Los Angeles: Chris Pratt started out byselling coupons but believes his stint with the job made him a better actor as it taught him to deal with rejection.
The “Passengers” actor feels everything was perfectly planned for his success in films, reported E!online.”I was selling coupons for things like oil changes or trips to a spa. I was great at that. That’s why I believe in God and the divine.
I feel like it was perfectly planned.People talk about rejection in Hollywood. I’m like, ‘You’re outta your mind. Did you ever have someone sic their dog on you at an audition?’ “Once you get smart about auditioning, you learn to audition before they say ‘Action’. You walk into the room as the character. You let them think the person you are is close to the character they want. You make them think you already are that guy,” Pratt, 37, said.
The actor also praised his big brother Dan for being “super-supportive”.”He was hands down the best big brother anyone could ask for, super-supportive and always helped me, and loved me, and took care of me.
“We spent our entire childhood, eight hours a day, wrestling. One Christmas, he was in a play, a musical, and sang, and it knocked everyone’s socks off. My mom was crying.
And I was like, ‘That’s what I want to do.'” PTI
