Chris Pratt: I might be fat again

Chris Pratt can “definitely” see himself competing in the full Ironman triathlon one day.

The 36-year-old Jurassic World star is currently married to comedienne Anna Faris and the pair share two-year-old son Jack together.

Chris lost a significant amount of weight in preparation for his role in 2014 flick Guardians of the Galaxy and although he loves his tone body, the star won’t turn down delicious food to stay in shape.

“I can tell that people are motivated by my transformations, and that feels really good,” he revealed in the July issue of Men’s Health magazine. “But everyone should know when the movie star stuff is over, I might go back to being the fat guy. My wife [Anna] wants a pizza oven — she’s going to learn how to bake bread, and I’m going to eat it. I love the health benefits of exercising, and I have a kid now. By exercising, you really can add 20, 30 years to your life. But you gotta live too, so hopefully I’ll find a nice balance.”

Chris completed his first half Ironman competition in April. He completed 1.2 miles of swimming, 56 miles of cycling and 13.1 miles of running in the race and the star sees more triathlons in his future.

“Definitely,” he said in response to whether he wants to do another Ironman. “In fact, I want to do a full Ironman.”

Ultimately, Chris is grateful for being physically fit.

He believes exercise has helped him throughout all areas of life in surprising ways.

“As an actor, I can’t have proper mental prep without proper physical prep,” Chris said. “Even though I knew it deep inside, it took me a long time to realise how getting physically sharp helps me get ready for other things in my life.”
