Chris Pratt Returns to Restaurant Chain He Worked at 20 Years Ago and ‘Ate Off People’s Plates’ [PIC]
Chris Pratt shared a photo of himself in a booth at Bubba Gump Shrimp Company where he used to eat off people’s plates.
He waited tables there and explained, “Twenty years ago I was a waiter at Bubba Gump Shrimp Company. Every time I go back I’m reminded of the thousands of shrimp I ate off of people’s plates on the way back to the kitchen. Please tip your server. Leave at least 20%. Also leave some shrimp.”
During an appearance on Live With Kelly and Ryan last June, Pratt discussed his time at Bubba Gump, even revealing that he was discovered there.
“Eighteen years ago I was waiting tables in Maui and working in a restaurant, living in a van,” Pratt recalled. “A director came in, I was at my table and she said, ‘Hey, you’re cute, do you act?’ I was like, ‘Yeah, I act. You should put me in a movie.’ And then four days later I was in Los Angeles and I never went back.”
Pratt went on to praise the “really good food” and explain how he went above and beyond the call of duty while working at the restaurant.
“I ate the food for the year I was there. I mean, that’s where I ate. Off of people’s plates typically,” he joked. “… I was the Gumper of the Year. I got my name on a plaque. I swear to God, I got my name on a plaque.”
