Time to make it rain, ladies!
Chris Pratt is the latest actor to reveal his stripper past.
“I was always a very much naked person. I loved to always get naked. I was very free, so I thought, I may as well get paid,” the actor recently told Buzzfeed
Pratt says he juggled several dancer gigs at 18, but was far from Channing Tatum
, who chronicled his story
on the big screen in 2012.
“I was never like Magic Mike
, you know. I did go one time and audition on a stage for a club, but I don’t think I got the job. I don’t think I’m a very good dancer,” he jokes.
The Parks and Recreation star
, who recently beefed up
for his upcoming role in Guardian of the Galaxy
, said stripping wasn't the only way he paid the bills.
“I babysat and mowed lawns. I picked blackberries and sold them. I was always a very enterprising as a kid,” he said.
His days of selling fruit are long gone. Pratt, who's married to Anna Faris and dad to son
Jack, 14 months, will see his latest film, Delivery Man
, hit theaters later this month.
