With multi-million-dollar franchises like Jurassic World and Guardians of the Galaxy, it’s understandable why fans want to know about Chris Pratt’s net worth and whether he makes more as Star-Lord or Owen Grady.
Pratt—whose full name is Christopher Michael Pratt—was born on June 21, 1979, in Virginia, Minnesota. He graduated from high school in 1997 and went on to attend community college but dropped out in the first semester before moving to Maui, Hawaii, where he lived in a van and a tent on the beach. “It’s a pretty awesome place to be homeless. We just drank and smoked weed and worked minimal hours, just enough to cover gas, food, and fishing supplies,” he told the Independent in a past interview. While working as a waiter at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. in Maui, Pratt was discovered by actress and director Rae Dawn Chong who cast him in her directorial debut, Cursed Part 3. The short film led to other acting jobs, such as the role as Harold Brighton “Bright” Abbott on the TV show Everwood and Winchester “Ché” Cook on The OC.
Pratt’s breakthrough role came in 2009 when he played Andy Dwyer in NBC’s Parks and Recreation. Originally meant to be a guest star, the producers liked Pratt so much they promoted him to a series regular. His next big break came in 2014 when he was cast as Peter Quill, also known as Star-Lord, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. The success of the series led Pratt to star as the lead of other action movies like the Jurassic World franchise and The Tomorrow War.
In an interview on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert in 2016, Pratt opened up about what it was like to find success later in life. “[Fame] messes with you regardless probably. I feel bad for kids who get famous really young,” Pratt said at the time. “It’s important to make your mistakes in relative obscurity so you can say, ‘Wow shouldn’t have done that. I’m going to distance myself. Move on. Become a better person.’ You can really be defined by the mistakes you make.” Pratt, who was married to his ex-wife Anna Faris at the time, also told Colbert about what it was like to be married to someone who was much more famous than he was.
“We’ve been together about nine years, but no one really knew who I was and she was a big movie star and people knew her. It was nice for me to see how people treated her that were in her life,” he said. “That was a good lesson for me coming into this the last couple years of my life because you start to realize you that you can be surrounded by people that are going to be deferential and ‘yes men.’ It taught me some important lessons.”
