It’s time to make a choice, ladies: Pratt or Tatum? Chris Pratt, star of the popular comedy Parks and Recreation, tells BuzzFeed that yes, he was a stripper in his younger years. The now 34 year old says that, while he wasn’t a stage presence like fellow star Channing Tatum, he did perform at the occasional birthday and bachelorette party. “I was always a very much naked man,” Pratt says. “I loved to always get naked. I was very free, so I thought I may as well get paid.” Pratt confesses that he took the odd job or two, ranging from his friend’s grandmother’s birthday party to yard work—whatever pays the bills. “[The birthday party] was a surprise. I don’t know how it got around to them, but they paid me $40. I was never like Magic Mike, you know. I did go one time and audition on a stage for a club, but I don’t think I got the job. I don’t think I’m a very good dancer.” When he wasn’t practicing his dance moves, Pratt had several other jobs at a local burger diner, as a room service waiter, a bingo hall attendant, and others. He tells BuzzFeed, “I babysat and mowed lawns; I picked blackberries and sold them. I was very enterprising as a kid. I was always trying some way to make money.” Chris Pratt is married to actress Anna Faris and stars on NBC’s Parks and Recreation. Future films include Delivery Man (2013), The Lego Movie (2014), and Guardians of the Galaxy (2014).
