One of the most shocking headlines to hit the internet this year was the recent divorce of Chris Pratt and Anna Faris. For as long as many remembered, the two were the perfect Hollywood couple who seemed to be the embodiment of true love. Alas, all good things come to an end, and so did the couple's eight romantic years together.
It goes without saying that both of the Hollywood stars have been going through a tough time following the divorce. But despite the current hardships, Faris took the time to thank those who helped her out in her most trying of times: her loyal fans.
Through Thick And Thin: Anna Thanks Her Fans
While on her personal podcast Anna Faris Is Unqualified, the Scary Movie star thanked her fans for their continued love and support:
"Hey dear listeners, I just want to thank you all so much for all the love I've been receiving, and I truly love you."
In her podcast, #AnnaFaris would talk about her daily life and her marriage with Guardians of the Galaxy star #ChrisPratt. On occasion, she would even give some relationship advice to her listeners. But it was also on her casual podcast where Faris revealed the sadder side of her time with Pratt.
In May of this year, Faris revealed that she was spending long amounts of time away from Pratt due to his work on multiple Hollywood blockbusters such as Avengers: Infinity War and the Jurassic World sequel. Later in July, she revealed that she was battling feelings of loneliness that were a byproduct of her career as a professional performer.
“I play a character on Mom, I play a character in movies, but I also play a public character. There’s definitely a loneliness and, like, an internal element to being a performer. I feel like I have to laugh.
I play a public character. I laugh loud sometimes — maybe too loud but it is a public character sometimes. Like, if I have a red carpet thing or whatever, which I’m never comfortable, but I’m always like, ‘I’m fine!’ And it never feels like me.”
Just a few weeks ago, Faris and Pratt publicly announced that they would be separating after trying their best to stay together. Though the two have yet to share their reasons for the split, it's believed that Pratt's rapid rise to stardom and his ensuing busy schedule may have played a part in their decision.
Faris's own autobiography, titled Unqualified, will be released before the year ends and is expected to reveal previously unknown aspects of the actress' life — including her marriage with Pratt. Perhaps some fans' burning questions will finally be answered when the book hits shelves. It should also be noted that Pratt wrote the book's foreword as well.
The heartbreaking news took everyone by surprise, and saddened many fans. However, it's good to know that Anna Faris has found comfort among her dedicated fans who stuck with her since day one.
