Actor Chris Pratt (“Guardians of the Galaxy”, “Movie 43”, and “Parks and Recreation“) remembers his father who passed away in 2014 after years of struggling with multiple sclerosis. Read on for more details.
To show his appreciation, Pratt took to social media with a sentimental Twitter post over the Labor Day weekend.
The tweet, accompanied by a throwback fishing picture of Chris, elder brother Cully, and father Daniel reads: “Your to do list: 1)have kids 2)play outside 3)teach them to fish 4)take pictures Thanks Dad. Miss you man.”
According to Sky News, Pratt opened up about his father’s death earlier, revealing he had to separate his feelings while shooting “Jurassic World” in New Orleans.
‘”I knew, being the lead in the movie, that I was really responsible for everybody’s attitude. So I compartmentalised it all and dealt with it in my own way,” but not to an extent where it was open for everybody to see, Pratt said.
In a previous interview with GQ, Pratt shared the painful struggle of losing his father. He also disclosed that he was in his twenties when the MS hit his father hard and how the experience made him and his brother into who they are now.
“My brother and I talk about it,” Pratt said. “Part of us appreciate that he made us tough, you know, through sort of emotional scarification.”
Now a proud father himself, Pratt has a three-year-old son Jack with wife, actress Anna Farris.
Meanwhile, Pratt is currently busy with filming a remake of 1960 western movie “The Magnificent Seven,” co-starring Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke, and Vincent D’Onofrio.
There is more to expect from Pratt as it was also recently formalized that he will be reprising his role as Owen with Bryce Dallas Howard in the untitled “Jurassic World” sequel that will be slated for a June 2018 release.
According to Deadline Hollywood, although Pratt and Howard will be returning as leads, it was also confirmed that director Colin Trevorrow will be engaged with a “Star Wars” related project.
