Something tells us newly single Chris Pratt is going to be just fine even though he’s currently navigating the choppy waters of divorce. Pratt announced his separation from Anna Faris in July 2017 and later filed for divorce in December 2017, but there seem to be only amicable vibes between the exes, which is arguably the best outcome one can hope for in a situation like this.
While chatting with Entertainment Weekly and promoting his upcoming film, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Pratt spoke briefly about where he was — mentally, emotionally and so forth — when it comes to his divorce. “Divorce sucks,” he told EW. “But at the end of the day, [Anna and I have] got a great kid who’s got two parents who love him very much.” That’s so sweet it’s kinda hard not to get weepy.
He continued, “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.”
Faris has also spoken about where she stands with Pratt. While appearing as a guest on Dax Shepard’s podcast, Armchair Expert, in March, Faris echoed Pratt’s latest comments. “We had an unbelievable marriage, and we have a great friendship now,” she told Shepard at the time. “And we love our son to death, and I’m really proud of that because I’m not sure I did that well the first time [I got divorced].”
As for Pratt, he seems to be focusing his energy on parenting and his career. He has a big summer ahead, with Fallen Kingdom coming out in June and, before that, Avengers: Infinity War coming out at the end of April. Who has time to dwell on the past when there are so many great things to look forward to? For Pratt, there’s no time at all — and that’s a good thing.
