From playing self-proclaimed FBI agents to Meredith Quill’s little Star-Lord to a motorcycling raptor trainer, Chris Pratt as done a lot in a relatively short amount of time. The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 frontman’s rapid rise to super-stardom over the last few year’s was capped off with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame earlier today.
Pratt received his star in front of his friends, family, and Guardians of the Galaxy and co-stars. Marvel Studios executives Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, and Victoria Alonso. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn and actress Anna Faris, Pratt’s wife, each spoke before Pratt delivered his acceptance speech.

Watching @prattprattpratt’s speech as he gets his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, after both @annafaris & I gave our speeches. Kinda proud. Both Chris and Anna made me cry with their heartfelt and grateful sentiments about their relationship, the fans, their coworkers, and the lives they lead. A lot of these things can be stuffy affairs – I was lucky to be a part of something where all the people involved had such a deep love for each other. And I was incredibly touched that Kevin, Lou, and Victoria from Marvel showed up as did @zoesaldana, @davebautista, @michael_rooker and @pomin8r. I try so hard not to use the word blessed on Instagram, but there I go. What a lovely, amazing day. Meanwhile, Chris and Anna’s son Jack couldn’t care less about any of it (except he was very excited to meet Yondu, and he had a nice “oblodoblobiddlitoobut” conversation with him). ❤️
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is in theaters May 5.
