Allison Janney has nothing but praise for Anna Faris following the news of her recent separation.

The actress, 57, gave an update on her Mom costar after her split from Chris Pratt and said that Faris is making it through the breakup and going to work with a smile on her face.

“She just is a trooper. She comes to work with a smile on her face,” Janney told E! News. “She’s a professional. I love her to death. Her private life she keeps pretty much to herself. She comes to work and gets the job done. She’s got a big smile on her face and she’s getting through it.”
