Chris Pratt on married life: ‘I’m lucky… God is good, I’m so grateful’

Chris Pratt and wife Katherine Schwarzenegger go out and about in West Hollywood with coffee in hand

Chris Pratt attended the Disney D23 expo to shill for the latest Guardians of the Galaxy movie, plus he’s done voice work in Pixar’s Onward. He attended the expo by himself, without his young wife Katherine Schwarzenegger. But all of the media outlets wanted to ask him about his recent wedding and how married life is treating him (for the second time). He had a lot of nice things to say about Katherine and… God.

Chris Pratt opened up about new wife Katherine Schwarzenegger on Saturday, August 24, and said he’s “so grateful” to have found her.

“Aww, man, I’m lucky,” the Guardians of the Galaxy star, 40, told Entertainment Tonight at Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, where he was promoting his new animated movie, Onward, with Avengers costar Tom Holland. “God is good. I feel really good, really blessed. Everything is great.”

The Parks and Recreation alum and Schwarzenegger, 29, tied the knot in June in Montecito, California.

“I love it, man,” he told Access Hollywood of married life. “I’m so grateful.”

The Onward star, 40, also told Extra that he and Schwarzenegger, 29, still “literally and figuratively” feel like honeymooners.

Grateful, lucky, blessed… it’s nice. I guess it feels rather old-school. Everything about this courtship and marriage has felt so vintage, so throwback – they met at church, they had a short courtship and a fast engagement and a nice wedding. Chris is grateful that he found someone who doesn’t have a competing career, someone who wants to be “the wife” waiting at home for him. I mean, it’s not my cup of tea, but everybody’s different and I’m happy they found each other.

    I just find myself liking him less and less the more I am exposed to him.

  2. MrsBanjo says:

    Ugh. “Oh God is so good, He blesses me so much.” I’m sure he, a rich white man married to a rich white woman feels super blessed. I mean, that’s who God really cares about, right?

    This shit always bugs me. These types are so blessed personally by God but everyone else is shit out of luck.

      Pretty much everything you wrote! Sigh…

      Exactly !!!!

    • Algernon says:

      Reminds me of that Tim Minchin song about God’s limited liability plan of helpfulness:

      I assumed there was no God at all but now I see that’s cynical
      It’s simply that his interests aren’t particularly broad
      He’s largely undiverted by the starving masses,
      Or the inequality between the various classes
      He gives out strictly limited passes,
      Redeemable for surgery or two-for-one glasses

    • Melissa Manifesto says:

      I don’t know much about Chris Pratt, but nope that’s not who God cares about. God cares and loves all of, and I’m sorry that a lot of people have allegedly been using Christianity as only for white, male, and/or privileged.

      • MrsBanjo says:

        Allegedly? No. They ARE. Every time a law is passed that discriminates against someone Christianity holds as not good enough. Every time someone goes on TV and says X disaster, natural or otherwise happened because of [insert minority group that offended Christians that day] and are allowed to be broadcast and continue their hate because “free speech” regardless of the fact that that speech actively harms groups. Every time white male Christians are murdering people in the name of their religion and the first thing that’s heard is “not all white male Christians.” And all of this ignoring the fact that the problems in the Middle East, South Asia, and the Americas can be directly attributed as originating with white Christian colonialism.

        And you say “allegedly.”

      • Still_Sarah says:

        @ MrsBanjo : I believe you are wrong to lump all Christians as one lock-step group. We don’t have a “hive mind”.

  3. Eve says:

    …And IIIIIIIIIIII-eeeee-IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII will always LOATHE him! Eeeeeee-IIIIIIIIIII will always LOATHE hiiiiiiiimmmmmm!!!!

    I’ll always…wooh-hoo-ooh…LOOOHHAATHE him.

  4. Valen says:

    Omg. same here!

  5. Jegede says:

    Grateful to Pratt and Schwarz for reminding me again how full of sh!t ‘blind items’ are.🥱

    I remember all the blinds’ & posts ‘revealing’ – as FACT – that Katherine was 3 months pregnant, pre-June matrimony and their’s was absolutely a shot gun wedding.🙄🙄🙄

  6. Kitten says:

    Bleh. They look like siblings.
    I just REALLY hope that they don’t own any pets together.

  7. Leo says:

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen an actor whose personality and likability in real life was soooo much in odds with his most famous roles. Such a shame, especially because of Star-Lord and that happy-go-lucky wrangler in Jurassic Park.

  8. agnes says:

    Crisp Rat.
    That is all.

