Chris Pratt Interview – The Magnificent Seven – “I gave this impression of being the happy fat guy when underneath I was very depressed and unhappy”

PREVIEW

Chris Pratt is a very happy guy.  He knows what it’s like to be broke, unemployed, and couch-surfing at friends’ houses while struggling to find work in Hollywood. Perhaps that’s what made him eternally grateful for all the success he’s enjoying today.  Greeting you with a polite handshake and smile, Pratt gives the impression that he loves every minute of his life.  And why not?

THE INTERVIEW

Q:  You battled with your weight for many years.  Now you’re known as one of the sexiest men alive.  You must derive a certain amount of satisfaction from having undergone that kind of personal and professional transformation?

PRATT:  It was very important to lose that weight and get fit.  I was eating very badly and it was having a very bad effect on my overall health.  I gave this impression of being the happy fat guy when underneath I was very depressed and unhappy about my appearance.  I had no energy and sometimes I felt helpless about my situation.
