"I just like to gain weight and lose weight. It’s a rollercoaster," Pratt joked to Vulture of his weight loss and gain for film roles. "I just want to do this. I want to touch God."
Pratt packed on a reported 60 pounds for his role as a lawyer in the upcoming "Delivery Man" in which he co-stars alongside Vince Vaughn.
In 2012, he got into tip-top shape for the Oscar-winning " Zero Dark Thirty."
"I was about 50 pounds or 40 pounds lighter than I am now," Pratt later told E! Online at the film's Hollywood premiere. "I worked out really hard and I cut out everything bad for me for a long time and I just focused on trying to become a believable Navy SEAL."
The actor shared the below photo of his filming physique while appearing on "Conan."
In 2011, Pratt played real-life Oakland A’s baseball player, Scott Hatteberg, opposite Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill and Phillip Seymour Hoffman in “Moneyball.”
Before that, Pratt appeared as Anne Hathaway’s ill-fated fiancé in the 2009 comedy “Bride Wars."
That same year, he married his real-life love, actress Anna Faris.
The comedy couple welcomed their first child, Jack, in August.
Despite his A-list looks these days, let's not forget a lighter-haired Pratt starred as Bright Abbott on the WB's "Everwood" way back in 2002.
