Chris Pratt: My Mistake, I'm Not Impotent
"I'm not sure I knew what 'impotent' meant when I said it."
Chris Pratt is clarifying remarks he gave Men's Health U.K. while talking about being overweight in the past.
Pratt had said he was "impotent" and "depressed" when he was overweight, but he expanded on his comments during an interview with Access Hollywood.
"I'm not sure I knew what 'impotent' meant when I said it," he said. "I had a lower sex drive, to be honest with you. Everything about my spirit was dull. I didn't feel great, and I think people will relate to that."
Pratt continued, "I don't want to ever come out against sounding like I'm talking smack about people who have issues with their body weight, or don't have issues with their body weight. To each their own, but to those who felt the way I felt at that time, there's really hope."
He said that people can "make a big change" with hard work and dedication. The actor added, "And it will affect you, not just physically, not just the way you look, but how you feel and how your spirit feels and how your penis feels — especially the penis part!"
