Taking to Instagram, Chris Pratt once shared a selfie he had taken while preparing for Zero Dark Thirty. Upon watching the photo, Marvel decided he would make a great lead in the first Guardians of the Galaxy film. Unfortunately, he gained a lot of weight while preparing for his role as Delivery Man. “They held up the selfie from Zero Dark Thirty and said, ‘You’re too fat for Star-Lord. How long will it take you to look like this?’ They gave me five-and-a-half months. I did what I had to do!” the actor once told Best Fit.

After getting the deadline to get into shape, Marvel connected Pratt with nutritionist Phil Goglia and fitness trainer Duffy Gaver. As his diet was revamped, his daily caloric intake increased to 4,000 calories and adding a gallon of water was for each pound he weighed. “I was peeing all day long, every day. That part was a nightmare,” the actor told Men’s Health.
