Chris Pratt leaves ex-wife Anna Faris out of Mother’s Day post

Chris Pratt has once again given the internet a reason to pounce on him.

In the Guardians of the Galaxy star’s heartfelt Mother’s Day tribute on Sunday on Instagram, he praised his wife Katherine Schwarzenegger; Mom, Kathy; and mother-in-law Maria Shriver – and did not name his ex-wife Anna Faris, with whom he has one child.

“Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there” Pratt wrote in the caption. “Especially grateful for Katherine today. You are a wonderful partner. You have given me such a blessed life. Both of our daughters are very lucky to have you and you are Jack’s best stepmom.”

He continued, “And to my mother Kathy, you raised us with so much love, light and laughter – so grateful for you today and always.” And to Maria, the best Mama G, I am so lucky to have you as my mother-in-law have. And to all the other moms in my life, I’m so grateful for everything you do.”

The post, which has been “liked” more than 500,000 times, showed Schwarzenegger beaming next to her mother and Pratt smiling next to his own mother. While it wasn’t surprising that Faris wasn’t in the picture, fans were stunned that she wasn’t even mentioned by name.

“Wow,” one person commented. “I disparage your ex-wife. Be a better man and also mention her, the mother of your child. Even this football guy mentioned his two baby moms. I just watched the first two Guardians and I totally agree with you. Now I have to unfollow you. tsk tsk.”

This “football guy” was likely referring to former New England Patriots player Tom Brady, who actually mentioned his exes on Mother’s Day. However, not everyone is convinced that Pratt had to call Faris. (The two divorced in 2018 after nine years of marriage.)

“She never did a Father’s Day post about him even after they broke up,” read an Instagram comment. “Double standards and making him a villain out of nothing. If it’s your ex, you shouldn’t have to involve them in anything.”

Some felt Pratt’s mention of “all the other moms” was reference enough.

Pratt had previously received backlash for thanking Schwarzenegger for giving him a “beautiful, healthy daughter” — which some felt was an unwarranted shadow over his ex.

Faris revealed in her memoir that her son Jack was born with “severe cerebral hemorrhage” and at risk of “developmental disabilities.” per complex. Pratt told Men’s Health in 2022 that the backlash “really bothered him” and that he “cried about it.”

The actor was also criticized for his alleged membership of an anti-LGQBTQ church, which Pratt vehemently denied – with the help of some famous friends. As for his now-wife Schwarzenegger, recently said the New York Times The criticism of Pratt was “so far removed from reality”.

His contribution to Mother’s Day has nonetheless drawn difficult setback on social media.
