If the whole acting thing doesn’t work out for Chris Pratt -- unlikely, considering the “Jurassic World” star has two major films in the works -- he should consider a career in motivational speaking.
Pratt took to Instagram last week after spending nearly 80 hours awake and at work on “Passengers” and “Guardians of the Galaxy 2.”
Celebrities often complain about long days and grueling production schedules, but Pratt had nothing but positive things to say.
“I am doing what I love. It doesn't feel like work. Even though it is,” he clarified.
“I'm having fun. I'm overcome with joy and gratitude.”

Pratt credits his time as a struggling actor for his perspective and continued appreciation despite the industry’s harsh realities.
“Fifteen years ago I felt the same passion I feel today, but I had very little opportunity,” Pratt wrote.
“I had to hustle hard and go hungry. I had to eat sardines and figure out how to get gas money.”
But Pratt was determined, and issues an empowering missive to anyone who might find themselves in a similar situation.
"I never had a plan B," he insisted. "I never stopped believing. Ever."
“Don't give up. Apply constant pressure for as long as it takes. It will break before you do. Go get it!
