Anna Faris opened up about her divorce to Chris Pratt and revealed some interesting details. While on the podcast Divorce Sucks! hosted by famous divorce attorney Laura Wasser, Faris talked about her ex and his recent engagement to Katherine Schwarzenegger.
Pratt’s engagement was not a surprise to Faris. She says her ex-husband gave her a heads-up to his proposal plans.
“He called me, like, ‘So, I’m going to ask Katherine to marry me. I just wanted to give you a heads-up.’ And I was like, ‘That’s awesome!’ and I told him that I was an ordained minister,” Faris recalled.
“Under all of these uncoupling circumstances, I think that we are so good and respectful towards each other, and I think there is so much kindness and love, and I know we want to get to that ultimate goal, and I know it sounds lame and optimistic, but that’s what I want.”
She previously said, “Well, Chris and I had a long conversation earlier on about — our goal was to have group Thanksgiving dinners together and to be at that place. Do we do that sooner or later? Grudge-holding is not something that Chris and I do. So, we wanted to make sure, of course, that [son] Jack was happy, but that we were happy and supportive of each other and that we could have this fantasy idea of, do we all spend Christmas together? Do we all vacation together? How do we make sure that everybody that we love feels safe, and that we also respect the love we have for each other? So, he was so sweet, as he always is.”
Faris and Pratt met on the set of Take Me Home Tonight in early 2007. They started dating shortly after and were engaged in 2008. They married on July 9, 2009, in Bali where they eloped on a whim. Their son, Jack, was born in August 2012. He was born premature and had to spend a month in the NICU.
In August 2017 the couple announced their divorce and officially filed for divorce in December. They announced their divorce was finalized in October 2018.
Pratt started dating Schwarzenegger shortly after his divorce and announced their engagement on January 13, 2019.
