Chris Pratt Says Jesus’ Struggle Helps Him Deal With Haters

Like most celebrities, Chris Pratt has had his fair share of haters. There are plenty of people who aren’t fans of his work and who have something negative to say about his career and him as a person, especially his religious beliefs. However, he doesn’t let it get him down, and that’s because he has a secret weapon. Whenever he starts to doubt himself, Chris Pratt thinks of Jesus’ struggle and suddenly the detractors don’t matter anymore.

Talking to Page Six at a screening of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” the actor said that many people criticize him for being open about his Christianity. “I sure do but that’s nothing new, that’s nothing new, you know?” He said. “If I was of this world, they would love me just like that but as it is, I’ve chosen out of this world. That’s John 15:18 through 20.”

Referencing Jesus Christ and the persecution he faced in his time, Chris Pratt added: “That’s the way it is, nothing new, 2,000 years ago they hated him too.”

Given that Chris Pratt is a Hollywood superstar in 2023 and not a self-proclaimed religious prophet existing in Jerusalem thousands of years ago, the similarities between himself and Jesus Christ seem pretty disparate. However, if that’s what makes him feel better and helps him deal with the negativity that surrounds him, fair enough.

However, considering the son of God when people are rude to him isn’t the only coping method he has for getting through. As he revealed, he shrugs off the haters in another way too.

“Oh, just how you deal with anything. Like a rhino, stick your head down, you keep driving forward, you have thick skin and if anyone gets in your way, you stick the horn right up their ass!” he revealed. That sounds like a much healthier way of dealing with things!
