The key is surrounding him with a lot of joy and happiness, which he has a ton of."
The Overboard actress also admitted that the former couple’s social media presence added to the pressure after their breakup.
"I had a little bit of a childish feeling of ‘Oh come on, f — king grow up!’ Like, [there was] a little bit of anger. But that’s not fair either, because I cultivated it. We intentionally cultivated this idea of like, ‘Look at this beautiful family.’ There were so many moments that were like that but like anything on social media, you don’t post like, ‘Where the f — k is the toilet paper?!’ or whatever," she said on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast.
