Jurassic World is now dubbed the highest grossing global film. However, there is more to the Pratt than the success of a movie.
"I need to do as many big movies as I can while there's still time. Because you never know what's next."
MUNTINLUPA, PHILIPPINES (Catholic Online) - Chris Pratt is a man with strong faith in God, which he emphasized in an interview with GQ magazine.
The famous Hollywood actor talked about times he and wife, actress Anna Faris, prayed a lot after the premature birth of their son Jack. Pratt also revealed the family man he is and his big dreams for his family.
"We were scared for a long time. We prayed a lot. 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," he recalled during the interview.
Jack was brought home about a month after staying at the NICU following a hernia surgery. He grew healthily, according to Pratt, and now at two, he's attending preschool in glasses.
Chris Pratt and Anna Faris are one rare couple in the limelight, according to Pratt, as he revealed that even after six years of marriage, he still adores her. The family man explained that he believes couples must focus on each other and not just on the kids, adding that it is important they "maintain a relationship that's going to outlast your child's needs for you."
Pratt never denied the fact that he's going to be pushing for his career's success, as well.
"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."
