Chris Pratt explains ‘big difference’ between son Jack, daughters Lyla and Eloise

Chris Pratt said his 11-year-old son, Jack, has a very different personality than his two daughters, 3-year-old Lyla and 1-year-old Eloise.

“I hate to make generalizations based on gender, but, in my experience, girls are more emotional,” the “Parks and Recreation” star, 44, told E! News Monday. “They’ve got me wrapped around their finger. It’s wild.”

Chris Pratt thinks his daughters are much more sensitive than his son.

“I hate to make generalizations based on gender, but, in my experience, girls are more emotional,” the actor said.

Pratt — who shares Jack with ex-wife Anna Faris and Lyla and Eloise with current wife Katherine Schwarzenegger — shared that all three of his children are “cuddly and snuggly,” but his daughters “don’t like to roughhouse as much” as his son.

“I’ll hit them with a pillow, and they’ll go, ‘Daddy, that hurt my feelings,’” he said of his little girls, adding, “They like to hear stories more than they like to wrestle.”

The actor said another “big difference” is that Lyla and Eloise are much more organized than Jack because they “take after their mother.”

“Even the differences between my two daughters just goes to show that every child is a little bit different,” he noted.

Pratt said he can roughhouse more with Jack, whom he shares with ex-wife Anna Faris.

“They like to hear stories more than they like to wrestle,” he said of his daughters.

Being a father of three can be all-consuming, so Pratt now goes for roles that allow him to have a better work-life balance.

“It works nicely to have a job that allows me to put my kids to bed at night and be present,” he said of taking voice-overs instead of his usual on-screen acting gigs. “Taking voice work means that’s a movie that I don’t have to be on the road.”

The Marvel star became a dad in 2012, three years after marrying Faris. The former couple divorced in 2018, and he wed Schwarzenegger the following year.

“They’ve got me wrapped around their finger. It’s wild,” Pratt said of his little girls.

He now takes more voice roles so he can be home with his family more.

Earlier this week, Pratt got mixed reactions from fans after wishing Schwarzenegger, 34, a happy Mother’s Day without mentioning Faris, 47.

“Witnessing you be a mom to Lyla and Eloise and a stepmom to Jack makes me fall more and more in love with you every day,” he wrote on Instagram. “The 24/7 job of scheduling, transporting, loving, nurturing, managing calendars, planning activities, the nutrition, the boundaries, the rules, the patience, the gentleness, the firmness, the wisdom, and grace. It’s truly a marvel.”

Many of the “Guardians of the Galaxy” star’s followers wondered why he made no mention of the “House Bunny” actress in his tribute.

The “Parks and Rec” star faced backlash when he celebrated Schwarzenegger on Mother’s Day without mentioning Faris.

However, others were on Pratt’s side and pointed out that there was no reason for him to praise his ex-wife.

The “Passengers” star also faced backlash in November 2021 when he snubbed Faris — and Jack — by thanking Schwarzenegger for giving him a “healthy daughter.”

Fans were quick to point out at the time that Jack was born prematurely, weighing only 3 pounds, 10 ounces.
