Chris Pratt, Anna Faris' son thinks acting is stupid
It doesn’t look like Chris Pratt and Anna Faris‘s son Jack will be following in his parents’ footsteps.
During an “Ask Me Anything” segment on Reddit, the 37-year-old actor admitted to fans that his little guy — who turned 4 in August — is less than impressed with his and his wife’s career choice.
“He knows i’m an actor,” Pratt wrote. “But he thinks it’s kind of stupid. haha! I suppose he’s right!!!” (Pratt had previously said that his son thought he was a firefighter, which led to the question.)
As the Q&A went on, Pratt said his favorite actress was his wife, who turned 40 last month. Faris was mentioned in another question, when a Reddit user wrote, “Anna Faris from Scary Movie(s) or Anna Faris from The House Bunny?”
“Wow. that’s a good question,” he responded. “like a kiss marry kill thing? trick question. I’d marry and kiss them all. And I did!!!”
He was also asked to compare his real-life self to a fan-favorite, his role of Andy Dwyer in NBC’s Parks and Recreation.
“Andy Dwyer is the personification of my comedic schtick,” he said. “I have been making people laugh with that clown for years and years. Way before I ever did Parks and Rec. He not all of me. But I AM all of him, if that makes any sense.”
As for what he misses most about the beloved show, Pratt said, “I miss the cast and crew. I miss my friends. I miss the commute. I miss the fact it was a steady gig, all comedy, and took me 7 minutes to get to work.”
He addressed his past weight gain, and said he started his career in L.A. in shape, but he was not given any opportunities to pursue improv or comedy.
“It wasn’t until I built a shlubby exterior, which stood in stark contrast to my inner confidence that people gave me room to play,” he said.
Pratt, who stars in the upcoming film Passengers, talked about what it was like working with Jennifer Lawrence.
“Jen is awesome,” he said of his latest costar. “She’s funny and cool. She’s refreshingly tough. She’s an amazing actor. It feels good to be around her.”
He even recalled one of his favorite moments starring alongside Lawrence.
“We were sitting in our chairs waiting for the next shot and a big set light bulb exploded nearby and she screamed. high pitched. very feminine,” he said.
“Then she immediately looked over at me and said, ‘Jesus Chris! You scream like a woman! Did everyone just hear Chris?’ and for the rest of the shoot i couldn’t convince anyone it wasn’t me. I just had to own it.”
Passengers hits theaters on Dec. 21.
