The statement, signed by both Faris and Pratt, concluded, “We still love each other and will always cherish our time together.” Pratt posted a similar message to his Facebook page.

The Hollywood couple met while working together on the 2007 film “Take Me Home Tonight,” according to a 2014 profile in Esquire.

Pratt entered the public consciousness for starring as the lovably dopey Andy Dwyer in NBC’s “Parks and Recreation.” He then parlayed his sitcom stardom into a career leading major Hollywood blockbusters, notably the “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Jurassic World” movie franchises.

Faris earned a following for her leading role in comedies including the “Scary Movie” and “The House Bunny.” Since 2013 she has starred opposite Allison Janney in the CBS sitcom “Mom,” and more recently, she launched a hit podcast called “Anna Faris is Unqualified.”

    yuck. good riddance to chris pratt …i’ve never liked that guy. what a social climber! anna married him when he was nothing & she was known in hollywood. now that he’s a big “star” he dumped the mother of his child overboard. he’s a no-talent opportunist w/ no sense of loyalty. a community college dropout who comes across as an empty headed lug in interviews. anna, u r better off…
