As we all know, Chris Pratt looks hot as HELL these days.
Men’s Health decided to get to the bottom of his fitness successes, and let me tell you it’s both touching and hilarious (and informative, if you like boring workout junk). I’m a huge fan of Chris Pratt, so I’m here to share the funnier side of the interview. Beware: you may fall in love with Chris Pratt after reading…
Fall in love, gain some weight: I put on weight because I’d fallen in love with a woman [actress Anna Faris] who loved to feed her man. We were drinking a lot of wine and having fun. I was her little Hansel out in the woods and she was fattening me up to put me in the fire. It was like Momma Bear and Papa Bear. She would eat a little bit, I would eat all of mine and the rest of hers.
On fattening up for your craft: I wanted to get fatter for the role [in Parks and Recreation]. I announced it to the whole cast, and then it became a bit of a game: how fat can I get and how fast. I would eat four burgers at every read. I became really fat and got up to almost 300lb. I had real health issues that were affecting me in a major way. It’s bad for your heart, your skin, your system, your spirit.
On actually eating healthy: When I was fat and unhappy, the only moments of respite I got were when I was eating. I felt great shovelling food down my neck and totally negative in between. Now mealtimes are sometimes lame, because that’s the way it can be when you’re eating healthily. But all the time between meals, I feel great.
On keeping a positive attitude: Your attitude is a choice. Real fun – there’s no choice in that. But at other times, when it feels like it’s down to you whether or not you enjoy yourself? I’m lucky in that it’s easier for me to get a kick at work than most people. Even so it’s important for me to behave like that. It’s how I was raised. Are you going to leave people feeling good? It’s about understanding that your attitude is contagious and asking yourself if it’s worth catching.
