Fans were stunned in August of 2017 when Anna Faris and Chris Pratt announced their divorce. The pair had seemed like the perfect celebrity couple — each with their own powerful careers. They appeared together on various red carpets and always seemed like the picturesque family on social media.

However, we now know that appearances can be deceiving. After eight years of marriage and welcoming their son, Jack in 2012 — the acting power couple called it quits.

Now, Pratt is remarried to Katherine Schwarzenegger and he and Faris seem to be in a really positive place when it comes to co-parenting their son. The Overboard actress explained to Women’s Health, “What Chris and I try to do is to communicate openly. We reiterate that there aren’t rules to this. We have a lot of love and friendship, and our big goal is to protect Jack. I cherish my family, my close friends, my child — that makes the rest of it worth it.”

However, Faris may have hinted that infidelity was a part of their split.

Hollywood is really challenging on marriages, especially for high profile couples who are constantly in the spotlight or away from one another working. When Faris and Pratt initially meet — the Mom actress was more in the limelight.

However, as the Marvel actor’s fame elevated, first with the hit sitcom Parks & Recreation and later with Guardians of the Galaxy — Pratt became a household name. “I don’t think that’s something when you’re an actor, that you’re prepared for,” Faris told People Magazine. “There are two different roles that you play — the one on-camera and the one in public … That’s the tricky part.”
