Anna Faris and Chris Pratt's divorce in 2017 hit us all hard. Another one of our favourite Hollywood couples breaking up? Say it ain't so.

Since the split, Anna and Chris have naturally moved on, with the Guardians of the Galaxy star welcoming a daughter with wife Katherine Schwarzenegger last summer while Anna is engaged to cinematographer Michael Barrett.

But this week Anna was reflecting on her eight-year marriage to Chris and also her marriage to actor Ben Indra from 2004 to 2008.

Speaking on her Anna Faris Is Unqualified podcast with guest Gwyneth Paltrow, she shared: "My two other marriages were with actors and I don't think we did a great job of eliminating competitiveness. Or at least I didn't, being a proud person, and not wanting to reveal vulnerability."

She added, "Any hint of competitiveness and comparison, I didn't handle that very well, I don't think. And I hope I've grown from that."

The couple, who were often considered one of the “strongest” in Hollywood, announced that they were separating in 2017 with a joint statement released on social media:

"We tried 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 this situation as private as possible moving forward," the statement read. "We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another."
