Last November, the "Guardians of the Galaxy" star took to Instagram to gush about his wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger. In chatting with Men's Health, he recalled, "I said something [on Instagram], like, 'Find someone who looks at you the way my wife looks at me.' And then I gave her some s*** in the thing and said, 'But I love you. I'm so thankful for my wife — she gave me a beautiful, healthy daughter.'"
Social media users unleashed, as many felt that Chris ignored the fact that he has a son, Jack, with ex-wife Anna Faris (Jack was born premature). Many of those people assumed the actor's message was also a dig at Anna.
Of the criticism, Chris said, "That is [messed] up. My son's gonna read that one day. He's 9. And it's etched in digital stone. It really f***** bothered me, dude. I cried about it."
Chris now shares daughters Layla, 1, and Eloise, 1 month, with Katherine.
The "Jurassic World" star said he was able to move past the controversy because Twitter backlash is not "real." But, he says, Jack "doesn't know that yet."
After Jack was born in 2012, the little one spent seven weeks in the NICU.
In a May 2021 interview with People magazine, Anna, who split with Chris in 2017, said, "The first years were filled with doctor's appointments, five surgeries, physical therapy, a lot of laughter. Jack was and is the most adorable cutest thing I could ever have imagined."
