Chris Pratt Doesn’t Go To ‘Chris’ And We Are Shocked: ‘It’s Not My Name’

“Jurassic World: Dominion” star Chris Pratt He wants his first name to go the way of the dinosaurs. (Watch the video below).

The actor recently revealed that he does not like being called Chris. “No one calls me Chris. I don’t have a single friend who calls me Chris.”

“What do they call you? Pratt?” Jessica Shaw asked about her SiriusXM “Pop Culture Spotlight” for every Entertainment Weekly.

“Yes. Pratt. CP. You know, CP. Hi, CP,” Pratt replied. “But nobody calls me Chris. My friend Chad. I went golfing with my friend, Chad, a shepherd, one day and he’d say, “Nobody’s calling you Chris? I’ll call you Chris. Alright Chris. You’re ready.”

“And I said, No, it feels weird. It’s not my name. Don’t call me Chris.”

For the record, the actor’s legal name is Christopher Michael Pratt. So technically it is Chris. Just don’t say it to his face.

On a practical level, going for “Pratt” or something else can separate him from the current glut of notable actors named Chris, including Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans and Chris Pine.

Pratt isn’t the only celebrity making news with his name. “Mission: Impossible II” star Mina Newton, who previously moved to Thandie, recently moved to using her real name In TV and movie credits. A few years ago, supermodel Chrissy Teigen announced that we were saying it The whole family name is wrong For years: It is pronounced Tie-gen, not Tee-gen.

So there.
