Still handsome but maybe-not-so-sweet man Chris Pratt stepped out last night for the very important, very glam occasion that is the Teen Choice Awards SANS WEDDING RING.
The star of all the blockbusters – whose career high point is still ‘Parks and Recreation‘ (don’t @ me) – appeared at the ceremony in Los Angeles to accept a giant surfboard for Choice Sci-Fi Movie Actor.
Pratt was presented with the surfboard for his role in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2‘ by none other than bonafide ~star~ Millie Bobby Brown, Sia‘s muse Maddie Ziegler and musical wunderkind Grace VanderWaal.
He was also nominated for Choice Movie ‘Ship with Zoe Saldana for the same role, but lost out to ‘Beauty and the Beast‘ for some inexplicable reason.
He used his speech to, in his charming way, admit that he lied his way to a bigshot Hollywood career:
When I came to Los Angeles, I came from Hawaii and I had all of this blond hair and I was tan and I met an agent because I really wanted to be an actor and get an agent.
He said, ‘Wow, bro, you must surf.’ And I said, ‘Uh, yeah.’ And that was the first of many lies that I’ve told to get to where I am today.
Pratt’s Choice outing was his first public appearance since he and Anna Faris last week announced their separation after eight years of marriage, dashing all hope for the rest of us of ever finding and holding onto true love.
IMHO, showing up to the awards night without his wedding ring is a definite signal to eligible ladies that he is both single and ready to mingle/that it really is over and you can put your hopes of an A-list celebrity reconciliation in the bin.
But let’s be realistic, we would’ve been stunned and bursting with questions if he turned up at the ceremony still wearing the symbol of his love and dedication to Faris. Or at least put any plans
we anyone may or may not have to steal his affections on hold.
We’re not animals, sheesh.
