Anna Faris has broken her silence over her recent split from husband Chris Pratt.

Last week, Anna and Chris announced they were going their separate ways after eight years of marriage, with hoards of their fans quickly sharing their heartbreak on social media following the news.

The ‘House Bunny’ actress has now spoken out about the break-up for the first time, briefly thanking her fans for their support in the latest episode of her podcast, ‘Anna Faris Is Unqualified’, which sees her and a celebrity guest solving listeners’ problems each week.

She said: “I just want to thank you all so much for all the love I’ve been receiving, and I truly love you.”

Announcing their split in an official statement last week, Anna said: “We tried for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. 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.

“We still love each other and will always cherish our time together.”

She and the ‘Jurassic World’ actor married in 2009, and have a five-year-old son, Jack.

On Sunday night (14 August), Chris made his first public appearance since the break-up, picking up a prize at the Teen Choice Awards for his role in ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’, where many fans picked up on the fact he was not wearing his wedding ring.

He said in his speech: “When I came to Los Angeles, I came from Hawaii and I had all of this blond hair and I was tan and I met an agent because I really wanted to be an actor and get an agent.

“He asked, ‘Wow. Bro you must surf?’, And I said: ‘Yeah.’ And that was the first of many lies I told to get where I am today. Thank you.

I would not be here with the ease and grace I have in my heart without my lord and saviour, Jesus Christ.”
