Chris Pratt on Anna Farris’ Emmy appearance: she ‘did an amazing job’

I’m living proof that just because you are divorced that you have to hate each other. (If you could only read the joke-packed Facebook exchanges between my ex-husband and I, you would know I speak the truth.) And, even though they split up, Chris Pratt and Anna Farris don’t seem to have a mean thing to say about each other (for the moment, of course).

Anna made her first post-split appearance at Sunday night’s Emmy Awards. Although she didn’t walk the red carpet, she appeared on stage during the ceremony, presenting the award for Outstanding Variety Special with her Mom co-star, the amazing Allison Janney. Anna wore a purple hued gown with a bedazzled bodice by Marc Jacobs. My esteemed colleague Kaiser accurately described it as “a boring dress that she’s not connected to at all…probably something her stylist picked out.” I have to agree, but I do like the color of the dress and I think her hair and makeup look pretty good.

Chris, who claims he “wasn’t invited” to the Emmys, complimented his ex-wife’s look when he was approached by the paparazzi, telling TMZ “I know she did great. Anna did an amazing job, man. She rules. Her and Allison, they both looked great. Go watch ‘Mom’ on CBS.” I’ve tried watching Mom, and a plug, no matter how genuine, from Chris proves that he must still love her in some capacity.

Allison also shared praise for her co-star on the Emmy red carpet, telling Entertainment Tonight, “She’s fantastic.” She went on to add, “You know, life things happen to all of us, but she comes to work, she’s a professional and we still have a great time together. We do it. It’s good to have things like work to hang on to when you’re going through a difficult time. It’s what gets us through — friends and laughter and work.”

Say what you will about Anna and Chris, but they are definitely keeping it classy (again, so far) about their relationship. Sometimes it just doesn’t work out, and that seems to be the case here. And, Allison Janney rules.

    That show makes me so sad because prior to its existence I thought Allison Janney could read me the phone book and I would love it. That show proved me wrong.

    • Alix says:

      Yep! It’s such a weird show — the tone seems to bounce all over the place.

      “She looked great” — high praise indeed.

    • lucy2 says:

      I will watch Allison in anything and everything, but that show. I couldn’t get into it either. And I don’t care for Anna as an actress.

  2. Seraphina says:

    I really liked these two together as a couple. I read they were getting counseling??? Maybe it will work, BUT both need to be invested in making it work and unfortunately the odds are always 50/50.

    I agree with you Corey, I love the color and the dress.

    B.S tohim not getting invited. He’s part of a huge franchise (GotG) and an alum of a much loved tv series (P&R). Something is fishy about their split. Maybe I’m falling into a patriarchal/sexist mindset but it seems like Chris is the one acting like everything is fine and mutual and Anna is just trying to keep a brave face, play along and maybe hope he’ll come back if she does. Just the way she’s talked about her marriage, she seemed like she needed him more than he needed her. He seems very selfish and she seems very insecure. From personal experience, its not a great combo.

    • MostlyMegan says:

      She is rumoured (fairly loudly and from varied and solid sources) to be battling a long-term addiction problem, and that – and nothing else – contributed to the sad demise of their marriage.

      • MeowuiRose says:

        Oh really? That’s no good if true. Not 100% surprising since its Hollywood. I still think he had the emotional power in the relationship. That could have played a part in an addiction. Obviously I’m just speculating with no proof but still.

      • MostlyMegan says:

        Nope, her addiction issues were a factor in the breakdown of her previous marriage as well unfortunately

    • lucy2 says:

      There would be no reason to invite him, unless they asked him to present something, but he’s not doing TV work at the moment. I don’t think anyone else from P&R was there except for Aziz for his new show.

      There are a lot of rumors about her issues, but I hope she’s ok.

  4. Nicole says:

    Eh from the stories shot both of them they had their own messes behind the scenes. But I’m glad they aren’t bashing each other in public. It’s not necessary and they have a kid to think about

  5. wheneight says:

    Wow, she looks a billion times better without those severe bangs across her face. Take note, Taylor Swift.

  6. detritus says:

    Pink is a really good colour for her.
    I’m assuming he didn’t go because this is fresh and it would hurt her or both of them. Mature and thoughtful, if it’s true. They’ve both handled this admirably so far.

    • LadyT says:

      So admirably. There’s always dirty laundry that could be aired but they’ve chosen not to go there. Reflects very well on them and certainly is the best for their son.
      I loved her in the pink.

  7. MeowuiRose says:

    Just realized, she looks like an older Emma Stone in the top pic. Kinda crazy (though not surprising) how many celebrities look so similar. Hollywood has a “type” for sure.

  8. Parigo says:

    That color looks great on her, so much better than the dark one below.

    I think people are making way too much of this statement. He didn’t say anything exceptional, “they both looked great”. For his career and PR he doesn’t want to come off as a jerk.

  9. Anastasia says:

    I just need to say I miss the pudgier Chris Pratt. Andy Dwyer for life or longer.
