Chris Pratt putting acting on hold to focus on family

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 20 (UPI) — Chris Pratt is putting his successful acting career on hold to focus on his family.

The 37-year-old actor revealed in an interview with Parade that he will take a six-month break from filming to spend time with wife Anna Faris and their 4-year-old son, Jack.

“I’ve been on the road for 14 months — I did three movies back to back to back — so I’m taking six months off,” Pratt told the magazine.

“I’m taking Jack to Jack’s Beach — which is what we named the little stretch of beach on an island up on the San Juan Islands where we got a place,” he revealed. “We’re going to go back to the fort we built … and see if that’s still there. If not, we’re going to build it again.”

Pratt, who filmed The Magnificent Seven, Passengers and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in succession, married Faris in Bali, Indonesia, in 2009. The couple welcomed Jack in August 2012.

“I have heard some people say ‘Don’t go to bed mad.’ I think that’s garbage,” the actor told Entertainment Tonight while sharing his best relationship advice at the New York premiere of The Magnificent Seven on Monday.

“Sometimes you’ve got to go to bed mad, but at least touch toes, you know what I mean? At least just touch toes. Say, ‘We will deal with it later. I think I am going to get some sleep,’ and touch toes,” he recommended.

The Magnificent Seven co-stars Denzel Washington and opens in theaters Friday. Passengers with Jennifer Lawrence will follow Dec. 21, with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 to open May 5, 2017.
