Chris Pratt’s not just one of the biggest stars in the world, he’s also a great husband

For the rest of us regular joes out there, it’s hard enough competing with Chris Pratt, star of Jurassic World, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Parks and Rec. Now that he’s revealed a talent for french braids? We’re screwed.

The actor has been showing off this skill for years, braiding his wife’s – actress Anna Faris – hair and sharing it on Instagram.

According to Buzzfeed, he also braided an intern’s hair during an interview, demonstrating both his aptitude for hair-styling and also his ability to multitask.

In an interview with InStyle, he explained how, when, and where he was able to add the French braid to his repertoire, “My sister taught me how to braid when we were younger. Then, I would braid Anna’s hair at night … it was a nice little ritual.”


I like to think of myself as a good husband and all-around capable dude. And then this guy has to go around braiding his wife’s hair?

“Her hair started breaking off at the top of the braid because she was sleeping on it. So Anna’s mom thought a French braid might distribute the pressure. She taught me when we were in Hawaii shooting Jurassic World.”

I’m not a movie star, so I’m already a notch below this guy. He also has like 13 or 14 abs, which puts me, let’s say, another 13 or 14 notches below him. And now he has this ridiculously adorable skill? I’m not sure even Ryan Reynolds can compete with him!

I give my wife massages, mix her drinks, and do all sorts of other stuff that makes her happy. But I’ve never touched her hair. At least not in any sort of “let me help you with that” way. I know my limits. Chris Pratt should respect that!

I like Chris Pratt. He’s funny, down to earth and my kind of handsome. But it’s pretty obnoxious for him to go around flaunting yet another attribute that many of us don’t have. I have no idea how hard it is to braid someone’s hair but I imagine it’s pretty tricky. And I’m not even talking about french braids, which, judging by how excited everyone seems to be by Pratt’s ability to do it, must be even harder.

More power to the dude, and I’m glad he’s able to help his wife. But I’d appreciate it if he’d take it down a notch. He’s making the rest of us look bad.
