Chris Pratt On Dropping 60 Pounds: “I Cut Beer Out”

To most folks he’s the lovable, frumpy Andy Dwyer from “Parks and Recreation,” but Chris Pratt can also play a muscle-bound hunk pretty convincingly.

The “Zero Dark Thirty” star told Jay Leno that he had one simple rule for himself while losing the 60 pounds he previously gained for his gig on Vince Vaughn’s “Delivery Man.”

During his interview on “The Tonight Show,” Chris explained, “I cut beer out. I didn’t drink for seven to eight months, which was really not that difficult for me.”

Pratt added, "I'm not like a huge alcoholic or anything, but I always prided myself on being in a pretty good mood. And then I stopped drinking alcohol for 8 months and I realized from time to time I got grumpy. It's a nice social lubricant."

Pratt also shared that he missed his son Jack while filming “Guardians of the Galaxy” for five months in London. "Babies at six months old, they're like houseplants. They're there, but they don't give much back. There's not a real reciprocal relationship. You put water on them, make sure the window's open and they're fine. But when I came back, [he was] this little blob of flesh, this little poop machine. He became this darling, precious personality, this little boy."

"I taught him fart sounds lately. [Wife Anna Faris] will be in charge of reading and things like that."
