Chris Pratt has gotten quite the salary bump since starring in the horror/comedy Cursed Part 3.
During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show (airing Thursday), the Jurassic World star chatted with DeGeneres about the year he spent living in his van in Maui, Hawaii when he was 19, and the film that got him on his feet.
Pratt showed a picture of himself standing next to his Scooby-adorned van, holding the script that he claims "got me out of Maui."
"That script is for Cursed Part 3. The movie that I got paid $700 to do," he recalled. "I was like, 'Score! I live in a van. ...Woo hoo!'"
The 35-year-old actor must have been pretty good with his money, because he told DeGeneres, "That $700 lasted me one year."
Pratt just returned to Maui to shoot the blockbuster sequel Jurassic World, and admitted that the experience wasn't lost on him.
"It's so surreal. One of those weird full circle things that happens in life," he said. "I mean, I was having the time of my life at 19 years old -- just like living in a car with my friend."
Shocked that the action star had a roommate in the van, DeGeneres joked that it probably wasn't easy to bring a girl home. "You'd be surprised," Pratt bragged. "You'd be surprised."
