Chris Pratt: I will never complain about losing privacy due to stardom
Actor Chris Pratt says he has vowed that he will never complain about losing his privacy due to stardom. “I have sort of made a vow to myself that I will not be caught complaining about it (losing privacy). The reality of our life is slightly different now. We have to plan things that we didn’t had to plan before, spontaneity is out of the window,” Chris Pratt told IANS.
Chris is the main lead in two of the biggest Hollywood franchises — ‘Jurassic World’ and Disney’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ franchise. Chris was a homeless man before he rose to stardom. He used to live in a Scooby-Doo van and worked at a seafood restaurant in Hawaii in the late 1990s. It was at this restaurant that he was discovered by actor Rae Dawn Chong, who then gave him his first film ‘Cursed Part 3’ in 2000.
After taking the first step in the glamour world in 2000, Pratt went on to do TV shows like ‘The Huntress’, ‘The O.C.’ and ‘Everwood’ but rose to prominence as the chubby and easy-going character named Andy Dwyer in ‘Parks and Recreation’. His filmography includes projects like ‘Bride Wars’, ‘Moneyball’, ‘Zero Dark Thirty’, ‘The Magnificent Seven’ and ‘Passengers’.
Chris Pratt, who has been in the news due to his split from actor Anna Faris after eight years of marriage, says living under the spotlight is part and parcel of showbiz, and he decided to enter the field after going through all the pros and cons. Recalling some incidents, Pratt added, “We were in England for ‘Jurassic World’ and we wanted to see Windsor Castle…So we got together and were very excited that we drove in to see Windsor Castle but we didn’t realise that if we go to such a place there will be hundreds of people and that’s not going be comfortable.
“Like when we went to Paris, we went to a museum and I just couldn’t go into the museum and look at the paintings. I feel like one of the paintings. People see me and they come and I am like ‘I am here to see the painting’.” Pratt says he doesn’t want to be caught complaining about it.
