GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY star Chris Pratt posted the below image showing off his Star-Lord physique on twitter to an immensely positive reaction. Some people thought it was boastful and showing off. but not for a man who has been overweight for the last eight years.
In the below video, Pratt talks about posting the photo, the positive feedback that he has received and how he got over his weight issues.
I've never really felt any douchier than the day after I set that photo out and I had all my friends tearing me apart on that one. For the most part it (the reaction) was pretty positive. I haven't always been fat but I've been fat for like the 8 years or something, which is really fun, really great and I love being eating food and drinking beer and having fun with my life. But also I was kind of depreseed a little bit when I was fat and there's probably people out there who will agree and understand what that feels like and I tell them, "Hey! If you just bust your ass and get after it, all it takes is six months really. Six months flies by whether you are working out everyday or whether you are not and you feel compelled to do something about it, take some action, get in shape then do it." You could, you really could, in six months. All you have to do is just book a Marvel movie and have a deadline and that's like you if you don't get fit you might get fired. Then it's easy.
