'My heart sank'
Chris Pratt made headlines this month, as he announced his engagement to Katherine Schwarzenegger, popping the question after just seven months of dating.
‘Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes!’ The actor posted to his Instagram alongside a photo where Katherine is showing off her new sparkler of a rock. ‘I’m thrilled to be marrying you. Proud to live boldly in faith with you. Here we go!’
But it wasn’t his ex wife Anna Faris’ sweet message of congratulations that got the world talking the most, or even her offer to officiate the wedding. Instead, it was the resurfacing of a 2017 interview where Katherine was asked to choose her favourite of three famous Chrises - Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans and Chris Pratt.
Hilariously. Katherine chose Chris Evans, before changing her answer to her now fiancé, Chris Pratt. If only she had known!
‘Actually, Chris Pratt,’ she corrected herself. ‘Chris Pratt has been looking good lately, so you know.’
The throwback interview was shown to her now fiancé Chris Pratt during a recent appearance on Access Hollywood where he and Elizabeth Banks were promoting their new film, Lego Movie.
Wow. Did you know about that?’ Elizabeth Banks asked her co star after they were shown the old video, ’to which Chris confirmed that he didn’t, even asking if the video had been edited as a joke.
‘When she said Chris Evans, my heart sank,’ he exclaimed. ‘And then she rescued it’.
