When it comes to love in Hollywood, there are some couples that appear to not stand a chance and others that look to be each other’s happily ever after. We never worried about Chris Pratt and Anna Faris because not only did they seem deeply in love but they also looked like they actually liked each other. But on Sunday night, Pratt and Faris broke the news — and our hearts — in a joint statement on social media, announcing they are legally separating.

Sigh. If you never knew what the death knells of love sound like, this is it.
Needless to say, people are pretty devastated:

Chris and Anna met in 2007 on the set of Take Me Home Tonight and were engaged by the following year. They married in July 2009 and share four-year-old son Jack. Aside from their disappointment, their statements make it clear that they love Jack very much and are trying to keep their split private for his sake.
Naturally, there are some fans out there looking for a reason that their favourite couple is separating, and some are pointing the finger at Jennifer Lawrence. Many claim that Lawrence and Pratt, who co-starred in Passengers last year, had an affair while filming. Let’s just say if their on-screen chemistry was any indication, then that’s a big fat no.
TMZ is reporting that Anna wanted more kids while Chris wanted to focus on work, hence being away from the family’s L.A. home often. The gossip site adds that these two are “devoted parents” and are going to keep their impending divorce as amicable as possible.
It’s always sucky to see a family split up, especially one as awesome as Chris, Anna and Jack. We wish them all the best going forward though we’re still devastated, not gonna lie.
A big Mother’s Day kiss and hug across the pond to my darling wife @annafaris and our sweet boy. I miss you both so much. I love you. Due to forced perspective in this picture Jack looks much bigger than Anna. How beautiful are they!? And the azaleas too! Richmond Park in full bloom. #happymothersday
