Chris Pratt texted Anna Faris about his engagement and her response is surprising to say the least
Anna Faris and Chris Pratt called it quits last year, and it all but quelled our belief in that thing we call "love". The erstwhile couple, however, were quick to insist that they still "have love for each other" and that they will "always cherish [their] time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another".
Hearteningly enough, this is something that Faris proved earlier this week, when the world learnt of her sweet reaction to the news that her ex-husband is now engaged to Katherine Schwarzenegger.
Although the internet is clearly having a good time creating drama out of nothing, the actress left sweet comments on both Pratt and Schwarzenegger's posts congratulating the couple and sending her love.
"I'm so happy for you both!!" she commented on the couple's Instagram announcement. "Congratulations!"
Speaking earlier this week on her podcast, Anna Faris is Unqualified, the 42-year-old delved into how she found out about her ex's engagement.
"Sweet Chris, my ex, got engaged to Katherine today and I’m so happy for them," she asserted. She clarified that Pratt texted her after he proposed to let her know his exciting news.
"I knew that it was going to happen and I love her and I love him. I’m just so happy that they found each other," Faris continued. "Chris texted me this morning and he was like, you know, 'I proposed to Katherine last night.' And I was like 'Ah, that’s amazing.' And I texted him back like, 'I just want to remind you I’m an ordained minister!'"
Though, she joked that she's "not very good at it".
"The truth is there isn’t any bitterness," Faris concluded. "They’re both f**king amazing people, and I’m so happy."
Some, of course, took Faris' response in the wrong way. In a since-deleted tweet, one fan wrote "heart-wrenching. Anna deserves so much better treatment. I don’t care if she’s taking it smiling. It seems so off to me."
I mean, it's clear that Faris and Pratt are handling the news with grace and decorum, but to each their own eh?
Pratt and Faris took to social media in August of last year to announce that they had split. "Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating," the statement, which was posted on both actors' Instagram, Twitter and Facebook accounts, read. "We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another."
So, while we're still not wholly over Anna and Chris' separation, it is heartening to see that the pair still have each other's best interests at heart.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
