Though this is not his first role, Christopher Michael Pratt or ‘Chris Pratt’, has acted in several TV and movie projects before such as television shows like Everwood, The OC, and Parks, and Recreation, as well as films like Zero Dark Thirty, Her and Delivery Man.
His role in ‘Guardians’ as Star-Lord is his biggest and most exciting one to date. One that has propelled him into stardom and the hearts of many.
5 Reasons Why We Love Chris Pratt
He braids hair, girl’s hair
In a recent ET interview, Chris surprised many of us with his neat braiding skills. He had earlier posted a picture of his masterwork on Instagram, which led to the interviewer setting him up for a test.
The fact that Chris played along anyway, makes him all the much cooler! Scrunchie, this man knows his stuff!
He’s not afraid to appear as a goofball
Many of the roles that Chris has played are those of a sidekick dork. While it is annoying to be typecast as an idiot, he has no qualms playing such character. It is not until he auditioned for Star-Lord that he realized he could do much more than that, he could be a superhero!
His charms can also be seen off-screen if his recent press tour is anything to go by. Journos have reported him to be one extremely down to earth guy.
He can rap and dance
Flawlessly! Chris has mad skills!
Plus, he’s not too bad on the dancefloor either!
Spoiler alert! Some moves you see in Guardians Of The Galaxy were “choreographed” by the man himself. You know, he worked as a stripper before when he was busting his buns off for rent! Perhaps, he picked up his skills from there?
He takes his roles seriously
From chubby to hubba-hubba!
Not that we love him any less than but did you know Chris dramatically dropped 80 pounds and replaced it with 20 pounds muscles for his role in Guardians Of The Galaxy? And he did all that in the span of six months!
If that ain’t dedication, we don’t know what is!
Guess his hard work paid off handsomely, huh!?
He’s a doting husband and father
Chris is married to fellow funny person Anna Faris and together they have a son named Jack. The chemistry between these two is adorkable! Yes adorable and dorky, and the family is just loveable.
On his new physique: “She likes abs, but she likes her fat husband better because she gets to feed him.”
On his son: “Having to follow Jack around and pick up after him made me realize how often Anna had been doing that for me. It’s like, ‘Wait a minute, why is all this crap everywhere? Of right, someone was picking it up for me.’ So I’m not taking that for granted anymore.”

As fans cheer for their favourite team in the FIFA World Cup games, let us shift our focus and cheer for something else. Namely, the hot and handsome eye candies!
In case you do not know, football (or soccer for all you American speaking fellows) is regarded as The Beautiful Game. And while we know that this is due to the power, moves and strategy of the game, we can’t help but feel that there is more to that. Like say, masculine physique, glorious legs, tight abs and cute smiles.
In case you need some convincing, here is a list of footballers that we wish played The Beautiful Game shirtless. You’re welcome, ladies
Christiano Ronaldo of Portugal. Come on now, did you think we can have this list without this finger-lickin’-good fellow?
Francesco Totti of Italy. Mama mia!
Mats Hummels of Germany. We feel so conflicted between his cute smile, hot body and skilful moves…
Olivier Giroud of France. Should his football career not work out, we just want Giroud to know that he can certainly make it in the modelling biz (or as our personal bodyguard/trainer/butler/etc…).
Orestis Karnezis from Greece. This handsome goalkeeper has definitely caught our hearts!
Mario Gotze from Germany. An adorable baby face and a beach perfect body — we really want to say Guten Tag to Gotze all day, every day!
Claudio Marchisio from Italy. What can we say, he had us with his beautiful blue eyes and Italian charm!
James Troisi from Australia. Tall, handsome and good on the field. Some personal time with Mr. Troisi would be much appreciated, don’t you think so?
Ermin Bicakcic from Bosnia. While there is no denying that he is great with the football game, special mention has got to go out to his gravity-defying hair.
Panagiotis Kone from Greece. Not to be confused with the hottie above, Kone is the perfect example of how a dapper and hipster footballer would look like. And damn, look at his tattoos!
Ciro Immobile from Italy. Aww, we love you too Ciro!

Goodbye metrosexual, hello spornosexual!
Two decades ago, the world was introduced to ‘metrosexual’ men – young and urban males with a refined sense of taste and is not shy of vanity. Today, these fine young men appear to have left their teens, and matured into what they now call ‘spornosexual.’
This new term embodies the modern day man who’s often at the gym pumping iron and working on his wellbeing. He does not mind spending his time and money on his physical upkeep. He finds his physique to be his best asset – and is definitely not afraid from showing off his wonderful results.
In simple terms, he is the Mr. Hot we all wouldn’t mind kneeling for! (And yes, we are obviously still not over Eye Want Candy Tom Hiddleston.)
For you to have a better understanding of this newfound term, here are some visually tantalising examples of spornosexual guys.

We pay tribute to the guys that have won Malaysians’ hearts with their badminton skills. Here are the heroes of Thomas World Cup 2014!
On May 25, 2014, most of Malaysia pretty much had their eyes glued to the screen and were at the edge of their seats for one united reason – hoping that our national badminton players would bring back the Thomas Cup (and a public holiday).
Sadly, lady luck seemed to favour the Japanese more as Ueda smashed their way to Japan’s first win. But while we might have lost the cup, let it be known that these strong athletes will always be winners in the heart of Malaysians.
You’ve seen them play, were amazed by what they’ve got and feel ever so proud of what they represent. So now, why not get to know more about our national badminton players more.
Here are some fun facts about the 2014 Thomas Cup Heroes from Malaysia.

Chong Wei Feng
Born in Kedah and ironically having an almost similar name with another person in this list, Chong Wei Feng is actually a very random person. Specifically, his Instagram account is filled with some of the most random entries we’ve ever seen.
Nonetheless, his Instagram profile is set on private and we wish to respect his privacy — but we’re quite certain that we wouldn’t mind some extra followers. So do request and witness his randomness yourselves.
Oh, and the fact that he is pleasant to the eyes is a definite plus point too
Tan Wee Kiong — Goh V Shem
This is certainly one partnership to look out for in the badminton world.
Interestingly, the two are birthday buddies! While born in different years, V Shem celebrates his birthday on May 20, while Wee Kiong is the day after. Who knows, maybe this is a factor of their compatibility?
Tan Boon Heong — Hoon Thien How
This doubles pair was the one that put Malaysia into the Thomas Cup finals. In a match against Indonesia, Boon Heong managed to retrieve a lucky shot between his legs – yes, his legs. Talk about skills and relfexes!
Handsome, talented and close to home, we welcome Lawrence Wong into our league of extremely fine Eye Want Candy gentlemen!

Apart from his modelling, acting and hosting gigs, this handsome fellow also sings!
