Chris Pratt and Kim Kardashian may seem like complete opposites. He’s a formerly fat funny guy who transformed his body and his career with roles that show off his abs of steel, while Kim has become the reality TV queen, who also battled her weight. But as Chris revealed, they actually crossed paths in the past. Both have also shared success in shedding pounds, reported GQ.
When Pratt first began his acting career, he had a series of roles that he admits weren’t exactly ones to treasure. In Deep in the Valley, Chris was in a film with adult film stars.
“First time I was ever number one on the call sheet,” he recalled. “But, uh, it is not good.”
One memorable moment from that forgettable film, however, was acting with Kim Kardashian. She took on the role despite her lack of experience in the film world, revealed Pratt.
“She’d never really done an acting gig before,” he noted. “She was so f**king sweet, and she was nervous.”
As a result, when he subsequently encountered Kim, he attempted to hide from her. Chris says he was embarrassed about the past as well as a rude joke that he made about her on Parks and Recreation that, although was cut from the show, later surfaced on the Internet.
But while they share that adult film past and also their weight wars, Pratt admits he initially had no desire to lose weight. Viewing himself on Parks and Recreation, Chris decided that he could make more money by gaining weight.
“I saw myself and I thought, ‘Wow, I’m getting fat.’ And then immediately I was like, ‘This is the funniest…‘ I was making myself laugh. I was: ‘That’s where it’s at. There’s no one doing that. No one being like a super-confident dumb fat guy.’ So I started.”
And Chris received encouragement to add on the pounds from the show runner. However, although he succeeded professionally as the fat guy, Pratt admits that he didn’t feel physically well when he was overweight.
Then came Guardians of the Galaxy. And to play that role required a complete physical transformation as well as a change in his acting skills.
As the Inquisitr reported, Chris used a Paleo low-carb diet and CrossFit to lose more than 60 pounds.
To distinguish himself from his former chubby self in Parks And Recreation wasn’t easy. But he eliminated alcohol and starchy carbohydrates and set himself up with a tough fitness regime.
Now, Pratt views his Paleo diet as a lifestyle.
“I’m done with that,” declared Chris with regard to both booze and starchy carbs.
And it’s a diet plan similar to Kim Kardashian’s weight loss program, who used the Atkins low-carb diet to shed her post-pregnancy pounds, reported E! News.
Just like Chris, Kim eliminated starchy carbohydrates and beefed up on protein. She also ate non-starchy vegetables, such as asparagus and lettuce, and healthy fats such as avocado and nuts.
