One of our favourite Hollywood couples, Chris Pratt and Anna Faris, announced their legal separation just over a week ago. Both actors shared news of the split via social media.
Since then, GOTG star Pratt made his first public appearance at the 2017 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday where he accepted the Choice Sci-Fi Movie Actor Award.
Now Anna Faris, who is best-known for Scary Movie, has thanked fans for their support since the split. It is the first time the actress has spoken publicly since the couple separated.
The actress opened her Unqualified podcast today with a message of appreciation to her fans: "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."
Faris often discussed her relationship with Pratt on the podcast and later on in the new episode, she talked about the importance of self-worth and being valued in a relationship while answering a question from a woman struggling with her boyfriend and one of his co-workers.
"Don't be afraid of the future. You're young. You're in L.A.," Faris said. "There's a lot of amazing people out there. Don't feel afraid to feel your independence if things aren't right."
She even related the situation to her own: "I made that mistake, I think, a little bit feeling like, 'I'm checking my relationship off the list,' and, um—The final advice I could give you would be know your worth, know your independence, know that you're young, and there's so many people out there. There's so much life experience. I hope you get to live it all and experience a whole lot of people. Life is too short for you to be in relationships where you're not feeling like this isn't fully right or somebody doesn't have your back or somebody doesn't value you in every way."
