Chris Pratt Says He Wasn’t Impotent, But Had Low Sex Drive At 300 Pounds: ‘Change Will Affect How Your Penis Feels’

Chris Pratt talks weight gain and weight loss.

Chris Pratt is a popular celebrity often found in the news, especially due to the weight loss and diet and exercise secrets Pratt has revealed, as reported by the Inquisitr.

When snippets from the article mentioning Pratt’s interview in the July issue of the UK version of Men’s Health was mentioned in various press reports, it included claims from Chris about impotency coming along with his top weight of 300 pounds.

As quoted in Us Weekly, Pratt called himself impotent without knowing what the word impotent actually meant. Chris spoke of falling in love with his wife Anna Faris and ignoring his diet, which Pratt said led to impotency and depression.

“We were drinking a lot of wine and having fun. I was her little Hansel out in the woods and she was fattening me up to put me in the fire. It was like Momma Bear and Papa Bear. 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 likely took to Google to soon learn the real definition of the word impotent, which firstly means powerless. The more commonly associated definition of the word impotent relates to sexual performance.

“Of a man abnormally unable to achieve a sexual erection.”

Also called erectile dysfunction or ED, impotence is additionally defined as follows.

“Occurs when a man can’t get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse.”

As such, Chris felt the need to correct himself, as reported by Us Weekly. Pratt told the publication he confused the word impotent with low sex drive or low libido. Whereas being impotent relates to not being able to achieve or maintain an erection, low sex drive relates more to not wanting to engage in sex very often.

“I’m not sure I knew what ‘impotent’ meant when I said it. I had a lower sex drive, to be honest with you. Everything about my spirit was dull. I didn’t feel great, and I think people will relate to that.”

Pratt went on to claim that he wasn’t dissing anyone who has body weight issues. Instead, Chris giving up the need to eat three burgers during his Parks and Recreation table reads and get healthier in his eating and workouts is a change that has affected every part of his being, including his non-impotent member.

“And it will affect you, not just physically, not just the way you look, but how you feel and how your spirit feels and how your penis feels — especially the penis part!”
