Thought you knew everything there is to know about Chris Pratt? Think again.
Yesterday (April 24), the actor took to Reddit for a fun Q&A about his role in "Jurassic World," his marriage with Anna Faris, and more. Though he kicked it off by admitting he was "still half-drunk," Pratt offered up a ton of interesting and revelatory factoids about himself. Here are the seven most important things we learned:
He predicted his role in "Jurassic World" in a short video extra on the Season 2 DVD of "Parks and Recreation."
This clip of Pratt pretending to hear from Stephen Spielberg about a role in a "Jurassic Park" sequel was released way back in 2010. "I never believed I would work with Steven Spielberg on a Jurassic Park sequel," Pratt wrote. "It was a joke at the time both literally and figuratively." Looks like his dream came true!
He's basically the same person as his "Guardians of the Galaxy" character, Peter Quill.Giphy
Turns out Pratt relates a whole lot to Star-Lord. "Quill and I are basically the same person," he wrote. "We were born in the same year. We loved the same movies. The same music. If I were kidnapped at 10, taken to space and based my ideology on the pop culture of 1979-1989 I would be Peter Quill."
He loves "The Neverending Story," but he'll never watch it again.Giphy
When asked his favorite movie, Pratt had a tough time coming up with the answer. He threw out a few possibilities, including "First Blood," "Across the Universe," and "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," before finally settling on the '80s classic "The Neverending Story." "Although I'm sure it doesn't hold up but I'll never know cause I'll never watch it again cause I hate when movies that I loved as a kid don't hold up," he said. Same, Chris, same.
Anna Faris is his soulmate and he feels like he was destined to be with her.Tumblr
"Anna and I are meant to be together," he said of his wife, who apparently grew up 20 minutes away from him, though they didn't meet until they both moved to Los Angeles. "Our relationship has made me believe in divine intervention and destiny." Aww.
Nick Offerman sends him pictures of his poop.Tumblr
One Redditor asked about the "Parks" actors' infamous bromance...and Pratt told us all about his former costar's weird poop pics. "He takes magnificent craps and sends them to me sometimes," he said. "And I like that very much." TMI much?!
He wanted to do this AMA partly because a picture of his abs made the front page of Reddit.Giphy
As an April Fool's Day prank, one Redditor started the rumor that Pratt would do an AMA if a photo of his abs made it to the front page of the website. The abs got voted to the front (naturally), and when Pratt heard about it, he figured it was time to finally say "hi" to Reddit.
His favorite dinosaur is the velociraptor.Giphy
"They are pack hunters and super cool," he wrote. "But also I love the Mosasaur. That's the water dinosaur thing from the trailer that is SO FUCKING BADASS! Funny story, before I got 'Jurassic Park,' I gave James Gunn a wrap gift of an authentic Mosasaur Jawbone Fossil. So basically I can control the future." WOAH. Mind blown.
His advice for aspiring actors? Believe in yourself.Giphy
Pratt had some touching advice for aspiring actors. "Figure out whether or not you believe in yourself, and if you don't, find a way to," he wrote. "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."
