“I Loved To Always Get Naked”: Chris Pratt, Teenage Stripper
This just in: Chris Pratt used to strip for money. Okay, so maybe he only did it once or twice but still. Let’s close our eyes for a minute, shall we? The Delivery Man star tells Buzzfeed, “I was always a very much naked person. I loved to always get naked. I was very free, so I thought, I may as well get paid.”
Yes, that photo warranted repeating, but I digress.
Chris explained that after high school, he did a host of odd jobs to make ends meet, including babysitting, mowing lawns, painting murals, picking blackberries (huh?) and, stripping for his friend’s grandmother’s birthday party(!!!).
“It was a surprise. I don’t know how it got around to them, but they paid me $40. I was never like Magic Mike, you know. I did go one time and audition on a stage for a club, but I don’t think I got the job. I don’t think I’m a very good dancer.” Here’s hoping an old VHS recording surfaces in 3 .. 2..
