Pratt grew up in Lake Stevens, Washington, USA. He was initially into wrestling and wanted to pursue a career in the sport though he failed. He entered college, but dropped out after a semester to work as a stripper and coupon salesman. Finally, he was homeless and lived on the beach.

It was the film director and actress Rae Dawn Chong who discovered Pratt and invited him to take part in the short film “Cursed Part 3” (2000). Afterwards, he had some small roles in the feature films “The Extreme Team” (2003) and “Strangers with Candy” (2005). Pratt starred alongside Danica Mckellar and David Keith in the television film “Path of Destruction” directed by Stephen Furst. Subsequently, he starred in the romantic comedy films “Bride Wars” (2009) directed by Gary Winick, “Deep in the Valley” (2009) written and directed by Christian Forte, “10 Years” (2011) directed by Jamie Linden and “The Five-Year Engagement” (2012) produced, co-written and directed by Nicholas Stoller. His first nomination was for Washington D.C. Area Film Critics Association Award for the Best Ensemble, which Pratt received for his role in the thriller “Zero Dark Thirty” directed by Kathryn Bigelow. However, this was followed by a failure which was a nomination for a Golden Raspberry Award for the Worst Screen Combo which the actor shared with Anna Faris, for the character of Doug created in the film “Movie 43”.

Nevertheless, the actor managed to recover and improve his acting. As a result, he was nominated for the Teen Choice Award for Choice Animated Movie: Voice for voicing Emmet Brickowski in “The Lego Movie”. More, he was nominated for 11 awards, two of which won (Detroit Film Critics Society Award for Best Ensemble and CinemaCon Award for Breakthrough Performer of the Year) for his lead role in the superhero film “Guardians of the Galaxy” (2014) directed by James Gun. Currently, he is working on the upcoming films “Jurassic World” and “The Magnificent Seven” which, it is believed, will increase his net worth, too.

In addition to this, Chris Pratt increased his net worth while acting in the main cast of the television series “Everwood” (2002 – 2006) and “Parks and Recreation” (2009 – 2015). More, he has appeared in episodes of other series “The Huntress” (2001), “The O.C” (2007 – 2008) and others.

In his personal life, Chris Pratt was in a long term relationship with actress Anna Faris and married her in 2009. The couple has a son and reside in Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles California.

