The pair are currently working out the fine points of their divorce, which they announced over a year ago, and new documents obtained by TMZ suggest that they’re agreeing to live close by each other until Jack has reached sixth grade (11 or 12 years old). As Jack is currently six, that’s at least half a decade.
The documents also indicate that three months’ notice in writing must be given “if for any reason one of them needed to move further apart”, and that they also have to give 30 days’ notice if either of them wants to take Jack out of the country.
Faris posted a snap on Tuesday night that was criticised for her looking too thin.
Anna Faris has become the latest female celeb to walk away from Instagram, deleting her account on the social media site after being slammed by body-shaming trolls for being too thin.
The 41 year old star of ‘Mom’ had posted an image on the site before appearing on ‘The Talk’ on Tuesday night (October 2nd), which featured Faris gripping a trashcan while wearing a long black shirt, knee-high boots and nude bike shorts, captured by her podcast assistant Michael Sherman.
“Having pre-show jitters - so glad Michael Sherman captured it - also I eventually decided to put on pants,” she had written as a caption.

The showbiz couple split after eight years last August
Super showbiz couple Anna Faris and Chris Pratt broke hearts all over the world when they announced the end of their eight-year marriage at the end of last year. Now the famously down to earth couple have put themselves back into the loveable limelight by admitting: divorce sucks.
Anna Faris and Chris Pratt went their separate ways last year
The couple separated in August (17) and identical divorce papers were filed in December, with both stars citing irreconcilable differences.
Faris has been spotted with rumoured new flame, Michael Barrett, on a number of occasions in the last month.
After they announced their sudden split just over two months ago, Hollywood A-lister Chris Pratt is reportedly “heartbroken” at the recent reports of romance between his ex-wife Anna Faris and cinematographer Michael Barrett that have been in the news.
Earlier this week, TMZ reported that Faris, 40, and her Overboard re-boot cinematographer Barrett, 47, were spotted enjoying each other’s company at a Malibu restaurant.
Given that he and Faris, one of the most popular celeb couples going, had announced their split back in early August this year, despite sharing a 5 year old son named Jack, Pratt is having a hard time adjusting to the situation and is upset that Faris seems to have moved on so quickly.
The couple broke hearts with their shock separation earlier this month
Fans of showbiz were left wondering if love really existed when actors Anna Faris and Chris Pratt announced their separation a few weeks ago. The couple - who share son, Jack, together - have kept a relatively low profile since their divorce was made public but in a recent podcast, 40-year-old Anna shed some light on what may have been the reasons for the shock split.
Hollywood's popular couple are no longer together
Speaking from her own experience about "relationship dealbreakers", the actress revealed she'd felt like she'd "made mistakes" in her second marriage.

However, TV host Patti Stanger raised hopes for heartbroken fans on Thursday night when she sat down for a Facebook Live interview with Entertainment Tonight, saying that Pratt hadn’t moved out of the family home because they were having a last-ditch attempt to save the marriage.

There's no reason why this animated comedy adventure needed to be this pointless. Solidly entertaining movies have been made using far less as source material (see The Lego Movie). But while there are some hilarious verbal and visual gags peppered throughout this movie, it all hinges on a script that's painfully obvious and animation that simply isn't inventive enough to hold the attention without a decent story and stronger characters.
It's set in Textopolis, an app inside the smartphone of the teen Alex (Jake T. Austin). The central character is Gene (T.J. Miller), who has far too many expressions for a meh emoji. His parents (Jennifer Coolidge and Steven Wright) worry that he has some sort of defect. Threatened by the cruel senior emoji Smiler (Maya Rudolph), Gene and his pal Hi-5 (James Cordon) sneak out of the app in search of the hacker Jailbreak (Anna Faris), who can help reprogramme him if they can make it to the cloud. But Smiler sends a team of killer bots in hot pursuit.
Yes, the plot is cursory at best, and essentially exists only so the film can namecheck carefully placed apps in a series of sponsored, rather pointless extended set pieces. This leaves the movie feeling like a low-rent variation on Wreck-It Ralph, although only a few of these sequences have any visual interest. The Candy Crush world is at least a colourful alternative to the dull digital look of most of most of the movie. And the lack of imagination shows in the depiction of music streaming as a stream and a firewall as a wall of fire. There's also a strange rush to violence in almost every sequence, as the bots continually try to delete our heroes.

We use Emojis in text messages and social media everyday, but have you ever thought about what these images get up to when you put away your iPhone? When a high school boy goes to send his crush a 'Meh' emoji, it turns into something quite different. To the disappointment of his parents, Gene has never been quite as apathetic as he's expected to be, so when he messes up his moment it causes quite the problem for everyone else. Now the boy thinks his phone is broken, and he's on the way to get it re-set. That's not looking good for the emojis who find themselves desperately trying to back-up their world in the Cloud before their whole world gets wiped out. Meanwhile, Gene is about to learn that having more than one expression may not be such a bad thing after all.
