Chris Pratt acknowledges his 'genetic lottery' win

CHRIS Pratt believes "genetic lottery" has made his life easy.

The 'Jurassic World' actor admitted he has had a fairly easy life thanks to his background, conceding he has a privileged life because of his background and career choice.

He said: "I'm a white, straight, male, American movie star. Things are pretty f**king good for those guys."

The 35-year-old hunk - who has two-year-old son Jack with his wife Anna Faris, who he wed in 2009 - explained he can now see how straight-forward his life has been, having not had to face the same problems women or ethnic minorities face in the US, or in the rest of the world, despite the fact talking about it makes him sound "like a douche".

He told The Sunday Times newspaper: "I'm not smart enough to navigate this without coming across like a douche, but I was dealt a good hand. I never had to worry about cops pulling me over or somebody sexually assaulting me. I never had to worry about clean water. A lot of what I have was given by sheer genetic lottery. So if I walk around smug, I'd be a fool."
