Pratt made his first real public appearance since then at the 2017 Teen Choice Awards to accept his surfboard award for Choice Sci-Fi Movie Actor and made his first speech since the biggest breakup of 2017 too.
Even after announcing his legal separation from Faris, he seemed to be in good spirits and joked around during his acceptance speech. “Wow. Thank you! I love you too. Thank you!” he said. “What an honor and a privilege to be here at the Teen Choice Awards. Thank you, Millie, Maddie, Grace. Give it up for the gals.”
He continued, “When I came to Los Angeles, I came from Hawaii, and I had all of this blond hair and I was tan and I met an agent because I really wanted to be an actor and get an agent, and he said, ‘Wow. Bro you must surf?’ And I said ‘Yeah’ and that was the first of many lies I told to get where I am today. Thank you.”
Pratt was all smiles on stage and gave no indication that anything was wrong even though he attended only to accept his award and did not participate in the red carpet for the event. The one time he did get serious was during his final thank you for the award.
“I would not be here with the ease and grace I have in my heart without my Lord and savior, Jesus Christ,” he said.
What we would all give to be able to handle breakups with this much grace.
