Chris Pratt has got to be the sweetest star out there.
The Parks and Rec actor already has a history of rescuing animals, working with charities and even showing up at hospitals dressed as a superhero to visit sick kids. Now, ahead of his new movie Jurassic World, Pratt spoke to fans in Reddit’s “Ask Me Anything” section and used the opportunity to talk about how much he loves his wife, Anna Faris.
“Anna and I are meant to be together,” Pratt wrote in response to a fan who asked what brought the couple, who tied the knot in 2009, together. “Our relationship has made me believe in divine intervention and destiny, just as much as my crazy career and the way I fell into this life. She and I grew up 20 minutes away from each other but never met until we met in L.A. We both got our start in horror spoofs. We both did an animated movie for Phil Lord and Chris Miller. We both made our careers playing guileless nitwits for laughs. We both have parents that have suffered with [multiple sclerosis]. The similarities go on and on. Anna is a great wife. Very patient and understanding. Very supportive. So kind and genuine always. And she gave me a wonderful son and family of in-laws that I truly love.”
Pratt and Farris definitely had some common ground to strengthen their bond. They met on the set of their 2007 movie Take Me Home Tonight.
And in case Pratt’s gushing about his wife isn’t quite enough to make you say “aww,” the advice he offered to a fan looking to take up acting is both sweet and inspiring.
“Hey buddy, thanks!” Pratt wrote in response to the fan’s praise of his role in Guardians of the Galaxy. “Advice for being an actor is this: figure out whether or not you believe in yourself, and if you don’t, find a way to. Because even more than you want it, you must believe it. And learn about yourself. The rhythm of one’s spirit is just as important as what you look like or what you sound like. Who are you? What’s your voice? What are you dying to contribute?”
