Meanwhile, recently the actor’s critics called him “Hollywood’s Worst Chris”, with many commenting on his involvement in a conservative church and others assuming that he is a fan of US President Donald Trump. Netizens also attacked Pratt over an Instagram post where he urged fans to vote for his film “Onward” to win a People’s Choice Award.
Soon after the criticism, Avengers stars Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey Jr came in defend of Chris.
“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,” Ruffalo had written on Twitter.
Downey Jr expressed his opinion via Instagram, sharing a photo of him and Pratt smiling on set. “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,” Downey Jr added.
The actor was referring to Pratt’s marriage to Katherine Schwarzenegger, daughter of Hollywood superstar Arnold Schwarzenegger who has been a Republican Governor of California.
