Actors Chris Pratt, Anna Faris announce they are separating

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris have legally separate. "We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another", says the announcement, signed "Chris Pratt and Anna Faris".

Taking to their respective social media accounts, Anna, 40, and Chris, 38 - who share four-year-old son Jack - posted an identical statement calling time on their eight-year marriage.

Pratt has previously sung Faris' praises both as a person and a mother.

Representatives for Pratt and Faris could not be reached immediately for comment. The report in People also quoted a source saying that Faris seemed unhappy because of Pratt's busy schedule and the separation while he was away was hard to bear for her.

Unfortunately, we know things hadn't been easy for couple over the past year. Faris is now shooting a fifth season of her CBS sitcom Mom. We tried hard for a long time, and we're really disappointed. 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?'.

The two met in 2007 and were married in July of 2009. Specifically, she said they made her feel "incredibly, very insecure".
