Chris Pratt Headshot

Actor

Birth Name: Christopher Michael Pratt

Birth Date: June 21, 1979

Age: 44 years old

Birth Place: Virginia, Minnesota

Spouses: Anna Faris

Many of Chris Pratt's biggest fans discovered him in his role as Andy Dwyer on the beloved sitcom "Parks and Recreation" (NBC, 2009-2015), but he became known throughout the world for his roles in blockbusters like "Jurassic World" (2015) and "Guardians of the Galaxy" (2014).

Born in Virginia, Minnesota in 1979 and raised in Lake Stevens, Washington, Pratt was active in high school wrestling. Though he exuded confidence and was known to proclaim that he would one day be rich and famous, his path to acting was circuitous.

He enrolled briefly at community college and later lived for a time in his van in Maui, Hawaii. Though he participated in dinner theater, Pratt only later pursued a full-time acting career upon moving to Los Angeles. He was working as a server at Bubba Gump Shrimp Company in 2000 when he happened to meet Rae Dawn Chong, who cast him in her directorial debut, the short film "Cursed Part 3" (2000).

Two years later, Pratt was cast as Bright Abbott on the drama series "Everwood" (WB, 2002-06), a part he stuck with until the show wrapped in 2006. He next played the character Che for two years on the series "The O.C." (WB, 2003-07) before appearing in the comedy "Take Me Home Tonight" (2007).

Pratt met actor Anna Faris during filming, and the two were married in 2009, the same year Pratt appeared in the acclaimed sports drama "Moneyball" (2009) and joined the cast of "Parks and Recreation." Pratt continued with the show even as his fame in movies climbed.

He appeared in Kathryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty" (2012) in 2012, and joined the Marvel universe in 2014 taking on the role of Peter "Star Lord" Quill in "Guardians of the Galaxy" (2014). Now a legitimate movie star, moved on to star in the latter-day sequel "Jurassic World" (2015) as dinosaur trainer Owen before appearing in the science fiction drama "Passengers" (2016) and Antoine Fuqua's remake of the Western "The Magnificent Seven" (2016).

He reprised the role of Peter Quill for "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" (2017) and "Avengers: Infinity War" (2018), and then reprised the role of Owen for "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" (2018).

Pratt and Faris divorced in 2018, but Pratt soon began seeing Katherine Schwarzenegger. The pair married in 2019, the same year Pratt played Peter Quill once again in the smash hit "Avengers: Endgame" (2019).
