He shared photos of the project on his on his Instagram page on Monday, from picking the perfect spot, digging the hole and pouring the cement.

Anna Faris On Chris Pratt Cheating Rumors: 'It's Been Weirdly St
Anna Faris says tabloid reports that her husband Chris Pratt was cheating on her with his "Passengers" co-star Jennifer Lawrence caught her totally off guard.

Chris Pratt
Jurassic World star Chris Pratt has a clause in his movie contracts saying that he refuses to film movies outside of the United States.

The actor, who is married to actress Anna Faris, says the clause has nothing to do with any fear of flying, or a dislike of foreigners or even being patriotic and keeping it in the country. Instead, he just likes to be close to his family.

"I don't wanna go across the Atlantic Ocean because it's just too far to go that way, and so far people have been accommodating," Pratt tells Entertainment Weekly Radio of not wanting to travel overseas to film.

New 'Jurassic' Generation: Chris Pratt Confirms Sequels For 'Jur
Jurassic Park was such a megahit when it released in the 1990s, that there was no question that it would get at least one sequel. But fans ended up being quite disapppointed in not only The Lost World, but also Jurassic Park III, both of which are thought of as being far weaker movies than the original.

The fourth movie in the series, Jurassic World, released last Friday, and has gotten mostly positive reviews, as well as commercial success. Now, star Chris Pratt has confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that like the original, this dinosaur flick for a new generation will also be getting the ...

Watch Chris Pratt Run In High Heels Like His Costar In 'Jurassic
Jurassic World hits theaters Friday and is getting mostly positive reviews so far. One aspect of the film that is generating a bit of debate, however, are the scenes where actress Bryce Dallas Howard gets chased by dinosaurs while wearing her high heels.

Some corners of the Internet are rolling their eyes at Hollywood once again making an actress do something ridiculous on screen that a man would never get asked to do.

But it looks like maybe someone on the Jurassic World set should have asked Chris Pratt. Turns out, he's game.

Pratt and Howard both appeared on The Late Late Show with ...

Chris Pratt Clarifies 'Impotent' Remark, Says He Didn't Know Its
No matter what Chris Pratt does, we can't help but like him -- even if he doesn't quite understand the English language.

In a recent interview with Men's Health UK, the "Jurassic World" star talked about gaining weight a couple of years ago, saying the extra pounds left him "impotent." The actor weighed nearly 300 pounds after filming 2013 comedy "Delivery Man," and he insinuated that may have left him unable to achieve an erection. (Meanwhile, Pratt, 35, has a young son with actress wife Anna Faris.)

Chris Pratt Avoids Kim Kardashian After Making Lewd Joke About H
"Jurassic World" star Chris Pratt is worried about running into Kim Kardashian because of something he said behind her back that is now a widely viewed TV blooper.

The pair starred together in 2009 film "Deep in the Valley" about a mysterious video booth that transports two friends to an alternate reality straight out of a pornographic film.

In a recent interview with GQ magazine, Pratt said of his co-star: "She'd never really done an acting gig before. She was so f---ing sweet, and she was nervous."

Chris Pratt Takes Center Stage In The Latest 'Jurassic World' Tr
The new trailer for Jurassic World is so over the top and unbelievable -- that we can't wait to see it!

The film stars Chris Pratt as Owne Grady, who is good with animals and is basically a dinosaur whisperer, something that comes in extremely handy when it comes to taking on the film's new bad guy, the Indominus Rex.

The I-Rex just happens to be a genetically engineered dino that gets off on hunting other dinosaurs. And people.

"It's not about control," he says in the trailer as he tames a trio of velociraptors, "it's a relationship based on respect."

"These animals are thinking I gott...

Any time a celebrity shows up online with a new baby, it's the greatest thing ever. Love and support and a lifetime supply of likes on Instagram.

But sometimes actual childbirth isn't all sunshine and flower petals.

It certainly wasn't for "Guardians of the Galaxy" star Chris Pratt and his wife, comedic actress Anna Faris. Their son Jack was born nearly two years ago, but Faris is just now talking about the experience to Redbook magazine.

And Jack was born prematurely- nine weeks ahead of schedule- so the experience was even more frightening than your average birth.

Can Chris Pratt Breathe New Life Into The 'Indiana Jones' Franch
Will Chris Pratt breathe new life into the upcoming Disney films remake of the successful "Indiana Jones" franchise?

Just last year, Pratt was known best for his work on "Parks & Recreation" fans. Today, he is an in-demand actor and one of the most bankable stars in Hollywood.

An "Indiana Jones" reboot is still in the early development stages with Disney. The studio, which acquired the rights to the "Indiana Jones" franchise from Paramount in 2013, plans to dust off the adventures of the archeologist, who was played by Harrison Ford in four movies between 1981 and 2008.

'Parks And Recreation' Season 7 Premiere Recap

1/14/2015 3:42pm EST
Parks and Recreation
Picking up after the finale’s surprising time leap, it is now the year 2017 and things have definitely changed in Pawnee, Indiana. The Parks and Recreation premiere clues us in on what various characters have been up to in the last three years, yet doesn’t overbear us with exposition leaving us with some ambiguities and intriguing questions, like: What the hell is Morningstar, how did it ruin Ron and Leslie’s relationship, and (perhaps most importantly) what exactly does a Shia LaBeouf-designed wedding dress look like?

In the first half-hour, aptly entitled “2017”, Leslie wants to build a ...

Top 5 Entertainers Of 2014

From ice bucket challenges to intense nation-wide protests, 2014 was a bizarre year in pop culture. While television soared with freshman series like “The Flash,” “black-sh” and “Outlander” the silver screen floundered a bit with the poorly-reviewed “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” the panned and grossly miscast “Exodus: Gods and Kings” but had some success with the universal hit, “Guardians Of The Galaxy” and surprise hits such as “Birdman.” Toss in the Sony hacking scandal in late December, a smattering of pant-less pot tarts, divorcing divas and anti-boybands, and you can say the year was m...
