Anna Faris Responds to Chris Pratt's 'Divorce Sucks' Comment and Says She's Still a Romantic
While promoting her new film Overboard, the actress, 41, told Marie Claire that Pratt’s comment felt, “more dramatic than it is,” she says. “Chris and I have a great friendship and Jack is so happy and so loved.”
The two split in August 2017 after almost 9 years of marriage and share 5-year-old son Jack.
Pratt, 38, opened up about how he’s dealing with the split in Entertainment Weekly‘s cover story in mid-April and admitted that it wasn’t the ideal situation, but they were both fully devoted to Jack.
“Divorce sucks. But at the end of the day, we’ve got a great kid who’s got two parents who love him very much,” Pratt said. “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.”
Faris added that her breakup hasn’t changed her outlook on love or romance.
“I do think I’m a romantic because I love the small things in life,” she said. “Just like the little pleasures of life that feel like secrets. I still always want to keep that as a part of my life, does that make any sense at all? Maybe. I don’t know.”
The actress previously said she learned to keep relationships more private due to the unpredictability of the industry.
“I think that it’s a lesson learned in keeping relationships a little more private, potentially, even though I pride myself in being a pretty open person,” Faris said. “But, I don’t know, it’s tough when you’re under the scrutiny.”
