Hollywood star Chris Pratt has filed for divorce from actor Anna Faris.

The Guardians of the Galaxy star filed legal documents to end their eight-year marriage over the weekend citing irreconcilable differences, reported E! online.

Faris' response, which was filed simultaneously, reportedly mirrors her ex-husband's filing. She has also asked for joint custody and the right to receive child support.

The separation date is listed as July 13, a month prior to when they publicly announced they were separating.

"Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we're really disappointed," the couple said in a joint statement issued by Pratt on August 6.

The two met on the set of Take Me Home Tonight in 2007 and got engaged a year later before marrying in summer 2009.

Faris is currently dating cinematographer Michael Barrett. The two have been spending time together since September after working on the new film Overboard
