In honor of today’s release of Guardians of the Galaxy, check out these four things you may not know about Men’s Fitness cover guy Chris Pratt.
In six months, Pratt made a total transformation by dropping 60 Pounds to go from Andy in Parks and Recreation to Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy.
He acts, he lifts weights… and he’s a musician! Pratt has been playing the guitar since he was 16, and calls Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash his musical heroes. Check out his songster skills from this deleted scene from Parks and Recreation:
Pratt played three varsity sports in high school: Football, track and wrestling. In his senior year he was named co-caption of the wresting team and finished 37-5. Soccer may not have been on this all-stars list of after school activities, but he sure makes bubble soccer look easy.
When Pratt starred in Delivery Man, he purposely got his weight up to 295 pounds, the heaviest he’d ever been.
