How did Chris Pratt lose weight?
Aside from his great contribution as an actor, one thing Chris has been known for is his ever-changing physique. We first saw him as the bulky 220-pound Bright Abbott in the Everwood TV series.
He then appeared as Brett, an almost 300-pound character in the film Delivery Man (with Vince Vaughn). Perhaps Chris’ most well-known work before joining the MCU is in Parks and Recreation, where he played the lovable Andy Dwyer for six years.
It’s quite interesting to see the evolution of his weight according to the roles he chose to play. One time, he attributed his weight gain to his then-partner, Anna Faris’ cooking. Chris shares how he could devour 4 cheeseburgers in one day. Consuming massive amounts of food, specifically junk food, may provide instant happiness, but Chris says it affects you negatively in all aspects afterward.
He considers trimming down as the most difficult task in prepping for his Guardians of the Galaxy role as Peter Quill / Star-Lord. He started eating consciously and healthily but admits that eating became boring. He also started working out three to four hours per day to develop a slimmer figure for the role.

Some years later, the couple bore a son who was born prematurely, weighing 3 pounds and 12 ounces. Jack, as they named him, had a rough start in life having been born two months early and suffering a cerebral hemorrhage. Good thing, it never affected Jack developmentally except for a minor leg and eyesight problem.
After 9 years together, Chris Pratt and Anna Faris divorced amicably. They continue to be friends as they co-parent their son.
Then shortly after their divorced has been finalized, Chris found another love with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s daughter, Katherine. The new couple apparently met at a church and dated throughout 2018. Finally they headed to married bliss in 2019 in a ranch in Montecito,California.
