Chris Pratt: My wife is funnier than me

Chris Pratt is laughing his way through parenthood.

The Guardians of the Galaxy actor will celebrate his fifth wedding anniversary with fellow actress Anna Faris on Wednesday. The couple have a 23-month-old son Jack together and when asked who is the funnier parent, Chris had to admit it was his spouse.

“She is, by far! Jack has started to do very rudimentary art at school — maybe a few splots of paint across a piece of paper — and Anna gives them the funniest names,” he revealed to Redbook magazine. “There’s one on the fridge called ‘Everything is Realised’ and another one called ‘Time Is a Human Construct’.”

The 35-year-old married the Lost in Translation actress in Bali in 2009 after meeting on the set of Take Me Home Tonight. Jack came along on August 25 2012 and Chris opened up about how his son had changed his life.

“I’ve always been pretty busy — just with things like drinking beer,” he said. “Now I’m watching Daniel Tiger videos online and singing the ABC song. I heard someone say pretty accurately that in parenthood, there’s never a dull moment, even though every moment is dull. I’m experiencing way more real and lasting highs — but they’re a little fewer and farther between.”

Becoming a father has also shed light on his own habits at home. The Moneyball star admitted there were similarities between his son’s behaviour and his own.

“Having to follow Jack around and pick up after him made me realize how often Anna had been doing that for me. It’s like, ‘Wait a minute, why is all this crap everywhere? Oh, right, someone was picking it up for me.’ So I’m not taking that for granted anymore,” he said.
