Anna Faris blames herself for creating the perfect relationship with Chris Pratt on social media when that wasn't the whole truth
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.
