We haven’t swooned over Chris Pratt in a really long time…wait, did we say “swoon?” We meant “admired heterosexually.” And while rumors about him may be blowing up the tabloids recently, this story reminds us why so many of us are fans.
Well, this story, and those pecs. Again, from a purely heterosexual perspective. In a manly way. Kinda like two vikings…
Mind you, this is from the National Enquirer, but still…
The new king of the box office is turning down any big-screen canoodling in favor of celebrating his Christian faith, sources told The National ENQUIRER.
“Everyone wants a piece of him,” said our insider, “but Chris refuses to even consider anything that involves a sex scene!”
“He knows that he’s become a sex symbol,” the pal told The ENQUIRER. “But it’s not the public image he wants to project – and it’s not something he sees as compatible with his faith!”
This is also an example as to why Chris Pratt is the best kind of Christian entertainer. He’s an entertainer first, who is also devout in his faith and not afraid to talk about it. That attracts so many more people than, “look at how Christian I am in this Christian movie I made, and you won’t believe what Hollywood told me. Everybody come look and see how Christian I can be!”
Sadly, those people tend to be the ones that the Right puts up on pedestals. When they inevitably fall, Christians have to own it. It happens again and again. Human nature, I guess. Those same people will likely accuse Pratt of not being ‘Christian enough’ because yes, he cusses and he can be pretty damn crass. So what? Seriously, so what? The guy’s in an incredible position of leadership and influence because he’s good at what he does. He’s also imperfect. I’d gladly take that over another church-volunteer produced, straight-to-dvd-not-even-blueray ‘Christian’ film that nobody wants to watch.
Chris Pratt, you keep doing you. Even if the “Christian Right” never gets behind you, there are a few of us out there who get it.
