Anna Faris congratulated Chris Pratt on his engagement to Katherine Schwarzenegger

As we learned yesterday, Chris Pratt is now engaged to Katherine Schwarzenegger. I called it months ago, although to be fair, I think everybody called it months ago? Katherine and Chris make perfect sense together and I truly think this marriage will last a long, long time. Infact, the only thing that annoys me is that Katherine and Chris both chose the same bad, blurry photo to announce their engagement on Instagram. I’m not saying everyone needs to have a super-posed, professionally-photographed engagement announcement. But this photo is just… blah. Katherine is very pretty, and I would have loved to see her simply smiling to camera and showing the ring.

As for the ring… we can see it a little bit in the IGs. It looks really big to me, but a source tells E! News that it’s five carats. Which is big, but not “Hollywood big.”

“The beautiful engagement ring Chris Pratt just used to propose to Katherine Schwarzenegger looks like a 5-carat cushion set in a Harry Winston-style micro pavé halo,” Andrew Brown, President, WP Diamonds, tells E! News. “Assuming it is a high color-clarity combination, it would probably retail for $150-175k.”

[From E! News]

I love a micro pavé halo, honestly. I have a cocktail ring with a micro pavé halo which is one of my favorite rings. While five carats is “Hollywood big,” it actually seems like a good choice for both of them, and Chris chose well. Do you think he picked it out himself, or did he have help?

Meanwhile, there were some questions about Anna Faris and what she thought and all of that. Yeah, I have my own theories about what happened between Anna and Chris, and I still believe that no matter what, they tried to make their marriage work and they still care about each other. I thought he was a true gentleman about everything in their divorce. Anna sounds fine about it?

Shortly after Chris Pratt shared the happy news on social media that he and Katherine Schwarzenegger had gotten engaged, Anna Faris shared that she was overjoyed by the news.

“I’m so happy for you both!!” Faris, 42, wrote on Instagram, commenting on the 39-year-old actor’s post. “Congratulations!”

[From People]

On one side, you have people who feel like Anna must be sad because her ex has moved on so thoroughly. On the other side, you have people who remember that Anna seemed like the one who wanted out of the marriage first, and that she and Chris actually still coparent responsibly and get along. Just my opinion: Chris was always going to be the ex who remarried first. One, he likes being married (and I don’t Anna likes it at this point, she wants her independence). Two, he wants more kids. It was always going to happen this way.

    I believe that she is fine with it. She started publicly dating before he did.

  2. WingKingdom says:

    My ex-husband has moved on very thoroughly and is happy in his new relationship. I (a) am not sad, because I didn’t want him any more and (b) appreciate that his newfound happiness makes him a better father to our kids. I bet Anna feels this way too.

    • LT says:


      Yes, this exactly. My ex got remarried and I felt a big sense of relief on his wedding day. If he’s happy, he’ll be a better dad to our children and I can move on with my life without guilt.

    • Nikki says:

      Wise words!

  3. SM says:

    Call me a sceptical bitch but whoever rushes to public congratulations, especially to someone who you are supposed to be in a regular contact, is more interested in the optics. But that is just me. I accept other people especially those in the public eye may think differently and Anna may be one of those people. On the other hand, what arou going to do when the announcement itself is so public. Anyway doesn’t look like there is any drama here.

    • Alissa says:

      I would bet that she also congratulated them privately, because I’m sure he let her know before posting it online. she probably commented publicly because she knew that if she didn’t it would be a thing.

    • YesImHere says:

      Over the years I have come to believe that once an individual decides to become a publicly known person (Hollywood, music, politician, etc) they pretty much have to commit to being all-in as a public figure. It really drives home the literal aspect of the phrase “public figure”. Because what @Alissa said is true: if celebs don’t make these kind of stupid, unsolicited announcements it will only rain down more problems on their lives. It’s become part of the territory in the age of internet and social media: certain things have to be shared publicly whether they are asked to or not.

    • Marlene says:

      What exactly is ‘rushing’ when it comes to commenting on a post on Instagram?

  4. Babadook says:

    No shade, but an engagement after 9 months seems super quick to me. I think I’d be less surprised if they were super young, madly in love and this was his first time around the block but I feel like he’s only been divorced about a year?

    • Alissa says:

      yeah, I’m happy for them butit seems like it was super fast, and really super fast after his divorce. I did hear rumors that they were split and separated long before they announced it though, so maybe it’s been longer. still, nine months is not particularly long but I guess whatever works.

