Anna Faris opens up on her relationship with Chris Pratt following his engagement to Katherine Schwarzenegger
Anna Faris and Chris Pratt were one of the funniest and most beloved celebrity couples around until their split in 2017. And while many of their fans were shocked and disappointed that they had decided to divorce, it looks like they might now be one of the funniest and most beloved celebrity ex-couples.
When you break up, especially from something as serious as a marriage in which you had a child, it can be hard to keep your emotions in check. After all, a break like that can leave you feeling betrayed, bitter and resentful. It takes a lot of work, but pushing through those feelings to maintain a healthy friendship with your ex can be fruitful - as long as they're worth it.
This is definitely something that can be tested when someone moves on and starts dating another person - and even more so when they get engaged, as Chris Pratt did.
Back in January, Pratt announced that he and his new girlfriend Katherine Schwarzenegger were getting engaged, writing: "Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes! Proud to live boldly in faith with you. Here we go!"
Following the announcement, Faris revealed that Pratt had let her know that he and Katherine had got engaged before he announced it to the world - a move that avoided a lot of potential awkwardness. Following the announcement, Anna has shown her happiness for the new couple - and is still interested in staying on good terms with her ex.
Speaking on the Divorce Sucks podcast, the actress spoke about how Chris told her about his upcoming announcement. "He was so sweet, as he always is. He called me like, 'So I'm going to ask Katherine to marry me. I just wanted to give you a heads-up'," she said. "And I was like, 'That's awesome!' I also told him that I was an ordained minister."
Since their split, she and Pratt have tried to remain respectful towards each other. "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," she said.
According to Faris, they are both continuing to work towards an "ultimate goal" where they can spend vacations together as a family, with their six-year-old son, Jack.
"I know we want to get to that ultimate goal, and I know it sounds lame and optimistic, but that's what I want. Our goal was to have group Thanksgiving dinners together.
"Grudge-holding is not something that Chris and I do. So, we wanted to make sure that Jack was happy, but that we were happy and supportive of each other and that we could have this fantasy idea of all spending Christmas together, vacations together."
Divorce must be a heavy thing to go through, but these two seem to be doing it right!
