Every actor has a story about the odd job they used to work before they hit it big, and that odd job for actor Chris Pratt was being a stripper. That’s right, the lovable and adorable star of Parks and Recreation used to rip of his clothes and twerk it for the ladies. And maybe even a few men.
In an interview with Buzzfeed to promote his new film Delivery Man, Pratt said he started the gig when he was only 18-years-old, showing up at bachelorette parties and the birthday of one of a pal’s grandmother, which sounds fun.
Pratt said of that experience:
It was a surprise. I don’t know how it got around to them, but they paid me $40. I was never like “Magic Mike,” you know. I did go one time and audition on a stage for a club, but I don’t think I got the job. I don’t think I’m a very good dancer.
Given that hot new body of his, we would be more than happy to have Chris Pratt show up and strip for us at a party. We wonder what his rate would be now?
