Chris Pratt opened up this week about how he’s dealing with life since he and Anna Faris announced they were separating after eight years of marriage.

“Divorce sucks. But at the end of the day, we’ve got a great kid who’s got two parents who love him very much. And we’re finding a way to navigate this while still remaining friends and still being kind to one another,” the 38-year-old actor told People magazine.

“It’s not ideal, but yeah, I think both of us are actually probably doing better,” he added.

The popular celebrity duo announced last August that they were separating after trying “hard for a long time” to make things work out.

“We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed,” Pratt wrote. “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 have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another.”

Faris recently talked about her thoughts about marriage and admitted she needs to “figure out” the purpose of it after both of her marriages ended in divorce.

“I need to figure out what the purpose is,” Faris explained. “Is it safety for your children? Is it convention? Is it so other people respect your relationship more?”

The Hollywood couple met in 2007 when they worked on the movie “Take Me Home Tonight,” and later married in 2009. In 2012, their son Jack was born.
