Chris Pratt reconsiders the Burt Reynolds comparisons


Chris Pratt doesn’t mind a good Burt Reynolds and Loni Anderson comparison for him and wife Anna Faris — or at least he didn’t until now.

The “Jurassic World” starrocks a pretty commanding mustache in the new dinosaur disaster sequel, and while it could be thicker — “It’s no Ron Swanson,” he readily admits — it still has a decent amount of presence. So much presence, in fact, that one earlier viewer of the film remarked that if you squint he could be mistaken for Reynolds.

How does Pratt feel about that comparison? He’s thrilled. “James Gunn told me that I was like Burt Reynolds. I love that,” Pratt says with a laugh. “Me and Anna are like Burt and Loni. I love it. Sounds good to me.”

That’s when it becomes clear that Pratt isn’t quite familiar with how the marriage between Reynolds and Anderson ended more than 20 years ago: with name-calling, mudslinging, allegations of infidelity and abuse and a bitter, contentious divorce battle that didn’t really subside until last year when Reynolds forked over a final $155,000 payment.

Pratt’s reaction when told about that outcome? “Oh, s—. Scratch that,” he says. “We’re like the Burt and Loni that ends well.”
