It's hard to believe but there was a time when Chris Pratt was only sort of famous. On the eve of seeing the sequel to one of the films that made him really famous, the actor is reflecting on what a wild ride it has been. Of course, this is Chris Pratt we're talking about, so the guy doesn't really take it that seriously. We're not surprised that being a famous movie superhero is life changing, but we had no idea it created such an entourage.
So, if you're in the market for a baby, Chris Pratt says he's got lots of extra ones. There's probably somebody else in the actor's crew who handles all the babies he's given. While Pratt is obviously being funny in his post on Facebook, the humor likely comes from a very real place. The actor was known for his comedic work on Parks & Recreation but in very short order he was cast in both Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World and seemingly overnight he went from sitcom supporting player to blockbuster action hero. There's no way that his life hasn't changed in some major ways. He might actually own a Tesla. He probably doesn't own a tiger. Probably.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 coming out next month will act as a sort of anniversary as it was the first film that began Chris Pratt's rise to new levels of fame. The film was a major event on multiple levels. Not only did people believe that Chris Pratt could be an action star but a group of characters that weren't even particularly popular in the original comics became major players within Marvel's Cinematic Universe. Many are of the opinion that the original Guardians is the best thing Marvel has produced so far. We can only imagine what's going to happen to Chris Pratt if the sequel is equally as popular. How could things possibly get better than this:
It's clear that becoming part of the Marvel machine is a life changing experience. We can only hope that all of the fame hasn't gone to Chris Pratt's head and that the quality of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 doesn't suffer because Pratt was too busy playing catch with Papa John. The Guardians will save the galaxy again beginning May 5.
