Chris Pratt Attributes His Meteoric Rise to Fame to Coupons and Faith: I Feel Like It Was Perfectly Planned | E! News Australia

“Believe it or not, though, Pratt says he owes his career to those days he worked as a coupon salesman. “That’s why I believe in God and the divine,” he tells Vanity Fair. “I feel like it was perfectly planned. People talk about rejection in Hollywood. I’m like, ‘You’re outta your f–kin’ mind. Did you ever have someone stick their dog on you at an audition?'”…

What began as the chubby loveable guy turned into a hunky superhero, thanks to a rude awakening during a casting call for 2011’s Moneyball.

“That was the first time I heard someone say, ‘We’re not gonna cast you—you’re too fat,'” Pratt remembers. “So I decided to drop the weight, like in wrestling. I couldn’t afford a trainer, so it was all running and crash-dieting and cutting alcohol.””
