Chris Pratt’s past as a party stripper

Chris Pratt gained 65 pounds to play Vince Vaughn‘s sidekick in Delivery Man, but the Parks and Recreation star has proven he’s not just a comedian, dropping 77 pounds for the role of the Star-Lord in Marvel’s 2014 superhero flick, Guardians of the Galaxy. However, long before becoming famous for his funnyman roles, it turns out the 34-year-old became a stripper at 18 to make a few bucks. “I was always a very much naked person. I loved to always get naked,” he told Buzzfeed, “I was very free, so I thought, ‘I may as well get paid.'” Pratt’s past gigs included stripping at bachelorette parties and even at a party for his friend’s grandmother. He didn’t do a lot of gigs, but says, “I don’t know how it got around to them [that I was stripping], but they paid me $40.”

Chris confessed he auditioned to be a stripper at a club but lost out because he wasn’t a “Magic Mike,” referring to the 2012 stripper movie starring Channing Tatum. Often joking about his love handles, Chris recently posted a photo on Instagram, showing off a sizzling and toned six-pack, reminiscent of his stripper days. It seems the former comedy star is looking to keep his new carved body, as he’s also playing a rugged ex-military man in the upcoming Jurassic World, set to premiere June 2015.

    Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?

    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations?
