Sad news from one of Hollywood's favorite couples: Anna Faris and Chris Pratt are calling it a day after almost a decade together, including eight years of marriage, People reports. "Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we're really disappointed," the couple said in a statement on Pratt's Facebook page. "Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward," said the couple, who met on the set of Take Me Home Tonight in 2007. Their son, Jack, will be 5 years old this month.

"We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another," said the statement from Faris, 40, and Pratt, 38. Roles in movies including Jurassic World and Guardians of the Galaxy have made former Parks and Recreation actor Pratt one of the most popular leading men in Hollywood, the BBC reports. When he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in April this year, he paid tribute to Faris, saying: "Without you, none of this would mean anything." (More Anna Faris stories.)
