Breakups are hard. They're hard even when you're not famous and you can take as much time as you need before talking about it publicly. But when you're a celebrity, people don't give you time and space to do anything, let alone process a breakup. After Chris Pratt and Anna Faris announced their separation back in August, so many people were left feeling devastated. Anna spoke up about the breakup after a few weeks, but Chris Pratt has so far remained silent on the topic. However, that changed this past weekend when Pratt commented on Faris' first public appearance since the split.
Chris Pratt and Anna Faris were everyone's dream team.
They were goofy, they were wacky, and they were totally in love.
They were one of the Hollywood couples you could always point to and say, “They get it.”
Earlier this summer, the couple announced they were separating after eight years of marriage. The Internet didn't take it very well.
Pratt made a post on Facebook saying that both he and Anna were very sad about the announcement.
We were also very sad.
Faris shared her own very similar announcement at the same time Pratt's was published.
If only one half of the couple had said something, it may have been a mistake. But once both parties weighed in, we knew it was real. And it was terrible.
Suddenly, we were left feeling like love is a lie. We kept waiting for the other shoe to drop and for Chris and Anna to jump out and say "gotcha!"
The Internet doesn’t typically handle breakups very well, and this one was no exception.
We were rooting for you, Chris and Anna! We were all rooting for you!
On August 15, Faris broke her silence about the separation on an episode of her podcast Anna Faris is Unqualified.
In the episode, Faris gave some relationship advice that seemed to be extra relevant after her own separation:
“Life is too short to be in relationships where you feel this isn’t fully right or somebody doesn’t have your back, or somebody doesn’t fully value you […] Don’t be afraid to feel your independence if things aren’t right […] I made that mistake, I think, a little bit, like ‘I’m checking my relationship off the list’ and if that would be the final piece of advice I could give you, that would be know your worth, know your independence.”
Now, over a month later, Chris Pratt has finally spoken up about Anna….
