Anna Faris was angered by the reaction on social media to her split from Chris Pratt.

The 41-year-old actress and Chris, 38, announced their shock split last year, and Anna has admitted that the over-the-top reaction from some of her fans quickly got on her nerves, saying they need to ''grow up''.

She explained: ''I had a little bit of a childish feeling like, 'Oh, come on, f***ing grow up,' like, a little anger.''

The Hollywood star - who has a five-year-old son called Jack with her estranged husband - admitted that she was partially to blame for the online reaction, having ''cultivated'' the perception that they were the perfect family.

Speaking on the Armchair Expert podcast with Dax Shepard, she shared: ''I do think, we obviously cultivated something [the idea of a perfect relationship], and it was rewarding for a while, like, 'Oh, people seem to think that we got all this s**t sorted, that's nice!'''

In fact, Anna revealed that she and Chris have even discussed the online reaction to their split.

The actress - who has starred in films such as 'Scary Movie' and 'Lost in Translation' - confessed: ''Chris and I did talk about, like, 'Oh boy ... [we're letting fans down]', and we got on the Twitter feed, 'Love is dead' and 'relationship goals...'''

Anna and Chris are currently in the midst of finalising their divorce.

But the blonde beauty is thrilled she's been able to maintain a healthy friendship with the hunky actor, which wasn't the case following her first marriage to Ben Indra.

She said: ''We had an unbelievable marriage, and we have a great friendship now, we love our son to death, and I'm really proud of that, because I'm not sure I did that well the first time.''
