Chris Pratt: Crotch Photobomb 'Is Something You Have To Plan Wit
Actor Chris Pratt has been warned by executives at NBC to not talk about an incident when he exposed his genitals while filming a TV show.

He was filming Parks and Recreation six years ago when he decided to prank co-star Rashida Jones by standing naked in her office.

In initial scenes he wore flesh-coloured underwear for the big reveal, but when he didn't get the reaction he wanted he decided to bare all.

He tells the New York Daily News, "I did one (take) without them, and Amy (Poehler) was like, 'Noo, nooo,' and that is the take they ended up using."

But it did not sit well with boss...

Chris Pratt wants more children.
The 34-year-old star loves being a father to his 15-month-old son Jack - who he had with his 36-year-old wife Anna Faris - and is hoping to give the little one a sibling sometime soon.

Chris Pratt used to be a stripper

Chris Pratt
Chris Pratt used to work as a part-time stripper.
The 'Parks and Recreation' actor claims he "loved to get naked" and so decided to make money out of his passion for nudity by taking off his clothes and performing sexual dance routines for women when he was just 18 years old.
Although Chris never worked as a stripper full-time, it was one of the many jobs he had before making it as a Hollywood actor.
He told "I was always very much a naked person. I loved to get naked. I was very free, so I thought, I may as well get paid."
The 34-year-old actor even performed for his friend'...

Actor Chris Pratt has revealed he moonlighted as an amateur stripper before breaking into acting.

The Zero Dark Thirty star admits he has always been comfortable with his body and decided he could make good money showing it off.

He tells, "I was always a very much naked person (sic). I loved to always get naked (sic).

"I was very free, so I thought, 'I may as well get paid'."

He continues, "It was a surprise. I don't know how it got around to them, but they paid me $...

Anna Faris
Anna Faris is glad she no longer has to strip off in films.
The 'Scary Movie' actress admits most of the scripts she was sent in her early career called for some kind of nudity and although she was never prudish about showing off her body she is glad she has left those roles behind.
Anna - who is married to 'Moneyball' actor Chris Pratt - told the Metro newspaper: "The roles are getting better. I'm grateful I don't have to be chasing a guy in my underwear. In my 20s, it felt like there was a point in every script where it said, 'As she slowly unbuttons her blouse.'

'Parks And Recreation' - 'London Part I & II' Review

September 27th, 2013 3:45pm EDT
Parks and Recreation
“Parks and Recreation” is back and we could not be happier, especially when the new season kicks off with such a fantastic episode. How is it that a series that can be so ridiculously funny and silly also have me tearing up by the closing credits? It still amazes me that the show manages to sustain such a perfect combination of comedy and real emotion without ever crossing the line into sappy or overwrought. The writers balance the two facets of the show exceptionally and “London Part I & II” are great examples of their skill. Starting out with the greatest wedding ever televised, real or f...

Vin Diesel
Action man Vin Diesel is in talks to join the cast of Marvel Comics' new superhero movie Guardians Of The Galaxy.

The Fast and The Furious star first sparked rumours of his involvement in an upcoming Marvel project last month (Jul13) when he took to his page and revealed that he had met with company bosses over a top-secret new role.

He simply wrote, "Marvel meeting today... Only the people in the room can tell you what was discussed... and after that meeting today... wow!"

On Sunday (11Aug13), Diesel appeared to hint that the mystery job was for the forthcoming Guardians of...

Vin Diesel
Vin Diesel is in talks to play Groot in 'Guardians of the Galaxy'.

The 'Fast & Furious 6' star is reportedly being eyed to play the tree-like alien superhero in Marvel's new space-set comic book movie directed by James Gunn, according to Deadline.

Diesel hinted at the casting by posting a picture of the character on his Facebook page but swiftly took it down.

The sentient character gains super strength from absorbing wood and has the ability to control trees. However, the role will require little dialogue as Groot's sole line is, "I am Groot."

Groot is part of the titular intergalactic ...

Review: 'The Five-Year Engagement' Just Not That Engaging

April 26th, 2012 7:19pm EDT
Five-Year Engagement
Unlike John, the other half of the 'Two Jews On Film, it doesn't take a lot for me to enjoy a film. Basically, I want to care about the characters and their story. And this brings me to my problem with 'The Five Year Engagement', directed by Nicholas Stoller ('Get Him To The Greek') I just didn't care.

Not only didn't I care about the two lead characters, Tom (Jason Segel) and Violet (Emily Blunt) but they really, really annoyed me.

The film starts out promising. Tom, an up and coming chef in San Francisco proposes rather romantically to his British girlfriend Violet. She happily accepts...

Parks and Recreation - 'Citizen Knope' Recap

December 9th, 2011 2:48pm EST
Citizen Knope
Generally speaking, this season of Parks and Recreation has been strong, but these last couple of episodes have by far been the best. The first half of the season concentrated largely on how splintered the Parks Department had become with the departure of Tom, and Leslie off chasing her dreams of political office while trying to ignore her continued affection for Ben. This led to much of the cast doing their own thing, with the writers throwing them a bone every once in a while in the form of C or D plots that never really amounted to anything. Sometimes these diversions worked—April and An...

