What’s not to love about Hollywood’s newest hunky action star?
Chris Pratt, the Guardians of the Galaxy actor, has not only given a thumbs up to a gay superhero hook-up, but he’s also truly ogle-worthy material.
Some may not know that the lead in the latest Marvel hit film wasn’t always buff and boasting ripped abs to drool over.
In fact, until recently he was best known as the cute and chubby comedy star of shows like Parks and Recreation.
Guardians of the Galaxy is his breakout role and he took on the task of beefing up for the part with aplomb – resulting in the impressive stud we see today.
In a recent interview, the 35-year-old was asked by Buzzfeed’s Whitney Jefferson if he was aware of x-rated online gay fan fiction featuring Marvel superheroes.
“It’s just people that think you guys are super hot and should be hooking up with each other,” she said.
Pratt responded with a growing smile and a laugh, “Like, me, Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr? I’ll have to say I agree,” adding, “Sounds pretty fun.”
Sadly, it’s unlikely the actor will consider a man-on-man hook-up in real life. He’s a happily married father of one with Mom star Anna Faris.
Below are some reminders of why Chris is someone you should definitely be keeping your eye on.
