After eight hilarious and envy-worthy years of marriage, actors Chris Pratt and Anna Faris are legally separating.
The pair made the announcement via Facebook on Sunday evening as Pratt posted the heart-wrenching message to his page. The 38-year-old said he and Anna “tried hard” to make their marriage work and are “disappointed” in the outcome.
Chris added he and 40-year-old Anna want to keep the separation as quiet as possible for their young son’s sake. Their son, Jack, will turn five this month.
“…we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward.”
Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. …
While some of Pratt’s Facebook followers called him out on posting the news to social media as he states he wishes to keep the matter private, others question the validity of the post.
“This doesn’t appear to be a verified account… No guarantee it’s really Chris Pratt posting. I call bullsh** until it’s verified.”
However, with over 3.7 million followers, it seems the Facebook page can be considered a legitimate source. Other commenters expressed their sorrow at hearing the news one of Hollywood’s most beloved couples is splitting up.
“I’m sorry, my heart breaks for you. Take care of your family.”
But it seems some simply don’t believe Chris and Anna are truly going their separate ways as they ask if this is an early April Fools joke.
“Is this an early April fools joke?”
Hopefully Pratt and Faris are able to work through any differences as we (and most of the world) would be sad to see them divorce.
