Chris Pratt Praises Anna Faris After Split: She 'Looked Great' at Emmys 2017

No love lost! Chris Pratt had nothing but kind words for his estranged wife, Anna Faris, after she stepped out at the 2017 Emmy Awards on Sunday, September 17, to present an award with her Mom costar Allison Janney.

"I know she did great. Anna did an amazing job," the Guardians of the Galaxy actor, 38, told photographers while out and about in Los Angeles on Sunday evening. "She rules! She was great. Her and Allison [Janney], they both looked great."

Pratt even went so far as to promote Faris, 40, and Janney's sitcom, which kicks off its fifth season on November 2. "Go watch Mom on CBS!" he said.
The Emmys marked the Unqualified author's first public appearance since announcing her split from her husband of eight years in early August. She looked stunning in a purple Marc Jacobs halter dress and matching heels.

The Jurassic World actor, however, claimed he was not invited to the ceremony. "I didn't get an invitation," he told photographers with a laugh. "I haven't checked my mailbox lately."

The former couple met on the set of Take Me Home Tonight in 2007 and married in July 2009. They are the parents of son Jack, who turned 5 just a few weeks after Pratt and Faris announced their plans to legally separate. They have yet to officially file for divorce.

Still, Faris is staying in high spirits. "She's fantastic. She's a professional," Janney, 57, exclusively told IPRESSTV in August. "It's hard to do but she's coming to work with a smile on her face and knows her lines and is as professional as ever."

Keri Russell Speaks On Emmys 2017 Loss: I’m Always ‘Secretly Relieved’

Phew! Keri Russell was totally fine with not winning the Emmy award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series during the star-studded event in L.A. on Sunday, September 17. 

“It’s such a cool thing to be nominated and I’m always very secretly thankful I don’t have to speak publicly,” The Americans actress, 41, exclusively told Us Weekly after the show.

“Always secretly relieved. Always,” she added. “I just go, ‘Oh my God. Thank God.’” 

The win eventually went to Elisabeth Moss for her gritty role in Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale. The two were also up against Viola Davis (How to Get Away With Murder), Claire Foy (The Crown), Evan Rachel Wood (Westworld) and Robin Wright (House of Cards).

Russell, now happy that the categories were all announced, let her hair down for the rest of the night. She and her longtime partner, costar Matthew Rhys, hit up the Governors Ball together.

“Now you can have fun!” she told Us, holding up a beer. She was later spotted dancing with a group of friends to Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin.’”

The couple met on set of FX’s The Americans in 2013 and are parents of son Sam, 15 months.
