Chris Pratt Used To Live In A Scooby Doo Van, As Though He Wasn't Charming Enough

Chris Pratt harkened back to the old days this weekend, posting a photo to Facebook of the Scooby Doo van he used to live in before he was famous.

The "Guardians of the Galaxy" star, 35, previously opened up to Entertainment Weekly about his days working in Maui, living full time in his van. It was during this time that one day, while waiting tables at the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, he had a conversation with actress Rae Dawn Chong that ended up launching his eventual career.

''I was like, 'You're in the movies, right? I always wanted to be in the movies,''' he said. ''She said, 'You're cute. Do you act?' I was like, fuck it, 'Goddamn right I act! Put me in a movie!'''

Chong cast him in her directorial debut, "Cursed Part III," which led to his leaving both Maui and his "living in a van" days behind.

''The moment she told me she was bringing me to LA, I knew,'' he said. ''I was like, 'This is what I'm going to do with the rest of my life.'''
