Chris Pratt News 2014: Actor Opens Up About His Weight Loss, Admits His 'Sex Drive' Has Improved [VIDEO]
Chris Pratt is opening up once again about his dramatic weight loss after signing on to play the lead role in Marvel's box office hit, Guardians of the Galaxy. The actor, who many fans know as Andy Dwyer on Parks and Recreation, admits that he feels much better now that he's dropped his weight after feeling ill and developing a sleep apnea when he weighed almost 300 pounds.
Pratt says that he appreciates his new body so much so that he loves experimenting with different fashion and styles and even has more energy now.
"I like clothes now. I have more energy. I sleep better. My sex drive is up," Pratt told Esquire Magazine in a new interview on Thursday. "Blood's flowing. I'm less susceptible to impulse. I'm in a different mode."
Pratt added, "A moment might be a week or a month. So instead of 'Boy, I'd love to eat this hamburger right now,' I'm considering a little further into the future. I'm thinking, I eat that hamburger and that's 1,200 calories and I'm gonna work out tomorrow and lose 800 calories. I may as well eat a salad here, still do that workout, and then I'm actually making progress."
Meanwhile, the actor recently went on record to say that it would be "embarrassing" to be punched by Orlando Bloom.
During an interview with DJ Whoo Kid, Pratt learned about the now notorious Ibiza fight between Justin Bieber and Orlando Bloom and added his two cents about the brawl.
"Oh, how embarrassing to get punched by Orlando Bloom!" Pratt said on the show, according to Us Weekly. "Of all the people you could get punched by, it's Orlando Bloom? Oh no! I would rather get farted on by David Hasselhoff than punched by Orlando Bloom!"
