Chris Pratt Dismissed His Haters By Comparing Himself To Jesus
For many, Chris Pratt has firmly cemented himself as The Worst Chris™ (movie edition; Chris Brown exists) for a wide array of offenses like bastardizing our beloved childhood characters, being a member of an anti-LGBTQ church, thanking his wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger for their “healthy daughter” while also having a medically fragile son with his ex-wife Anna Faris, and railing against his “woke” critics. Though if you asked him, he’d still probably say it was only because he’s super vocal about loving him some Jesus. The never shutting up about that is undoubtedly part of it, and right on cue, he’s at it again by citing scripture and comparing his struggle with detractors to Jesus’.
Page Six says Chris was on the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 stroll during a screening, and when asked about how he deals with so many people hating his annoying ass, he went full Christ Pratt.
The “Jurassic World” star, who has been outspoken about his faith, agreed that he’s been criticized for it.
“I sure do but that’s nothing new, that’s nothing new, you know?” the actor, 43, told Page Six exclusively Monday at a Cinema Society screening of his upcoming Marvel movie, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.”
Pratt reiterated his point by quoting biblical scripture. “If I was of this world, they would love me just like that but as it is, I’ve chosen out of this world. That’s John 15:18 through 20,” he shared.
“That’s the way it is, nothing new, 2,000 years ago they hated him, too,” he added, referencing Jesus Christ.
Yeah, Chris, being deemed The Worst Chris™, but all the while still making millions by being cast in several lucrative franchises is totally akin to Jesus’ eventual crucifixion. He continued and talked about being a door-to-door salesman, which he says helped him get used to rejection (and seems like a logical first step on his seemingly never-ending quest to get on everyone’s last damn nerve; we’ve all ducked down and hit the lights to hide from those tricks before).
“Oh, just how you deal with anything,” he shared. “Like a rhino, stick your head down, you keep driving forward, you have thick skin and if anyone gets in your way, you stick the horn right up their ass!”
When Page Six cheekily inquired whether he enjoyed sticking it up someone’s ass, the “Tomorrow War” star laughed and credited his years toiling as a door-to-door salesman for his leathery ungulate-like skin.
“Hmm, well, when it comes to rejection, I was trained in the crucible of door-to-door sales some 25 years ago,” he revealed. “So, you can’t turn me away, there’s no stopping us.”
Well, okay, but I think I can safely speak for the rhino community when I say that all rhinoceroses would very much like to be excluded from this narrative.
