Chris Pratt opened up to Men’s Health about the backlash he received last year for a post he made for his wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt.
In November 2021, Pratt wrote of his wife, “She’s given me an amazing life, a gorgeous healthy daughter, she chews so loudly that sometimes I put in my ear buds to drown it out, but that’s love!”

Social media users alleged that his post was “a dig at his ex-wife,” Anna Faris, since their 9-year-old son, Jack, was born prematurely.
The Jurassic Park actor said people’s responses “bothered” him and that he even “cried” about it.
He told Men’s Health, “I said something like, ‘Find someone who looks at you the way my wife looks at me.’ And then I gave her some s— in the thing and said, ‘But I love you. I’m so thankful for my wife — she gave me a beautiful, healthy daughter.’ And then a bunch of articles came out and said, ‘That’s so cringeworthy. I can’t believe Chris Pratt would thank her for a healthy daughter when his first child was born premature. That’s such a dig at his ex-wife.'”
“I’m like, That is f—d up. My son’s gonna read that one day. He’s 9. And it’s etched in digital stone. It really f—ing bothered me, dude. I cried about it. I was like, I hate that these blessings in my life are — to the people close to me — a real burden,” Pratt said.
Blockbuster movie star. Beloved coworker. Stand-up dad and all-around good hang. So why is @prattprattpratt the subject of so many Twitter pile-ons? He has some theories.
