Actor Chris Pratt and actress Anna Faris announced on Sunday that after eight years of marriage, they will be getting a divorce.
Pratt published a Facebook post that read:
“We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another.”
The two big time actors were married in 2009 and have a 4-year-old son together.
Pratt, 38, became internationally known in recent years for his roles in “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Jurassic World.”
Faris, 40, has starred in the television series, “Mom,” for five seasons opposite Emmy-winner actress Allison Janney. She is also the voice of the Jailbreak character in the recently-released, “The Emoji Movie.”
Earlier this year, Pratt was interviewed by The Associated Press and spoke about balancing his home life and his career:
“For the first part of our relationship, we put our careers at the top. We were like, ‘Honey, if you get a job and you have to go to Istanbul for six months, you’re going. I’ll help you pack. I’ll Skype with you every day. You’re living your dream, I’m living my dream. That’s what we do.'”
News of the couple’s separation caused a social media burst and has become a worldwide trending topic on Twitter. Fans are shocked and disappointed, to say the least.

I’m honestly really upset about Chris Pratt and Anna Faris separating more than I should be for a couple I don’t know. pic.twitter.com/XYSIfXFQ6S

“Raise your hand if you have ever been personally victimized by the seperation of Chris Pratt and Anna Faris”
