Earlier this week, Hollywood's golden couple Chris Pratt and Anna Faris announced their joint decision to end their eight-year marriage, saying: "we tried hard for a long time, and [are] really disappointed."
The news shocked the world, with fans quickly looking for something - and someone - to blame.
Anna, who currently works on the US TV show Mom, also hosts a podcast, Anna Faris is Unqualified, and just last week the actress opened up about the loneliness she feels in keeping up her "public character."
"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," she said while talking to guest musician Josh Ostrander.
"I play a public character. I laugh loud sometimes - maybe too loud but it is a public character sometimes," she continued. "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."
The couple, who share a son Jack, have dealt with their fair share of Hollywood gossip, with persistent cheating rumours plaguing their relationship while Pratt was filming Passengers with co-star Jennifer Lawrence.
“[That] stung a little bit harder than I thought it would,” Faris told Us Weekly at the time.
“I had always kind of believed that part of the rumours of celebrity couples were sort of true because they had never been part of my life. I was like, ‘Oh, maybe there’s a kernel of truth to that.’"
“It’s been a little devastating because for us, it’s like, ‘What the heck?’. This has been blindsiding to us. We have an incredible relationship. It has been weirdly stinging.”
