On June 21, 1979, Chris Pratt was born in Virginia, Minnesota. He is an American actor. He is the Pratt family’s youngest kid and the youngest child of Kathleen and Daniel. When he was seven years old, his family uprooted and moved to Lake Stevens, Washington.
After graduating from Lake Stevens High School, where he was a part of the school’s wrestling team and finished fifth in the state tournament, he went on to pursue a career in the military. When asked by his wrestling coach what he intended to do with his life, Pratt responded, “I don’t know, but I know I’ll be famous and I know I’ll earn a shitton of money.” Pratt has since gone on to become a successful actor. In 1997, he received his diploma from high school.
Pratt signed up for classes at the local community college but left after only one semester. He made a living as a dancer and a discount ticket seller before he found himself without a home in Maui, Hawaii. He slept in a tent on the beach in addition to a van. During his time on Maui, Pratt served as a missionary worker for the Christian organization Jews for Jesus. While he was working at a restaurant in Hawaii that specialized in seafood, he was “discovered.”
During his time in Maui, Pratt worked as a waiter at the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company restaurant. Rae Dawn Chong, who is both an actress and a director, “found” him and then cast him in her first directorial effort, a short horror film titled “Cursed Part 3.” Everwood was Pratt’s first regular acting gig, and it was on a series that was broadcast on the WB.
Following the conclusion of production on that show, Pratt became a cast member of “The O.C.” during the fourth season of the show’s run. Pratt has had roles in a variety of films and television shows, some of which include “Strangers with Candy,” “Moneyball,” “The Five-Year Engagement,” and “Zero Dark Thirty,” to name just a few of his many credits.
The role that Pratt played in “Parks and Recreation” brought him the most fame. The part of Andy Dwyer, which he played, had been written for him as a cameo appearance at first. However, the producers of the show thought so highly of him that they decided to make him a series regular. Between 2009 and 2015, “Parks and Recreation” aired for a total of seven seasons. The Critics’ Choice Television Awards considered Pratt to be a candidate for the award for “Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.”
After Pratt began his roles in “Guardians of the Galaxy” in 2014 and “Jurassic World” in 2015, he became widely recognized as one of Hollywood’s most bankable actors. After everything was said and done, the movies grossed more than $700.0 million and $160.0 million respectively at the worldwide box office.
In addition, he has had starring roles in a number of films, including as “The Magnificent Seven,” “Passengers,” “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” “Avengers: Infinity War,” and “Avengers: Endgame.”
In addition to making his directorial debut with the military science fiction war movie The Tomorrow War, he will also star in the movie as one of the key characters.
On the set of “Take Me Home Tonight” in 2007, Chris Pratt and Anna Faris were introduced to one another. In the latter part of 2008, they became engaged. They tied the knot on July 9th, 2009, in the island of Bali. The wedding was a spontaneous decision. After going to the wedding of a mutual acquaintance, they decided to wed on the spot. In August of 2012, they welcomed their son Jack nine weeks before his due date. In 2017, Pratt and Faris announced their separation, and they divorced the following year in 2018.
In the middle of 2018, Pratt went out on a date with Katherine Schwarzenegger, which was arranged by her mother, Maria Shriver. The ceremony took place in Montecito, California, in the month of June 2019. They chose to spend their honeymoon on the island of Lanai in Hawaii. The couple celebrated the birth of their first child together in August of 2020, a daughter who they named Lyla Maria Schwarzenegger Pratt.
