His old look isn't gone forever

Dad bod enthusiasts of the world, rejoice! It turns out that former dad bod specimen-turned super buff action star Chris Pratt is making plans to return to his former glory.

In an interview on The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert told the actor that he “kinda misses ‘Fat Pratt.'”

Pratt, for his part, revealed that Colbert wasn’t the only one who missed his old look, telling the late-night host that he misses his larger self — and so does wife Anna Faris.

When asked if he missed “fat Pratt” at all, Chris responded, “Yeah, I do,” he said. “My wife does too. She likes to cook, and I don’t get to eat as much of her cooking as I used to.”

Pratt did, however, let Colbert and fans know that his six-pack might make way for a dad bod soon.

“He’s not gone forever,” he said. “He’s just on vacation for a couple years, but he’s coming back.”

Watch the full interview below.
