The actor had just finished filming three movies in a row
Chris Pratt is taking a six-month break from acting to spend more time with his family, which consists of wife Anna Faris and their son, Jack.
He shared with Parade magazine: “I’ve been on the road for 14 months – I did three movies back to back to back – so I’m taking six months off.”
The trio will spend time “island hopping” and enjoying everything the beaches have to offer.
He continued: “I’m taking Jack to Jack’s Beach – which is what we named the little stretch of beach on an island up on the San Juan Islands where we got a place. We’re going to go back to the fort we built about a month and a half ago when we went for a short visit and see if that’s still there. If not, we’re going to build it again.”
The 37-year-old actor had previously said he experienced a “dream summer” after filming three movies in a row, including Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
“It was 14 months on the road, so it’s nice not to have time to myself but to have time with my family. It’s been really great and a very much a needed thing so we’re thrilled. We’re fishing, crabbing, having fires, sitting around having dinner together, it’s just been great, the dream summer that we’ve all been waiting for.”
The star also joked that he doesn’t mind going back to work for the sake of promoting his films, as he thoroughly enjoys taking about himself.
He said: “This part is really grueling for a lot of people, I don’t find it to be super grueling. It’s kind of a natural fit for me, I really like talking about myself.”
