Remember Chris Pratt’s crazy ripped selfie? Of course you do. You see it in your dreams.

But the one woman who has access to those abs in real life doesn’t seem as blown away by them as the rest of us, and once he’s done with his “Guardians of the Galaxy” duties, she’s perfectly content to see him lose the action-figure bod, according to Zap2It.

“He wasn’t always like that,” Pratt’s wife Anna Faris pointed out, which is certainly true — Pratt has spent the last few years adorably rotund, for his role as Andy on “Parks and Recreation,” for movie roles, and for fun.

“Don’t worry, I’m gonna pad him back up,” the “Mom” star told E!’s Giuliana Rancic at Sunday’s Emmy Awards.

“You know, we both love lifestyle — eating and drinking so much. I love cooking for him so, you know, somewhere in between maybe.”

Chris and Anna are the parents of 1-year-old Jack Pratt. Not a lot of fanfare was made about baby Jack’s somewhat premature appearance on Aug. 25 of last year. Instead of appearing on any magazine covers to showboat the news, new dad Chris Pratt Tweeted this message to his followers: “It’s a boy! Thanks for all your kind words. In lieu of gifts we ask that you mouth kiss a stranger.”
