This June 21, the actor will turn 38. Here is a look at his net worth, career and marriage to Anna Faris.

Chris Pratt Lifestyle and Hobbies
Chris Pratt might be earning millions, but he’s quite the handyman. The actor posted to Instagram a restored 1965 Volkswagen Beetle he won playing blackjack. The self-taught mechanic spent 12 years restoring it to its current pristine condition. Here’s Chris Pratt’s Instagram post about the car:
I love my 1965 VW Beetle. Building this car has been a real labor of love. And a lot of trial and error. Started with a $2500 scrapper that I won playing blackjack. Cut to 12 years and many more dollars later and it's complete! (For now) They just don't make them like they used to. I had no idea how to work on cars and learned through manuals and videos on YouTube. Nobody is gonna walk into a car museum in 40 years and say, "Whoa! Look! A 2003 Jetta! Fully restored." Classic cars (this one is technically an antique) continue to get better with age. And it's a dream come true to roll this one through the Hollywood hills. #CaliforniaDreamin #LoveBug

In 2015, Anna Faris bought him something he’s always wanted as a combined Father’s Day and birthday gift: a piano. Although the price tag is undisclosed, the actor told E! it was the nicest gift he’s ever received.
Chris Pratt will celebrate his birthday as one of the most popular actors in Hollywood. He hit his stride in the last two years with leading roles in movies that were blockbusters. His wife is also among the entertainment world’s elite, and the couple has a Jurassic-sized lifestyle with plenty of new — and likely lucrative — projects on the horizon.
