Chris Pratt and Anna Faris seemed like the goofy, frivolity-filled
, pet-abandoning couple that you could go have beers with until they weren’t anymore. They announced their separation last August and ultimate frat brah Chris filed for divorce in December. Chris recently got very deep and told Entertainment Weekly that “divorce sucks.” Us Weekly reports that his ex Anna agrees with Chris’ astute take on the emotional complexities of ending your marriage. She said so in a SiriusXM Hits 1 radio interview on Thursday.
Chris, 38, did elaborate on divorce sucking in his EW interview, so it’s possible I’m just a catty bitch. I am, but still.
“Divorce sucks,” says Pratt. “But at the end of the day, we’ve got a great kid who’s got two parents who love him very much. And we’re finding a way to navigate this while still remaining friends and still being kind to one another. It’s not ideal, but yeah, I think both of us are actually probably doing better.”
Anna, 41, “completely” agrees.
“We have a great relationship, we really do and we always have. It’s always tough to envision your futures as one thing but I think there’s a lot of love.”
She went on to say that they learned too late that sharing your marriage with your everyone all the time isn’t conducive to, you know, a good marriage.
“And in what we do, there’s so much [unpredictability],” she added of their careers. “I think that it’s a lesson learned a little bit in terms of keeping relationships a little more private potentially even though I don’t wanna. I pride myself on being a pretty open person but I don’t know. It’s tough when you’re under the scrutiny.”
Anna has already moved on and is dating cinematographer Michael Barrett. She also opined to Sirius XM Radio 1’s Michael Yo that she’s redefined what “selfish in love” means. Surprisingly it’s not “when your partner finishes and then rolls over and doesn’t even give you the benefit of a reach-around.” (That would be “Selfish in Love: Gay Edition”)
“I think that it means valuing yourself,” she said on the radio show. “I mean, I was so—I was such an insecure kid that I—if anybody remotely attractive liked me, I was just completely smitten. Like, ‘I can’t believe the popular guy likes me!’ And I think that my mama was always trying to reiterate like, ‘value yourself, value yourself.’ And we talk about that on the podcast [Unqualified] a lot, about how women tend to not have as strong of egos as men and don’t necessarily prioritize themselves.”
It sounds like Chris was a lot more fun (and attentive) before Marvel made him way less pudgy. That’s probably not a problem a lot of couples counselors hear, so no wonder they split up.
