Actor Chris Pratt was spotted without his wedding ring in his first public appearance since announcing his split from actress Anna Faris after eight years of marriage.

The “Guardians of the Galaxy” star took his son Jack to their church here on Sunday. With a smile on his face, Pratt looked relaxed and happy as he walked into the building but was noticeably without his wedding ring, reports dailymail.co.uk.

Pratt wore jeans, T-shirt and sunglasses for the outing.

In a statement posted on Pratt’s Facebook page a week ago, the 38-year-old 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.”

The actor was seen in good spirits when he got on to the stage to accept the Choice Sci-Fi Movie Actor award for “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” here on Sunday.

He jokingly said he built his Hollywood career on lies.

“I came from Hawaii and I had all of this blond hair and I was tan and I met an agent because I really wanted to be an actor and get an agent… The agent asked, ‘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.”
