Chris Pratt and Anna Faris may have recently separated, but they still have plenty of love for one another. On Sunday night, while Faris was presenting an award at the 2017 Emmys, Pratt was out and about in Los Angeles, and showered his ex with compliments when paparazzi asked about her.
In a video posted by TMZ, Pratt walks around L.A. while chatting with a paparazzo about the Emmy Awards ceremony. "Were the Emmys tonight?" the Guardians of the Galaxy actor joked when the reporter asked why he was absent from the star-studded event. "I guess I wasn't invited," he said, laughing. "I didn't get an invitation. I haven't checked my mailbox lately, though."
Despite not walking alongside Faris, 40, on the red carpet at the Microsoft Theater, nor cheering her on from the audience, Pratt, 38, said he was certain she had excelled in her task of presenting the award for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series alongside her Mom costar Allison Janney. "I know she did great. Anna did an amazing job, she rules," he said. "She was great. Her and Allison, they both looked great." He added: "Go watch Mom on CBS!"
Sunday night's event marked Faris's first red carpet appearance since she and Pratt announced their split in early August. The couple, who wed in 2007 and share 5-year-old son Jack, broke the sad news in a statement they both posted to their respective social media pages. "We are sad to announce we are legally separating," they wrote. "We tried really hard 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 the situation as private as possible moving forward. We still love each other and will always cherish our time together."
Not long after the announcement, Faris discussed her marriage on her long-running podcast, Anna Faris Is Unqualified, in which she gives callers relationship advice. "Life is too short to be in relationships where you feel this isn't fully right or somebody doesn't have your back, or somebody doesn't fully value you. Don't be afraid to feel your independence if things aren't right," she said, adding, "I made that mistake, I think, a little bit, like, 'I'm checking my relationship off the list,' and if that would be the final piece of advice I could give you, that would be know your worth, know your independence."
