Last week, “Jurassic Park” star Chris Pratt and his wife of eight years, actress and comedienne Anna Faris, announced that they’re separating.
The two took to their own respective social media pages to inform fans of their split, saying they agreed to “legally separate”:
Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. …
Up until now, the two have remained quite tight-lipped as to why they split, but Anna Faris may have just clued the public in on it — that is, at least her side of the story.
According to People, Faris was in the middle of giving relationship advice to a caller on her weekly podcast “Unqualified,” when she began relating their relationship woes with her own, saying:
“Life is too short to be in relationships where you feel this isn’t fully right or somebody doesn’t have your back, or somebody doesn’t fully value you. Don’t be afraid to feel your independence if things aren’t right.”
She continued, saying that’s where she might have gone wrong in her own life, which includes two marriages:
“I made that mistake, I think, a little bit, like ‘I’m checking my relationship off the list’ and if that would be the final piece of advice I could give you, that would be know your worth, know your independence.”
Although she didn’t elaborate any further, it’s clear Hollywood’s favorite couple was definitely having some issues — and one might have been about how much Pratt valued his wife behind closed doors.

We still love each other and will always cherish our time together."
