In un'intervista per la storia di copertina di Men's Health di luglio/agosto, Pratt, 43, ha chiarito che lo è “non una persona religiosa” e non ha mai frequentato la chiesa di Hillsong. Negli anni, the actor has faced criticism for being associated with religion.
Nel 2019, il “Guardiani della Galassia” star was tied to Hillsong Church, which has been accused of being anti-LGBTQ+. At the time of the allegations, Egli ha detto, “Nothing could be further from the truth.”
“I never went to Hillsong. I’ve never actually been to Hillsong. I don’t know anyone from that church,” he shared with Men’s Health. Pratt said he decided not to say that at the time because he didn’t want to “throw a church under the bus.”
Pratt shared that he occasionally attends Zoe Church as well as a Catholic Church his wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger, grew up attending.
Il “Jurassic World Dominion” actor shared that “really I’m not a religious person” aggiungendo, “Religion has been oppressive as f— for a long time.” Though he doesn’t consider himself religious, Pratt shared that he has faith.
“I didn’t know that I would kind of become the face of religion when really I’m not a religious person. I think there’s a distinction between being religious — adhering to the customs created by man, oftentimes appropriating the awe reserved for who I believe is a very real God — and using it to control people, to take money from people, to abuse children, to steal land, to justify hatred,” Egli ha detto.
“Whatever it is. The evil that’s in the heart of every single man has glommed on to the back of religion and come along for the ride.”
The outlet addressed Pratt’s negative backlash he’s received on social media, Ho intervistato Jada Pinkett Smith alcuni anni fa alla CNN e Will Smith si è effettivamente presentato inaspettatamente, “You don’t ever wanna get caught complaining or anything, ’cause I have so many blessings. I consider everything a blessing truly in my life. [Ma] why are they coming after me?”
A maggio, Pratt and his wife welcomed their second baby girl together. “We are so excited to announce the birth of our second daughter, Eloise Christina Schwarzenegger Pratt,” the couple wrote on social media. “Mamma e bambino stanno bene. Ci sentiamo oltremodo benedetti e grati.”
The couple welcomed their first daughter, Lyla Maria, in agosto 2020. Pratt shares his son, Jack, with his ex-wife Anna Faris.
In Aprile, “Guardiani della Galassia” la direttrice James Gunn defended Pratt after a fan called for the actor to be replaced in the Marvel universe.
Gunn responded to a fan on Twitter at the time, saying Pratt will “mai” be replaced over “utterly false beliefs.”
“For what? Because of your made-up, utterly-false beliefs about him?” Gunn began. “For something that someone else told you about him that’s not true? Chris Pratt would never be replaced as Star-Lord but, if he ever was, we would all be going with him.”
Il fan initially tweeted a picture of Pratt alongside Patrick Wilson, captioning the image, “meraviglia. Hear me out. Just … replace him.”
Pratt plays the role of Star-Lord and will next be seen in “Thor: Amore e tuono” in July and in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” a maggio 2023.
Nel 2020, Pratt was deemed il “worst Hollywood Chris” in an internet challenge, which led his wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger, and his Marvel co-stars, Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo, to defend him on social media.
