Chris Pratt: 'I Never Stopped Believing In Success'


Chris Pratt

The 36-year-old actor first made a name for himself on television show Parks and Recreation, before achieving leading man status thanks to films such as Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World.

Chris took to his Instagram page in the early hours of Wednesday morning (27Jan16) to tease fans that the upcoming Guardians sequel is going to be incredible, while also revealing how proud he is of upcoming movie Passengers, in which he stars alongside Jennifer Lawrence.

Alongside a picture of what appeared to be his commute, Chris wrote: "It's 3:20am. I got picked up for work at 6:45am yesterday. I'm not good with math, especially after being up for approximately 61 hours but I think I've been up for over 77 hours. I did a table read for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 this morning and then shot all day on Passengers and just now wrapped some 144 hours later. Weirdly both films, which I'll be shooting back to back, are being shot in Atlanta at Pinewood studios. We have the best crew. Total rock stars busting their asses. And the stuff we're shooting. My God. I can't wait for you to see it. I go back in in about 8 hours to do more."

Chris Pratt's Game Plan


Chris Pratt

The American star has gone through a dramatic transformation over the years, shedding the portly figure he sported on TV show Parks and Recreation in favour of a beefier physique. Now the 36-year-old has taken his diet a step further with a detailed post on Instagram showing him in his kitchen surrounded by raw animal meat and plastic bags.

"Here I am vacuum packing some deer meat in the kitchen," he captioned the shot. "I grew up in the woods. Not literally. I mean, we had a house. I wasn't raised by coyotes. But I spent a lot of time in the woods. Hunting, fishing and being outdoors with my friends and family is how I spent my free time as a young'n (sic)."

He explained that the wild instinct in him will probably never change, though he's not quite ready to survive on a diet of only vegetables just yet. However eating meat he hunted himself is a good compromise, so he's stocked up his freezer with meat from a deer hunt in Texas.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Surpasses Jurassic World In All-time Box Office Chart


Chris Pratt Jj Abrams

The dinosaur epic, starring Chris Pratt, grossed a global total of $1.67 billion following its release last June (15), placing it behind James Cameron films Titanic and Avatar, which holds the top spot with $2.78 billion.

However, the latest Star Wars sequel, directed by J.J. Abrams, is quickly climbing up the all-time chart and has pushed Jurassic World into fourth place, thanks to another bumper box office haul.

The Force Awakens opened in China, its last big market, on Saturday (09Jan16), when it raked in a record $53 million (£35.3 million), making it the best Saturday or Sunday bow ever in the country, and helping to boost the blockbuster's international gross to $104.3 million (£69.5 million) for the weekend.

Now it's also dethroned Chris Pratt's dinosaur blockbuster for another honour as the fastest film to crack the $300 million barrier at the box office; Jurassic World managed the feat in an impressive eight days.

The ongoing popularity of Star Wars: The Force Awakens set a new Monday takings record this week (21Dec15), when it pulled in an additional $40.1 million (£26.7 million) in the U.S. and Canada, easily surpassing the $27.2 million (£17 million) Spider-Man 2 grossed over America's Independence Day holiday in 2004.

Kurt Russell: 'I Have No Idea What Guardians Of The Galaxy Is'


Kurt Russell Chris Pratt James Gunn

The Hollywood veteran confirms he has been approached by writer/director James Gunn to join the cast of the follow-up, but he will have a little homework to do over the holidays before deciding whether or not to sign on.

"I literally got a phone call two days ago about this," he tells the Wall Street Journal. "I've never seen Guardians of The Galaxy so I don't know anything about it. Many times I've heard, 'That's a really fun movie, a really good movie with great characters.'"

"I don't know it," Kurt continues. "So, I didn't realise that James Gunn had written and directed it, but we talked to each other on the phone. And I just had to be honest and say, 'Thank you for considering me, I have to read the script, and I have to watch the first movie because I can't bring anything for you right now. I've got nothing to offer here.'

Jennifer Lawrence Chris Pratt Carey Mulligan Anna Faris

Jennifer Lawrence has revealed that she had to get “really, really drunk” in order to marshal her nerves ahead of filming a sex scene with fellow Hollywood A-lister Chris Pratt, because he’s a married man. She explained that the scene, for their upcoming movie Passengers, is the “most vulnerable I’ve ever been.”

“I got really, really drunk,” she revealed in a new feature with The Hollywood Reporter, but that didn’t end up solving the problem. “That led to more anxiety when I got home because I was like, ‘What have I done? I don't know’.”

The Hunger Games star, 25, admits she was so inexperienced in preparing for the steamy scene, she decided to have a few drinks before the shoot - but the booze only made it worse.

"I had my first real sex scene a couple weeks ago (while shooting Passengers with Chris Pratt), and it was really bizarre," she says during a recent actresses round table discussion staged by The Hollywood Reporter. "It was really weird."

"I got really, really drunk. But then that led to more anxiety when I got home because I was like, 'What have I done? I don't know.'"

Feels good to be back in action on Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2!!! I can't even tell you how excited I am. Ok I'll try. I'm ecstatic. I'm bursting with joy. I'm overwhelmed by feelings of enthusiasm, joy, gratitude, conviviality, camaraderie, elation, exhilaration. I just used an online thesaurus for these words. I suggest trying that. That way instead of saying
#Popeye is a resident of Friday Harbor Marina and my new BFF. Planning to spend a lot of time with Popeye. I hope to feed her salmon guts for years to come. #IslandLife
It's 3:20am. I got picked up for work at 6:45am yesterday. I'm not good with math, especially after being up for approximately 61 hours but I think I've been up for over 77 hours.

My God. I can't wait for you to see it. I go back in in about 8 hours to do more. I am doing what I love. It doesn't feel like work. Even though it is. I'm having fun. I'm overcome with joy and gratitude. I felt like posting this to say to anyone out there chasing your dream... Fifteen years ago I felt the same passion I feel today, but I had very little opportunity. I had to hustle hard and go hungry. I had to  eat sardines and figure out how to get gas money. And I never had a plan B. I never stopped believing. Ever. Don't give up. Apply constant pressure for as long as it takes. It will break before you do. Go get it.
Nothing beats good friends and family.
Had the most amazing day at @seattlechildrens hospital. Got to meet a ton of great kids and parents. Also got to spend some time with one of my personal role models @dangerusswilson and his lovely lady Ciara. I am truly living the dream. Say a prayer for all those kids who don't get to be at home for Xmas. #merryxmas #HappyHolidays 
Psalm 37:3–4
Here I am vacuum packing some deer meat in the kitchen. 
I grew up in the woods. Not literally. I mean, we had a house. I wasn't raised by coyotes. But I spent a lot of time in the woods. Hunting, fishing and being outdoors with my friends and family is how I spent my free time as a young'n. That part of me will never change. I mean. I'm assuming. I don't know. Maybe it will. It hasn't yet. Maybe one day I'll wake up and be like,
Finished out the year in peace, on the water, fishing and crabbing. #IslandLife #2016 #FindYourHappyPlace
