Chris Pratt praises his wife Katherine for giving him a ‘healthy daughter’

On Wednesday, Chris Pratt did an Instagram post about how much he loved his wife Katherine Schwarzenegger. I didn’t read it at the time, but I saw People Magazine’s headline about it and I just rolled my eyes without clicking. Thursday came around and I guess everyone decided that Chris Pratt was a major douche for the same Instagram post. I chuckled to myself, because yeah, that guy is THE WORST. Even then, I was like “I bet it’s not even that bad, people just hate him in general, it doesn’t matter what he says.” Reader, I was wrong. The IG is awful!! This is what he wrote:

Guys. For real. Look how she’s looking at me! I mean. Find you somebody that looks at you like that!! You know!? We met in church. She’s given me an amazing life, a gorgeous healthy daughter, she chews so loudly that sometimes i put in my ear buds to drown it out, but that’s love! She helps me with everything. In return, periodically, I open a jar of pickles. That’s the trade. Her heart is pure and it belongs to me. My greatest treasure right next to my Ken Griffey Jr Upper Deck Rookie card. Which if you know, you know is saying a lot. It’s her birthday in about 6 weeks. So if I don’t get her anything, I’ll tell her to look back on this post. Love you honey.

[From Chris Pratt’s IG]

“We met in church” – hork. “Look how she’s looking at me!” – look at how much this simple baby machine adores me! “She chews so loudly that sometimes i put in my ear buds to drown it out…” – I would kill him if I was married to him. His whole thing about how SHE (a sentient human woman) is his “greatest treasure” alongside a baseball card. But the worst is absolutely this: “She’s given me an amazing life, a gorgeous healthy daughter” – imagine if their daughter had not been born “healthy.” Considering he and Anna Faris share custody of their son Jack, who has health issues and special needs, it’s especially disgusting. THROW OUT THE WHOLE MAN.

Pratt’s IG was so bad that people were bringing up Anna Faris and praising her for getting out while the getting was good.

    I’ve been waiting for this post ever since I saw Pratt trending on twitter last night.

    • Mira says:

      Same here, and at the same time, I’m already getting annoyed at the inevitable “he was just joking” and “you can’t say ANYTHING anymore” type of replies.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        while I think the post is gross, I think he was going for the Ryan Reynolds/Blake Lively kind of joking that they have on Instagram and failed spectacularly, because he’s just not as funny as Reynolds, and Reynolds’ posts are self-deprecating as well as teasing his wife.

        ETA: however, the comment about a “healthy daughter” was just cruel.

      • Wiglet Watcher says:

        The healthy daughter comment was very awful. Saying her heart belongs to him was also awful. Pratt will forever be the worst Chris.

        I’m not a Farris fan, but she’s held herself very well since during and since their split.

        I think Pratt is clueless.

      • Jenn says:

        whatWHAT?, my thoughts exactly — it’s an attempt at pulling off Ryan Reynolds’s “lovable d*ckhead” act. Instead, it’s flat and honestly creepy (in the light of my own fundamentalist Christian upbringing)

      • BC says:

        I’m torn about the “healthy daughter” comment. By torn I mean from is he just the most inartful insert foot in mouth kind of guy or did he mean it in a cruel way, cause adding healthy in that message just seems odd, if you didn’t mean it. I’m doubly torn cause he seems really stupid too. Hard to say on that account though. That being said most of the rest of the post made me throw up in my mouth a bit. If he’s trying for the Ryan Reynolds/Blake Lively posts he’s failing miserably. Ugh, how did she fall for a guy who’d compare you to a baseball card, and also do that on a public forum. I know she’s not all that big of a prize either but come on.

    • Char says:

      This post makes all the Justin Timberlake “ME ME ME” posts about his wife sound ok. Wow.

      • purple prankster says:

        This was so passive aggressive, it’s like he doesn’t really have anything nice to say about her as a person. My guess is he married for connections, and he is less attracted to and more irritated by her as time goes by. That’s how the post reads to me. I’m also guessing that he’s trapped himself in this political marriage and image and it’s wearing him down. That dig at Anna and his little boy was breathtakingly cruel, and I say he did it on purpose.

      • CoffeePants says:

        Purple Prankster—oh, this is typical Evangelical Christian wife praise. I was raised in that community, and, yup! Women don’t have a lot of respect as people.

      • Lauren says:

        purple – exactly. 100%. all of it.

  2. Jessamine says:

    Worst Chris.

  3. TheOriginalMia says:

    Ugh. The worst Chris hands down.

  4. Sue says:

    “We met in church.” Isn’t he a part of Scientology’s younger sibling, the Hillsong cult?

    • Jessie Quinton says:

      Yup. Homophobic/racist AF.

    • Mac says:

      She needs to be deprogrammed stat.

      • Bettyrose says:

        That’s what I got out of this too, but I also don’t get it. She a descendant of America’s premiere political dynasty. And that’s not even counting her father the mega star and former governor of the state that’s one of the largest economies on the planet. She’s connected beyond all our wildest dreams. What why and how did she end up in a cultish church married to a massive dbag?

      • ExpectationvsReality says:

        @Bettyrose She’s a religious fanatic who doesn’t have much going on with her life, I think she’s pretty satisfied being married to, unfortunately, a successful actor. She’s never gotten attention like this before, I bet they are just as bad as each other.

      • BC says:

        I’m just so curious, how did a Kennedy, well known Catholics, become whatever they are? I’m not all yeah yeah for Catholics, but this reads as crazy Christian subservient wives to me.

      • HeyJude says:

        Yeah, I was honestly surprised she got into this with him. North eastern-based traditional Catholics (so strong habitual Catholics but not exactly against divorce, gay people, etc.) don’t typically look at these Christian fundies well.

        Think about that for a second. They’re even too crazy for Catholics.

        I grew up in the same circles as “Kennedy Catholics” and this pairing was extremely surprising to me for that reason.

        Hillsong and such pop culturizing churches are seen as vain, self-glorifying, false idolatry typically. And fundie churches seen as cults that worship their human leaders, not God.

        I’d be shocked to see this marriage lasts because of this fundamental disconnect of their backgrounds TBH.

    • Betsy says:


    • K says:

      It’s interesting how he went from his first wife with this silly, sexy, raunchy persona, to one who appears so safe, vanilla, wholesome. “Pure” and churchy, is how he praises her here. He could compliment her like: “This strong woman brought our wonderful daughter into the world,” but he says, “she’s given me a daughter.” It’s all about congratulating himself. I think with Anna, it wasn’t all about him, so he turned to religion and a more conservative lifestyle for an ego boost. Lame.

      • Bettyrose says:

        @K -you’ve nailed it. He didn’t want to be in the shadow of another fab attention pulling woman. And Katherine really does look like the perfect Stepford wife with those adoring gazes, but I don’t get it. How did she survive a childhood with the fathernator and up with this manchild?

      • Jan90067 says:

        Ahhhhhhnold is a misogynistic a-wipe who cheated on his wife multiple times, most famously getting caught with the maid, who had his “love child”. Hardly a role model for what a “good man” looks like.

        He was also an *awful* governor.

      • Bettyrose says:

        @jan That’s my point exactly. Note my use of the word survive. She’s no doe eyed naïf. She’s intimately familiar with both political and Hollywood circles and all the associated scandals and drama. She couldn’t possibly have been impressed by Pratt’s stardom. So that suggests they had a genuine connection. But that doesn’t correlate with these pictures and that gawd awful post. So what gives?

      • Meg says:

        I think you nailed it
        A guy with two franchises, a star on the walk of fame already-yet he needs another ego boost?

      • ton says:

        He said that she did all the work. She gave it to him. He isn’t even taking credit for his part. Okay he has a special needs kids but he isn’t putting that child down. He is saying his wife is perfect and we all know no one is and he said she chews loud and he loves her anyway.

      • Deering24 says:

        So, she married a man just like dear old dad. Ugh.

  5. Vic says:

    My read was that Chris was trying to go the Ryan Raynolds route (with his humor towards Blake), but some nasty truths surfaced…

    • Jessie Quinton says:

      Pratt doesn’t have Reynold’s charm or the public love currency to get away with this kind of post.

    • Belli says:

      He missed by miles. The Ryan and Blake thing is exaggeratedly over the top and they both do it. Crisp just threw in some digs while ostensibly praising his wife.

