When Chris Pratt talks the world seems to listen. His humility is such a beautiful breathe of fresh air and his infectious charisma only makes him more endearing.
It’d be easy to assume Mr. Pratt was just another vacuous Hollywood celeb who is only consumed with their own needs and desires, but the more Chris speaks his honest mind, the more his genuine humanity shines through.
He was recently honored by the entertainment industry with his very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. During his speech he choked back tears as he talked about his faith and how much of a gift from God the people in his life are!
And with all eyes on him, Chris Pratt turned the attention to Someone else.
“I’m a man of faith and I believe that God works in mysterious ways and gives us signs and gifts in life and those gifts oftentimes come in the form of people..[his Mother] gave absolutely everything she had to raise us, every thread, every fiber of her being,” he stressed. “And we weren’t – oftentimes we weren’t cash-rich, but we were never love-poor.”
Then he saved a special tribute for his wife, Anna Farris and their son, Jack.
“I want to thank my wife who — Anna, please, I love you. You’ve given me so much. You gave me the greatest star in the galaxy in my little boy. I love him and I love you.”
“We have bonded to make this molecule that is more important to me than air or water and without it, none of this means anything to me. And with every challenge, every day, week, month, decade, we become more and more bonded. You make me laugh like nobody else. You’re very caring and thank you for your trust and for your sacrifice and for your dedication and your heart. I will do my best to protect it and, in return, I’ll give you all of those things as well. You have my heart and my dedication, my trust. So yeah, without you, none of this would be – mean anything.”
These are exactly the reasons why Chris Pratt is not your typical superhero. He’s an incredible husband and an amazing father. Chris Pratt, America needs more men like you, thank you for shining your light and holding fast to your character.
