Anna Faris and Chris Pratt are friendly exes — and she’s hoping they can be even closer in the future.

The former couple has been co-parenting 6-year-old son Jack since their split in 2017 after eight years together. Now that Pratt is set to marry girlfriend Katherine Schwarzenegger, Faris opened up about her future hopes while speaking to divorce attorney Laura Wasser for her Divorce Sucks! podcast.

As Jack gets older, the 42-year-old actress says her goal is to “have group Thanksgiving dinners together and to be at that place.”

“Grudge-holding is not something that Chris and I do. So, we wanted to make sure, of course, that Jack was happy, but that we were happy and supportive of each other and that we could have this fantasy idea of, do we all spend Christmas together? Do we all vacation together? How do we make sure that everybody that we love feels safe, and that we also respect the love we have for each other?” Faris said on the podcast.

“Under all of these uncoupling circumstances, I think that we are so good and respectful toward each other,” Faris continued, “and I think there is so much kindness and love, and I know we want to get to that ultimate goal, and I know it sounds lame and optimistic, but that’s what I want.”

In settling their divorce in November, Pratt and Faris each waived their right to spousal support. They’ll continue to co-parent Jack and stipulated they live within a 5-mile radius of each other until their son completed the sixth grade.

Faris has been dating cinematographer Michael Barrett for a year and a half, while Pratt, 39, was first linked to Schwarzenegger, 29, in June.

Both couples took Jack trick-or-treating for Halloween in October, and the group was spotted laughing and smiling together.

The actors have made it clear that they will remain a united front in the wake of their split, with Faris saying on her Unqualified podcast that there is “no bitterness” that Pratt will again say “I do.”

“I’m just so happy that we’re all really happy,” she said, later adding that “they’re both f—- amazing people and I’m so happy.”