  9. Derpy says:

    Yeah I can’t stand this dude

  10. Ramona Q. says:

    My friend lives in LA and waited on these two and his son 2-3 weeks ago. Some time after ordering, Katherine decided she wanted her burger with cheese and avocado, so when the food came she pretended the server and/or kitchen made a mistake and forgot her cheese and avocado. Chris Pratt and my friend exchanged a private look, like, Really? So that’s the kind of person she is. And the kind of person he is. And the kind of person he knows she is. Good luck with all those blessings.

    • MrsBanjo says:

      That is such a weird thing to pretend. Good lord, yikes.

      That’s where my inability to shut up would come into play. “Ma’am, it’s right there. On the burger. Right in front of you. Did you just not get enough cheese and avocado? Because sure, for an extra charge we can add more. But it’s not missing. It’s literally in front of you.” I would get fired the minute I started my first shift.

      • StarGreek says:


        But maybe I am biased because I couldn’t ever stand him, married with someone or not.

        He comes across as self entitled.

      • Kitten says:

        I think the OP was saying that she just forgot to ask for cheese and avocado on her burrger but instead of admitting as much, she pretended that the server got the order wrong.

        D*ck move for sure.

    • ME says:

      Could she not have just apologized for changing her mind? Instead nope, let’s blame the server. That’s such a b*tchy thing to do. I hope they left a big tip.

    • weezle says:

      In her defence, she may have honestly thought that she had ordered the additional sides. I remember a time that I thought that I’d ordered wheat toast, but I had clearly stated “dry white toast” (a line from the Blues Brothers that is forever embedded in my brain). However, my husband called me out on the spot, and I apologised to the lady serving us.

  11. megs283 says:

    Is there a problem nowadays with saying you feel blessed? Because I sure don’t think so. Saying that you feel blessed does not mean that you think you’re better than other people. It’s a way of verbalizing that you appreciate your life and the gifts you’ve been given. I think it’s nice that Chris Pratt feels blessed.

    • weezle says:

      I am not religious, but I agree with you, megs283. Acknowledging and being thankful for the positive things in your life is healthy (even if you believe that they are because of some dude in the sky). What about Kanye? He’s got his own nondenominational Christian church. I bet he thanks God for the blessings that have been bestowed upon him.

    • lisa says:

      Saying “I am blessed” is general, and just fine. Saying “God is good” is just plain dumb.

      • Dani says:

        But some people actually believe that. I think it’s okay to say that in reference to yourself/your beliefs as long as you aren’t shoving it down anyone’s throat.

  12. Joy says:

    So does she work. Has she ever?

  13. CatMom says:

    He seems exhausting and dumb as a bag of hammers, but good for them, I guess.

  14. Beadlady says:

    I must be missing something. I often state these things. I’ve been happily married for 28 years. When folks ask how married life is, I do comment that God is good and that I’m very blessed. Yes, both of these people are wealthy, but I don’t see a problem with his comments. It’s nice to see people happy.

    • Ann says:

      Sorry, but it IS a privileged and tone-deaf response. I get that in your context, you’re presumably speaking with friends who aren’t going to take it that way. But in this scenario, the implication is that God prefers some people’s happiness to others, and that only certain groups get to be “blessed”.

  15. Annie says:

    I loathe him. I think I used to tolerate him because of his first wife. Now he’s dead to me.

  16. Lils says:

    It’s at times like these I love this comment section.

    Yes, he’s a homophobic, animal-abusing, fake, dumb dude. Glad we all agree lol

    Hoping he fades as soon as his contract with Marvel is over.

  17. Shana says:

    I really admired him during parks and recreations days when he was this goofy kind guy with a great sense of humor. Him talking about church is such a turnoff

  18. Amelie says:

    I don’t know much about Katherine Schwarzenegger but she’s a Kennedy. I doubt she will be content just being “the wife” at home. She might not go into politics but Kennedys are usually pretty active people in general. Her mother Maria Shriver has worked in journalism, been active politically, and done a lot of charity work so I don’t think Katherine wants to just be a housewife. She’s written a couple of books which may not be super impressive. But she’s also super involved with animal welfare which is interesting given that Chris kills and eats his own pigs so… not sure how long this will last. But yeah I don’t think she’s going to take a backseat to Chris.

    • Ann says:

      Is she a vegetarian, though? I’m not trying to be a smart a**, just thinking that it’s not necessarily contradictory to be an animal rights activist and eat meat. Factory farms are horrible and no one should be supporting them, but raising your own livestock isn’t necessarily the same thing.
