Weight gain made Chris Pratt feel ‘impotent’

Los Angeles, June 6 (IANS) Hollywood star Chris Pratt says he was unable to have sex after he gained weight for the character he played in TV sitcom “Parks and Recreation”.

Pratt, who starred as Andy Dwyer on the show, said: “I was impotent, fatigued, emotionally depressed. I had real health issues that were affecting me in a major way. It’s bad for your heart, your skin, your system, your spirit,” reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The actor was nearly 300Ibs (136 kg) in 2013 and has admitted that at that time, he thought his popularity was linked to his rotund appearance.

“I saw myself in an episode and in a matter of two moments very close together, I thought, ‘Oh my God, I’m getting fat’. And then almost immediately I did something else and I thought, ‘Holy crap, I’ve never seen myself funnier.’ And I put the two together,” he told Men’s Health magazine.

However, the 35-year-old was convinced he needed to shed his excess weight after starring as a Navy SEAL in the 2012 action thriller “Zero Dark Thirty”.

“I’d gone back and forth, lost weight for ‘Moneyball’, got fat again, then trimmed down for ‘Zero Dark Thirty’, then gained it all back again for Andy. That’s when I saw ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ and right after walking out I was like: ‘I’m going to get in shape and I’m never going to be fat again,'” he said.
