'What a cool response.' Why Anna Faris' reaction to Chris Pratt's engagement is being praised.

Chris Pratt has announced his engagement to girlfriend Katherine Schwarzenegger just three months after his divorce from his wife of nine years, Anna Faris, was finalised.

And while no one would blame the actress for downing a whole bottle of wine/having a fit/throwing some shade right now – she’s chosen to go down the far more genial path.

On the Instagram post where the Guardians of the Galaxy actor announced his impending nuptials to “sweet Katherine,” Anna wrote a comment that’s been widely praised for its maturity.

“I’m so happy for you both!! Congratulations!” the 42-year-old wrote.

Whether she’s inwardly cursing his name or not, the actress’ ability to put on a publicly happy face was the subject of many positive comments.

“We don’t deserve you. You are so much better than so many of us,” wrote one fan on the same Instagram post.

“[Anna Faris] we love a supportive healthy family!!” gushed another.

“Classy!!! Putting family first, co-parenting & setting a good example of what it’s like to be a class act for y’all’s kids & and others!” added another follower.

“What a cool response!” one fan simply put.

Anna’s supportive comment set the tone for largely positive reactions from fans, with very few commenting on the time it took the Jurassic World star to move on.

Anna and Chris, 39, announced in August 2017 that after 10 years together, they had separated. During that time they welcomed son, Jack, who’s now six years old.

In June last year, Chris began dating author and daughter of action star Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, Katherine, 29.

When announcing their engagement, he said he was “thrilled” be getting married again, also mentioning his Christian faith.

“Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes! I’m thrilled to be marrying you. Proud to live boldly in faith with you. Here we go!”

Just a month ago he posted a sweet photo collage of his partner, who he called “Chief” for her birthday.

“Your smile lights up the room,” he gushed.

“I’ve cherished our time together. Thrilled God put you in my life. Thankful for the laughs, kisses, talks, hikes, love and care.”
