Anna Faris has admitted she and her ex-husband Chris Pratt ''work really hard'' to be supportive of each other in the wake of their split.

The Hollywood actors were married for eight years before calling time on their relationship in August 2017. They share joint custody of their 6-year-old son Jack.

Speaking on her Unqualified podcast, Faris opened up about co-parenting, saying: ''Chris and I work really hard 'cause we have Jack, that is sort of the long game idea and making sure Jack is really happy, which makes us really happy.

"We have sort of the luxury of circumstance. You know, we are both in other loving relationships ... but it is ... it's like how do you not in general sink into a place of bitterness?

''I do want to reiterate though, that I f***ing acknowledge, we all do, everyone acknowledges, that there is bitterness and pain with all breakups and that hopefully makes us all human.

"But the long game is just the worst being the bigger person. It just is. It f***ing sucks until, then what happens though, is that everyone's happy.''
