Chris Pratt Says He Will 'Never Be Fat Again'

Chris Pratt Says He Will 'Never Be Fat Again'

Chris Pratt shows off his muscular frame on the cover of Men’s Health UK‘s July 2015 issue,
on newsstands now.

Here is what the 35-year-old Jurassic World actor had to share with the mag about his weight gain and getting back into shape:

On realizing he needs to lose weight: “I’d gone back and forth, lost weight for Moneyball, got fat again, then trimmed down for Zero Dark Thirty, then gained it all back again for Andy. That’s when I saw Zero Dark Thirty and right after walking out I was like: ‘I’m going to get in shape and I’m never going to be fat again.’”

On the downside of being fat: “I was impotent, fatigued, emotionally depressed. I had real health issues that were affecting me in a major way. It’s bad for your heart, your skin, your system, your spirit.”

On gaining weight for Parks and Recreation: “I said to the creators that I wanted to get fatter for the role. They loved it. I announced it to the whole cast, and then it became a bit of a game: how fat can I get and how fast can I get that fat. I would eat three or four cheeseburgers at every table read [of a script]… I saw myself in an episode and in the matter of two moments very close together, I thought, ‘Oh my God, I’m getting fat.’ And then almost immediately I did something else and I thought, ‘Holy crap, I’ve never seen myself funnier.’ And I put the two together.”
