Chris Pratt, Men's Health

Say it ain't so, Chris Pratt!

The 36-year-old Jurassic World star is covering the latest issue of Men's Health in a sizzling hot spread. Despite looking super fit and sexy in the cover image, the muscled-up hunk jokes he may go back to his old, heavier self.

"I can tell that people are motivated by my transformations, and that feels really good," Pratt says. "But everyone should know when the movie star stuff is over, I might go back to being the fat guy. My wife wants a pizza oven—she's going to learn how to bake bread, and I'm going to eat it. I love the health benefits of exercising, and I have a kid now. By exercising, you really can add 20, 30 years to your life. But you gotta live too, so hopefully I'll find a nice balance."

Joking aside, Pratt got serious when talking about his decision to finally get in shape several years ago.

"It nagged me when I wasn't physically fit," Anna Faris' other half said. "It was just another thing on my to-do list that I wasn't capable of getting done."

After getting ripped for his role in Zero Dark Thirty, Pratt put some weight back on. "I was like, ‘I feel kind of s---ty about myself right now,'" he recalled. "I knew I had to get back on a path to becoming fit again, that I was going to make a splash when I walked into a room with a casting director from then on."

Mission accomplished!
