TORONTO — Actor Chris Pratt has revealed he worked as a teen stripper.

“I was always a very much naked person. I loved to always get naked,” he told BuzzFeed. “I was very free, so I thought, I may as well get paid.”

The Parks and Recreation star, now 34, said he stripped at private parties but didn’t have what it takes to perform in a strip club.

“I did go one time and audition on a stage for a club, but I don’t think I’m a very good dancer,” he recalled.

Pratt is currently starring in Delivery Man, a comedy about a man (Vince Vaughn) who, after making 691 donations to a sperm bank in his early 20s, discovers he is the biological father of more than 500 kids.

Pratt, who is married to actress Anna Faris, said 691 sperm donations in three years is plausible.

“In my late teens and early 20s? Oh jeez, you could have taken that much sperm out just by doing my laundry, or cleaning my sheets and laundering my socks,” he said. “If I thought about it, I would have made a fortune myself.”
