In the day since Chris Pratt and Anna Faris announced their separation, sources have begun talking to outlets about what happened. And while none of this is (or is likely to be) confirmed by Faris and Pratt themselves, TMZ has a pretty believable report. The news outlet reports there really was no third person involved, no “unforgivable” transgression. Sources told TMZ that Faris and Pratt just had a different vision of what they wanted their family to look like longterm—and that they truly are “incredibly sad” over the end of this, too.

Faris, sources told the outlet, wants a more traditional family “that is pretty much together most of the time,” TMZ wrote. “She wants a base … which for her has been Los Angeles. We’re told she wants more kids.” (Faris has discussed in her podcast how hard dealing with the distance from Pratt when he’s shooting projects has been.)
Pratt, meanwhile, “has had some life-changing experiences that has required him to adjust the balance between family and career,” the outlet noted. “When he married Anna back in 2009, she was much bigger than him. He’s now at the top of the Hollywood food chain, and with that comes opportunities that take him all over the world, shooting movies that take him away from home for months at a time.”
“Our sources say he doesn’t want more kids … at least not in the foreseeable future, because he can’t juggle a growing family with his career. And he can’t be corralled in one place—even L.A.—because that’s not the way the movie industry works.”
The two are “devoted” parents to their son Jack Pratt and have an “unbreakable bond” in him. And, even though they announced a legal separation, TMZ reported that “the wheels have been set in motion for divorce,” but it will be “as amicable as it gets.”
