Pratt Of All Trades
Reportedly, Chris Pratt was surrounded by friends while growing up in Washington. He was referred to as “Mr. Popular” in high school, owing to his ability to fit into any social category. He was a standout athlete, but also found popularity with preppy types, and the ‘drama kids’.
While attending high school, Pratt found success in the football team, in track, and wrestling. After he left school, he relocated temporarily to Hawaii. In fact, it was a friend who bought him the ticket to travel there, further proving his likeability. While he lived in Hawaii, he traveled around with friends, mostly drifting from beach to beach.
When he fell into acting, it was almost by surprise. There was a chance meeting with a movie producer that earned him a role in their debut movie. From there, the only way was up for Chris Pratt. He rode high and far on his charm and winning personality, eventually coming to land some of the biggest roles in Hollywood.
Although his career effectively started in 2000, it wouldn’t be until 2013 that Pratt found true recognition. From 2009 onwards, Pratt assumed the role of Andy Dwyer, in a comedy series titled Parks and Recreation. This role was originally designated to be temporary, but Pratt – the fan-favorite – secured regular appearances.

While Parks and Recreation wrapped in 2015, reruns and the internet would keep the show famous for years to come. There were several memes that spawned as a result of the show’s writing and the actors’ talent. The most iconic of these directly feature Chris Pratt’s character.
Some of Chris Pratt’s oldest celebrity friends originate from his time on Parks and Recreation. For example, Rob Lowe. There was an article published in 2019 that discussed Chris Pratt’s final hours before he was married. Reportedly, he spent time with fellow Parks and Recreation actor Rob Lowe – among others – playing golf.
Chris Pratt’s new wife posted a charming picture of their wedding on Instagram shortly after. Katherine Schwarzenegger, daughter of the legendary Arnold Schwartzenegger, married Pratt in 2019. In one article, published shortly after, they labeled it, “The best day of our lives”.
Following his massive movie success in 2014, Pratt began making some powerful friendships. He appeared as a key character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, one of the most famous movie universes of all time. This universe played host to actors such as Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr, Samuel L Jackson, and Brie Larson.
His opening movie in the universe, Guardians of the Galaxy, grossed almost a billion dollars at the box office. Pratt had signed a multi-movie deal with Marvel, securing him a long future in the universe. He’d go on to make another two Guardians movies, and star in the epic finale episodes, Infinity War, and Endgame.
These roles enabled him to build close friendships with several actors, such as Bradley Cooper, and Dave Bautista. He appeared as a supporting character in The Magnificent Seven, alongside industry icons. These included Denzel Washington and Vincent D’Onofrio.
On the subject of relationships, Pratt has also had success with the ladies. He fell into a close friendship with colleague Anna Farris while on set together, in 2007. By 2009, the pair would be married, and just two years later, would have a child together.
However, the relationship turned sour as the years wore on, and they separated in 2017. Following their divorce in 2018, Pratt didn’t wait around. He formed a relationship with what would become his second wife, just months later. They too married, in the summer of 2019.
By 2020, Chris Pratt had become a decorated and celebrated actor. He’d starred in dozens of productions, and had picked up his fair share of awards. Of course, along the way, he’d also collected more than his fair share of close friends.