    • Plums says:

      that was my read too, but the fact that it’s been read as totally sincere means it’s a total fail, if that was his intention. right wing evangelical white couples post shit like this sincerely all the time.

      also, the healthy girl part felt at least horribly thoughtless, if not intentionally cruel. Men praise their wives with “healthy baby” all the time, I think it’s stupid, but whatever, but when you have a child who was born with severe health complications and has special needs, that’s such an absolutely shit thing to say.

    • Christine says:

      That was my thought as well. But he’s so unlikable and gross that it just gives off skeevy controlling vibes.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      @ Vic, no. This is pure nasty, narcissistic behaviour. This guy is an enormous POS.

      • dc says:

        But isn’t traditional Hollywood filled with narcissistic men like him? Isn’t that why he’s getting the jobs? It’s not like he’s even a halfway decent actor.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      whoops, should have read further before I commented above. I agree he was trying for Reynolds/Lively but he’s not nearly as funny/charming as Reynolds, and Reynolds is also self-deprecating, which we know pRAT will never be.

      and yes, the “healthy” thing was cruel.

      • Jaded says:

        OK steam came out of my ears at the “healthy daughter” reference. That whole IG post is sickening, but given his son with Anna Farris has health issues that comment is lower than an ant’s a-hole. Run Katherine….RUN AWAYYYYY!!!

      • Jenn says:

        lol @whatWHAT, I “reply as I go,” too. Yeah, Ryan Reynolds radiates “guy with an emotionally-absent father who finally became his best self after therapy and kids.” He is extremely lovable and relatable, AND genuinely funny, none of which has been true of Chris ever since he grew abs and opened his mouth.

  6. Jessie Quinton says:

    Crisp Ratt is the absolute worst. If they kill Starlord off in the next movie Guardian’s movie I wouldn’t miss him one bit.

    • Sandy says:

      Oh yes please. I’m so with you on that.

      • Dee Kay says:

        I don’t even think that Star Lord would be missed given that all the Guardians carry equal weight, story-wise. Maybe Gamora and Rocket are more out-in-front but they would lead the Guardians no problem if there were no more Star Lord. And isn’t Thor kind of an honorary Guardian now? So with Thor (even if just in cameos), Rocket, Gamora, Nebula, Drax, and Mantis, that’s a tremendous cast for any future GotG movies.

  7. Woke says:

    The whole post is weird but the healthy daughter part people are overreacting. People express how they’re grateful for a healthy baby all the time.

    • NorthernGirl_20 says:

      It’s because he has a son with Anna Farris who was born with health problems.

    • Jessie Quinton says:

      Yes, but the whole post just reads like Anna Faris/Jack erasure.

      • PS says:

        ….how? He’s doing a birthday post to his wife, where he would naturally mention the daughter they have together. HOW is that “Anna/Jack” erasure? People are really reaching here, it just shows how much they hate Chris that they’re willing to tear him apart for….what? Being Christian and saying things you might not agree with? I don’t even check for Chris Pratt like that but damn, one bday post has bored housewives in an uproar lmao

    • Keats says:

      My knee-jerk reaction was similar, that it’s just something that people say about new babies. But he is the father of a son with health problems, so it either reveals complete cruelty or that he’s a pretty uninvolved father and never really handled that aspect of parenting. (Or the third most likely option, he’s as stupid as they come).

      Also, gotta say Hillsong has the energy of “God doesn’t love people with medical problems as much as he does healthy people.” It’s another side of the many sided prosperity gospel bs and I hate it more than anything.

      • Barrett says:

        I developed health issues later in life and have had friends w healthy babies and friends w Babies w special needs or health issues. The world can be unfair. We cant control genes. I did cringe when he said that. It has to be a huge pain point w/Anna. I am very empathetic, can feel the pain.

      • Steph says:

        Uninvolved and stupid. Yes, she carried and delivered the baby, but at that stage health issues are usually genetic. Genes come from both parents. So it comes off life he’s blaming Anna Faris and taking no responsibility at all.

    • Betsy says:

      Yes, they do, but in light of the fact that his first child was born very premature and has ongoing health problems and this whole gnarly post, it looks like he’s saying that *this* beautiful good wife gave him a *quality* child, not like that *other* wife who gave him a *defective* model. It’s really offensive.

    • Impress says:

      Nope, when you have a child with special needs you dont just spout that without giving it a second thought. I cant imagine how hurt Anne must feel.
      On a side rant. My spouses ex wife is insinuating im the reason my two babies are on the spectrum. Exes can be so cruel.

      • Sigmund says:

        I agree. I think the comment was awful in light of the circumstances. I can only imagine how it made Anna feel (and how Jack may already feel, if his father has made his feelings known in the past about his new, shiny, “better” child). Hopefully they keep Jack away from social media, at least.

      • LadyMTL says:

        MTE. I can understand saying it in a general ‘that’s what everyone says’ way but not when his son has special needs. It means he either didn’t give a second’s thought to how his words could hurt, or he didn’t care.

      • EveV says:

        I’m so sorry you’re going through that. Obviously, the ex is jealous of you/the kind of relationship that you have with her ex or she wouldn’t say anything like that.

        As for Chris, I cringed at the way he said it, as if women have control over the healthiness of the baby they deliver (ugh, wtf, I feel dirty just typing that). When Kaiser brought up jack, it makes it a million times worse. What the hell was he thinking?! Also, I agree with another commenter that it is very interesting how he went from someone like Anna Farris to the most vanilla woman on the planet. It’s almost like once he became a big movie star, he felt he needed the most wholesome, vanilla woman he could find. Idk, just another reason he is the worst Chris, I guess.

      • Another Anna says:

        Impress, I’m sorry your spouse’s ex is so horrible. I’m on the spectrum and, while that has caused some physical health issues, overall I think I’m a delight. I’m sure your babies will grow up to be wonderful people and that ex can go jump into a lake.

      • Erin says:

        Exactly! As a mom of a child with significant special needs from birth you don’t just throw that in without a thought. It would’ve been just as easy to say gorgeous daughter, especially because it’s not like she is a newborn. The healthy part was really the worst part for me and the part that stuck out the most and I am aware that it is because of my own child and experience but he has that same experience being a father to a child with special needs. I can’t imagine if I were to get divorced and my husband went and had another child with someone else and posted this shit or even said it. But that’s because my husband isn’t an asshole.

      • BC says:

        I’d say generally you are right, but a few things. One he may be very disconnected with it all about his son and the thought didn’t cross his mind. Two he’s really stupid. I try not to delve into the true meaning of really stupid people. It’s not a great place to dwell. Besides the rest of the post is bad too, just in other ways.

      • Ann says:

        Exactly. It’s so callous and smug and gross. I was just saying how much I can’t stand Chris Pratt to some friends, and then I come back to read this. He earned my dislike of him. I liked him when he was on Parks and Rec, but he’s revealed himself to be such a douche since then. Ugh.

    • CindyP says:

      The kid was born in August, 2020, so she’s over a year old. You say that about a newborn, not a toddler. The post is creepy; he’s looking adoringly at the camera, she’s looking adoringly at him

    • Becks1 says:

      That was my first reaction – eh, healthy daughter, that’s a normal thing to be happy for – but I didn’t realize his son Jack with Anna Faris had health issues. That makes it a really low blow. It actually makes it sound like the reason he and Anna broke up is because she did not give him a “healthy child.”

      (I know that health issues with a child can be a huge stressor and a huge financial burden and can be a strain on a marriage, but this comment feels more black and white than that. “oh Katherine is better bc she gave me a healthy child.”)

      • Nic919 says:

        Same here. I didn’t know about his other child so it makes that very cringe.

        The whole thing is bad because you can’t tell if he’s going for funny or is serious. He hasn’t earned the benefit of the doubt because he was such a baby with the worst Chris thing and generally seems humourless.

      • Ana170 says:

        Anna and Chris reportedly split in part because he was getting deeper into the church. Anna’s not that religious. It sounds like he found a wife that fits his deeper connection to the Bible. That’s icky in itself. And, honestly, the “healthy daughter” comment may be common but knowing what we now know, no one should still be looking at the Bible for information on babies and child-rearing. I should say what we should know. He probably actually thinks the baby is healthy strictly because of Katherine. A lot of men are like that. I remember people online raging at Vanessa Bryant for only giving Kobe girls. Sex education in school is a must.

