Playing Chris Pratt Revisits the Moment in 2010 When He Predicted He'd Star in 'Jurassic World'

In 2010, Chris Pratt was still a little-known actor on Parks and Recreation, but he was already making big predictions for his future, albeit unknowingly.

Five years ago, Pratt filmed a behind-the-scenes video on his NBC comedy in which he pretends to be blowing off Steven Spielberg.

"I just got a text message from Steven Spielberg -- so annoying," Pratt joked in the video. "I'll have to get back to you later about Jurassic Park 4."

Five years later, Pratt is just days away from opening night of his summer film, Jurassic World.

"It was a joke that I made," Pratt told ET during the Jurassic World junket.

"I guess it just goes to show that if you read the book The Secret and you put things out there, they all come true," he joked.

At the time when he was fake-texting Spielberg, Pratt weighed about 300 pounds and was yo-yo dieting for roles.

"I was looking into the future," Pratt said. "I was like, 'There's this job. I really want that job. I need to get in shape.' But it was when I saw the movie Zero Dark Thirty for the first time where I was like, 'Damn, I believe that guy is kind of like a believable tough guy.'"

The 35-year-old actor made another "prediction" during our interview.

"I guess I would put out there that I apologize for how long I went on in my Oscar speech," Pratt joked. "I am really thrilled about the Oscar that I won for Best Cinematography, oddly."
