Lake Stevens native, Chris Pratt has revealed that he is taking a break from acting so he can be with his family. “I’ve been on the road for 14 months–I did three movies back-to-back-to-back–so I’m taking six months off,” he tells Parade magazine. He, his wife Anna Faris and their 3-year-old son Jack plan on spending a lot of time outdoors. “I’m taking Jack to Jack’s Beach–which is what we named the little stretch of beach on an island up on the San Juan Islands where we got a place,” he explains. “We’re going to go back to the fort we built about a month and a half ago when we went for a short visit and see if that’s still there. If not, we’re going to build it again.”
