Chris Pratt’s humble beginnings

The Chris Controversy
In a poll on Twitter where fans were asked to vote out the best/ worst Chris(es) in the industry, Chris Pratt was voted as the “Worst Chris” (The options included Chris Pratt, Chris Pine, Chris Hemsworth, and Chris Evans) Fans argued that Chris attended a church which is against the rights of people of the LGBTQA+ community. This led many to believe that he may be a Trump support, contrary to what he claimed.
When CNN asked Chris about this, he denied the rumor about the church, and many of the actors who had previously worked with him such as Zoe Saldana, Mark Ruffalo, and Robert Downey Jr. supported his statements.
His personal life
On a personal note, he was married to Anna Farris, the actor who played the lead role in the sitcom Mom, for seven years before they divorced in 2018. He is now married to Katherine Schwarzenegger, the daughter of Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
His story has proven that it is possible for anyone to achieve the American dream. We hope this news made your day!
