Chris Pratt Thanks Wife Anna Faris in Emotional Hollywood Walk of Fame Speech: ‘You Have My Heart’
Chris Pratt is officially a member of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and he had no shortage of people to thank for helping him get there during his acceptance ceremony on Friday.

She then spoke about their son Jack, who was born prematurely with health complications. “He stood by me and held me and was my anchor,” she said of Pratt. Jack, 4, was in attendance, and stole the show when it came time to take pictures (below).
Faris also thanked Pratt for his sense of humor, saying, “At the premiere of Guardians 2, on the red carpet he whispered something unbelievably inappropriate into my ear and it was awesome. Honey, I want to thank you for being the most incredible person. I love you so much.”
Pratt was visibly emotional when he took the podium. “I’m a man of faith and I believe that God works in mysterious ways and gives us signs and gifts in life — and those gifts oftentimes come in the form of people,” he began. “So I’ll just spend the rest of my time expressing gratitude for the people in my life who are gifts.”
Speaking first to his mother, Pratt said, “She gave absolutely everything she had to raise us, every fiber of her being. And oftentimes we weren’t cash-rich, but we were never love-poor. You gave everything and you were…
