Chris Pratt has at long last broken his silence on his and Anna Faris‘ earth-shattering split to utter those pearls of wisdom: “Divorce sucks.”
It comes during the final legs of the monster Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom press tour, when Pratt has to start using his face for more than just looking handsome.
Tucked into a little paragraph in a gigantic, exclusive interview with Entertainment Weekly (we get it, you guys get all the fun stuff) was a little note on how Pratt had officially filed for divorce from Faris last December after eight years of marriage.
“Divorce sucks,” he told the publication. “But at the end of the day, we’ve got a great kid who’s got two parents who love him very much. 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.”
The “great kid” is five-year-old Jack, who you probably recognise from Pratt and Faris’ Instagram accounts – y’know, the ONES THAT MADE US SO DAMN ATTACHED TO THIS RELATIONSHIP IN THE FIRST PLACE.
Faris actually spoke up about hating all those “LOVE IS DEAD” comments not long ago, on Dax Shepard‘s ‘Armchair Expert‘ podcast. (Side note, if he and Kristen Bell also split I will throw in the GODDAMN towel. See also: Posh and Becks.)
“We obviously cultivated something and it was rewarding for a while,” she said. “It was like ‘People seem to think we got all this shit all right. I had a little bit of a childish feeling of ‘Oh come on, fucking grow up’ — a little anger… But that’s not fair either because I cultivated it. We intentionally cultivated the idea of like, ‘Look at this beautiful family’, and there were so many moments that weren’t like that but like anything on social media, you don’t post ‘Where the fuck is the toilet paper?’ or whatever.”
Honestly, this world would be a better place if more people posted “where the fuck is the toilet paper?” content, but that’s just me.
Since the split, Faris had been dating cinematographer Michael Barret, while Pratt is dating… no one. Possibly his dinosaurs, IDK.
Are you prehistoric and scaly and looking for love?
Meanwhile, the new trailer for Fallen Kingdom has dropped and those huge dinosaur fuckers can use DOOR HANDLES now. The end is nigh, and it comes with a side of genetically enhanced lizards.
