Chris Pratt was a male stripper? Move over Channing Tatum

chris-pratt-stripper-gi.jpg Channing Tatum better make some room on the male-stripper-turned-Hollywood-hunk list. "Parks and Recreation" star Chris Pratt reveals in a new interview he used to take his clothes off for cash.

"I was always a very much naked person. I loved to always get naked," Pratt tells Buzzfeed of his teenage years. "I was very free, so I thought, I may as well get paid." Pratt says at 18 years old, he stripped at a handful of bachelorette parties, and even dropped trou at a party for his friend's grandmother. 

"I don't know how it got around to them, but they paid me $40," Pratt confesses. "I was never like 'Magic Mike,' you know. I did go one time and audition on a stage for a club, but I don't think I got the job. I don't think I'm a very good dancer."

Regardless of whether or not he's got the moves like Jagger -- er, um, Tatum -- Pratt proved he's still got a top-dollar physique by posting a shirtless selfie to Instagram ahead of his trip to London to shoot Marvel's forthcoming "Guardians of the Galaxy." Pratt told Zap2it at San Diego Comic-Con that while he had fun being "fat for the last eight years," getting those six-pack abs back was no sweat. "All you have to do is just book a Marvel movie and have a deadline that's like, 'If you don't [lose weight] then you might get fired,' and then it's easy." 

Before his turn as Star-Lord in "Guardians," Pratt plays the BFF and lawyer to Vince Vaughn in DreamWorks' "Delivery Man," in theaters Nov. 22. Hey, isn't it about time for People's Sexiest Man Alive issue ... ? We're just sayin' ...
