Chris Pratt Talks His Big 4 Goals As A Hollywood Actor And How He Blew Through His First $75K Paycheck Fast


It’s hard to believe that there was ever a time that Chris Pratt struggled as an actor. It seems like he’s practically in everything now, from voicing Garfield in the newly-released The Garfield Movie to having the lead role in the Amazon series The Terminal List. To go from waiting tables to his initial television roles in Everwood and Parks and Recreation, to starring in big Hollywood blockbusters is a working actor’s dream come true. Now that Pratt’s acting career isn’t slowing down anytime soon, he talked about what his four career goals are and the way he blew through his first $75K paycheck fast.

It was reported back in 2021 that Chris Pratt was one of the big-name actors reportedly earning a massive salary for his streaming show The Terminal List. Not to mention, his recent movies have been high-grossing at the box office, like The Super Mario Bros. Movie and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. However, it was revealed on SiriusXM that Samuel L. Jackson is still the highest-grossing actor of all time thanks to Avengers: Endgame, with Pratt at the #4 spot. That said, the Marvel star revealed being a high-grossing actor was never a priority to him, and that he has other goals in mind:

I didn’t think about it until someone brought it up to me and they’re like, ‘Samuel L. Jackson’s the highest gross movie star of all time.’ You know, there’s not a ton of tangible goals really. When you think about Hollywood, you think about, becoming an actor, you know, there’s a small handful of things that from the outside you could go, ‘Wow, that’d be really cool.’ You know, winning an Oscar, winning a Golden Globe or a Hollywood Star or, you know, hosting SNL. These kinds of things that you see, you’re like, ‘Wow, God. How trippy would it be to be able to do that one day,’ you know? But other than that, it’s just like, for me, it was always like an on off switch and the success was am I still waiting tables or not? And if I’m paying for my lifestyle through acting, that was success, so it’s been like that for 20 plus years now.