      • Meg says:

        Yes fundie cultures blame everything on women hence it being so appealing to men

    • court says:

      I have a kid with a disability. Chris should know better.

  8. Cessily says:

    His post broke my heart for his son who is the very definition of a warrior.

    • Jan90067 says:

      Also for when his son is old enough to get on the computer and read things about his father, and what he said. Makes your heart ache for this little guy. Hope he is surrounded by people who love and value him always.

    • Kay says:

      THIS. And the comments here are also so telling, because we all follow gossip and many didn’t know about his son with Anna. Especially since his daughter was born, he’s been all about his little storybook family with little to no mention of his son. So the erasure was already there, and throwing in the healthy bit is extra awful. I had a scare at 30 weeks where we had to go to L&D, and I was TERRIFIED…just in the couple of hours where we had to get some tests done/wondered if I was going to have to deliver early, I worried that I’d failed my son and that my body wasn’t able to keep him safe. THANK GOODNESS it was fine, and he’s still cooking at 35 weeks, but I can only imagine what a gut punch it was to Anna to read that, the insinuation being that SHE couldn’t give him a healthy baby, much less what Jack will think if/when he is able to read it…

      • Erin says:

        Yep, you have another son and this post is supposed to be how amazing your wife and family is and how happy you are but you don’t even mention him.

  9. mindy_dopple says:

    The first thing I thought of when I saw this post was how fucked up it was considering his son seems to have special needs. Drag him internet! Not to mention the other stuff, her heart is pure and it’s mine? We met at church. God if I was Anna Farris I would roll my eyes SO HARD and thank Twitter.

  10. BlueSky says:

    I’m waiting for all his Marvel bros to come to his defense again. Remember all the hoopla over us deciding he was the worst Chris and all his bros were rushing to his defense but yet were silent when Brie Larson was getting harassed online?

    • Betsy says:

      White male privilege is a real tight knit club.

    • Plums says:

      god, I can’t get over how tone deaf and OTT that entire reaction was. the post was a JOKE. The fact that Marvel or Pratt’s agent or whoever reacted to it in that way did way more PR damage than the post itself.

    • lucy2 says:

      Yeah he’s going to follow up this BS with even more BS, crying out people are mean, and his costars will rush to his defense again (while ignoring the racism and sexism other costars have had to deal with).

  11. tanesha86 says:

    All of Twitter dragged him yesterday and it was glorious. This guy just keeps proving our feelings about him valid

  12. NCWoman says:

    That poor woman married a worse version of her father. Toxic masculinity wrapped in Christianity is a special kind of revolting.

    • minx says:

      She wanted Pratt and she got him. I find Katherine Schwarzenegger irritating. She’s a dilettante who has never really worked, she wrote a few dippy books. It’s surprising because both of her parents are extremely hard working, motivated people.

      • Libellule says:

        Not sure why it’s surprising. Many hardworking parents have children that do not possess that kind of work ethic – see the Middletons

      • Bettyrose says:

        That’s definitely a trend. I can name a more than one person I grew up with who continue to live off their parents good graces. Meaning their parents worked hard to achieve financial security but the next generation failed to launch. IDK of it’s affluenza or just that some people never mature to adulthood, but it’s only the ones from financially secure homes that’s we hear about. Others disappear into the obscurity of transient lives.

      • court says:

        She’s always irked me for that reason. All that education, connections, and did absolutely nothing in life. It was embarrassing.

  13. MCV says:

    The cringe of that post…

  14. LaUnicaAngelina says:

    He’s so fucking terrible and to be so insensitive regarding his son (especially) and Anna. He bought into his own hype with that narcissistic post. Gross.

  15. Oh_Hey says:

    Worst Chris earns his title again.
    There was always some weird undercurrent of his and Anna’s relationship post him getting really famous that he really wanted to be the star and hated being second fiddle to her in any way. Then there’s the whole Jennifer Lawrence thing. People thought they might both be not so nice at the time then they abruptly split. I was completely unsurprised when they broke up and continue to be unsurprised at which of them is actually the actively terrible one.

    • Summergirl says:

      What’s the Jennifer Lawrence thing?

      • smcollins says:

        IIRC Anna thought that maybe Chris & Jennifer had an affair while filming Passengers but JL adamantly denied it and was hurt by the very idea of it (I really don’t think they did, they barely mustered any chemistry on-screen).
        As far as his post….yeah….it’s pretty problematic. I don’t think he was being malicious, though, just extremely tone deaf and utterly thoughtless. It was pretty awesome how everyone rallied around Jack & Anna.

      • bettyrose says:

        Edited after seeing Kumquat’s post below. Now that’s a plausible theory.

    • Kumquat says:

      I’m starting to think Worst Chris purposely gave Anna reason to suspect an affair with JL because it benefits him on multiple levels. 1) it gets his name in the press 2) it romantically links him with a huge star, making him appear desirable 3) it laid the groundwork for him to later act like Anna is some paranoid, hysterical, jealous woman whom nobody could reasonably expect him to remain married to.
      And of course then the re-marry to the younger, compliant woman who just happens to be the daughter of his childhood idol.

      • BC says:

        I think it’s funny that someone would think he’d be smart enough to come up with this kind of thing. He’s not only the worst Chris, but let’s be honest he’s the dumbest Chris. I’m counting Chris Hemsworth who bragged about putting napkins in his kids shoes so she could be tall enough to ride a ride and then realizing as she almost slips out of the harness when it’s moving, it probably wasn’t a good idea. My favorite is Robert Downey Jr. reaction to this story while Hemsworth says it. It’s a combination of wt… with you are an idiot. Yet I still say Christ Pratt is dumber.

  16. milliemollie says:

    Wow, what a POS!! Jack deserves better.

  17. Prissa says:

    What a disgusting person. I also didn’t like this:
    “It’s her birthday in about 6 weeks. So if I don’t get her anything, I’ll tell her to look back on this post.”

    It’s ALL about him. Sickening.

    • Kebbie says:

      “I’ll tell her to look back on this post where she’s gazing at me adoringly and I’m talking about having to put in ear buds because she chews so loudly.”

      Happy Birthday to her!!!

    • PS says:

      …… it’s a joke….he’s joking…. lmao you just wanted to be mad today, huh? #triggered

  18. El says:

    On another site, someone pointed out his anniversary Instagram post. It isn’t any better. Who celebrates their anniversary with two pictures of their wife clipping their toe nails?

    • purple prankster says:

      I wondered about that too. He seems to enjoy demeaning her in his posts. Some might say it’s supposed funny but Crisp seems like that guy who says he was just joking when he wasn’t.

      • iconoclast59 says:

        “(Pratt) seems like that guy who says he was just joking when he wasn’t.”

        THIS. And when you say, “I’m sorry, but that’s not funny,” he gaslights you: “Jeez, you have no sense of humor. Can’t take a little joke.”

        I don’t let people like that into my life anymore. And I laugh all the time, so my sense of humor is just fine, thankyouverymuch.

      • Kate says:

        Bingo. The whole post is misogynistic trash and if the joke is supposed to be “I don’t really feel that way and I actually help her a lot at home and adore her for who she is and not what she does for me but wouldn’t it be funny if I just pretend to be self-absorbed and unhelpful like every sitcom husband since the invention of tv” it’s not funny and he didn’t execute it well.

  19. Hyperbolme says:

    I feel like the end is supposed to be satire, but the beginning is so tone deaf that it’s hard for me to be sure. Seems like his brand of “comedy” -which might actually be amusing if the person who said it was more a Ryan Reynolds type who had that kind of relationship with his wife but clearly loves her and treats her well.

    I’m already pre-annoyed at the impending Uncancellation Bro-pology Tour where Chris tells Joe Rogan, “Dude, obviously I got her a real present! Can’t anyone take anything less seriously for half a second? This is what’s wrong with the world today” and gets away scot-free on his white man’s justice train.

    I read it last night and my reaction was not pretty. He’s terrible.

  21. Kentuckygirl says:

    This is a bit much. His post is cringey, sure. But the healthy daughter part is about Katherine. She is the mother of his daughter, she gave him that daughter, he is praising a Katherine. People reference healthy children all the time. He obviously loves his son and this is taken a bit far. If the post were about Anna, he would probably reference his son, as I’m sure he did many times when they were married. Geez.