    • Maria TR says:

      I met my husband when I was 35 and he was 42 and divorced with a small child. We got married within a year because we both wanted kids and the clock was ticking. I suspect that’s what’s happening here, especially given his faith.

    • Himmiefan says:

      Yeah, I think this is all for publicity. He either thinks he’s in love and in the back of his mind knows this is good for publicity, or this is an out and out contract marriage, which happen more frequently in Hollywood than people know. As for Anna, he supposedly cheated on her, so yeah, she probably wanted out. As for her response, what is she supposed to say?

  5. Kaz says:

    I don’t get people who think that you have date for 5 years before getting married. If you believe in Marriage and you don’t know that you want to at least potentially marry that person after 6 months then what are you doing with them?

    • Gigi La Moore says:


    • Mash says:

      right…. i got engaged after like 6months together from July 2017… and were getting married in July 2019. Its like man come one you know really early on

      • AMAyson1977 says:

        I agree. We got engaged at 27 and 32 after dating for just over a year, and got married a little less than a year after that–basically the length of time it took to book the facility we wanted and plan the wedding. Everyone is different, and I don’t think there is a “right” way, but I don’t think that 9 months is particularly speedy for a couple who are both firmly in “adult” territory (no 20 year-olds here!) and, due to their wealth and lifestyle, were probably able to spend a significant portion of that 9 months together, likely more than an “average” couple with 9-5 jobs.

    • The Rickest Rick says:

      I would be very uncomfortable getting married after only knowing someone for 6 months. In fact I could never, ever do that. I don’t feel I fully know someone at 6 months yet. But that is just me, I think there’s nothing wrong for those who are comfortable with that.
      Is it wrong that I think that? I’m not being sarcastic, I’m just wondering because maybe I should be able to tell at 6 months if I could marry someone? Am I doing it wrong?

      • Anna says:

        No, I’m the same way. I was with my now-husband for years before we got married. I feel like there’s so many situations that simply don’t come up in the first six months, so you don’t know how the two of you will handle it.

  6. cantgoogleme says:

    Am I the only one who did not see this coming?

    I legit thought it was a contract for publicity.

    • YesImHere says:

      I think it’s probably real, but I believe Chris is pulling strings big time to get his beloved more exposure. I cannot believe the amount of media attention that this nobody (KATHERINE) gets in the past year, but intensified in the past few months. Somebody posted a clip from a little over a year ago where she was on some morning chat show (for what I have no freakin’ clue) and was asked about her favorite of the Chris’s (or something) and she almost chose one, but then changed her mind and chose Chris Pratt, because she said he’d gotten “cute lately”. It’s hard for me to believe things like this are coincidences.

      • Originaltessa says:

        If Katherine Schwarzenegger is a nobody, who do you consider a somebody?

      • horseandhound says:

        Originaltessa, she’s just famous for being somebody’s grandniece and somebody’s daughter. I’m not impressed by that. but it does irritate me when people who aren’t celebrities are called ‘nobodys’.

      • YesImHere says:

        @originaltessa What is your true gripe, my use of the word “nobody” or my suggestion that Katherine (whose entire name you carefully typed out) doesn’t deserve the attention she’s getting, which is clearly based around her family (and romance) connections?

        @horseandhound I genuinely have no guilt at referring to someone as a nobody. People are called all sorts of cruel, offensive things in the comments sections of celebrity gossip blogs, things I would never type or speak about someone. I’m often shocked by the things I see in the comments fields, truly mean and ugly things. Nope, I have no qualms about using a word as innocuous as “nobody”.

      • Pandy says:

        Yeah, no issues with words like “nobody” … she is only famous for her parents and their connections. She is a nobody. A wannabe.

      • Originaltessa says:

        I really was curious who you’d consider a “somebody” befitting Chris freaking Pratt? It was a question. It’s not like she’s a Tiger Woods Denny’s waitress. She’s an educated girl from an esteemed family. He could do worse.

    • Krysha says:

      Same. Could *still* be a contract, just one that stipulated marriage, too. But I find many Hollywood relationships suspect, for that reason. Image is EVERYTHING to these people.

    • Himmiefan says:

      I think it is a contract for publicity.