#Quote
1 I've eaten weird things through the course of my life. I've eaten wild game, I've eaten possum - possum's no good.
2 I like to do 'Garfield Mondays': lasagna and napping in a box.
3 Television is such an evolving medium.
4 I went from 220 pounds that I cut down for Moneyball (2011) to almost 270-280 pounds for 10 Years (2011).
5 To go to the Oscars for Moneyball (2011) - that was pretty amazing.
6 I lose my cell phone so much that I switch it every month or so, but Sony Ericsson is usually what I use.
7 You get to a point where you have to start planning, when you cross that line where you have enough value to get someone's movie made if you attach yourself to it, you have to be very thoughtful and have to plan.
8 A friend bought me a plane ticket to Hawaii, which is where I got discovered and became an actor, so I guess a friend bought me a winning lottery ticket.
9 When you're doing a TV show, it's not like you just shoot for six weeks and you're in an editing room with all of your footage. It's like a guitar or a car, you have to fine tune things. You stop doing what's not working, you work on what is working and you add things that do work.
10 Celebrity is intoxicating.
11 Who knew Rob Lowe was funny? On Parks and Recreation (2009), we've got some of the funniest comedy writers, some of the funniest comedians in the world working there. And if anything, we don't just effuse to one another and be like, 'Oh, Rob Lowe's really funny,' if he wasn't.
12 10 Years (2011) was probably - I might say "10 Years" was my favorite filming experience of anything I ever worked on. It was totally different from Moneyball (2011), in that it was a small budget, independent movie. It had a giant ensemble of actors, all of whom were basically working for free.
13 I'd love to work with Steve Martin. I'd love to work with Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd.
14 My favorite animal to hunt is probably elk. There's nothing like the sound of a bugling bull splitting the cold air at first light. And that smell is unmistakable. Once you experience their musk in the wild there's no going back! A close second would be a varmint hunt.
15 I don't have any delusions. I don't think I would make it through Navy SEAL training.
16 I'm still fighting really hard to get any role I get. If it's comedy, I go for the laughs. And if it's drama, I try to tell the truth, and try to play the real stakes of whatever scenario the character's in.
17 To go to the Oscars for Moneyball (2011) - that was pretty amazing. And to be able to go work with Kathryn Bigelow - that's going to be pretty sweet. Hopefully I don't have to go back to being a waiter. That's still my main goal.
18 I was an athlete growing up and I miss that. I miss hanging out with dudes and making raunchy jokes and telling stories, trading details, you know? There's something I really miss about that.
19 When you're working with film, you can only shoot one angle at a time, and then everything has to stop, and you re-light it and shoot everything else from the opposite side, so it's really important that you stick exactly to what's written.
20 My first in, my first break, was I met a director and got to talking with her, and she happened to be casting this movie that she had written. That was ten years ago. That got me to Hollywood. I got paid $700 bucks.
21 The American audience has really opened up to women being A.) funny and B.) kinda crude. Bridesmaids (2011) is R-rated, and I think it was a major coup for women to have an R-rated comedy that did really well. Same as Bad Teacher (2011).
22 If one day someone came up to me and was like, 'Look, you're never going to act again,' I don't know what I would do.
23 Television is such an evolving medium. When you're doing a TV show, it's not like you just shoot for six weeks and you're in an editing room with all of your footage. It's like a guitar or a car, you have to fine tune things. You stop doing what's not working, you work on what is working and you add things that do work.
24 Some people fast, some people go on a cruise or visit a day spa. I get out in the woods with a rifle or a bow. That's my release.
25 People have told me I look like Gordon Lightfoot.
26 I primarily have had my career in comedy, and that is something that I have never been too concerned about because I know there is really no room for vanity in comedy. Comedy comes from pain and it is a lot easier to empathize with somebody who is out of shape.
27 I was an athlete growing up. I was a wrestler, I played football, so I can take a fall. I actually wanted to be a stuntman when I was kid, so I would practice falling down the stairs. It's just something I like to do.
28 Most of the writers in TV are from L.A. or New York, and those are places where people are cynical and snarky. And they fly from L.A. to New York in an airplane over this vast, expansive land where people aren't snarky; they're a lot more like the Parks and Recreation (2009) characters.
29 You want to be with a girl who likes you for you. Just be yourself and forget all of the stuff you read in 'GQ' magazine.
30 I've always been a little soft. I like to eat.
31 I love Capote (2005) . Huge fan of Philip Seymour Hoffman; if he's not my all-time favorite actor, he's definitely in my top five. I just love him so much.
32 As long as I keep getting cast, I don't care if it's typecast.
33 You get to a point where you have to start planning, when you cross that line where you have enough value to get someone's movie made if you attach yourself to it, you have to be very thoughtful and have to plan. When you're starting out, you're willing to do anything.
34 I married way out of my pay grade. I have no idea how that happened.
35 Both The O.C. (2003) and Everwood (2002), there were people, on set, where you learned to stay away from them on a bad day.
36 With comedy, it's a combination of knowing the comedic beat was good - it made you laugh, it made people on the crew laugh. With drama, you do something deep and if your stuff was really effective, the ultimate result is silence. Silence is not necessarily... that would also be the result if you sucked.
37 There's nothing funnier than a giant, grown man rollerblading.
38 It's interesting - I always thought when I was doing more melodramatic stuff like 'Everwood' that the directors were constantly reeling me in and stopping me from being funny.
39 I have some weird habits. For instance, I love beets. Show me a salad bar and I will clean them out of their beets.
40 My favorite way to blow off steam is to sing obnoxiously loud in the shower.
41 The key is just to ignore the pain, because physical comedy only works if you see someone get hurt and they aren't actually hurt. If someone gets hit in the face with a bat, falls down, and gets back up, it's funny. If they stay down and their jaw is wired shut in the next scene, it's really tragic and weird. You have to pretend it doesn't hurt.
42 You know, I just tend to grow my beard out for Parks and Recreation (2009). As an actor, it's always easier to shave or cut your hair for a role, but it's hard to put fake hair on or grow hair for a role. When you look at pictures of me, the longer my hair is, the longer my facial hair is, that's just the longer I haven't gotten a job.
43 I have a lot of plants and fish and a pet lizard and Venus flytraps. I have a whole ecosystem in my room, like a running waterfall and different lights and sensors set on digital timers.
44 Being in good physical shape is the best way to combat depression. You just have endorphins running around your body. It is the best anti-depressive that there is.
45 I know this may come as a shock to most of you, but I've decided to quit acting. I will not be auditioning for anything anymore, and if I get offered something like a role in a movie or a commercial or something, I will graciously turn it down. It's been great, but its just not for me anymore.
46 Just be yourself and forget all of the stuff you read in 'GQ' magazine.
47 Just be comfortable with who you are.
48 The only way physical comedy works is if you don't see it coming. And the harder the fall, the funnier it is. You have to really take some shots, and I've walked away with some bumps and bruises.
49 I have a pet lizard named Puff, five goldfish - named Pinky, Brain, Jowels, Pearl and Sandy, an oscar fish named Chef, two pacus, an albino African frog named Whitey, a bonsai tree, four Venus flytraps, a fruit fly farm and sea monkeys.

51 [on dating Everwood (2002) co-star Emily VanCamp] Obviously, they can never tell you not to date anybody on set. But it's always looked at as being a bit, "You should be a little apprehensive about getting involved with somebody that you work with." But we weren't apprehensive at all. We just said, "Fuck it. Let's just go for it, because it's important to us." But, that being said, other people may have had doubts or suspicions about us being able to last and this and that. Basically, once we get on set, we really just kind of became our characters and left our relationship behind. We would sneak a kiss here and there, but we would try and stay as professional as possible so no one would get uncomfortable. We certainly would never bring any arguments to the set or anything like that.
52 [on dating Everwood (2002) co-star Emily VanCamp] We've pretty much gotten used to the response of, "Eww, that's weird. That's creepy." The people who know us are happy, and probably expected it to happen eventually. But yeah, every once in a while we get that one person that's like, "That's really creepy. You just kissed your sister." We thought it was weird for six months, but it had more to do with just trying to hide our relationship from the set. I don't know why, and looking back on it, it was foolish. But we were trying to stay secretive and didn't want it to get out there. It never really weirded us out that we played brother and sister, because, you know, it's all fiction.
