In a recent appearance on Conan to promote Zero Dark Thirty, Chris Pratt revealed that he had once worked as a door-to-door coupon salesman. But what did he do after walking away from that lucrative career? Is this the point where he transitioned into acting?
No, after leaving the coupon sales biz, Pratt told Letterman last night that he moved to Hawaii and lived in a van with a dude named Zeb while he worked as a waiter at Bubba Gump Shrimp Company. Coincidentally, it was the job at Bubba Gump that led to his “big break,” so to speak. And that sounds just about right. No, check that — that sounds perfect. Positively Chris Prattian.
I don’t know about you, but I’m loving that each time Chris Pratt makes a talk show appearance he reveals a new odd job he once engaged in to survive. I have a feeling this could be a long-running series: “The Odd Jobs of Chris Pratt.”
Also, has any celebrity ever looked more uncomfortable in a suit than Chris Pratt? It’s kind of adorable, really, like a little kid forced by his mom to dress up to go to church on Sunday or something. Anyway, enjoy…