      • Stacy Dresden says:

        Celebrities are too profoundly selfish to take a big step in their personal life like this just for publicity. Trying to hide sexuality is another issue altogether – I realize that was common at one point in time.

  7. Lucy2 says:

    I think she began dating someone quickly after they split up too, so I doubt she’s too sad over this.
    I don’t have many positive feelings about her or Chris anymore, but I will say they both seemed to handle their divorce and are co-parenting well.

    • Erinn says:

      I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a little twinge of sadness, even just for a moment, because I think that’s somewhat natural. Especially if you tried really hard to make things work and they just didn’t. I think there’s going to be a little bit of “what could have been different” thinking for a lot of people. That said – I really do think she’s probably pretty happy for them. It benefits everyone to have him in a stable, loving relationship – it’s best for him, best for their son. And knowing that he’s with someone who seems pretty solid, and who is at least somewhat used to public attention takes a lot of stress out of the situation when it comes to the child. So as long as the co-parenting keeps going well – and by all accounts it seems to be – then I think it’s a win for everyone.

      Honestly, I really don’t like the guy anymore (I do mourn for how much I laughed at his portrayal of Andy Dwyer) because of SO many things he’s done. But when it comes to their split he’s been pretty great – and he genuinely does seem to care for Anna at least enough to be respectful and a good co-parent to their son. And that’s better than what a lot of people can muster after a breakup.

      • elimaeby says:

        I agree with Erinn that there is likely at least a little melancholy in watching your ex move on. When my ex husband and I split, it was my decision to leave because the marriage was dead, and I knew we’d never regain the passion. We’re still friendly and I will always have love for him. When he started dating again, it did still hit me even though I was already dating my current SO. I’m sure he feels the same when he hears about us together. It may have been doubly weird for all of us because he moved on with his coworker I was friendly with and I started dating one of our mutual college friends.

        Feelings in a divorce and re-coupling are often messy. I think they’re both handling it with class and kindness, so good for them. I’ll never forgive them for all the pet dumping, though.

  8. Notyouraveragehousewife says:

    Doesn’t the Hillsong Cult strongly encourage rushing to the alter? Bieber/Baldwin for example. Now Chris is doing some crazy religious fasting for a month. I don’t know. Hillsong gives me super creepy vibes for some reason. It all seems so unhealthy and manipulative.

  9. PlayItAgain says:

    Isn’t his church one of those new age culty types? It’s rumored to rank right up there with Scientology with how they intimidate people. How is that going to fit with old school Kennedy Catholicism?

  10. Case says:

    I believe she’s fine and happy for them. They seem to have remained friends and have a good co-parenting situation by all accounts.

  11. me says:

    Personally, I believe she should have done this privately directly to the couple to be more respectful and discrete. I appreciate her sentiment but she should not be part of the discussion about her ex husbands engagement to a new woman and should have gracefully stepped back. Instead, she’s inserted herself into the public discussion. Shameless

    When it comes to social media, I feel congratulations replies on social media posts are typically a way for acquaintances and distant family/friends and strangers to share these sentiments. If you have a serious – real world relationship with that person, in person congratulations or via a phone call / personal text is a more proper response. On top of that, she is the ex-wife and should let them have their moment without getting involved.

    • Moco says:

      IG posts for celebrities are not for sharing information with distant friends, they are press releases. The press will write stories and every one will include that Chris divorced Anna since Anna is also celebrity, so she got it in front of it and commented. We know nothing, but I would 100% bet they privately told her and she privately responded before the post. She’s not being indiscreet or stepping in their moment.

      • Alissa says:

        I agree with Moco.

        If she wasn’t a celebrity, I doubt she would have commented. But this way the stories are about how everything is amicable, rather than her silence. For note, look at how people talked about Taylor Swift not saying anything about Karlie Kloss’ engagement and wedding. Silence can be a statement of its’ own when you’re a celebrity.

        My husband informed his ex-wife when we got engaged so that she didn’t hear it second hand from my stepson, and she did the same when she got engaged. It’s courtesy. I’m sure she didn’t find out along with the rest of the world.

  12. Grey says:

    I’m sure Ana is fine with it. Chris Pratt has proven himself to be an ignorant dumbfuck dimwit (and no, that’s not redundant). The more he opens his mouth the more stupid he shows himself to be.

    • Katie Keen says:

      I agree, I don’t think Anna cares. Seems like she had wanted out of that marriage for a while.