'Parks And Recreation' - 'The Trial Of Leslie Knope' Recap

December 2nd, 2011 3:21pm EST
The Trial of Leslie Knope
Of all of the characters that we’ve seen roaming around the muraled corridors of Pawnee city hall, Chris Traeger is the one that we really know the least about. We know all about his health food kick, his obsession with exercise and being a stickler for the rules—we know all of that… but there’s still something naggingly mysterious about the man. Chris dragging Leslie in front of an ethics committee for her relationship with Ben is a chance to illustrate how little we’ve come to know Chris. The trial forces Chris away from being the affable eccentric we’re familiar with, even when he’s self...

'Parks And Recreation' - 'The Treaty' Recap

November 11th, 2011 10:47am EST
The Treaty
Is it just me or was that episode rather light on laughs?

Sure, the concept of Leslie and Ben’s personal trouble causing a model war to break out at Pawnee’s model UN is funny enough in concept—with some effective barbs at the actual UN—but overall, this felt just like a retread of last week’s otherwise great episode when Leslie and Ben decided that they could remain friends after some awkward tension built up when they were forced to work together. This week, I guess, puts that decision to the test when Leslie invites Ben to help her run the model UN for Pawnee’s little Knopes and Bens (y...

'Parks And Recreation' – 'End of the World' Recap

November 4th, 2011 3:53pm EDT
Parks and Recreation
Fake apocalypse or not, your priorities change on your last day on earth. Long term plans and practicality both go out the window and eking out one last moment of happiness becomes paramount. And even though the Apocalypse that’s bearing down on Pawnee is of the crackpot loon variety, the implications of it have loaded the members of the Parks department with whimsy.

With her concerns about her political future put on hold for an evening, Leslie’s thoughts go right back to Ben. The pair of them are assigned to stand watch over park as Pawnee's favorite cult, The Reasonablists, pow-wow arou...

'Parks And Recreation' - 'Pawnee Rangers' Recap

October 14th, 2011 4:18pm EDT
Pawnee Rangers
This week we mainly follow the conflict between Pawnee’s two competing youth groups: the bleak, all boys survivalist group the Pawnee Rangers, led by Ron Swanson, and its all-girl antithesis the Pawnee Goddesses, created by Leslie Knope, who never met a gender role she couldn’t break. Like when he coached basketball last year, Ron becomes even more rigid when children are in his tutaliage. His single rule for his Rangers? Be a man. Other than that, he gives them a box and a piece of canvas and sets out to teach his boys the virtue of solitude, contemplation and surviving the wild.

To Ron t...

'Parks And Recreation' – 'Born And Raised' Recap

Gotcha Girls
Now that Tammy 1 has been sent back to Hell or… wherever she’s from (Indianapolis?), "Parks and Rec" is back on the Knope 2012 campaign. Like every single other politician in the world, Leslie has written a book. Rather than write about what a wonderful visionary she is (again, like every single other politican in the world), Leslie has written a comprehensive history of Pawnee… with her picture on the cover for some reason.

To promote the book, Leslie is making the Pawnee media rounds—apparently opting out of her favorite radio show Crazy Ira and The Douche for classier pastures, a goofba...

Chris Pratt & Wife Anna Faris Received Death Threats For Giving Their Cat Away Via Twitter

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris
Wanted star Chris Pratt and his actress wife Anna Faris have been targeted by pet lovers for attempting to find a new home for their old cat on

The actors are too busy to properly care for the aging pet and so Pratt took to the site to find Bella a new owner.

In a recent post, he wrote, "Anyone in the LA area want a cat? Full disclosure, she's old and prone to accidents. So sweet though. And was in (the movie) Stuart Little. (literally)... She is very sweet and needs a good home. We have pugs (dogs) and she's too old to deal (with them). She needs one on one attention."

Funnywoman Anna Faris has opened up about her sex life in a candid interview, revealing she is "not a very good lover" and has only slept with five men.

I'm Leslie Knope
Hello fellow Pawneeians! I’ll be guiding you through this fourth (fourth!) season of NBC’s “Parks and Recreation”. So let’s get kicking.

The end of last season saw most of the parks department moving towards brighter futures, making their lives about a million times more complicated than they were before. Leslie and Ben decided to keep their forbidden romance from the rest of the office, which makes for a potential scandal when Leslie’s political career suddenly sprouts legs. Tom resigned so he can follow his dreams of being—well Jay-Z, I guess. Even Andy is looking to moving on from his s...

She plays: April Ludgate, the Parks and Recreation staffer known as much for her back-and-forth flirtation with dimwit Andy (Chris Pratt) as for her chronically dry wit — something the actress admits to sharing with her alter ego.

Starpulse recently had the chance to join a conference call with actors Rashida Jones and Chris Pratt of NBC's Parks and Recreation where they discussed their characters' relationship, their personal park experiences and more.

Chris Pratt: I thought that there was a chance I wouldn't be coming back and I was a little worried.
