After announcing their split last week with Anna Faris, Chris Pratt made his first (well, technically second if you consider his Sunday church visit with son Jack) appearance, without his wedding ring. As the actor graced the Teen Choice Awards' stage, to accept the coveted surfboard, he showed no sign of sadness. The award was presented to him by Millie Bobby Brown, Maddie Ziegler and Grace VanderWaal. He took the award and ensured he kept his humour quotient on check as he said, "When I came to Los Angeles, I came from Hawaii and I had all of this blonde hair and I was tan and I met an agent because I really wanted to be an actor and get an agent and he said, 'Wow. Bro you must surf?' And I said 'Yeah' and that was the first of many lies I told to get where I am today. Thank you." He also thanked the young actors, "Wow. Thank you! I love you, too. Thank you!," he began. "What an honour and a privilege to be here at the Teen Choice Awards. Thank you, Millie, Maddie, Grace. Give it up for the gals."
On a serious note though, he thanked the lord for bestowing him with the honour, "I would not be here with the ease and grace I have in my heart without my lord and saviour, Jesus Christ." Of course, as his speech went on, paps couldn't get enough of capturing his ring finger, that lacked a gold band. It did hurt us to see him without his wedding ring at the event. As per a report on Entertainment Weekly, the actor didn't attend the red carpet event and went straight for the main function. While it was his official public appearance post divorce reports, earlier the same day, he attended church along with his four year old son Jack. US Weekly stated that the actor was spotted greeting a friend along with his son, at the church, without the wedding ring.

How heartbreaking is that! Pratt 38 and Faris 40, ended their eight year long marriage as they announced their split on August 7th this year. In a joint statement released by both of them, they said, "Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we're really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another," Pratt had posted on his Facebook page.
The duo met in 2007 on the sets of "Take Me Home Tonight". They got married on July 9, 2009, in Bali, Indonesia. Their son, Jack, now four, was born in August 2012. Stay tuned to this space for hot scoop and latest updates.
