When Chris Pratt and Anna Faris announced their split after eight years of marriage, it sent shock waves throughout Hollywood. The two actors seemed absolutely perfect for each other. But the fairy-tale romance ended when they separated in December 2017 and divorced in October 2018 

So why did they break up after being married for so long, and what has their relationship been like since their separation? 

Chris and Anna first met on the set of Take Me Home Tonight in 2007. Chris’s character even proposed to Anna’s character in the trailer. Anna was already a big movie star before she became Chris Pratt’s wife and was most famous for her role as Cindy Campbell in the Scary Movie film franchise. 

“It took awhile for me to admit it, because it would be crazy to be like, ‘I want to marry you’ the first day I met her. But I could have!” But there were obstacles in the way – mainly Anna Faris’s husband at the time, Ben Indra. When Anna left her husband at the end of filming, she and Chris immediately began dating.

They got engaged in 2008, but Anna knew that Chris was going to propose months before he popped the question, finding engagement ring on the floor of his truck by accident. Chris finally asked Anna on her birthday and they got married in 2009, in a beautiful wedding ceremony in Bali. 

In August 2012, Anna gave birth to their son, Jack, and together they looked like the very picture of a happy family. Anna even tweeted a picture of Jack and Chris together with the caption, “My main men.”

"Anna and I are meant to be together," Chris said during an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit.
