Chris Pratt and Anna Faris separated after eight years of marriage, shocking Hollywood. The two actors were a match made in heaven. Their happily ever after ended when they divorced in October 2018 after separating in December 2017.
And how has their relationship changed since they divorced after so many years of marriage?
They met on the set of Take Me Home Tonight in 2007. In the video, Chris proposes to Anna.
As Cindy Campbell in the Scary Movie franchise, Anna was already a well-known actress when she married Chris Pratt.
Chris reportedly wanted to propose to Anna right away.
“I knew I wanted to marry her quite shortly [after meeting her],” he told PEOPLE.
To say ‘I want to marry you’ the first time you meet her would be absurd. “I could have!”
But there were obstacles, like Anna Faris’ ex-husband Ben Indra. Just after filming ended, Anna and Chris began dating.
Anna had a sneaking notion Chris might propose months before he did after finding an engagement diamond on the floor of his van. Chris proposed to Anna on her birthday, and they married in Bali in 2009.
A joyful family seemed to emerge after Anna gave birth to their son Jack in August 2012. “My main dudes,” Anna wrote with a photo of Jack and Chris.
“Anna and I were designed for each other,” Chris said on Reddit.
“Our friendship, like my odd work and life path, has made me believe in divine intervention and destiny.”
They were the ideal pair. But being a Hollywood celebrity would soon strain their relationship.
Separation From Anna Faris
On August 7th, 2017, the pair announced their split on social media, saying:
“Anna and I have decided to legally separate. We worked hard and are disappointed. For our baby’s welfare, we want to keep his parents’ relationship a secret. We still love each other, cherish our time together, and hold each other in high regard.”
Anna admitted in a 2021 podcast that she and Chris never recognised their problems with their tight group.
“I realise I ignored things I shouldn’t have after every split,” she admitted to guest Rachel Blison.
Despite their divorce, Chris and Anna tried to keep a friendly relationship for their son Jack, who was six at the time.
A year after their breakup, Chris and Anna were pictured walking together.
Three months following their divorce, Chris began dating Katherine Schwarzenegger, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s daughter. Chris and Katherine got engaged after a brief affair and married on June 8, 2019 in Montecito, California.
Anna later remarried director Michael Barrett. The pair eloped earlier this year in Washington State.
“We’re both introverts in a similar way,” she said on her podcast.
“He has two kids, which is great. I’ve learned a lot about myself from his kids. It was very satisfying.”
However, the public frequently criticises Anna for their divorce. Then she chewed so loudly that I had to put in my earplugs to drown it out, but it was love! A recent Instagram photo of Chris and Katherine reads:
Fans were divided at Jack’s absence from the post, and some were upset he had referred to Lyla Marie, Jack and Katherine’s daughter, as ‘healthy.’
Anna and Chris have a great friendship, so we doubt there will be any bad blood.
