Chris Pratt Net Worth: $30 million
It was his charismatic and laugh out loud performance in Guardians of the Galaxy that got this mega star recognition in 2014. He has actually been in a string of movies and TV series, you just may not have noticed… He was always cast as the chubby sidekick or funny friend. After a make over of sorts he took his talent to the next level and boy did that pay off. His net worth has jumped from a mediocre $1.3 million in 2011 to a staggering $21 million in 2016!
Chris Pratt’s Beginning
Christopher Michael Pratt was born in Virginia, Minnesota in 1979 into an average American family. His mother Kathleen worked in a supermarket and his father, Dan, remodeled houses. He spent most of his youth in Washington where he discovered his love for acting; he took part in small plays and tried his hand at dinner theatre. He even worked as a daytime stripper! After years of trying to catch his big break he eventually gave up and decided to move to picturesque Hawaii to work as a barman.
Chris’ first few months in Hawaii didn’t exactly go well, he found himself homeless and sleeping in a tent on the beach. However, while on duty behind the bar, his effortless charm and charisma caught the eye of a new director on the block named Rae Dawn Chong. She immediately cast 19-year-old Pratt in her debut film, Cursed Part 3. Now, while most of us probably haven’t seen the low budget horror it certainly did launch his career and so began the growth of the Chris Pratt net worth.
Doors were opened and Chris began to get small roles in well-known TV shows. His first notable role was as Bright Abbot in Everwood whom he played from 2002 – 2006. During this 4-year stint he also had a small role on the popular teen show, The OC. He played the hilarious friend of Rachel Bilson, Che and his stand out scene included him playing a guitar in the buff!
People really started to take notice of Pratt in 2009 when he played the incredibly funny, unemployed, couch potato, Andy Dwyer on hit TV show Parks and Recreation. His character was supposed to be a temporary one but he was so likable that he was written in as a regular.
During his success on Parks and Recreation he bagged himself some small roles in Hollywood films such as Moneyball and Zero Dark Thirty. He was steadily climbing up the acting ladder and his net worth was climbing as well.
Show Me the Money
2014 is where the Chris Pratt net worth really started to shine. He was now becoming a bankable leading man in his own right. He voiced a character in the popular children’s Lego Movie and was paid $900 000. But it was his breakout role as a lead actor in the highly entertaining and memorable Guardians of the Galaxy that really got Hollywood buzzing.
In preparation for the role he shed an incredible 80 pounds and gained some serious muscle, much to the delight of female fans around the world. He was no longer the chubby sidekick; he was now a handsome, hulky leading man. The movie grossed a massive $772.7 million at the box office and Pratt received a substantial paycheck of $1.5million. Thanks to Guardians of the Galaxy, Chris became the second highest grossing actor of 2014, just one step behind Jennifer Lawrence and he was voted People magazine’s second sexiest man alive *swoon*
He is currently filming Guardians of the Galaxy 2 in Atlanta and it is estimated he will earn in the tens of millions.
Chris Pratt’s most profitable role to date was in the major blockbuster hit Jurassic World in 2015. The film raked in an unbelievable $1.6 billion, yes billion, at the box office and Forbes estimates his salary was $10 million. He is lined up to do a sequel and there are rumors that he has been offered in the range of $30 million to reprise his role as Owen. If he stars in all four follow-ups he will bank an estimated $100 million!

And she gave me a wonderful son and family of in-laws that I truly love.” They have a 3-year-old son together named Jack.
