Hollywood star, Chris Pratt has revealed he was unable to have sex after he piled on weight for his role in TV sitcom "Parks and Recreation".

He played  loveable "Andy Dwyer" in the hit show "Parks and Recreation", which required him to pile on the pounds and keep the weight on for season after season.

The 35-year-old hunk is married to "Scary Movie" actress  Anna Faris with whom he has two-year old son,Jack.

Chris expressed, "I was impotent, fatigued, emotionally depressed. I had real health issues that were affecting me in a major way. It's bad for your heart, your skin, your system, your spirit".

"I saw myself in an episode and in the matter of two moments very close together, I thought, 'Oh my God, I'm getting fat. And then almost immediately I did something else and I thought, 'Holy crap, I've never seen myself funnier.' And I put the two together", Chris explained in an interview with Men's Health Magazine.

"I'd gone back and forth, lost weight for "Moneyball", got fat again, then trimmed down for "Zero Dark Thirty", then gained it all back again for Andy. That's when I saw Zero Dark Thirty and right after walking out I was like: "I'm going to get in shape and I'm never going to be fat again,"e explained.