    • Katherine says:

      Sorry I can’t take any comment seriously that uses the disgusting misogynistic phrasing “gave him” in regards to a woman having a baby. That’s one of several issues in his idiotic post. We’re not vessels who gift babies to our husbands. Gross.

    • Jessie Quinton says:

      Katherine stop capping for your man!

    • Kitten says:

      You might wanna defer to the disabled community on this matter and perhaps just sit this one out.

    • Merricat says:

      If you are the parent of a special needs child, you know what you’re saying when you “thank” a woman for the healthy one. He is soulless.

    • lucy2 says:

      If his daughter were his only child, it probably wouldn’t have caught many people’s attention, but given that his eldest child has had numerous health issues from birth, it’s especially insensitive. Plus the rest of the post is so cringey too.

      I’m curious what happened to him. The P&R cast seemed to like him and thought he was hilarious, but in recent years he’s just become so pretentious and holier than thou. Is it fame? The church he goes to? Or was he always like this and just hid it better.

      • PS says:

        You really sound like you hold his religion against him – you mention it often in any post that’s about him. What about his religion makes you so uncomfortable, so bigoted?

        I agree his post is cringy but talking about his daughter – that he has with the wife his post is dedicated to – is not an erasure of his son. Same way if he talked about his son in a post and didn’t mention his daughter – they are not mutually exclusive.

      • Otaku fairy says:

        Are people still pretending that Christians are some type of marginalized group in America?

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      Your internalized misogyny is showing.

      Someone had to tell you.

    • Jaded says:

      She didn’t “give him his daughter”, JFC they had a baby TOGETHER! Reminds me of that godawful song by Paul Anka … “She’s Having MY Baby”. The year is 2021 BTW, not 1951.

    • PS says:

      I agree with you – people just want to be mad and bc they already don’t like him, nothing he says or does is ever right. I guarantee if someone’s “fave” did a similar post, they wouldn’t bat an eye. Also, people’s interpretation of this post – and yelling about with their whole damn chest lmao – really shows how little people read for comprehension. Nothing about his post is problematic bc simple reading comprehension, the only thing I felt was that the post was cringy, but that’s just bc I wouldn’t post things like that about my loved ones but hey, that’s me.

      • WithTheAmerican says:

        You seem awfully invested for someone telling everyone else to chill.

      • Jaded says:

        I resent being told it’s only “my interpretation” of his post. If Mr. Jaded had posted something like that I’d be hurt and insulted, and I’m sure Anna Farris doesn’t find it amusing that he referenced his “healthy” daughter. He’s an ass. Period.

  22. Nina says:

    Ladies, I’m curious if anyone can explain this. Chris’s wife is from Kennedy’s clan, or at least her Mom is. Aren’t Kennedys well known Democracts and weren’t they very progressive in politics? How come Maria’s husband is Republican then? And how come her daughter has such conservative values and she married such a white wash conservative dude?

    I’m not an American so this question may sound stupid, forgive me.

    • Jessie Quinton says:

      Maria’s ex (Arnold) is Republican, but he’s far more progressive than the other Republicans in office. The Kennedy’s are a famously Catholic family, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they were brought up with those values.

    • Kitten says:

      This happens all the time in families though. The majority of my family is left-leaning but I still have an insane Trumpster aunt. Almost every leftist family has at least one.

    • minx says:

      Well, Democrats don’t always marry Democrats. That’s just life.

    • lucy2 says:

      Maria and Arnold got together like 40 years ago, maybe two parties weren’t as divided back then? And he’s more progressive than most Rs, and coming from an old wealthy family she’s possibly a bit more conservative than many Ds. I bet they kind of met in the middle.
      Katherine seems super into traditional, conservative stuff. Sometimes people just go their own way, and are influenced by something outside of their parents.

    • Nic919 says:

      Schwartznegger was more of a Ronald Reagan type Republican and he got in as Governor after a recall because of California’s odd rules. When Arnold first came to the US in the late 70s Reagan would have been a running for office and then president for so long. Also the anti communist bonafides would have been attractive to a guy who grew up in post war Austria.

      The move to the religious right is more recent and Arnold is clearly not one of those types. He has also been open about supporting vaccines and so as he’s never been a social conservative, he was the type of Republican that Maria Shriver was fine with.

      • Diamond Rottweiler says:

        Sorry to have to nitpick, but Reagan was really the first president to fully embrace the religious right. He and his administration purposely kicked the door open for the narrowing separation between church and state Americans live with now, empowering the evangelical movement (who were committed to racial segregation legislation as much or more than anti-choice activism) as part of his right wing voting strategy. Google Reagan & Bob Jones. There’s a direct line between what Reagan started and what Trump has done.

      • Nic919 says:

        When Arnold first came to the US, Reagan wasn’t yet president and the religious right stuff was not as open in mainstream media. And he would never have won 1984 in the landslide that he did had the religious right been as arrogant as they are now. Pat Buchanan was the one viewed as connected to them and Reagan was presented as the less strident option. The media capped for Reagan and hid most of the connections. Reagan did not advertise his connections to the religious right in the same way republicans do now. And Bush sr as VP tempered this view as well because he was a technocrat and didn’t play the religion card as his own son did a few decades later.

        So for a guy immigrating from Austria in the late 70s, he would have seen the rose coloured version of Republicanism sold by Reagan at the time and not see them as the tied to the evangelical church types as they are now.

      • Diamond Rottweiler says:

        I feel you, NIC919, and appreciate your nuanced follow up. I just loathe Old Purple Head so much that I feel like it’s a public service to remind people what a horror show “gift that keeps on giving” he actually was, given the present MSM hagiography of Reagan, even by some Dems.

    • BecauseOfCourse says:

      Not a stupid question at all. Maria Shriver always made a point of stressing that she was a Shriver and they were related to the Kennedys but were not the Kennedys, if that makes sense. Her family got all of the benefits of the Kennedy name without those pesky liberal values.

    • Sofia says:

      Arnold allegedly wasn’t accepted by the family when he first started dating Maria because of his party but he won them over. Plus he’s not really a Trump-esque Republican and the Kennedys aren’t totally on the left (I would say centre-left) anyways so it’s a lot easier to get along with someone like him than it would be to get along with a Trumplike Republican.

      • North of Boston says:

        Was it that he was a Republican? Or was it that he was a non-Irish immigrant body-builder / actor she met in the 70s?

    • Jaded says:

      @Nina – not a dumb question at all and thanks for asking. Historically the Kennedy women always stood by their men despite epic philandering from pretty much all of them. Going back to old Joe Kennedy (JFK’s dad), he had countless mistresses including his secretary Janet Des Rosiers, actresses Janet Fontaine and Gloria Swanson. His wife Rose just silently put up with it, kept having babies and going to church five times a day. Katherine’s father was horrible adulterer and fathered a child with the housekeeper. She forgave him. A perfect example of generational male toxicity.

  23. sunny says:

    Pratt is interesting to me because he is one of those celebrities who when people meet them, they talk about how lovely he is(even before he got majorly famous). But he also seems like a terrible person who does stuff like this. First off, a post about your wife, ostensibly to celebrate her where you start off with how she adores you is terrible. The bit about a “healthy” daughter is trash. I don’t mind the Jack or Anna erasure as it is a post about and for Katherine and not a Mother’s day post (and look how the internet has dragged stepmoms see Giselle) but that particular adj in the context to having another child with health struggles is truly awful. Worst Chris indeed.

  24. harla says:

    I really hate the “her heart is pure and belongs to me” line. Her heart, pure or not, belongs to her!!!

    • Mindy_Dopple says:

      Why does this part make me flitch/cringe too? Is it because we can guess what pure means in the context of his church? It’s the need to define something so specifically as pure? Labels and such? I kept thinking to myself, is my heart pure? Do I care if my husband’s is pure? I hate that word. Also answers to the last two questions – probably not and probably not.

      • harla says:

        I have a male friend who frequently describes various women we both know as having “pure souls” and it really used to bother me as I was never described that way. But then I realized that it’s not up to anyone else to decide whether or not my heart or soul is “pure” (it’s not but that’s a whole different story).

    • Anne says:

      That is the second worst part. Taking ownership of any part of anyone’s body is gross.

