The 35-year-old "Guardians of Galaxy" star opened about his past struggles to manage his weight in an interview to Men's Health UK, said The Hollywood Reporter.

"I put on weight because I had fallen in love with a woman who loved to feed her man. I was her little Hansel out in the woods and she was fattening me up to put me in the fire.

"It was like Momma Bear and Papa Bear. She would eat a little bit, I would eat all of mine and the rest of hers." said Pratt.

The actor also wanted to gain weight for his role in "Parks and Recreation". "I announced it to the whole cast, and then it became a bit of a game - how fat can I get and how fast. I would eat four burgers at every read. I became really fat," said the, " he said.

Pratt's' weight continued to fluctuate depending on which role he was preparing to play, until he decided once and for all to stop.

"I had gone back and forth, lost weight for 'Moneyball', got fat again, then trimmed down for 'Zero Dark Thirty', then gained it all back again for 'Andy'. That's when I saw 'Zero Dark Thirty' and right after walking out I was like - 'I am going to get in shape and I am never going to be fat again,' Pratt added.
