Chris Pratt may have an affinity for good food, as he made clear in a guest appearance on Top Chef, but the actor also knows how to ditch the fine dining and get his body in fighting form. He did just that while preparing for a part in Guardians of the Galaxy — and now he’s showing off the results on Instagram!
He’s always been an attractive guy, but Chris Pratt is looking especially good in the aftermath of a strict fitness regimen designed to prepare him for a role in Guardians of the Galaxy. Chris showed off his new physique in a recent Instagram photo, the result of which was plenty of praise from his growing fan base.
So, how exactly did Chris Pratt go from good-looking guy to muscled superhero? Clearly, weightlifting was involved to some extent, seeing as the backdrop for his Instagram photo was a gym of some sort. But the actor also attributes his transformation to “no beer for six months,” as he explained in a recent Twitter post.
Of course, humble as ever, Chris was initially very reluctant to post a shirtless picture of himself online. In a rather sheepish caption for the Instagram post, the actor conceded that it was “kinda douchey to post this,” but that he also could not be held completely responsible, as his brother supposedly forced him to post the picture.
Yes, Chris Pratt looks great in his Instagram photo, but no, you won’t get to see him in Guardians of the Galaxy just yet. The film is not slated for release until August of 2014. It’s a bummer, but hey, at least we have something to look forward to this next year!
