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 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, his then-wife, 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.
