Earlier on Monday (7th August), our jaws dropped and hearts sank when Chris Pratt and Anna Faris publicly declared that they were legally separating.
According to sources, the longtime Hollywood couple, who have been married for 8 years, are parting ways not because there’s a 3rd party involved or someone cheated. The main cause is due to the fact that their views of family values have differed over time.
An insider told TMZ that Faris wants to have more children, but unfortunately, Pratt’s growing career doesn’t allow him to juggle a growing family. Plus, his movie commitments requires him to shoot and subsequently promote his movies all over the world; that could take up months at a time.
Although there may be other personal reasons for the breakup, the way they view family in the longterm was a major factor in their decision. Rumours were also circulating online that Jennifer Lawrence, who starred alongside Pratt in “Passengers”, was to blamed for the couple’s split. Those rumours were quickly debunked. The Oscar-winning actress is after all, happily dating Darren Aronofsky.
In speaking to “Live Happy” magazine’s upcoming issue, the interview with Faris gave even more insight into her split with Pratt. “I can’t stand confrontation, which maybe is a character flaw. But having said that, I do feel like when I do get upset, which is rare as my husband and family would say, I have a hard time letting go,” the 40-year-old beauty shared about her marriage struggles.
When Pratt was in London filming “Jurassic World 2”, Faris recalled a sweet gesture that he did during her visit. “He rented a boat that took us up and down the Thames. He had scones and it was wildly romantic. He’s constantly doing really romantic things like that which are so wonderful.”
She added, “But I also think that for us, our best date is an afternoon at our Washington home. Chris will put our crab pots out early in the morning, and later that day, we’ll eat fresh crab with a little butter and just look at the scenery. I think that’s one of the many reasons we fit so well together.”
“We get each other because even though we met under the lights of Hollywood, we’re from the same place. We both know the same trees and smells and birds. It sounds corny, but those are things that ground us in everything outside of Hollywood,” Faris told the publication.