    • Seraphina says:

      Yes, and it was all about him. Me, me, me. Good grief and massive eye roll. Get over yourself dude. That pic where she is gazing at him adoringly like a puppy is just gross after reading what he said.

    • HandforthParish says:

      That’s the part I was coming to comment on!
      The healthy kid part is awful, but ‘her heart is pure and it belongs to me’ has a super creepy possessive virgin fetish vibe about it.

      • Ania says:

        Exactly, pure heart means inexprienced virginal wife who can be moulded into whatever he wishes because she has no life experience.
        He’s not interested in who she is and accomodating her needs because her married her to be exactly what HE needs.
        I had male friends like that in my circle, not great guys and non of my gitlfrieds were interested because they were old enough to see through their bullshit. Guess what? All
        of those guys decided to date women 10 years younger and they succeded. Those girls were delighted that they were saying guys with jobs because their friends were still poor students.

    • adri3nne says:

      YES this was the worst line to me, I cringed so hard. Her heart is pure? And it BELONGS to him??? He managed to come off as super puritan and possessive and creepy with just one line.

  25. Belli says:

    The “healthy daughter” part was disgusting when his son has health problems.

    And even in a post meant to praise his wife he had to neg her and be like, “she chews so loud and I might not even get her a birthday present”. Ugh.

    Worst Christ reminds us every day why he’s Worst Chris.

    • Lizzie says:

      Omg, I didn’t realize his son has health problems. My opinion Of him just took a nose dive.

    • minx says:

      He’s such a jerk, really unbelievable.

    • Belli says:

      The “she’s wonderful, I’m useless” thing that so many men do when they’re trying to make it seem like they’re praising their wives makes me itch.

      It’s the combination subtext of “look what a great prize (object) I won”, “I put in no effort and I don’t need to because she puts up with me”, “she makes my life easier and in return she gets so bask in my presence”, “I have lowered expectations about my effort so much that she has to wonder whether I, I millionaire, will bother to do anything for her birthday”, “I value her as much as this trivial object” etc etc with a veneer of self-deprecating humour that lets him get away with it because on the surface he’s gushing about her whole putting himself down. It’s so so ick.

  26. Coco says:

    Maria Shriver must haaaate him.

  27. Gracie says:

    Hmmm…. I didn’t side-eye the health comment as much as the blatantly narcissistic and misogynistic description of their relationship, but when we see things like this on social media I always assume he got caught with someone else.

    • lucy2 says:

      It is a little weirdly performative, right? Like, there’s definitely some ulterior motive in posting this.

  28. Gigi LaMoore says:

    It’s all about him and he’s allowed her to come along for the ride. She’s ok with it though, as she sits there grinning like a dummy. I saw an IG post of her cutting his toe nails and rubbing his feet so she has devoted herself to serve at the altar of Chris Pratt.

    Miss me with the church part. If she was serious about church, she would develop a relationship with her innocent brother.

  29. grabbyhands says:

    The only thing worse than what he said is watching the inevitable reactions of “ what’s so bad about being happy about having a healthy baby??” as the point goes sailing over their heads.

    It is creepy and gross because he keeps praising her for not much else other than being a good Christian vessel that gave him a HEALTHY kid and catering to every man baby whim. I will never believe that it was an accident that every time he posts about his wife he manages to word it in a way that makes it clear that he thinks he’s been rewarded by God for choosing someone he met at Church, and the big prize is the kid with no health issues. I’ve yet to see him post about his new wife in a way that doesn’t sound like it is his first marriage and child.

    About the only concession I’ll give is that I think it is more a dig at Anna Faris than it is his son, but I doubt that will mean much when he’s old enough to figure out that his own father thinks he’s tainted by his mother. It makes me wonder if something happened – I think it’s curious that he decided to spit out this cringey word salad 6 weeks before her actual birthday.

  30. Léna says:

    He has a very punchable face. Will his marvel buddies come to his defense this time?

  31. Eve says:

    What is that feeling again? Oh, Yes, f*cking validation!

    I remember being one of the few, if not the only one, who said this prick was worth shit.

    “Oh, my god, he braids his wife’s hair”, “He hunts but he eats the game”, “It was just a cat”…

    There, I knew — I just KNEW — some day he’d show his disappoitment regarding his “imperfect” son. It was there, in his eyes. You could see it.

    • Kitten says:

      Giving his incontinent cat away on Twitter was a huge red flag that WAY too many people ignored.

      • Eve says:


        I know.

        I also remember being mocked right and left by a commenter (banned, by the way) here on CB on a particular thread. I was also downvoted on another site — after he relesead the first selfie showing off his (then) new body for Guardians of the Galaxy — because I brought the cat issue up.

      • lucy2 says:

        I was a fan from P&R until the cat thing. And then they had an issue with a dog a bit later. And then he turned out to be…this.

      • Eve says:


        He’s ALWAYS been “this”.

        And I don’t blame you. It happens a lot with people: to mistake the character an actor plays for his actual persona.

        Since I’m a natural born cynic, I’ve never left myself get carried away by “cute” performances.

        P.S.: Please, don’t think I’m patronizing you. It’s a natural reaction from people: thinking their favourite characters are played by equally nice people. It’s normal. *I* am the odd man out.

      • Kitten says:

        Exactly, Eve. And I think we ALL wanted him to be like the character he played in P&R but it was clear early on that he was not that–not even slightly.

    • Kate says:

      I also knew when I saw that video of Katherine’s instagram story last year where she was doing a baking demo and had her camera set up on a tripod and he was playing some indoor golf game in the same room LOUDLY and kept interrupting her with his loud grunts. She just laughed awkwardly each time she got interrupted while waiting for him to notice and stop. Then he comes behind her eating something she baked saying how good it is and trying and failing to be funny because he had to be the center of attention. It was framed as a cute-couple gossip story but all I saw was a woman who can’t yet speak up for herself and a man-child who needs to be center of attention. She clearly adores him and I don’t see any evidence that he sees her as a separate and equal human being who does not exist to orbit him.

    • detritus says:

      I’ve never liked him and now feel very vindicated too. his whole shtick even on Parks and Rec bothered me. hes the frat guy who got fat, then lost it and is now worse than ever.

  32. Jayna says:

    She loves me. Look at the way she looks at me. She gave me. Me, me, me. Where on earth does he go on about he can’t believe he’s with her. How did I get such a beautiful woman and human being. I am so lucky. I love HER so much. I give Blake Shelton his due after reading this. All Blake says in interviews is how amazing Gwen is, how lucky he is. This guy is me, me, me.

  33. Lizzie says:

    Seems to me that someone who wants you to know he met his wife in church would credit God for giving him a healthy child.

  34. Ana Maria says:

    I used to love him in Parks&Recreation, and then when his movie career happened, I couldn’t stand him, I felt like I never really saw him before, I sense this fanatism in him that I very much dislike

  35. Erica says:

    They deserve each other. Back when the internet dragged him for being the worst Chris, she commented on (I think) E!’s instagram page about love and a bunch of BS. This is the same woman that has nothing to do with her half-brother, who was born through no fault of his own. She is also the woman that planned her baby shower for the same day as her half-brothers college graduation. She’s immature and petty. Chris is a religious zealot. And yes, everyone says they wish for a healthy child, but I truly feel like he wrote that about his daughter because he is still annoyed his son was born premature and still has health issues from it. And no mention that Katherine is a good step-mom? The whole post was weird. He was trying to for Ryan Reynolds vibe and it backfired.

    • Lizzie says:

      As I commented above, Mr. religious zealot he forgot to give god credit for a healthy baby. That could make one doubt his religious sincerity.

    • Sofia says:

      When it comes to Joseph, I don’t entirely blame Katherine and her siblings for not wanting to interact with him. But Patrick (her younger brother) and Joseph have been papped hanging out so there’s some communication there.

      Arnold had this child while he was still married to her mother. That’s a massive betrayal. Makes it worse as Patty was not just their maid but someone who watched them grow up and, if reports are to be believed, also went on holiday with the kids. And she sometimes brought Joseph along to hang out with them so there may be a lot of anger and hurt that they’re not over yet.

      It’s not Joseph’s fault in anyway. He didn’t ask to be born. If you said “okay but they need to blame their dad” you would be right. But feelings and emotions are not rational. They’re complicated and don’t always “work” the way we want.

