I’m sure I can’t relate to what females go through in Hollywood. I’m sure I can’t. But, I do know what it feels like to eat emotionally, and…to be be sad and make yourself happy with food. And then to be almost immediately sad again and now ashamed and then to try to hide those feelings with more food. I know what that’s like. It’s a vicious cycle and it’s a very real thing. I know what it’s like to have body image issues, but I also know that if you just work hard and enlist the help of good coaches and be coachable, that you can actually change that
inaromanticalway asked: I was wondering how your fellow Parks and Rec cast members are reacting to your sudden career explosion.
Chris Pratt: I am about to cry. I have gotten the kindest emails and texts and calls from them and they are just a family to me. I love everybody on that cast and in that whole gang so much. And everybody on that cast has been nothing but supportive. One of the reasons why I think many people love our show - and certainly why I love our show - is that there is just no cynicism in that group. It’s just purely people who are all very happy for me. They send me the kindest messages and I feel very, very loved and supported.
I thought it was important to make sure y’all had access to the actual video of Chris Pratt braiding hair because it’s pretty important. You’re welcome.
auroramachine asked: Mr. Chris Pratt, you are the 3rd Chris that Marvel has collected so far. Do you think there is something special in your name or it’s just Marvel has a Chris fetish?
Chris Pratt: There’s definitely something special about my name. I’m joining pretty amazing company. Both of those guys are really incredible. I haven’t had a chance to meet Hemsworth yet, but Chris Evans… when I saw him, he literally ran across the room, gave me a huge bear hug, lifted me up, and was like, “Dude, you are going to love this!” It was like my brother congratulating me for like making the team. It was pretty cool. We bro’d out. There was a lot of love there… He’s a great guy. The point is, there’s something special about my name. You want your son to be successful? Name him Chris.
