Watch: Chris Pratt and Anna Faris' Strikingly Similar Lives

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris were destined for each other.

Married since July 2009, the What's Your Number? and Take Me Home Tonight co-stars are the proud parents of a 2-year-old son, Jack. Before 35-year-old Pratt makes his Saturday Night Live debut in four days, he talked to E! News about his happy home life with his 37-year-old wife and their tiny toddler.

Pratt admitted that he and Faris "sometimes" discuss "how strangely similar" their careers and lives have been. "We're both from the Pacific Northwest in Washington State. I grew up 20 minutes from her. I played football on her high school field," the Guardians of the Galaxy and Parks and Recreation actor said. Additionally, both stars made their feature film debuts in horror spoofs. "Mine was not quite nearly as successful as Scary Movie, but I was in a movie called Cursed Part 3...That was my first gig," Pratt said.

"There are many, many similarities to our lives," the Jurassic World star added. "It's one of those things that makes you realize things are meant to be and they're working out the way they're supposed to."

The two mirror each other in many ways, which Pratt says is surprisingly beneficial to their relationship. "A lot of times if you date somebody or are married to somebody that's really similar to yourself, it doesn't work, but for us it does work because we both happen to be completely in love with ourselves," the movie star joked. "When I look into her eyes and see my own, it just makes me love her even more."

When Pratt looks at his son, he sees a future "comedy writer."

"You've got to see this picture," the proud dad says, pulling out his iPhone. "Tell me this guy is not going to be working in the halls of SNL. This guy, he's the man," Pratt gushes. "He's really funny. He's just now getting to that point where he loves and audience and I think he's got no choice but to be a performer."