      What I’m trying to say is that there’s a lot of complicated feelings involved and it’s not as black and white as “go accept your half brother”. And it doesn’t make their behaviour towards Joseph justifiable or acceptable, but I can understand why they act the way they do towards him, even if I don’t agree with it.

      • Erica says:

        I don’t agree but I think it’s because I’ve been in almost the same spot as Katherine and her siblings. My dad was with my step-mom, who I adored and was a 2nd mother to me. He cheated, got the other woman pregnant, she had the baby. I found out about a year after he was born. And I wanted to meet him and we were close for a long time. It wasn’t his fault and I was rational enough to know that even though I was barely 12 years old at the time. He was a living breathing baby who was brought into this world through no fault of his own. I hate people like Katherine that preach about love and forgiveness and talk about religion but then do the very opposite of what their religion preaches. My brother and I aren’t in contact anymore due to his hard drug use but I will always love him and I hope that eventually he can turn his life around.

      • Sofia says:

        @Erica: But you’re not Katherine and Katherine is not you. It’s great that you get along with your half sibling but it doesn’t mean everyone else can or will. I don’t think it’s as simple as “Well I get along and I’m rational enough to”. People react very different from each other even if they do through a similar situation.

    • Nope says:

      Can confirm about her immaturity and pettiness. I worked an event for one of her books a few years ago, and she gave me a sneering up-down look–I have an alternative style and she has the make-up/blowout/manicure/dressed to the nines thing, and she made it clear she didn’t think I rated looks-wise. I’ve been in this business for over a decade and I’ve never had a mean-girl experience like that with an author before or since.

      Funnily enough, I because loved him in P&R and GotG and was charmed by the personal brand he had with Anna Faris, the first thing that made me really disappointed with him is when he got together with her. I had a parasocial hope that he wasn’t ‘that dude’ and he’d see through her, and I was increasingly put off as their relationship progressed.

      But yeah, now of the two of them I dislike him more. “Her heart is pure and belongs to me”–his philosophy of marriage as ownership is quasi-medieval. He seems to think he owns her entire inner life. She may well have chosen it/deserve it but I wouldn’t wish this on her.

      • Isa says:

        @nope- doesn’t sound like her heart is really that pure if she’s such an obvious mean girl.

  36. A says:

    I kind of doubt he said the ‘healthy daughter’ thing as a deliberate dig. It makes more sense to me that he just does not consider his words very carefully. But, I don’t think that makes this very much better because his kids are going to start picking up on that kind of differentiation just like everyone on the internet already has.

    For the rest of it, he clearly wanted a Ryan Reynolds vibe but failed because that only works if it’s clear you respect your wife as a person and are self-deprecating. Pratt comes off as more than a little misogynist and not for the first time.

    Good luck to Schwarzenegger and their daughter. It looks like they’ll need it.

  37. Eve says:

    And, PLEASE, I beg of you: let’s stop with this “Worst Chris” already. That’s an insult to the other “Chrises” and as much I dislike most of them, I haven’t hear/read about them doing anything anywhere near the things this a**hole has!!!

    He’s a horrible human being, so that makes him The Worst Chris, The Worst John, The Worst Kevin, The Worst Phil, The Worst Paul, The Worst George, The Worst Anthony, The Worst Tim, The Worst Worst and so on…

  38. Mindy_Dopple says:

    This feels like when a person walks out of the room in a huff after making a big angry statement then comes back in a few seconds later with another point. I am that person.


    Early on in my pregnancy this past year, we had a one week period where we were told our baby might have down syndrome. We had to go see a specialist and during that week between appointments, my emotions were all over the place. My husband and I had several talks where I expressed my heartache and even began to blame myself. These are all very normal reactions. This is all to say that if I had these big emotions and my baby was not diagnosed with down syndrome after all, I can’t imagine the heart to hearts and things Anna Farris confided with Chris her husband and father of their child for years and years.

    So yes, Chris knows exactly what he meant by the word healthy. Lord help Katherine if she ever becomes less than pure, or perfect.

    • greenmonster says:

      Your comment is quite similar to what I was thinking: sure there are things you can do to have a healthy pregnancy/baby. But in the end a kid can still be born with health issues, no matter how healthy you lived before and through the pregnancy. Thanking YOUR WIFE for a healthy baby implies (to me) that it’s solely the mother’s fault if a baby has any health issues.

    • Kay says:

      Absolutely. We had a scare at 30 weeks, and even just a couple of hours of wondering if my body had failed our baby was horrific. I can’t even fathom the long-term emotions that would have come if I had ended up delivering early and our son had ended up with health issues as a result. I imagine that Anna has had to work hard to overcome those emotions, and seeing Chris’s new wife being praised as the perfect pure Christian vessel who COULD “give” him a healthy child has to really sting, no matter how much therapy you’ve had.

  39. A. Key says:

    This dude literally just stepped out of the 18th century I guess.
    I pity his wife.

  40. girl_ninja says:

    My sister and I have had discussions about how the older some get the more conservative they become. And I HAVE seen this play out in a few of my friends. I however have become MORE liberal and have no patience for bible thumping, Jesus Freaks who hide behind God and religion to hold people down and abuse. He seems like such an awful man without a care in the world. I know that Anna isn’t perfect and she has shared her mistakes but I’m happy that she is out of that marriage and sweet Jack deserves a better father and role model. Good luck to that MUCH younger wife of his and their baby girl cause she is gonna need it.

  41. Zapp Brannigan says:

    Chris next time try this:

    “I would like to wish my loving wife a happy birthday. I am grateful she helped expand my heart and family and for the love she shows our daughter and Jack everyday”

    Stop making everything about you. Now I will hunker down and wait for Robert Downey Jr to attack my comment.

  42. Miranda says:

    Last week, my fiancé and I celebrated the 3rd anniversary of him proposing to me (I know that’s weird, but it’s our stand-in for an actual wedding anniversary thanks to COVID-related postponements). His IG post was a photo of me flipping him off, and a paragraph praising my intelligence and humor and thanking me for being a smartass who calls him out on his bullshit when necessary and for being a great stepmom to his daughter. He also added that I have a nice ass. THAT is how you do a healthy, sweet, playful tribute to your partner. If he ever implied that he owned any part of me (outside of a bedroom scenario, anyway…). he’d be sleeping on the couch and eating TV dinners for a while.

    • Mindy_Dopple says:

      and NOT A NEG in sight. Amen and congratulations!!

      • Miranda says:

        Thank you! We can actually be pretty hard on each other at times, but we keep it private. Any mention of our flaws would never find its way into a celebratory post!

    • manda says:

      Another thing I think is interesting, he knew how to lovingly talk about Anna when they were together. He used to talk about how funny she was and how he loved to braid her hair. It was sweet, and I used to like him because of it. This post about his current wife is just weird. I literally gasped when I read the healthy daughter line

      • Miranda says:

        To me, this suggests that this toxic side of him was there all along, but Anna made it clear that she wouldn’t put up with it, so it laid low for awhile. Katherine is younger, and perhaps more docile by nature, and while there’s nothing inherently wrong about that, many men WILL take advantage of it and interpret it as permission to lord over a woman.

        I feel sorry for his daughter. I really hope she doesn’t grow up thinking that this is what a relationship is supposed to look like.

    • Laura-Lee MacDonald says:

      Your partner sounds great, and I hope you two get the ceremony and celebration you want!

      • Miranda says:

        Thanks! He really is the best, and I’m very lucky to have him. And I got a bonus stepdaughter out of the deal! We’re actually going to have a small civil ceremony soon, with just immediate family (but that’s a secret, so shhh!), and then a Catholic ceremony as soon as all of our international guests can safely travel to the US. So we’re getting 2 celebrations we want!

  43. Aud says:

    I can’t believe he hasn’t deleted this. What a terrible post and an insult to his son.

    This is why he and Anna broke up, she didn’t worship his every move and make it all about him.

    Okay this came up in my IG before it took off on Twitter and I was already completely appalled. Every sentence.To get away with the ‘cute’ Ryan Reynolds-like snark you have to have charm and a little bit of intelligence which he obviously must have neither. And that was before I was reminded he had a special needs son which brought it to a higher level of horror. Worse Chris indeed.

  45. Eve says:

    My heart broke when I saw my beloved Mark Ruffalo defending him in this whole “Worst Chris” debate (for the lack of a better word).

