Anna Faris Speaks Out on Divorce, Thanks Fans For Support

by at .

As you may have heard, Chris Pratt and Anna Faris announced that they're separating last week after eight years of marriage.

Some fans held out hope, noting that Pratt and Faris stated only that they're separating, and did not detail any plans to divorce.

Unfortunately, it seems it may be time to let go of that last lingering shred of optimism.

Sources claim that Pratt may be dating someone new already, as he was reportedly spotted boarding a private jet with a "mystery blonde" on Monday.

Other insiders state that the couple has secretly filed for divorce.

Earlier this week, Faris spoke out about the split for the first time, and while she kept her comments relatively vague, it didn't sound as though she's anticipating a reconciliation.

“Hey, dear listeners: I just want to thank you all so much for all the love I’ve been receiving, and I truly love you,” Faris said on the latest episode of her podcast.

Faris was undoubtedly feeling downcast in the days after news of her split went public, but she maintained a lighthearted tone throughout the podcast.

At one point, she responded to a question sent in by a young woman who was uncertain about the future of the relationship.

Knowing what we know now about the recent tumult in Anna's personal life, it's hard to imagine that her advice wasn't informed by personal experience.

“Don’t be afraid of the future. You’re young. You’re in L.A.,” the actress explained. 

“There’s a lot of amazing people out there. Don’t feel afraid to feel your independence if things aren’t right.”

Faris even went so far as to reveal that she's been guilty of rushing into relationships because she felt that that's what was expected of her:

“I made that mistake, I think, a little bit feeling like, ‘I’m checking my relationship off the list,'” she told her audience.

“The final advice I could give you would be know your worth, know your independence, know that you’re young, and there’s so many people out there,” she added.

“There’s so much life experience. I hope you get to live it all and experience a whole lot of people.”

Obviously, Anna could have been talking about her experience in a previous relationship.

But a lot of fans are interpreting her comments as a summary of what she's learned from her divorce.

Whatever the case, it seems Faris has a sure sense of who she is and will be just fine going forward.

We wish her and Chris all the best.
