Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday (April 21).
Joined by wife Anna Faris and their 4-year-old son Jack, the actor, 37, was all smiles while receiving the honor in Hollywood, Calif.
The Passengers star was introduced by the Scary Movie actress, 40, who gave a heartfelt speech.
“This is actually a thank-you speech,” Faris said. “I’m the beneficiary of all this because I get to spend every day with this wonderful man … I know that if our circumstances were different and we weren’t as fortunate to be standing here and living our Hollywood life, we would be happy in the woods together, I think.”
She then spoke about their preschooler, who was born premature.
“He stood by me and held me and was my anchor,” she said of her doting husband.
Not to mention his sense of humor.
“At the premiere of Guardians 2, on the red carpet he whispered something unbelievably inappropriate into my ear and it was awesome,” she shared. “Honey, I want to thank you for being the most incredible person. I love you so much.”
Then the man of the hour took to the podium.
“I’m a man of faith and I believe that God works in mysterious ways and gives us signs and gifts in life — and those gifts oftentimes come in the form of people,” Pratt began. “So I’ll just spend the rest of my time expressing gratitude for the people in my life who are gifts.”
He couldn’t help but gush about his mother.
“She gave absolutely everything she had to raise us, every fiber of her being,” he shared. “And oftentimes we weren’t cash-rich, but we were never love-poor. You gave everything and you were always proud of me, way before this. When I was a waiter at Coco’s you just couldn’t get enough of me.”
He went on to thank his brother Cully. “He is my star and always has been,” Pratt shared. “He played a major supporting role in raising me, and was a big fan of mine and always guided me and I love you.”And he thanked his sister Angie. “She taught me how to fight, she taught me how to value emotions, she taught me how to have a backbone and she made some profound sacrifices for our family, so that I could be down here chasing my dreams,” he shared.
After thanking several colleagues, he finally spoke to his wife in the audience.
“I want to thank my wife Anna,” he said, “I love you. You’ve given me so much. You gave me the greatest star in the galaxy in my little boy, I love him and I love you.”
He added: “We have bonded to make this molecule that is more important to me than air or water, and without it none of this means anything to me. With every challenge, with every day, week, month, decade, we become more bonded. You make me laugh like nobody else. You’re very caring, and thank you for your trust and your sacrifice — and for your dedication and your heart. I will do my best to protect it, and in return I will give you all of those things as well. You have my heart, my dedication, my trust.”
