Chris Pratt: I was always nude

Chris Pratt knows what it feels like to be invisible and have others hit on his wife.

The handsome actor is confident in front of the camera, taking on charismatic roles such as Peter Quill in Guardians of the Galaxy and Alex Eilhauer in The Five-Year Engagement.

From a young age Chris hasn't been afraid to show his true colours and is always one to express his feelings, no matter how inappropriate.

"I was obnoxious, really hyperactive, disruptive... but also Dad was very, very strict, so if I got yelled at, I would stay silent for a long period of time. I was really sensitive. I cried a lot. I was a crybaby for a long time. And kind of perverted. I was like a little perv," he told America's GQ.

"I was a jokester, I had a dirty mind, and a dirty sense of humour. And I was naked a lot. I was naked all the time. It was just recently, in the last few years since I've become an adult, that I've learned to keep my clothes on. And even then, I really haven't."

He added that he was once suspended from the track team in high school for stripping off on the bus, which he found "hilarious" rather than offensive.

Luckily his odd antics haven't put women off, and he's happily married to fellow star Anna Faris. The couple have two-year-old son Jack together and despite their hectic work schedules, Chris doesn't let the constant shift of fame affect them.

"I think it's something you have to manage. It's a little different, because she's achieved enough to hang her hat on for her life, anyways. She's done really amazing things - she's always gonna be known for really funny and great work, critically acclaimed work and successful stuff," he gushed. "I've had those moments, where I was like the guy holding the purse at events and people just looked right through me. And, you know, actors come up and just blatantly hit on my wife in front of me and don't even look at me. I'm like, 'What the f**k, dude?' I can think of exactly who they are, too, and I hope they f**king [auditioned] for Guardians of the Galaxy.
