Chris Pratt is shocked by success he has had in Hollywood and never expected to achieve what he has

Chris Pratt is shocked by the attention he has received in Hollywood over the past 10 years.

"I have enjoyed this entire journey, the whole time I have been at this for 15 years. My enthusiasm has been turned up to 10 since about 2001 when I didn't have to be a waiter anymore."
