Since his scene-stealing work as dim bulb Andy Dwyer on “Parks and Recreation,” Pratt became an A-list action star with roles in the “Jurassic World” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” franchises. He had to maintain a fit, lean, muscular shape for those films, and he credits his physical transformation in part to the Daniel Fast, a biblically-inspired, 21-day diet plan. “I did it with my pastor,” Pratt said on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” of the plan, which bars consumption of meat, sugar, and alcohol.
According to USA Today, the pastor of which Pratt spoke is Chad Veach, a former Hillsong minister who moved on to preside over Zoe Church, a Hillsong-affiliated place of worship. Pratt regularly attends service there, along with fiancee-now-wife Katherine Schwarzenegger. In an Instagram story (via People), Pratt credited his church with helping him through his painful split from first wife, Anna Faris. “My church community was there for me every step of the way, never judging, just gracefully accompanying me on my walk,” he said.
