July/August 2014 Men's Fitness cover subject Chris Pratt shed some 60 pounds for his role in Guardians of the Galaxy, which hit theaters on August 1 and also starred Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel. While he admitted his friends made fun of him after posting this photo, most of the publicity and responses he got were pretty positive. On top of hitting the gym, Pratt also gave up beer for six months in order to lose the weight.
