The wealth of Jack Pratt
In the middle of 2020, Jack does not yet have the means to earn on his own, although he probably benefits from his parents’ success.

Relationship between parents and life to date
Jack’s father Chris met Anna Frais on the set of “Take Me Home Tonight”, in which the two played the role of love interests. The two dated for a year before getting engaged, and after witnessing a friend’s wedding, the two “eloped” and got married in Bali, Indonesia. They then returned home and lived in Hollywood Hills, California.
There was a lot of drama surrounding Jack’s birth in 2012 when he was born nine weeks premature doctors even gave the couple a poor initial prognosis. Despite this, he was able to survive and live a healthy life, with Chris stating that his son’s premature birth helped build his faith in God.
The family lived quietly for a few years before his parents separated in 2017, leading to a divorce the following year. He shares custody of both parents, who have made significant efforts to keep him away from the public eye. His father later remarried in 2018 while his mother later got engaged to cinematographer Michael Barrett.
Mother – Anna Faris
Jack’s mother Anna started out as an aspiring novelist, though she took up acting to try and pay the bills while she worked on her book. Eventually, she realized that she was getting solid payday for her acting, which led her to focus on regular work.
In the 2000s, she rose to fame as a main character in the ‘Scary Movie” movie franchise, in which the main character Cindy Campbell is played; the films were parodies of some of the most popular horror films of the time.
She also continued to get a lot of attention for her comedic roles. Some of her famous movies include “The Hot Chick”, “Lost in Translation”, “My Super Ex-Girlfriend” and “The Dictator”. She also had a notable recurring role in the final season of “Friends”, playing the surrogate mother of Monica and Chandler’s twins. In addition to her live-action work, she also lent her voice to several animated projects, including “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” and “Alvin and the Chipmunks.”
Father – Chris Pratt
Chris grew up in Virginia, Minnesota, where his father worked in home remodeling after living most of his career as a coal miner. His mother, on the other hand, worked at a local supermarket. After a few years in Virginia, the family moved and settled in Lake Stevens, Washington State where he attended Lake Stevens High School and joined the local wrestling team. From an early age, he was determined to find fame and fortune. After graduating from high school, he enrolled in a community college but dropped out to devote more time to efforts to achieve his goal.
He ended up in Maui, Hawaii, where he became involved with the Jews for Jesus organization. However, he was homeless after briefly working as a daytime stripper, but then worked at a local restaurant where he was discovered by director Rae Dawn Chong, who would cast him in her Los Angeles directorial debut. This led to more work for him and he embarked on a career as an actor. His first TV appearance was in “The Huntress” in 2001, and after its cancellation, he joined the fourth season of “The OC” before landing a small role in the movie “Wanted”, starring James McAvoy.
Chris Pratt’s success
In 2009, Pratt landed his breakout role in the sitcom “Parks and recreation”, in which he portrayed Andy Dwyer. The series tells the story of employees who work for the Parks Department of a fictional Indiana town. He was nominated for several awards during his six-year run and his performance was critically acclaimed. The role opened up more mainstream projects for him, including “Moneyball”, “Zero Dark Thirty”, “Her”, and “Jennifer’s Body”.
In 2014, he landed his first starring role when he was cast as the Marvel Comics character Star-Lord in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’.
The film was an unexpected hit and helped further improve his career. He has appeared in other movies in the MCU such as ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”, “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame”. He also voices the main character in the movie “The Lego Movie”, and is the star of the continuation of the “Jurassic Park” franchise – “Jurassic World” – with both movies making big money at the box office. Some of his other recent projects include “Passengers” and “The Magnificent Seven”. He will also reprise his role in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3which is in production.
Jack may have a lot in common with his parents due to his upbringing, such as his father’s non-denominational Christian faith. His father was initially raised Lutheran, although his views changed in Hawaii when he began working with Jews for Jesus. It was also shortly after his work there that his acting career was launched. His father also does not believe in choosing political parties, although he has donated to Barack Obama’s campaign in the past. Chris is currently married to Katherine Schwarzenegger, daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger. The couple is assuming a child.