    Funny fact (for those who don’t know that already): the site that originally started this “Best Chris” contest/poll ended up with the result that the Best Chris was, in fact, KEANU REEVES!!!

  46. Case says:

    I doubt he meant the “healthy daughter” comment as a dig at Anna or his son who he seems close to, but this is a very weird post. I follow Katherine on Instagram and actually quite like her; can’t figure out her attraction to The Worst Chris.

    • Sofia says:

      I think, like a lot of rich kids, Katherine lacks direction and motivation in life. Why work hard when you don’t need the money? She literally wrote a book about not knowing what to do when she graduated. So she decided she would go the housewife/SAHM/mommy blogger route and got with Chris, who was not only willing to have kids with her but already had a son so she could instantly become a (step)mom.

      As long as he’s not being abusive then if that is works for them, that’s it really. And if the relationship does go South, she’s got family and connections to make sure she can leave with her and her child(ren) ASAP.

  47. jbird4567 says:

    There are so many other adjectives aside from “healthy” he could have used. Also he screams narcissistic. Not armchair diagnosing but anytime a man talks like that “look how she is looking at ME” and treats their wife like an asset to HIM… just gives me the willies. Wow you met in church, that means …. something?

    • Kitten says:

      Exactly. And for all the people who are pointing out that this is how most people talk about a baby, that’s kind of the problem: essentially valuing a child based on their health status. I know it might sound extreme at first glance and I’m not saying that we should immediately chop off the head of everyone who uses that adjective to describe their newborn baby..
      Buuuuuuttt I really think it’s worth examining the words we use to indicate the desirability/usefulness of human beings–words that might further harm or marginalize people who are already greatly marginalized by our society.

      And I understand how a healthy child may feel like a relief especially if it’s a geriatric or high-risk pregnancy but I also think it’s ok to say that you’re excited your baby has arrived and leave it at that–no adjectives needed.

      Of course, it’s all the worse when you take into account the context–both the language he used (“she gave me..”) and the fact that he has a child with another woman who actually suffers from health issues.

    • BC says:

      Yes, I agree the wording on the whole thing is just so Mother crazy christian mixed with frat boy vibe and certainly not funny. Yes many people wish and are happy when you have a healthy child, but combine that with look at her looking at me, I love her as much as my baseball card, the fact he has a child who wasn’t born 100% healthy, it’s all cringe.

  48. Mimi says:


  49. Malina says:

    MEAN ALERT: she looks like she has sixteen-year-old mentality; a case of an eternal daughter who adores her father that has now passed on/ doubled her affections onto Pratt. He could move back in time to the founding fathers era and would fit right in with his mentality. I say they are a good match, even if an eyesore. Let’s just avert our eyes, to each their own.

  50. K says:

    “Giving me “??!! GIVING ME!?! Wtf is this 1621 or 2021? We don’t have to “give you ” our children anymore , you misogynistic, antiquated fart-filled balloon. I am soooooo furious. I just can’t with this.


    This is more about Instagram/social media- I’m nearly 30 and married but I have never dated a guy with an Instagram account. I think only one of my friend’s boyfriend has an insta, and he is notoriously vain and also puts my friend down on his account. I guess in my life I don’t know any men personally that interact with social media this way.

    I’m curious because I think I have this bias where I’m like a guy posting anything on Instagram sounds performative- YET I don’t think that about my girlfriends who post. Which is weird. I don’t know why I’d judge one group of people and not anther for partaking in the same pastime. But for whatever reason if a female friend is on Instagram I don’t blink, but if a guy is, I assume he’s vain and needy.

    (Also please forgive female/male – I intend to be all encompassing and apologize if that shorthand is offensive)

    • Nope says:

      I think Jason Momoa could pull this off without it seeming performative. Maybe that’s just because he hasn’t hit the inevitable backlash yet, but he seems to genuinely adore his wife.

  52. Magick Wanda says:

    I think he is looking forward to holding political office at some point in the not-terribly-distant future. This is setting the stage with the religious ones who believe women should churn out babies and sandwiches and do the bidding of the big, strong man in their lives. He certainly knows his base. Sadly for him, not as many buy into this BS as he thinks.

  53. MerlinsMom1018 says:

    So you’re telling me his “greatest treasure” right next to his Ken Griffey, Jr. Rookie Upper Deck Card is his wife?!?!
    What about your FIRST BORN SON you bottom feeding mouth breather?!?! Or is he just a minor blip in your universe? An unfortunate mistake?!?
    While I am happy they have a healthy baby girl, his ignoring his son is the worst.
    What a foul human

  54. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Omg, even my 15yo son would cringe. Someone asked him recently how ‘his girl’ was doing, and he said, “She’s not MY girl.” The whole oppressing dance men pull with their significant other makes him nauseous… can’t wait to show him this after school lol.

  55. Cat says:

    After a long year of wondering what was wrong with my eldest child (we were worried about her overall emotional estate and her inability to play with other children, among other issues) she’s been diagnosed with moderate autism, and has to begin an intense series of therapies ASAP. Reading this ignorant man’s comment about his healthy daughter without evenacknowledging his eldest son with special needs makes me want to rage. He’s just dumb, isn’t he?

    • Eve says:


      No, he’s NOT just dumb. If only he was just that.

      He’s mean. A truly horrible human being.

  56. Amy Bee says:

    His post told me that his marriage to Ana ended because she didn’t give him a healthy son. He’s a terrible person.

  57. Meg says:

    Something with his face is different to me? Anyone else or is this natural aging?

    • elle says:

      It’s the light of god.

      I jest. But he’s got a look I associate with a lot of middle-aged white men who play christian. Not sure how to describe it – witless? homogenous? self-important? all of the above?

    • PoppedBubble says:

      For me it’s the conservative white man politician’s hair cut.

  58. agnes says:

    Crisp Rat.

  59. Kat says:

    He gives me major I’m the man of the house, my wife is my servant vibes. Gross.

    • Nope says:

      It staggers me that for their anniversary he shared a photo of her extremely pregnant alongside TWO photos of her clipping his toenails. SHE was pregnant and SHE was attending to HIS feet?

  60. Over it says:

    I just can’t believe that 33.4 million people would follow this dick. He is yuck

  61. Emily says:

    I can’t believe I liked him on the OC. Chris Pratt really sucks now.

  62. Kkat says:

    People are wondering why she is married to him.
    It’s exactly because of her political and Hollywood connections.
    They are positioning him for higher office.
    We will see him running for higher offices in about 10 years.
    In the meantime we will see him in lots of superhero save the world movies and wholesome things like Garfield

  63. Kviby says:

    Just want to add a side point that he is so far below a “looks – match” with Katherine
    Same for Anna and the characters April and Ann. And he’s aging fast too. The story line with Ann was pretty good because Ann was seen as the nice character and we understood that she had been attracted to him when he was employed in music… sure. But the April story where a young, educated, pretty fit woman likes some out of shape nothing special older guy in the lowest position at work… what??? And likes him sooooo much. Just gives men the wrong message

  64. Bobbie says:

    He is so painfully square. Boy doesn’t have a dangerous bone in his body. 🙂

    • Eve says:


      Tell that to all the animais he’s been killing for pleasure.

      Oh, and ones he’s abused.

      • Bobbie says:

        He talks like he’s in the 1950s. Ward Cleaver. He ‘s artistic without the artistic personality.

      • Jaded says:

        @Bobbie – he’s no Ward Cleaver. Ward Cleaver was a respectful man. He’s not artistic either — simply being an action movie actor doesn’t make you artistic. He’s an arrogant, insensitive and misogynistic jerk who deserves all the dragging he’s getting on social media.

  65. A says:

    The whole way this is written is just so bad and self-serving, it’s awful. “Look at the way she’s looking at me!! She’s given ME an amazing life. She gave ME a healthy daughter. In return for all the stuff she does for ME, I drown out her loud chewing and open a pickle jar and make bad jokes about what an awful husband I am in return for the subservient wonder that is my wife. Her heart is PURE bc she’s a golden retriever puppy, and that’s how you talk about them, right?”

    Just awful and gross and disgusting. He doesn’t have the charm or the funnybone necessary to pull off sh-t like this. God. Just awful.

