Chris Pratt’s wife Katherine Schwarzenegger, along with his Marvel co-stars Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey Jr., took to their social media platforms last night to defend Pratt when users on Twitter and Instagram widely proclaimed him the worst of the four big Chrises in Hollywood. Pratt has often been grouped with other A-list, light brown-hair, light-eyed Chrises: Chris Evans, Chris Pine, and Chris Hemsworth.
Producer Amy Berg started the discussion over the weekend on Twitter, writing, “one has to go,” alongside their photos. The comments to her post overwhelmingly suggested that Pratt needed to, in part because some suspect he may be a quiet Donald Trump supporter due to his decision to not participate in the Avengers fundraiser for Joe Biden and for a recent “insensitive” voting joke that drew criticism on social media.
