Pratt ‘strangely similar’ to Faris

Chris Pratt confesses he and his wife Anna believe their lives are eerily alike.

The Guardians of the Galaxy actor and his actress spouse tied the knot in Bali in 2009 and welcomed their son Jack in August 2012.

And Chris tells E! News the couple “sometimes” converse about “how strangely similar” their life stories have been so far.

"We're both from the Pacific Northwest in Washington State. I grew up 20 minutes from her. I played football on her high school field," he told the outlet.

In addition to their upbringing, both Chris and Anna made their feature film debuts playing parts in horror parodies.

Although the similar series of events may seem coincidental to some, the spouses believe they serve as a sign their union was destined.

"[My movie debut] was not quite nearly as successful as [Anna’s in] Scary Movie, but I was in a movie called Cursed Part 3... That was my first gig," Chris shared.

"There are many, many similarities to our lives. It’s one of those things that makes you realise things are meant to be and they're working out the way they're supposed to."

Chris is aware of the idea sharing parallel qualities with a mate can potentially lead the relationship to disaster.

But he doesn’t think this theory applies to his marriage with Anna.

"A lot of times if you date somebody or are married to somebody that's really similar to yourself, it doesn't work, but for us it does work because we both happen to be completely in love with ourselves," Chris joked. "When I look into her eyes and see my own, it just makes me love her even more."
