Chris Pratt Explains Why He Doesn’t Like People Calling Him Chris

“It feels strange. It’s not my given name. Refrain from addressing me as Chris.”

Chris Pratt has shared insights on his connection with his first name and disclosed his aversion to being called Chris by others.

It’s quite challenging to picture Chris Pratt with an alternative name. Since gaining prominence, the actor has earned recognition as one of the most identifiable individuals named Chris in the entertainment industry. Achieving fame through his roles in productions like Parks and Recreation, Jurassic World, and Guardians of the Galaxy, Chris Pratt has risen to equal or even surpass the fame of Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, and Chris Pine. Nevertheless, he certainly falls short of the fame associated with Kris Jenner.

For those who may be puzzled, Chris Pratt was christened Christopher Michael Pratt, and he attributes his professional work under the moniker Chris Pratt. Consequently, Chris Pratt’s authentic name remains Chris Pratt. Nonetheless, those in his inner circle avoid addressing him as Chris. During an interview on SiriusXM’s Pop Culture Spotlight With Jessica Shaw, Jessica inquired, “How do they refer to you? Pratt?” to which Chris provided clarity.

In reply, Chris expressed, “Certainly. Pratt. CP. You know, CP. ‘Hey, CP.’ However, nobody adopts the term Chris. My pal, Chad. I engaged in a game of golf with my buddy, Chad, and our pastor recently, and Chad, opting to be unorthodox, stated, ‘Nobody utilizes Chris? I shall address you as Chris. Okay, Chris. Your turn.’ Yet, I felt compelled to respond, “No, it feels awkward. It’s divergent from my authentic identity. Abstain from labeling me as Chris.”

Presently, it remains ambiguous whether Chris holds intentions to legally alter his name or regards “Chris Pratt” as a pseudonym; nevertheless, we pledge to provide updates as necessary. The names Pratt and CP simply lack the resonance inherent in Chris.

Now that Chris Pratt has formally exited the prominent Chris cohort within Hollywood, it seems fitting to initiate the process of scouting for an additional member to augment the famed Chris collective. I hereby nominate Chris Messina as a promising candidate.
