Reason Behind Anna Faris and Chris Pratt's Split Reportedly Revealed

Anna Faris and Chris Pratt shocked the world when they announced their divorce over the weekend, and her father is finally opening up about the split.

In a joint statement to USA showbiz programme Entertainment Tonight, they said: "With tremendous love and respect for each other, and the 18 years we spent together as a couple, we have made the decision to separate".

After meeting on the sets of their film Take Me Home Tonight in 2007, the couple dated, fell in love, and got married in 2009.

The Guardians of the Galaxy actor, who shares four-year-old son Jack with Anna, took to his Facebook page to share the sad news in an official statement.

"Our priority is, of course, our daughter's happiness and well-being during this challenging time, and so we ask for your support and respect for our privacy as we continue to raise her together and navigate this new chapter for our family". Anna wanted the family to be together most of the time and wanted them to have a base in Los Angeles. "When I was falling in love with him, I loved how kind he was to people".

Chris and Anna often hammed it up during their public appearances, showed off plenty of PDA with kisses and cuddles, and gave each other lots of looks of love.

As for Chris, the outlet noted that he's at the top of his game right now and wants to keep going with his career, and that means being away from his family in LA for months at a time.

"Infidelity was not an issue in the split between Chris and Anna, who are dealing with their separation as amicably as possible". Let us know in the comments section.

She also said "I think that's one of the many reasons we fit so well together".

It is claimed that Chris did not wish to have more children in the foreseeable future and that there are "other personal reasons for the split, but the way they see family in the long-term was a big factor in their decision". It took a while for me to admit it, because it would be insane to be like, "I want to marry you" the first day I met her.

While they seemingly had the flawless marriage, Anna also candidly revealed it wasn't ideal and she struggled to address issues.

"One of the awesome things about doing this podcast, it has been that I feel like I've been able to talk about my relationship with Chris, that doesn't involve tabloid gossip".

Anna and Pratt have not released any more details about their divorce.
