Anna Faris has shared her first comments since the news of her split from Chris Pratt.

On her Unqualified podcast, Anna Faris spoke out after her Chris Pratt split in an emotional message. It’s the first time the actress is breaking her silence since the couple announced they are legally separating on social media.

Anna Faris showed gratitude in her podcast segment, saying:

“Hey, dear listeners. I just want to thank you all so much for all the love I’ve been receiving, and I truly love you.”

Later in the podcast episode, she focuses on the value of relationships and holding onto self-worth and positivity. She answers a question from a woman struggling with her own relationship. Faris’ advice was,

“Don’t be afraid of the future. You’re young. You’re in L.A. There’s a lot of amazing people out there. Don’t feel afraid to feel your independence if things aren’t right.”

She even related the situation to herself.

“I made that mistake, I think, a little bit feeling like, ‘I’m checking my relationship off the list,’ and, um—The final advice I could give you would be know your worth, know your independence, know that you’re young, and there’s so many people out there,” she continued. “There’s so much life experience. I hope you get to live it all and experience a whole lot of people. Life is too short for you to be in relationships where you’re not feeling like this isn’t fully right or somebody doesn’t have your back or somebody doesn’t value you in every way.”

Anna Faris and Chris Pratt revealed they were separating after eight years of marriage on Aug. 6 in a joint statement shared on social media:

“We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed,” Pratt wrote on his Facebook page, signed by both actors. “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.”
