Chris Pratt has revealed his wife was obsessed with 'The Only Way Is Essex' when they were over in the UK, while he was filming 'Guardians of the Galaxy'
Chris Pratt has confessed his wife Anna Faris is obsessed with 'The Only Way Is Essex'.
The 'Jurassic World' star - who has been married to the 'House Bunny' actress since 2009 - has revealed watching the ITVBe reality show with his wife allowed him to perfect his Essex accent.
Speaking on an episode of 'The Graham Norton Show' - which airs on BBC One tonight (29.05.15) - he said: "When I was filming 'Guardians of the Galaxy' in the UK we watched a lot of garbage TV and my wife [Anna Faris] went crazy for TOWIE. She fell in love with the show and I started picking up the accent so now the only British one I can do is an Essex one."
The actor also spoke about being "reprimanded" by his 'Parks and Recreation' bosses for showing too much flesh on the US comedy.
He explained: "We were shooting a scene where my character turns up naked at my co-star's door. I was wearing skin-coloured underwear and I wasn't getting quite the right reaction I was hoping for. It was late in the day so I decided to improvise and drop my trousers for the take.
"Then I got a letter from NBC's HR department that said, 'There is a protocol about nude scenes. This is not a joke and you are being reprimanded and you can't go around telling people about this like some kind of joke'. I've framed the letter."
