A-listers Chris Pratt and Anna Faris have announced they are ending their marriage, according to a joint Facebook post.

In the post, made public late Sunday evening, the couple wrote, "We are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we're really disappointed."

They asked for privacy for the sake of their son, Jack, and stressed they still have love for each other and for their time together.

Watch the video as "Extra" goes inside their decision to end their 8-year marriage.

In June, Anna opened up about her marriage to Live Happy magazine for an October cover story.

She explained that she and Chris “fit so well together” because they both have roots in the Northwest. “We get each other because even though we met under the lights of Hollywood, we’re from the same place. We both know the same trees and smells and birds. It sounds corny, but those are things that ground us in everything outside of Hollywood.”


Faris described going on a “wildly romantic” date while visiting Chris in London while he was shooting “Jurassic World 2.” He rented a boat and they floated along the Thames while eating scones. Of course, just being at home in Washington was equally great in her eyes. “Our best date is an afternoon at our Washington home. Chris will put out crab pots early in the morning, and later that day, we’ll eat fresh crab with a little butter and just look at the scenery.”

She said they would shrug off any crazy tabloid rumors, saying, “I’m really lucky that I have Chris and we laugh a lot about stupid stuff. I was reading false rumors in a tabloid about us, and I feel so lucky that Chris and I can laugh about it rather than let it ruin our day.”

Anna did confess that she “can’t stand confrontation” and has a “hard time letting go.”
