Actor Chris Pratt recently revealed how he came to faith in Christ at a point of his life where he was going down another path.


Pratt has become one of the busiest celebrities in Hollywood but has not shied away from talking about his faith in public. In his most recent interview with Vanity Fair, the "Passengers" star revealed the unorthodox way he came to believe in Jesus Christ.


Pratt talked about living in a van on the beach in Hawaii when he was young, as he waited tables at a Bubba Gump Shrimp restaurant. During that time, he said he and his pals would send people to make alcohol runs to the store because they were not old enough to drink.


"I was sitting outside a grocery store ... And a guy named Henry came up and recognized something in me that needed to be saved. He asked what I was doing that night, and I was honest. I said, 'My friend's inside buying me alcohol.' 'You going to go party?' he asked. 'Yeah.' 'Drink and do drugs? Meet girls, fornication?' I was like, 'I hope so,'" Pratt recalled.

"It should've made me nervous but didn't. I said, 'Why are you asking?' He said, 'Jesus told me to talk to you ...' At that moment I was like, I think I have to go with this guy. He took me to church. Over the next few days I surprised my friends by declaring that I was going to change my life," he continued.


Vanity Fair pegged the highest grossing actor of 2014's story "strange" and "so distant from what we expect of a movie star." The article says in that moment, "he yielded," and "his path has been clear ever since."
