Chris Pratt and Anna Faris have filed for separation after 8 years of marriage, according to statements posted on their official social media pages.
Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really… https://t.co/Zw5HcMQCZ3

The actors met in 2007 on the set of Take Me Home Tonight when Anna was married to actor Ben Indra. They were “twin souls” who grew up 20 minutes from each other in Washington State, though they didn’t meet until they were adults, Pratt said. Once she split with her then-husband, he determined then and there that he would marry her, he told Esquire. They got engaged the following year and their wedding took place in Bali on July 9 2009.
Faris is currently shooting the fifth season of her CBS sitcom, Mom, while Pratt currently stars in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and has the Jurassic World sequel set for release next year. It’s been suggested that the split is partially down to the couple’s hectic work schedules, with Faris busy with her sitcom and various other projects and Pratt taking on huge blockbuster movies. He has spent most of this summer away in the UK and Hawaii shooting Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom; and although Faris and Jack visited him on location, Pratt’s schedule would have been hard on his family.
My dear sweet @annafaris getting flashbacks from her hilarious role in Lost in Translation. Thank you for the support honey! You look so beautiful. These press tours can be such a whirlwind. I'm grateful to have you and the boy with me on this one. Although it's 3:00am right now, I was just awakened by a square kick to the back as little man climbed into bed and then must have had a karate dream or something and now I can't sleep. I'm on insta instead. All you dads and moms know what I'm talking about. 😂♥️🙏👆👍🏼🙌
