As if America needed another reason to love this talented husband and father, what I’m about to reveal could be the key to world peace.
He’s the man every guy wants to be and the man every woman wants to marry.
Here’s 8 reasons why America needs more men like Chris Pratt!
1. He’s An Outdoors Man…
A Minnesota native, Pratt is a hunting and fishing enthusiast. He’s not your typical Hollywood pretty boy that’s too scared to get rough and dirty with the wilderness. Pratt’s admitted to hunting deer, doves, elk, pheasants… but his prey of choice is coyotes!
“I do a lot of predator hunting, farm varmints, out in Wyoming,” Pratt explained. “Coyotes are assholes and they’ll eat your dog.”
He keeps doves in his freezer… skins and cooks his hunted treasures… all on his own.
I didn’t think men like this still existed in America.
Pratt is one of the few stars in Hollywood with outspoken views on supporting our right to bear arms. He’s known for his impressive collection of guns and has to keep most of them at his home in Washington because they aren’t legal where he lives in California.
2. He’s A Godly Man…
Unlike the liberal trend in Hollywood, Chris is unashamed to share his Christian faith. He discussed how he and his wife, actress Anna Faris, relied on their trust in the Lord when their son was in the intensive care unit for the first month of his life after being born nine weeks premature.
“We were scared for a long time. We prayed a lot,” Pratt said. “It restored my faith in God, not that it needed to be restored, but it really redefined it. The baby was so beautiful to us, and I look back at the photos of him and it must have been jarring for other people to come in and see him, but to us he was so beautiful and perfect.”
Even though doctors said their son, Jack, would live with disabilities due to the premature birth, God healed him in the NICU. Pratt also declared his Christian faith when he expressed how God sent him his lovely wife.
“Anna and I are meant to be together. Our relationship has made me believe in divine intervention and destiny,” he said.
Pratt is also very vocal about his Christian faith on his personal Facebook… a quality especially rare among celebrities. He frequently quotes Bible verses on his statuses and shares bits of his testimony. Here’s one of the touching Bible verses Pratt has recently shared on social media.
“Anyone who loves their brother and sister lives in the light, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble. But anyone who hates a brother or sister is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness. They do not know where they are going, because the darkness has blinded them.” 1 John 2:10-11.
It makes me SO happy to see this talented husband and father represent the Christian community in Hollywood so positively! His success reflects his Godly heart.
3. He’s a hard-working man…
Raised by a mother who worked in a Safeway supermarket and a father who worked in a gold mine, Chris Pratt knows the value of conservative work ethic. Despite his sudden stardom, Pratt isn’t letting his success get in the way of working hard to provide for his family.
“I need to work while the work is here,” he said in an interview with American Way. “I have my eyes on the prize. The big picture is my wife and my son and I living somewhere other than L.A., just being able to be a Boy Scout leader, drink beer on Saturday, go to church on Sunday, having fun. I could coach him in football. That’s the goal, and I need to do as many big movies as I can while there’s still time. Because you never know what’s next.”

It is so refreshing to see a famous father and husband step up and take pride in conservative values like working hard and providing for your family. Take notes, guys!
4. He’s a humble man…
There’s nothing more attractive than a modest man… especially when he’s as good looking and talented as Chris Pratt. Being the humble man he is, Pratt even apologized on Facebook prior to the long-awaited debut of Jurassic World for how much media coverage he would be getting in the upcoming weeks.
“You will be seeing A LOT of me in the press in the next few weeks as I circle the globe promoting the movie in different markets around the world. With social media the way it is you will have a front row seat to all of the promotional action if you so chose. There will be a lot. If it gets old or you grow weary of my face just remember, you could always do what I did while waiting for the original Jurassic Park to open, go outside and play with imaginary dinosaurs! They are the best and they are free!!!” Pratt wrote on his Facebook.
How sweet is that? Sorry Chris, you’re so lovable its hard for us to not want MORE of you! Check out his humble interview on the TODAY show too.
5. He’s a talented man…
From a goofball polishing shoes in Parks and Recreation to conquering dinosaurs in Jurassic World, Chris Pratt’s versatility as an actor explains his impressive accomplishments in the industry. He never seizes to amaze me!
Did you know Chris Pratt was the highest grossing actor of 2014? The 36-year-old grossed $1.2 billion globally for his lead roles in Guardians of the Galaxy and The Lego Movie!
6. He’s a family man…
Despite the Hollywood trend of divorce, infidelity, and broken families.. Chris adores his wife and two-year-old son, Jack!
“I think it’s important to carve those times out no matter what you do for a living,” the first-time father said. “I have the support of a strong partner who’s been through this and understands it and whom I can share these experiences with and we have a family that we’re starting that’s the focus of my attention.”
Chris and Anna have been married for six years and the love these two have for each other is unlike anything I’ve ever seen.
Look how sweet he was to Anna when he hosted Saturday Night Live!
Pratt cherishes family time but he also knows the importance of prioritizing your marriage.
“A lot of times, people focus so much on their kids, and then when their kids leave the nest, they look at their spouse or partner like they’re a stranger,” he said. “It’s just as important, if not more important, to focus on your relationship with your partner because your children are going to leave one day. You have to maintain a relationship that’s going to outlast your child’s needs for you.”
As the saying goes, happy wife=happy life and it’s obvious Anna is happy with her husband! These comedic lovebirds are too cute.
Seeing a family man like Chris in the spotlight gives me hope for America!
7. He’s a patriotic man…
Chris publicly expresses his appreciation of our military frequently. Check out these sweet posts from his Facebook where he showed soldiers the respect they deserve.
Chris is a true patriot and is raising his son with conservative values.. Something forbidden in Hollywood. Don’t forget about the video he recently shared too that went viral of Pratt teaching his two-year-old how to say the Pledge of Allegiance over Memorial Day weekend!
Chris also got the opportunity to share his patriotism when he starred in the Oscar-winning film, Zero Dark Thirty. In liberal Hollywood, it’s very rare to see a famous actor openly support our troops.
8. He’s A Giving Man…
Chris is an active servant of God. He is involved in community service and his humanitarian heart has helped so many people everywhere. Check out this priceless photo from when he visited the Seattle Children’s Hospital with actor Chris Evans.
He is involved with several non-profit organizations and is currently advocating for the American Diabetes Association. Watch this sweet video of Chris and Anna raising awareness for the ADA.
Chris also had the honor of speaking at the March of Dimes Celebration of Babies last year. This cause was close to his heart with the challenges he faced when Jack was born prematurely.
“None of what we went through would be as easy even 10 years ago,” he said. “a balance that’s tipping towards life by cutting-edge medicines, much of which is a direct result of this wonderful organization, the March of Dimes.”
Chris also helps out friends and fans in need on his own. Check out this sweet post from his Facebook. This melted my heart.
This man of God is giving the males of America an epic wake up call. Although media perpetuates the idolization of horrible role models that make awful decisions, Chris Pratt is the real deal.
America needs more men like Chris Pratt!
