A “beautiful, tropical blue” festive season awaits...
Chris Pratt and wife Anna Faris plan to spend the holidays under the sun along with their four-year-old son Jack in California. However, they also want to embrace the traditional holiday spirit and teach his son the meaning of Christmas.
He told Metro newspaper: “[We] will have a sandy, beautiful, tropical blue Christmas.”
The star recalled how his own parents Kathy and Daniel Pratt raised him, and the values he learned about the holiday season along the way.
“When I was a kid, we didn’t have a whole lot. My parents really played the long game one Christmas, letting us know we just weren’t going to be able to get anything for Christmas – we didn’t have the money.
We all knew that. We just got to the point: don’t ask for things. And when we came down on Christmas morning, we got everything. I got a mountain bike, a bow and arrow, a microscope – all the things I had wanted.
They had kept the presents from us and let us think for months we wouldn’t be having a good Christmas. I think they just saved up, maybe they donated blood or something. It makes me choke up thinking about it.”
And Chris is looking to spoil his wife, as he has always acknowledged everything that made them fall in love.
He explained: “When I recently shot an episode of ‘Mom‘ on CBS, which is my wife’s sitcom, that was really fantastic. It’s nice, you know, when you’ve been with someone for years, to see them in a different kind of working an social environment.
You get to see a side of someone you don’t always see. I got to rediscover things about her that made me love her. We fell in love on a film set and it was nice to see her on a set and how much everyone loves her, how nice she is to everybody. On top of her talent, she’d very much a good person.”
