Hollywood Actor Chris Pratt On Being 'Pro Jesus'

Hollywood actor and “Guardians of the Galaxy” star, Chris Pratt recently shared how his faith is impacted by being in Hollywood.


Talking about his experiences in Hollywood, Chris was clear to say that he personally has never felt slighted or shamed for his faith. For this actor, Hollywood has been so open to any form of religion that he has always felt very free to share his personal message of faith and the power of prayer. In his interview with The Associated Press, Pratt said ““I think that there's this narrative that exists out there that Hollywood is anti-Christian or anti-religious, but it's just not the case. They are kind of not anti-anything.””

Pratt continued that for him, speaking about his faith now from a public platform is the right thing to do. The actor shared that he feels called to be a voice. And that no matter what is said about him, he will continue speaking to whomever will listen. He feels that Hollywood is encouraging of being “authentic” to oneself and for Pratt that means being in touch with his faith.

“It is an authentic thing for me. That kind of message it might not be for everybody but there is a group of people for whom that message is designed…For me it’s authentic to be pro-Christian, pro-Jesus”

The actor was been vocal about his faith recently at the MTV Award Show as well. “God is real. God loves, you, God wants the best for you,” he said. “Believe that. I do.” His message was a part of “Nine rules to live by according to Chris Pratt”. He also included the importance of prayer and accepting grace in one’s life. This actor isn’t mincing words when it comes to sharing his faith!
