Her Split With Chris Pratt Broke Hearts Worldwide. Now Anna Faris Has Opened Up About Her Marriage

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris looked like the perfect Hollywood couple. Young, talented, attractive, and rich, they seemed like they had it made. So, when the couple called time on their marriage, it left fans with questions as well as broken hearts. Were the rumors of an affair true? Well, Faris finally spilled the beans on the split. And what she said revealed a whole new side to her relationship with the Guardians of the Galaxy star.

Love on and off screen

Judging by Faris’ words, the separation had hurt her. And by then, the romance of the early days may have seemed a very long time ago. She and Pratt had first met when they both went to read for the comedy movie Take Me Home Tonight. Adorably, the on-screen lovers ended up becoming a real-life couple.

Whirlwind marriage

But perhaps Pratt and Faris married too quickly. After dating for a few months, they swiftly got engaged. Then, during a stay in Bali in July 2019, the pair noticed on a menu that the hotel did weddings. So, they got hitched right then and there! It was a moment that Faris seemed to reference when she opened up about the split.

New arrival

After that, the two actors added a supporting boy to their cast. Yep, in August 2012, they welcomed their son, Jack, into the world. But the joy surrounding their new arrival was mixed with worry. Jack arrived prematurely, meaning he had to spend time in neonatal intensive care.

Heartbreaking words

Pratt talked movingly of this time at a charity event in 2014. Speaking about holding his son in intensive care, he told the audience, “I made promises in that moment about what kind of dad I wanted to be, and I just prayed that he’d live long enough that I could keep them.” That kind of stress and pain is hard on any parent — and any couple.
