Chris Pratt is on top of the world right now. The guy who started as a comic relief on “Parks and Recreation” is now one of the biggest most bankable movie stars in the world due to his simultaneous movie franchises “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Jurassic World.”
Ask anybody in Hollywood and they’ll tell you exactly how much of a generous, kind and fun-loving guy Chris Pratt is – if it’s any consolation, just watch “Parks & Rec” bloopers and you’ll see how his co-stars react to his hilarious improvisational jokes – magnifying their affection for him.
And now Chris Pratt is married to Katherine Schwarzenegger will warm your heart.
There’s nobody quite like actor superstar Chris Pratt in Hollywood.
His meteoric rise to superstardom is unlike anybody else; especially in the time he’s done it. There may not be a better “overnight success” cliché than Chris Pratt.
Pratt used to be a chubby funny guy on a hit television show called “Parks & Recreation” and he wasn’t even one of the main stars on the show. Despite the ensemble nature of the show, Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman, Aziz Ansari, Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe all had top billing over Pratt. When he got that role, he had just moved to Los Angeles after living in a van in Hawaii.
And then he went on an audition for “Guardians of the Galaxy.” Director James Gunn thought it was so hilarious that he cast him in the role despite Pratt’s weight. Gunn actually said that he would CGI him to make Pratt look skinnier. But six months later the movie went into production and Pratt was as ripped as anybody else in Hollywood.
Pratt stars in two franchises in “Jurassic World” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” and he effectively leap-frogged from a comedic chubby television funnyman to one of the biggest movie stars in the world.
In his private life, Pratt married Arnold Schwarzenegger’s daughter, Katherine, recently and he recently revealed meeting her at church.
Introducing the opening of the “Jurassic World The Ride,” at Universal Studios, Pratt said, “We met at church! There’s a lot of kismet … a lot of connections, but that is where we met.”
He added, “Katherine is at home right now, and she and [Pratt’s 6-year-old son] Jack are tie-dying shirts. Maybe they will make me one. I hope so!”
They seem like such a magnanimous couple that look truly happy in their lives. Well, wouldn’t you be too if you were a giant movie star or the daughter of a Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver?
Pratt thinks so too because he said, “It feels really nice. We just feel very blessed and very, very happy. I think having the stress of the [wedding] ceremony behind you is kinda nice, you know? But, yeah, we’re in the honeymoon phase. It feels really good and we just feel really happy.”
It couldn’t have happened to a better couple and the fact they are devout Christians, to boot, should warm your heart.
