When Anna Faris and Chris Pratt were married, they were one of a few Hollywood couples to receive the distinction of “goals.” At one time, half the internet was dedicated to listicles showering the couple with praise — so when they announced their separation, we really felt love was dead.
Now with her relationship in her rear-view mirror, Faris has a lot of complicated emotions about how the public viewed her relationship and what it was like being branded #RelationshipGoals.
“Chris and I did talk about…we got, like on the Twitter feed, ‘Love is dead’ and ‘Relationship goal.’ We obviously cultivated something and it was rewarding for a while. It was like ‘People seem to think we got all this shit all right.’ I had a little bit of a childish feeling of ‘Oh come on, fucking grow up’ — a little anger,” she told Dax Shepard on his podcast, Armchair Expert.
However, in the end, she took responsibility for how we all viewed the Pratt-Faris marriage.
Now, Faris is reportedly dating cinematographer Michael Barrett and everything seems peachy with her now-ex-husband.
“We had an unbelievable marriage and we have a great friendship now, we love our son to death… I’m really proud of that,” she said in the interview.
It’s healthy to hear that even ~celebrities~ succumb to the pressure of living a happy, perfect, filtered Instagram life. We’re tempted to call Faris and Pratt #ExGoals, but let’s just say that these two are living their lives the best damn way they know how.
