Chris Pratt Talks the End of Jurassic World Franchise
Chris Pratt knows how to train a dinosaur, but a baby? Well, he’s got some help for that.
The Jurassic World Dominion star welcomed baby daughter Eloise with wife Katherine Schwarzenegger on May 21, joining sister Lyla Maria who was born in August2020 Chris said Katherine, whom he married in June 2019, gets the credit for holding everything together.
“Katherine just has the most amazing maternal instincts,” the actor told Live From E! at the film’s June 6 premiere in Los Angeles. “She just really knows what to do. I’ll follow her lead.”
Chris, who has played Owen Grady in three Jurassic World movies—including Jurassic World Dominion, in theaters June 10—said the latest film marks the final chapter in the Jurassic saga.
The actor told us he does get hands-on in the diaper department—and even compared the experience to his T-Rex co-stars.
“Luckily they smell worse than dino droppings, but they’re much smaller,” Chris joked. “They are much more manageable.”
Chris, who is a notoriously big fan of snacks, says that his latest indulgences have all been dictated by his daughters.
“Lately I’ve been eating a lot of pizza and everything off my kids’ plates,” he told Live From E!. “I cook them lunch and they only eat half and I think ‘Well, calories don’t count if it was on their plate.’ It’s a lot of chicken nuggets and fries and tater tots.”
Sounds pretty good to us! Except Chris acknowledged that it’s taken a toll on his waistline.
“I stopped being on camera when I wrapped Guardians [of the Galaxy] 3 a few weeks ago,” he said. “I tried my suit on today and I was like ‘I don’t know if this thing’s going to fit anymore.'”
We know the feeling, Chris!
