Chris Pratt’s famous co-stars come to his defense amid ‘worst Hollywood Chris’ flap! Chris Pratt’s famous friends have his back.
On the heels of support from his new bride Katherine Schwarzenegger, several of Pratt’s Marvel Universe co-stars — and beyond — are speaking out to boost the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy actor after Twitter dubbed him the “worst Hollywood Chris.”
It all started when a tweet went viral asking people which Chris they would get rid of — out of choices Pratt, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pine and Chris Evans. Well, the internet did its thing and dumped Pratt, mostly over the theory that he supports President Donald Trump. (The Jurassic World star’s connection to a church with anti-LGBTQ views was also mentioned. As was that “insensitive” voting-related joke.) But according to Mark Ruffalo, Pratt is “as solid a man there is.”
“I know him personally, and instead of casting aspersions, look at how he lives his life,” Ruffalo, who appeared in Avengers movies with Pratt, tweeted Tuesday. “He is just not overtly political as a rule. This is a distraction. Let’s keep our eyes on the prize, friends. We are so close now.”
That led to an almost choreographed delivery of support from members of the Marvel squad. Robert Downey Jr. called Pratt “a real #Christian who lives by #principle” and said he “has never demonstrated anything but #positivity and #gratitude.” And he urged haters to delete their social accounts and work on themselves.
Zoe Saldana shared a Tupac Shakur quote and a message to Pratt, telling him he has “got this” and that his “family, friends, colleagues & everyone who’s ever crossed paths with you knows your heart and your worth!”
Terry Crews praised Pratt for “having your own mind and your own beliefs.”
While Pratt may not be “overtly political,” the same cannot be said for some of his colleagues — like Ruffalo, who is quite vocal in his criticism of President Trump, declaring in February, “The world should consider my president public enemy number one.”
You all, @prattprattpratt is as solid a man there is. I know him personally, and instead of casting aspersions, look at how he lives his life. He is just not overtly political as a rule. This is a distraction. Let’s keep our eyes on the prize, friends. We are so close now.— Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) October 20, 2020

What a world… The “sinless” are casting stones at my #brother, Chris Pratt… A real #Christian who lives by #principle, has never demonstrated anything but #positivity and #gratitude… AND he just married into a family that makes space for civil discourse and (just plain fact) INSISTS on service as the highest value. If you take issue with Chris,,, I’ve got a novel idea. Delete your social media accounts, sit with your OWN defects of #character, work on THEM, then celebrate your humanness… @prattprattpratt I #gotyerbackbackback (📸 @jimmy_rich )
