And we can’t cope.
Chris Pratt passed a professional milestone this weekend, officially becoming a member of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and getting honoured with a star on the infamous Hollywood Boulevard.
Being a popular man about Hollywood, Chris’ acceptance ceremony on Friday was packed, attended by co-stars and fans as well as friends and family. The 37-year-old actor spent most of his time, however, with wife Anna Faris and four-year-old son Jack.
Breaking Hollywood Walk of Fame tradition, Chris Pratt wasn’t introduced to the stage by a past director or co-star, but instead by Anna, his wife of eight years, who gave a moving speech about how special her husband was, making us all fall in love with him (obviously).
‘This is actually a thank you speech,’ Faris announced to the crowd. ‘I’m a beneficiary of all this because I get to spend every day with this wonderful man.’ She continued: ‘I know that if our circumstances were different and we weren’t as fortunate to be standing here and living our Hollywood life, we would be happy in the woods together, I think.’
After praising him as a husband, she went on to praise Chris Pratt on fatherhood, going on to talk about their son Jack, who was born two months prematurely in 2012, weighing just 3 pounds, 12 ounces. ‘He stood by me and held me and was my anchor,’ she explained. ‘Honey, I want to thank you for being the most incredible person. I love you so much.’
Chris Pratt soon returned the compliments, taking to the podium to accept the honour and pay thanks to his family. After thanking his mother, brother and sister, Pratt moved on to thank his wife.
‘I want to thank my wife Anna, I love you. You’ve given me so much. You gave me the greatest star in the galaxy in my little boy, I love him and I love you,’ he announced. ‘We have bonded to make this molecule that is more important to me than air or water, and without it none of this means anything to me. With every challenge, with every day, week, month, decade, we become more bonded. You make me laugh like nobody else. You’re very caring, and thank you for your trust and your sacrifice — and for your dedication and your heart. I will do my best to protect it, and in return I will give you all of those things as well. You have my heart, my dedication, my trust.’
This is too much.
