Chris Pratt makes first public appearance at Teen Choice Awards since Anna Faris split
Chris Pratt returned to the spotlight Sunday (August 13, 2017) for the first time since his highly publicized breakup with Anna Faris.
The 38-year-old film star stepped out at the Teen Choice Awards without a wedding ring, marking the first time he’s attended an event since announcing the end of his marriage last week.
He skipped the red carpet, but took the stage later in the night to accept the Choice Sci-Fi Movie Actor prize for Guardians Of The Galaxy 2.
After thanking presenters Millie Bobby Brown, Maddie Ziegler and Grace VanderWaal, Pratt went on to share his own Hollywood origin story.
“When I came to Los Angeles, I came from Hawaii and I had all of this blonde hair and I was tan and I met an agent because I really wanted to be an actor and get an agent and he said, ‘Wow. Bro, you must surf?’ And I said ‘Yeah,’ and that was the first of many lies I told to get where I am today,” he told the crowd.
Being quite religious, Pratt also made sure to mention one of the most important forces in his own life.
“I would not be here with the ease and grace I have in my heart without my lord and savior, Jesus Christ,” the actor continued.
Pratt and Faris announced they would separate last week. In a joint Facebook statement, the couple said they were “sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward.”
