If your favorite Hollywood couple was Anna Faris and Chris Pratt, I’m sorry to report that you’ll have to move on to the next. In a statement posted to Twitter and Instagram Sunday night, Faris revealed she and Pratt have decided to legally separate. She shared their decision via a screenshot of what looks like a sent text message.
“We are sad to announce we are legally separating,” Faris said. “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 and will always cherish our time together.”
Pratt, who became Mr. Blockbuster almost overnight with a starring role in the Guardians of the Galaxy series, shared an almost identical message to his Facebook page, minutes later:
The news of their split comes after eight years of marriage. They have a son, Jack, who turns five this month. It should be noted that this is a legal separation, not a divorce. All hope for a reunion is not lost, but it seems the two have definitely tried to make it work and at least need a break.
