Chris Pratt at 300 Pounds Became 'Impotent and Depressed,' Actor Reveals

Chris Pratt, who stars in the upcoming "Jurassic World," topped out at nearly 300 pounds as his weight yo-yo'd for different roles over the years, and the extra pounds reportedly caused him to become "impotent and depressed."

"I was impotent, fatigued, emotionally depressed. I had real health issues that were affecting me in a major way. It's bad for your heart, your skin, your system, your spirit," Pratt told Men’s Health U.K. in its July issue, according to E! Online.

“I put on weight because I'd fallen in love with a woman [actress Anna Faris] who loved to feed her man. We were drinking a lot of wine and having fun,” he said, adding that he also gained weight for his role on “Parks and Recreation."

"I saw myself in an episode and in the matter of two moments very close together, I thought, 'Oh my God, I'm getting fat,'" he told Men's Health. "And then almost immediately I did something else and I thought, 'Holy crap, I've never seen myself funnier.' And I put the two together."


Pratt first talked about his weight gain, saying that made him feel funnier as a comic actor, to GQ magazine in June. He said that Faris didn’t mind when he was heavier.

"I think I was outwardly having more fun. I was more fun to be around, probably. That image that I was casting, to convince people that I was okay, was a really fun person to hang around," he said. "Now I have less fun. I focus more. She doesn't get to cook for me the way she used to."
