Chris Pratt's wife loves The Only Way Is Essex
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 meant he was able 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."
In addition to speaking about his wife's love for 'TOWIE' and it's stars - who include Gemma Collins, Chloe Sims and Bobby Norris - the actor also opened up 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."
