Childhood: Chris Pratt was born in Virginia, Minnesota, to Kathy and Michael Pratt. While his mother worked in a supermarket, his father originally worked in a gold mine, before moving on to housing development. Chris and his two older siblings, Cully and Angie, grew up in Lake Stevens, Washington where he practiced wrestling in high school. Pratt spent time working as a waiter in the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company on the Hawaiian Island of Maui, where he was scouted by Rae Dawn Chong who later cast him in his first film role.
Career: Chris Pratt's first role was in the horror film Cursed Part 3 in the year 2000. He then went on to have an appearance in an episode of The Huntress before getting the part of Bright Abbot in Everwood - a role he played from 2002 to 2006. Pratt then appeared in nine episodes of The O.C. in the following year. The transition from television to movies came steadily, as Pratt appeared in small roles in Wanted, Bride Wars, Jennifer's Body, Moneyball, Zero Dark Thirty and Her. His latest two starring roles in The Lego Movie and Guardians of the Galaxy have propelled him into the limelight, leading to his securing of the lead role in 2015's newest Jurassic Park film.
Personal life: On the 9th of July, 2009, Chris Pratt married Anna Faris after meeting her on the set for the movie Take me Home Tonight. Their son, Jack, was born on August 25th, 2012. In his spare time, Pratt enjoys hunting, fishing and fixing up old cars.
It's for the sake of their six year old son, Jack.
The pair are currently working out the fine points of their divorce, which they announced over a year ago, and new documents obtained by TMZ suggest that they’re agreeing to live close by each other until Jack has reached sixth grade (11 or 12 years old). As Jack is currently six, that’s at least half a decade.
The documents also indicate that three months’ notice in writing must be given “if for any reason one of them needed to move further apart”, and that they also have to give 30 days’ notice if either of them wants to take Jack out of the country.

The Guardians of the Galaxy lead star Chris Pratt has broken his silence following the dismissal of director of the movie series, James Gunn, by Disney over controversial old tweets, saying it is “not an easy time” for the cast and crew.
The 39 year old actor, who has helped Guardians of the Galaxy become one of Marvel and Disney Studios’ most successful creations of recent years, spoke to the Associated Press in a video interview this week, over a month after Gunn was fired as director after old tweets re-emerged of off-colour jokes about sexual assault and paedophilia.
“We all love James and he’s a good friend of ours, but we also really love playing the Guardians of the Galaxy,” Pratt said. “It’s a complicated situation for everybody.”

Faris has been spotted with rumoured new flame, Michael Barrett, on a number of occasions in the last month.
After they announced their sudden split just over two months ago, Hollywood A-lister Chris Pratt is reportedly “heartbroken” at the recent reports of romance between his ex-wife Anna Faris and cinematographer Michael Barrett that have been in the news.
Earlier this week, TMZ reported that Faris, 40, and her Overboard re-boot cinematographer Barrett, 47, were spotted enjoying each other’s company at a Malibu restaurant.
Given that he and Faris, one of the most popular celeb couples going, had announced their split back in early August this year, despite sharing a 5 year old son named Jack, Pratt is having a hard time adjusting to the situation and is upset that Faris seems to have moved on so quickly.
