Taking to Twitter following the announcement of the split, many have accused J Law of getting between the two.
One tweeted: “I can’t believe Chris Pratt and Anna Faris are splitting up this is all Jennifer Lawrence’s fault.”
Another wrote: “Jennifer Lawrence broke up Chris Pratt’s marriage lol”.
While others are predicting the two will become an item, with one writing: “watch chris pratt and jennifer lawrence be a thing.”
Chris and Anna’s joint statement regarding their separation made no reference to any third party being behind the split.
They said: “We are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried 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. We still love each other and will always cherish our time together.”
And while there appears to be no basis for trolls accusing J Law of being a factor in the break up, the suggestion that the actress had embarked on an affair with Chris as they filmed Passengers was already vehemently denied last year.
Anna spoke to Fox News about the rumours – admitting they had left her feeling ‘insecure’ and said she would often believe gossip about other A List stars when it was reported.
“This has been blindsiding to us. We have an incredible relationship. [But] it has been weirdly stinging,” Anna said last December.
“I have always kind of believed that part of the rumours of celebrity couples were sort of true because they had never been a part of my life.
“I thought ‘Maybe there is a kernel of truth to that.’”
Chris had previously mentioned he would take six months off work to spend time with his family after spending more than a year working on films back-to-back.
He told Parade magazine last September: “I’ve been on the road for 14 months – I did three movies back to back to back – so I’m taking six months off.”
“I’m taking Jack to Jack’s Beach – which is what we named the little stretch of beach on an island up on the San Juan Islands where we got a place,” he continued.
The actor hinted back in 2015 that his wife preferred him with more meat on his bones, telling reporters as Guardians of the Galaxy held it’s premiere: “[Anna] likes abs, but she likes her fat husband better, because she gets to feed him… She’s a feeder and she wants to keep me locked up in the bedroom all fat and eating Kentucky Fried Chicken.”
In September 2016, Chris hinted that his strict muscle-building diet may have impacted his home life – explaining that he missed being fat.
