You know what I miss? Chris Pratt's "What's My Snack" videos on Instagram. No joke, it's one of the main reasons I'm excited for Jurassic World 3. But we don't have to wait for dino-time to get more Pratt content on getting in shape. He revealed he's losing weight for his role in the new sci-fi thriller Ghost Draft with J.K. Simmons.
While working out -- and sweating A LOT -- Chris Pratt revealed he's already lost 12 pounds. He also explained how he's going about his weight loss, and there's a lot of morning pee involved.
Drink a lot of water and pee three times before 10 a.m. It sounds like a superstitious ritual -- like you should turn counter-clockwise halfway through -- but I'm game. It's no secret water is good for you. Chris Pratt continued his workout posts by saying he'd be keeping fans in the loop through his process, hoping he'd also motivate others:
Chris Pratt is certainly not the only actor to go on a strict diet for a role. Joaquin Phoenix just reportedly dropped more than 50 pounds for Joker (which is apparently a masterpiece) and we know Christian Bale's body is now exhausted from gaining or losing so much weight all the time. Here's Pratt with more on his diet and exercise routine to get fit:
Very motivating! Of course, it's easier to lose weight when it's part of your job, and you have the time and money to spend working out and buying special food rather than sitting at a computer. Junk food is cheap. But water is cheap, too. Most of us don't have trainers or nutritionists to help us out, we just have to fit in workout times around busy schedules. But now we have Chris Pratt to help motivate us.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chris Pratt will be starring in Ghost Draft, which is set in a future where humanity is losing a war against aliens; to turn the tide, scientists draft soldiers from the past to fight the war. Deadline added that the plot follows a husband and father who is drafted to fight a future war in which the fate of humanity may rely on his ability to correct issues of the past.
Ghost Draft is meant to start shooting in September in Atlanta and Iceland, so this movie will film before Chris Pratt returns for whatever is next for Star-Lord. The Lego Batman Movie's Chris McKay is directing, with J.K. Simmons expected to play Pratt's father. GLOW star Betty Gilpin, Veep's Sam Richardson, and The Handmaid's Tale's Yvonne Strahovski were also said to be in talks for the sci-fi movie.
There's no release date yet for Ghost Draft, so stay tuned -- and keep checking Chris Pratt's Instagram Stories for more updates. Don't shame him if he loses a lot of weight for this, since you know how he hates that.
Gina grew up in Massachusetts and California in her own version of The Parent Trap. She went to three different middle schools, four high schools, and three universities -- including half a year in Perth, Western Australia. She currently lives in a small town in Maine, the kind Stephen King regularly sets terrible things in, so this may be the last you hear from her.