    • Kate says:

      His post is “funny” in the way that wedding pictures where the wife is holding a sign saying “we got married on a friday because saturday is for the boys” is funny. In that it’s pretending to demean a woman you love but you get to say ‘haha just kidding’ and she laughs because thank goodness you don’t mean that.

      if he wants to be ryan reynolds he should just hire a funny social media person to write his posts because this ain’t it

      • A says:

        Omg yes, you nailed it. That’s exactly it. It’s weird and demeaning as a result of its weirdness.

  66. Ivy says:

    I did the same.
    Even though I’ve always disliked him I thought everyone was over reacting. Then I read it.
    All i read is “Look how well SHE takes care of ME!!!!”
    I have a new respect for Anna for putting up with thar big knuckle dragging neanderthal.
    How does he still get work? Why is the poor Katherine married to him?
    One day she’s going to wake up and think WTF did I marry?
    Until then I pray for her.

  67. Sal says:

    The comment alone didn’t seem terrible until I learned that he has a 9-year old child with his first wife who was in the NICU and still has health issues.

    If having a baby in the NICU doesn’t make you get some depth and sensitivity and see God, what could? I guess that explains his constant blathering about some for-profit church.

  68. E says:

    “She’s given me a healthy daughter”

    Ugh this is so bad. Jack has special needs not because of genetics but because Anna’s water broke very early and he was born about 9 weeks premature. Jack subsequently had bleeding in his brain which caused his vision impairments and leg coordination issues. Anna, like a lot of women who this happens to, felt responsible and blamed herself. I’d bet Chris actually does blame Anna: in his dumb Hillsong mind, she was *bad* and had career ambitions and waited until 35 to have a child instead of being a *good Christian woman* and getting pregnant at a younger age. Barf.

    Pratt is a total fart nugget.

    • LovesitinNM says:

      It’s like he can’t even imagine how bad what he said is! There is a place in between where you just say you are feeling blessed and grateful for your life and show this picture. That would have been FINE. Ugh this guy.

  69. LovesitinNM says:

    If your persona is always super douche guy that needs attention then this isn’t humorous, it’s just sad… and telling.
    As for his wife, come on, do better than this. This is your ultimate? This is who you look up to and want to be a help mate to? Puke

  70. jferber says:

    Cut him from Garfield. Punish this bitch. The Kennedy woman should divorce him, too. Let that be her birthday present to herself. F-ck this Chris. I hope Katherine sets his baseball card on fire in front of his face.

  71. Mcmmom says:

    OMG – I finally looked at the picture. I had been reading these comments, thinking he was referring to how his DAUGHTER looked at him! This is gross.

    Dude – take a lesson from Joshua Jackson about how to present your marriage on social media. YOU are supposed to look like you are adoring HER.

    • Roo says:

      Omg. Right? You can tell he loves her and thinks he’s the luckiest guy in the world, and their ad video is adorable. This Crisp Ratt thing, however, is not cute.

  72. CruzMom says:

    Wow! This was alarmingly tone deaf, unfunny, misogynistic AND ableist. Not easy to do in one post, so good for him?? Seriously, as a fellow parent of a child with disabilities (as well as another child who had a perfect AGPAR score), there is a 0% chance he is unaware of the pain it inflicts when another child is called “healthy”. It would be great if people just retired that word when it comes to babies altogether (or at a minimum not defending this jackass when he does it to his own child). Words matter for every marginalized community. On the positive side, a lot of people are unaware of how triggering that word is to the disability community, so I’m happy to see it being openly discussed. So he did achieve something!

  73. Isa says:

    He looks like her dad.

    If my husband wrote this about me I would wonder if he even really liked me.

    Let’s not forget she even clips his toenails.

  74. Greenfingers says:

    And now they’re saying he felt so horrible about the media backlash, he woke up and went running with some christian songs in his ear, and felt so much better after that…


    • Ana Maria says:

      I came here just to see if someone had read that! I found it disturbing, how he turns anything into a me-me-me situation and quite frankly he sounds high on something other than God; he definitely left Justin Timberlake in the dust in the “everything is about me” contest

  75. jferber says:

    “Her heart is pure and it belongs to me” is a very creepy way of saying they love each other. It sounds like he keeps her heart in a jar of formaldehyde, like an update of an Edgar Allan Poe short story. Or is he just saying she is in his possession like his baseball card, which he seems to value equally ? This is a very Prince William view of the world. He is belittling her by valuing her in the same category as his collectibles. Very shallow and should set off alarms for Katherine, but it won’t.

  76. pS says:

    This is such an overreaction – has he ever said his son is not healthy? Or that he’s not blessed or proud of his son? Ya’ll really like to reach. He’s talking about his wife and the child he has WITH HER – who happens to be a beautiful, healthy baby girl, something all parents say. In an effort to be woke, don’t forget common comprehension.

    The only thing I raised an eyebrow at was the “that’s the trade” part, but other than that, I got that he was being funny and playful towards his wife – whether or not you agree with it being funny or playful doesn’t matter.

    Lastly – everyone’s conveniently forgetting that Anna Faris is a serial cheater, and painting her out to be the lucky one to leave the relationship is hysterical. But sure, have at it, praise her lmaooo.

    • Jaded says:

      @PS — what a mean post. Pratt never referenced his daughter as “the child he has WITH HER”, he said the child “she gave me”. Those 3 words reflect his patriarchy and arrogance. They made that baby together — she carried it around inside her for 9 months then went through an arduous labour delivering her. But no, it’s “his” now. The rest of his post comes across as sarcastic and demeaning, not funny.

      Furthermore, Anna is NOT a serial cheater, if you throw around bitchy comments like that back it up with facts.

    • kate says:

      I agree with you. His comments seem largely benign and completely appropriate within the framework of their obviously traditional marriage. I don’t see any reason to view them through the most uncharitable lens possible. I support women in however they freely choose to live their lives. They seem happy.

  77. CruzMom says:

    PS, with all due respect, it is easy to think something is not a big deal when it does not affect you (although, keep in mind that 10% of all of us will have a disability on our lifetime, which means you and your loved ones, in which case you will also be pretty pissed off by ableism). The point is the word would NEVER be used casually by somebody with a child with a health issue or disability. It’s not a new issue in the disability community. If you doubt his intent, try to recall the last time someone described their toddler as “healthy”. Maybe ““a potential serial killer”, but “healthy” is a weird word for anyone who is not a newborn or 100 years old.

    • WithTheAmerican says:

      Pretty sure this does affect PS, just not in the way that has him sympathize with his, Er, Rat’s son.

  78. LA says:

    The ONLY positive thing I can say is that I liked Maria’s comment.

  79. CruzMom says:

    LA, totally agreed!!! She is the champ. 😂

  80. Lemons says:

    All we really need to know is that Chris or his team can’t even be bothered to tag Katherine in his IG posts about her even though she is clearly trying to make it as some sort of influencer or guru. He has over 33 million followers while she has not yet broken 1 million.

    If she’s happy with that alongside the trashy, condescending posts…so be it.

  81. caitlin says:

    His comment about meeting her at church confused me. Like the rest of her family, Katherine is a Catholic. Did she convert?

    I also can’t help but notice that while there are photos of his son all over the internet -pap & personal – his daughter is never shown and if she is, her face is hidden. Interesting that he is so protective of her, yet in his son’s case, anything goes

  82. Gubbinal says:

    I would like to think that Maria Shriver is going to try to get her daughter de-programmed.

  83. Valerie says:

    First thought: Wow.

    Second thought, as someone who was born prematurely: Fuck you, man. Everyone wants their child to be happy and healthy, but Republicans seem to have a little problem when it comes to anyone who has chronic health problems, is in any way disabled or differently-abled. And again. as always, if it happens to someone else, it’s not their problem. If it happens to them, you’d better believe they’ll be making all sorts of demands on others for assistance. Everything is socialism!!! until they need it.

  84. Southern Fried says:

    Chris Pratt Twitter post 2011: “If I wasn’t an actor I’d probably be a cop. Probably crooked. On the payroll. Turn a blind eye to corruption. Shoot a dude. Plant a gun. The usual.”
    Assh@ole then. Same now.

    • Eve says:

      @Southern Fried:

      Why am I not surprised by this? And I honestly think he is NOT joking with that tweet.

  85. Savannah says:

    If you have a child from a previous marriage, you have a responsibility to make sure they don’t feel like you’ve “moved on” to your new family. He’s a douche and I’m sure Anna is better off without him and his vanilla downgrade.
