Chris Pratt was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday, and we can’t think of many stars we’d rather see accept.
No, not because he’s sweet and gracious and super hunky in a Tom Ford 3-piece. (All that stuff is fabulous though!) But we’re really excited because he brought along his wonderful fam!
“This is actually a thank-you speech. 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.”
And their son, the adorable little Jack Pratt, was right there with them, being adorable in every pic. But he also stood as a reminder of their tough times; Jack was born premature and had health problems when he was very young.
But Anna says Chris helped her get through it all:
“He stood by me and held me and was my anchor.”
Awwwww. But she didn’t keep it too schmaltzy. She also shared one more Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 premiere secret:
“At the premiere of Guardians 2, on the red carpet he whispered something unbelievably inappropriate into my ear and it was awesome. Honey, I want to thank you for being the most incredible person. I love you so much.”
Then Chris went all-out and DID make us cry! It was one of the most grateful speeches we’ve ever heard. He began:
“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. So I’ll just spend the rest of my time expressing gratitude for the people in my life who are gifts.”
And he did.
He thanked first his mother:
“She gave absolutely everything she had to raise us, every fiber of her being. 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.”
His brother Cully:
“He is my star and always has been. He played a major supporting role in raising me, and was a big fan of mine and always guided me and I love you.”
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.”
James Gunn and the Guardians franchise:
“It’s changed so many lives: My life, my wife’s life, the lives of children in hospitals, the lives of my real estate agent, my great grandkids — they’re all going to benefit.”
“I feel as though I’m just the shiny hood ornament on a well-oiled machine that they drive every single day.”
…and last but not least, Anna:
“I want to thank my wife Anna, 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. 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.”
Wow. So romantic!

Watching @prattprattpratt’s speech as he gets his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, after both @annafaris & I gave our speeches. Kinda proud. Both Chris and Anna made me cry with their heartfelt and grateful sentiments about their relationship, the fans, their coworkers, and the lives they lead. A lot of these things can be stuffy affairs – I was lucky to be a part of something where all the people involved had such a deep love for each other. And I was incredibly touched that Kevin, Lou, and Victoria from Marvel showed up as did @zoesaldana, @davebautista, @michael_rooker and @pomin8r. I try so hard not to use the word blessed on Instagram, but there I go. What a lovely, amazing day. Meanwhile, Chris and Anna’s son Jack could care less about any of it (except he was very excited to meet Yondu, and he had a nice “oblodoblobiddlitoobut” conversation with him). ❤️A post shared by James Gunn (@jamesgunn) on Apr 21, 2017 at 2:14pm PDT
