Anna Faris and Chris Pratt Announce their Divorce; Are Tabloid Rumors to Blame?

In today’s shocking and sad news, Hollywood stars Anna Faris and Chris Pratt are announcing their separation after 8 years of marriage.

Anna, 40, made the surprising divorce announce via her Instagram page stating: “We are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still love each other and will always cherish our time together.”

Many are now wondering what went wrong with the couple who by all appearances seemed to have it all. There is some speculation that Chris’s quick rise to A-list status might have played a role in their split.

Indeed as just some months ago back in December of 2016, Anna revealed on a podcast show that tabloid rumors about Chris, 38, cheating made her “feel insecure”.

Anna explained back then that she tried to ignore the rumors of a strain in her marriage, but “I just remember feeling so hurt in a way that bothered me, because I didn’t want to think of myself as somebody who could be affected by … tabloid s–t.”

She then added, “I take pride in how great my relationship is with Chris, but having said that, of course, in this crazy world where he’s off doing movies and I’m in L.A. raising our child, of course I’m going to feel vulnerable, like any normal human would.”

And while she didn’t believe the rumors to be true, she still admitted, “It made me feel incredibly insecure.”

Well here’s to hoping the two will be able to have an amicable divorce for the sake of their son Jack, 4.
