Faris, 40, opens up about her relationship with Pratt, 38, since their split, in this week’s PEOPLE issue. “We’ll always have each other and be incredible friends,” says the Mom star.
“There is still so much laughter in our lives together, and he is so proud of me, still,” she adds. “We watched each other grow, and he still cracks me up all the time. And I think I crack him up — unless he’s a really good actor and great at faking laughter.”
The pair announced their decision to separate after eight years of marriage in August. The two share 5-year-old son, Jack.
“It’s understandable that people seemed so invested in our happiness together,” Faris says of the public’s reaction to their split. “All I can say about that is, it’s all true, that we truly adore each other, and we love each other, I think it still comes through.”
Faris’ new book Unqualified (out later this month) includes details of how the former couple fell in love on the set of their movie Take Me Home Tonight (2011), their spur-of-the-moment marriage in Bali and the birth of their son.
“At first I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, this is crazy timing,’” she says of the book coming out just months after the split. “Now it sort of feels like maybe in a way everything that’s happened helps bring it full circle.”
Pratt even penned the foreword of the book.
Along with singing her praises, the Jurassic World star writes in the book that he and Faris will be “just fine” and plan to move forward by continuing to “amicably co-parent a human” together.
“I am so grateful that he contributed to the book,” says Faris. “Chris and I are really great friends, and I think that we always will be.”
