As Chris Pratt proves, nice guys don't always finish last.
In the May issue of GQ, the actor praises Anna Faris, his wife of nearly three years, saying: "I married way out of my pay grade. I have no idea how that happened. She's so goddamn funny and so good. She is a legit comedy powerhouse. But I'm not going to question it too much. I don't know what it is, man. I guess chicks dig love handles or something."
Pratt is equally lucky in love on camera, romancing everyone from Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation) to Alison Brie (The Five-Year Engagement). "I don't know why the characters I'm playing could possibly end up with these people," he says. "I don't even know how I ended up with the woman that I'm with [in real life]!"
Self-deprecating humor aside, the 32-year-old actor also offers some sage advice for those still searching for The One.
"Just be comfortable with who you are. The truth is that any amount of trickery or wearing cool shirts with rad designs or using pick-up lines, or any of this bullsh-t like trying to neg girls, isn't going to matter. It won't pay off when she realizes that you're full of sh-t."
Pratt adds: "Girls like that quiet confidence. And not in a way like, 'I'm a dick and I don't care.' Just: 'Hey, I'm comfortable with who I am.' You want to be with a girl who likes you for you. Just be yourself and forget all of the stuff you read in GQ magazine."
